    AMAZING signing! Not for 2010 but for beyond. Walt you go and totally redeem yourself!

    Shoddy logic from Callis.
    Not saying I agree with his logic... I was more interested in the top 25 prospect statement... I would personally have him in the top 15...

    Wonder if he'll change his name to OchoCinco?

    I had a really good Cuban Sandwich yesterday, but I doubt he'll make it to Columbus.

    He's a real Cuban, right? Not a Dominican passing for a Cuban?

    Especially if that guy said, "He might be good in the bullpen, or whatever."
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'm shocked that the biggest signing in years has only generated ten pages of posts so far.

    I think this is pretty freaking huge.

    Outstanding move, and hopefully the Reds' coaches are able to develop him to be the stud starting pitcher that we all hope he can be.

    Now it's time for a bat or three.
