    Re: Braves Sign Willy Taveras

    Not including the Reds' salary dump, Taveras was released for the fourth time this year today. This time, it was by the Braves. He hit .119/.213/.143 for their AAA team.

    Shooting for last place in your triple A fantasy league were you? Don't fret Josh Anderson has to be available.

    Would love to see Mark McGwire take a shot at "fixing" him.

    Many have summed it up to say, "It's Jamie Quirk's fault." Apparently he was the one who pushed hard for the Reds to sign him, but he's no longer in the organization.

    Basically, get over it, WJ has made enough good moves that he should get a pass for a dud.

    And Taveras is back. The Rangers just signed him to a minor league deal.

    I wonder how many more teams he'll sign with before the season is over.

    As the old adage goes, you can't teach speed. Lots of teams likely think they could tweak something in his swing to allow him to use that speed better. He'll likely keep getting offers for the next year or so.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
