    Cormier is gone! Salmon is here!

    Sweet!


    Also today, the Reds designated for assignment LHP Rheal Cormier and recalled from Louisville RHP Brad Salmon. Salmon will wear uniform number 53.

    Whatever the results, it was the right move. Salmon's shot is now. McBeth takes his spot in AAA and the bullpen has a little more stuff than it had.

    The applause you hear is me clapping for WK.

    Thank God Cormier is gone.

    However, I would have prefered Medlock or McBeth over Salmon.

    All in all, it's still a good move. Not going to complain.

    Trust me Rheal will wind up on a team that will be in the pennant race ie Cards or Cubs and or back for Philly. The right team will give him an shot and he will do good job for them just my thoughts.

    So, then by that logic the Reds asking price has been too high for the past month. I have little doubt they've been attempting to move him. If all those clubs are interested, I'd think they could come up with a mid level prospect for him rather than chance a bidding war later or having to guarantee a second year like WK did last year.

    Not really. He had 7 saves last year, 4 the year before, 3 the year before that.

    that is not a great move, it was simply done after it had become obvious to everyone not in a coma.

    I agree, the asking price may have been too high, but those teams probably knew after opening day and the reds keep 3 LH that he was a lame duck, and it just became a waiting game. I'm shocked the Reds traded for him, had to sign him to an extra year to get him, then turned around 9 months later and release him. I applaud the move, but good grief Krivsky have some foresight.

    You have to think he tried to trade Cormier and got no takers.
