    Of course, Hamilton and Burton weren't minor league free agents.

    But Carlos Pena was. And last year, he had the best season in the history of the Tampa franchise, and had a better offensive year than any Red has had (in my opinion) since Joe Morgan in the 1970's.

    A franchise like Cincinnati needs to make better use of these low-risk bets.

    One guy on Spitball's list stands out above all others. I would sign this guy without hesitation, without a medical evaluation, without anything. He's never gotten above Double-A, having been buried in the Indpendent Leagues and then the Yankees system.

    I'm speaking of Scott Patterson, rhp (Yankees).

    Find four other guys like him, and you'll be able to put together a good bullpen at the major league minimum, the same way the Angels did in 2002. That sort of thing leaves plenty of money to gobble up players in other areas.

    Other guys on the list worthy of a minor league contract with major league incentives, if healthy:

    Larry Bigbie (Braves)
    Jesse Foppert (Giants)

    and to keep the clubhouse loose: Chris Farley (Yankees)

    Re: Minor League Free Agents

    I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Chan Ho Park if he is healthy and is willing to pitch in relief. He pitched very well in the WBC as a closer.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
