    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Not so sure this is the best medicine for a team flailing on offense.

    Willie T is going to AAA, and replacing our old friend Dewayne Wise.

    The way the Phillies have been hitting lately, he might be the team's cleanup hitter soon.

    And they released him.

    The Phillies released Willy Taveras, MLBTR has learned. The Phillies signed the speedy outfielder earlier in the month, not long after the Nationals released him. The A's, who are paying most of Taveras' $4MM salary, released him in February, so this marks the third time the former NL stolen base champ has been released this year.

    I was hoping Willy and Castro could be in the same lineup.

    The Phils are the new Nats, who were the old Reds. Or something.

    Thankfully the Reds signed Gary Mathews Jr. Otherwise, they may have considered this guy to fill their supposed need.

    I'd rather play a man short than have Willy on my team. Worst major league player I've ever seen.
