    soft-tossing righties like Weathers and Arroyo are generally bigger risks than lefties.

    so just make sure that things work out really well, Wayne. That is all we ask.

    if not, we'll get all self-righteous on you

    That doesn't seem like that much to ask, does it?

    Does it, Wayne?

    Great move, Krivdawg. Everybody makes mistakes. It's what you do to correct your mistakes that shows what kind of person you are.

    Very strong.
    Great post! Awesome decision. I am now getting a little excited about Opening Day.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Because last year, Wayne thought that the CBA called for minimum 2 year contracts.

    Does anyone think that possibly Jockerty stepped up to make this decision?

    A roster with Stanton AND Frenchie AND Milton not on it. Am I dreaming? or could this be the start of something magical?
    Witty signature.

    This has been a long time coming and now it finally has happened! So long Mike. Enjoy the 3.5mil. I know you will.

    Don't know that I say it was a "great job by Wayne" because I think this move was made by Bob Castellini with input from Walt, Dusty and Wayne. Wayne wasted a whole lot of his boss's money on Stanton. Can't see congratulating a guy for making such costly blunders in the first place.

    A very good sign to see the Reds cut-bait with a player who contributed little to nothing. I say- Great job Bob! You keep saying publicly that you're trying to improve the Reds and it shows!!! Great move when it becomes official.

    Mike Lincoln as Rheal Cormier

    Kent Mercker as Mike Stanton

    Jim Brower as Eric Milton

    and

    Juan Castro as himself
