    Mark Mulder anyone?

    From Fay:

    The Reds will at least explore signing left-hander Mark Mulder, whose option was turned by the Cardinals last week. "I've got to see what the medical situation is," Jocketty said. "I traded for him and re-signed him. I obviously liked him."
    "Bring on Rod Stupid!"

    I wasn't aware that Mark Mulder could actually still throw a ball left-handed, much less pitch...

    I don't see him doing much for this team.

    Also from Fay:

    I talked to Walt Jocketty today to get a little pre-vacation update (my vacation, not his):

    --The Reds have talked to agents for the David Weathers, Jerry Hairston Jr., Mike Lincoln, Javy Valentin and Jeremy Affeldt. They won't likely bring all five back.

    "We're piecing things together," Jocketty said. "Nothing's imminent. We're seeing what their expectations are."

    --Jocketty said the Reds "haven't discussed" pursuing Ken Griffey Jr., who option was reportedly turned down by the Chicago White Sox. I'd take that as a polite way of saying: "We're not interested."

    Why even talk to the agent of Valentin? He's terrible, we don't need him.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    14 years ago:

    The Cincinnati Reds, still trying to sort out their starting rotation for next season, threw Jack Morris into the mix today. Cincinnati signed the 39-year-old right-hander to a $600,000, one-year contract that gives him the chance to earn another $1.4 million in performance bonuses based on innings pitched.

    I wish them all the best and hope that they each receive a better offer with another team.

    The Reds, always trying to hang on to remnants from the past of a ship that has sailed and sank.

    Why the hell would you be talking to Javy Valentin's agent? WHY

    To make sure Javy has all his personal belongings removed from GABP and any other Reds facilities.

    The Devil you know...?
    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.

    Re: Mark Mulder anyone?

    I suspect talking to Javy's agent is no more than courtesy. Javy's agent calls, says, "Hey Walt, let's have lunch etc.", Walt says ok. He may have to deal with this guy again, there's no reason to bad mouth Javy while the guy's still trying to catch on with another team etc. I wouldn't take it as meaning anything whatsoever.

    I've been a Reds fan for too long...

    Re: Mark Mulder anyone?

    Even if they don't plan on resigning Javy, it is good business to talk to his agent--he probably represents other players, and one day, the Reds may want to sign one of them--therefore, it's just good sense to talk to be on good terms with Javy's agent.

    As for Mulder, I'd kick all the tires and make sure the contract is incentive laden.

    hey, he was good in 2005.
    "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."

    When did this Mulder guy start playing baseball?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I can't see the Reds risking the wrath of all their female fans by not re-signing Javy.
