    Reds Re-sign Hernandez...

    Fox Sports is reporting the Reds and signed Hernandez for one more season...

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/1...cher-Hernandez
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Well, the Reds needed another catcher and Hernandez was a better option than anyone we had in AAA. The free agency market didn't look like there were too many better options either. As long as the money is reasonable it's a good move.

    Just another player for Dusty to miss use.

    You both are right. Unfortunately, any player the GM gives Dusty will be miss used somehow.

    The signing is a one year deal with a second year that vests itself after 120 games played, according to what I read on the ORG.

    Seems just fine, I see Hernandez as just about equal to any veteran C that the Reds could have signed this offseason. The fact that he is familiar with the Reds ORG and pitching staff is simply gravy.

    A great deal! Ramon should be the everyday catcher and hit 6th. He proved to be invaluable when Votto was out and don't forget he hit pretty clutch before he was hurt.

    3 million for 2010, 3.25 million for 2011 if he plays 120 games in 2010. Very reasonable I would say.

    To make it even more reasonable, Hernandez' $1m buyout is included in his 2010 salary, per DougDirt on the ORG. Nice to see Hernandez back in red next season, especially after hearing about the contract.

    And the options are? Hernandez is a MLB Catcher. People can yak about Hanigan all they want, but what was his BA with runners on? What was his RBI #? He's a back-up, period. Miller, has bounced around so much the Reds aren't the only team to realize he's nothing more than damage control filler. (Super nice guy though).

    If thats true, then I really like the deal!!! I wasnt big on the trade initially as far as him being the return, but I learned to like him and gained respect for his game overall last season, glad he will be back with us for another year. I really turned to his corner when he filled in for Votto during his time out.

    Re: Reds Re-sign Hernandez...

    It all comes down to how much money was spent. I like that it's only a one-year deal, though. As a catching tandem, you can do a lot worse than Hernanigan.

    I think it's a reasonable deal. I like the signing. They should each catch 3 to 4 games a week. Hanigan and Hernandez, that is. Split it evenly. It will keep each of them fresh.

    Dusty will overplay Hernandez and underplay Hanigan. I think Dusty prefers even Corky Miller to Hanigan based on how much the two of them played at the end of the season.

    Hanigan is a nice player, but look at how much better he played while in a platoon role. I think he wore down. It will be nice to see him splitting time with a real pro like Hernandez.

    Hanigan is also quite a light hitter. Hopefully, Hernandez can gain a little power back with his "renewed" knees.
