    In order to sign here, you know they gave him guaranteed money for 2011.

    I really like this signing, but he probably won't be on the big league roster until September, baring injury or someone completely collapsing in mid to late August.

    But not guaranteed in 2010?

    The Reds would undoubtedly have to EAT the majority of anything they are slated to pay CoCo...when the team signed him I remember thinking...this guy doesn't scare anybody and I am right...he doesn't because every team knows when he is on the mound e is not going to just come in and shut them down...worst contract Special K ever wrote and allowed a player to sign.

    It was undoubtedly a contract that overpaid a good-but-not-elite reliever, but the bullpen would've been in complete shambles for the majority of his tenure if not for him. I'm not saying the Reds should've offered him that kind of money, but if it's the worst contract WayK ever gave out, it's not all that bad.

    My name is Blitz Dorsey and I approve this signing.

    (Sorry for the bad joke. No one needs my approval. I do like this move though -- minimal risk, somewhat chance of a decent reward.)

    Maybe so.. I know you are just stating what you think, not complaining.

    If Issy ends up being next year's Mike Lincoln (too hurt to pitch), it's a risk worth taking. We might have a quality pen arm we desperately needed to add without giving up anything but money.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Why is Walt so into signing players from his St. Louis days? It's not like they ever won anything when he was there.

    Oh, never mind. ;-)

    I'd much rather be a Reds fan complaining about getting ex Cards opposed to being a Nat's fan complaining about getting ex Reds.

    Reds may still be shopping for reliever

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...=.jsp&c_id=cin

    I suspect by 'reliever' Walt wants a true 8th/9th inning guy. We have an improved middle relief & potential in house additions (Chapman, Izzy, Springer,etc). No need to give up talent for yet another middle innings guy.

    Re: Reds sign Isringhausen

    Last night Izzy:

    1 IP, 2H, 1BB, 1HR and 3ER.

    So far in 7 aapearances:

    5.2 IP, 4H, 7BB, 5K, 2HR, and 6ER. He's giving up more fly balls than GB and while the sample is real small, August is half over and it won't get real big. The 40 man is full. Izzy is going to need to string together some good outings to be added before Sept 1.

    Who goes if Izzy gets added?

    I'm not rooting against him but I kinda hope Isringhausen flames out in Louisville and doesn't get the chance to fail in a Reds uniform.

    Me too.

    There are already two better relievers (at least) than him in Louisville- Chapman and Burton.
