    If he takes AB's away from Heisey or Stubbs, this is a god awful move. If he's just there as insurance, it might not be so bad.

    I just threw up a little.

    I saw this coming the day he was dealt east.

    Vince Coleman was a Red for 4 minutes once, we survived.

    Can he be any worse than Nix?

    Maybe he'll find HGH again...

    If Matthews Jr. plays one game with the Reds it will be one too many. He's an awful defender in CF now and he can't hit.

    I don't really see any point to this move. I wouldn't play him over any OF they already have.

    This was incredibly predictable.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Jackson is not a crafty veteran and doesn't have a father who played when Dusty played and had a cool nickname like "The Sarge".

    Re: Reds sign Gary Matthews Jr. to minor-league deal

    I wonder if this is simply some insurance if/when Heisey gets dealt. the Reds have two young centerfielders & lots of problems elsewhere. dealing one makes sense. maybe Walt simply wants someone else who can play CF in case he trades Heisey then Stubbs goes down.

    "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."
