    Apparently this is what Dusty meant when he said that he could 'attract some players'.

    These two guys don't even belong in a major league camp as verified by the fact that we're 10 days into ST and no one wanted them. Then the Reds and Dusty came along.

    I'd say it's worth a minor league contract. What in the world do we have to lose- Norris Hopper plate appearances?
    20/20 out of Patterson?!?!

    How many ABs do you foresee him getting to create that kind of production?

    I loathe Dusty. I loathe Corey. I loathe Hairston. Yet, I just bought three tickets to a game in May...guess I'll never learn

    This should excite those three Reggie Taylor fans in Cincinnati.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Well, when they said 'south side' they didn't necessarily mean Chicago. :

    And I'm called alarmist when I point out that the most ballyhooed prospect perhaps in Reds' history has an injury history that's been kept under wraps.

    How exactly do these two players hurt this team in a non-contending year?

    Dusty: Now now son, the pain must be awfull, we will have to send you to AAA so you can play rightfield and not have to run on that awfull injury.
    Jay:???????????????.........
    Dusty: We just signed Rally Time Jr. and have Eric Dickersons cousin hanging around along with Farney and Hopper, we will be fine.

    Non-contending year? That's news to the Reds front office.

    What they don't know won't hurt him.

    EXACTLY. The Reds stated intentions often appear to be in direct contrast to the moves they make.

    I heard Bob C. with my own ears on Friday tell Doc on WLW how the Reds planned on contending this season.

    Re: Reds sign Patterson and Hairston to minor league deals

    Looking closer at Patterson's numbers...I think he'd make a fine bench player with some occasional starts, but I just don't see having the room for him on the roster unless Hopper or Freel goes or if they finally decide to pull the plug on Castro. With or without Bruce, somebody else has to go.

    Bob C. will find out really fast that this team isn't contending. That's when the ax will fall and Walt will be taking the wheel.

    That's my prediction.

    Now, in the grand scheme, I do like the move. Patterson is exactly what this team needs on the bench.
