    Milton to undergo Tommy John surgery

    per Trent:

    Reds just released this news: Eric Milton is scheduled to have Tommy John surgery Friday and is done for the season. At the end of the year, his contract will expire, so we might have seen the last of him in a Reds uniform.

    In other news, Bill Bray has been recalled from his rehab assignment because of left shoulder inflammation.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That sucks about Bray!

    I hope it's not serious and resolves itself quickly.

    Good Luck, Eric.

    OK, well that's that. Let's just hope that we don't see an Eddie Guardado or Paul Wilson contract offered to him. I don't want to see another dime spent on him

    That does but with Guardado coming back it'd be a squeeze to get Bray on this roster. Let's just get him healthy for next year

    I don't wish surgery on anyone, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't relieved to hear the official news that his Reds career was over. Even if it wasn't TJ surgery, Milton couldn't come back and take the mound for the Reds again this season. It would have been a slap in the face to every fan who bought a ticket to see that game. One way or another, his season had to come to an end.

    Bad news about Bray. I'm getting the distinct impression something's seriously wrong with his wing and they just haven't identified it yet. Hope I'm wrong.

    Re: Milton to undergo Tommy John surgery

    I'm not particularly sorry to hear that Milton will not be pitching any more for the Reds this year but I am sorry to hear that he will undergo TJ surgery. I would never be happy about that for anyone. For all the difficulties he went through Milton was pretty cool about it. He never went 'Danny Graves' on the fans and he always took the ball when asked.

    Whether or not the Reds will offer him a Paul Wilson type of contract is, to me, doubtful but stranger things have happened.

    Like redsfan30, I too hope that Reds fans show their great class in this thread.

    Okay....So now that we're hearing things about Bray's shoulder, that leaves only Gary Majewski standing (just barely) from the Trade.

    Yipes.

    Not exactly. We've got Thompson pitching pretty well in A Ball. Truth be told it was a rotten trade on both sides. Just look at the standings...

    Even though he wasn't the best pitcher money could buy, you have to give Milton credit for taking the ball every fifth day.

    Well wishes and speedy recoveries, Eric.

    Maybe Milton was hurt the whole time?

    Kidding. I really hope he rests his arm and leg and wins 20 games next year, or at least the year after.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    And the outstanding years Kearns and Felipe are having. Brays shoulder has been an issue for the last month or so, so this isn't anything new.
