    Reds sign Isringhausen

    According to mlbtraderumors.com, the Reds are tentatively planning to bring in Jason Isringhausen tomorrow for a look. He last pitched for the Rays in June of last year, and since had Tommy John surgery. He thinks he'd need a couple weeks of rehab in the minors. The Cardinals, Rays, Yankees and Royals are also checking him out. They picked up the report from KFNS 590.

    I'd be tempted to give him a contract just so the Cardinals dont get him

    Do they really think that Russ Springer and Jason Isringhausen are upgrades over the likes of Ondrusek and Smith? Because I don't see it. Sending the veterans to the minors for depth is one thing, immediately promoting them to the majors and giving them a bullpen spot is a whole other thing.

    I was clearly upset by the headline that is until I read the part about TJS. Could be something there, could prove to be a very shrewd move.

    Reds are also checking out all the yard sales and curbs on garbage day, rumor has it they are also thinking about buying a whole cow instead of already cut steaks.

    Just think of the money they'll save by doing it themselves.

    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

    They were seen outside a local pawn shop...

    Also seen outside Montgomery Inn near the dumpster. They found 7 ribs that still had some meat left on the bone.

    The bullpen seems to have steadied itself lately, with Masset, Ondrusek and Smith pitching well now, but it sure is hard to have confidence when these 1-0 games reach the seventh.

    I remember a post-broken leg Ron Gant was found in a dumpster.

    But they also have found a lot of dumpster pitchers who smelled up the place like a dead possum on the side of the road.

    Izzy is worth a look at least. Let the scouts do their thing and maybe a minor league contract and see how he looks at AAA.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    At least it's not the desperate days of "We need a warm body by this weekend even if it's Rheal Cormier."

    It is 2010, not 2006. I think some of the sarcasm has been recycled from yesteryear.

    If the Yankees, Rays and Cards are in the mix, I'm happy that Cincy is as well. This isn't the same as the years of Estaban Yan and Mike Burns.

    Thing is.. If any of those teams sign him it will be a brilliant move.. If the Reds sign him it will be an organization ending move that have people scratching their heads.
