    Kip Wells Promoted

    He'll be the long man from the bullpen.

    Pretty easy to see this coming.

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    He'll have plenty of chances to eat innings.

    Wells was supposed to start in Louisville tonight.

    I'm guessing Maloney will start on short rest.

    He couldn't even stick with the Nationals.

    Kip Wells is the very definition of "journeyman pitcher". The guy has had two good years- as a starter in 2002 and 2003 with Pittsburgh. Every other year he has been below average.

    All's Wells that ends Wells.
    "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."

    I'd laugh if I didn't wasn't so worried that he's our number three starter next year if Harang and Arroyo are successfully dealt.

    Yes, but it is aged and experienced "crap".

    Then again solutions that actually worked would have been nice.

    For the first time since being with the Reds in 2009, Kip Wells is up in the Majors. He started for the Padres on Tuesday and picked up the loss. It looks like he'll pitch against the Rockies on Sunday. He has just been dreadful since 2005, so I wonder what it is that teams see in him. His numbers in AAA this year were probably even worse than you'd expect.

    You were expecting better than 4.7 bb/ 9 and 3.8 k/9?
