    2001 and 2002 he was good....

    Something tells me 2008 won't be like 2001 or 2002.



    Low risk move though, which is never a bad thing.

    BR has no record of him being in the majors or minors since '04. Anyone have an idea as to what he has being doing during that time? Independent? Japan? Mexico? Beer-league softball?

    Just what we need, another right who doesn't miss bats and doesn't have great control. Gary Majewski better watch his back. Lincoln could take his spot in Louisville.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Elbow surgery to end his 2004 campaign and hasn't been in the majors since: http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/new...l&ymd=20050604

    He's no Abe Lincoln.
    "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."

    C.Trent's blog:

    "Reds sign RHP Mike Lincoln
    Tuesday 02-05-2008 5:42pm ET
    The Reds have signed former Cardinals (and Pirates) pitcher Mike Lincoln to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. This will probably be as productive as Kerry Ligtenberg, but without the facial hair stylings."

    Yet Kevin Mench remains unsigned.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Minnesota connection.
