    Sign him and trade him to the Pirates, they are in need of BP help.

    Maybe they can get some pirogies.

    I have no problem with a minor league contract. It might be nice to have an experienced reliever to teach the bullpen in Louisville a few things and to be available in case of emergency in Cincinnati.

    Agreed. Extra depth and veteran presence is never a bad thing.

    Whether they're better than Izzy is dependent on how well Izzy is throwing. Personally I hope he's throwing very well and we sign him.

    mth has posted the depth at the bullpen several times, but I can't find the thread where he did it. From looking at that list when mth posted it, I have a really hard time believing that whatever Isringhausen has left in the tank is remotely close to what the Reds have in line ahead of him at this point. Again, it's not exactly 2006 around here anymore...

    All I'm saying is I want to see what he's got left in the tank. Speaking of worrying about who's got what left in the tank, I think our first concern should be our own so-called closer.

    Frankly, I am less concerned about Cordero with Chapman and Massett on hand. And I surely don't consider the corpse of Isringhausen insurance against Cordero's potential demise.

    Anyone who can throw strikes and retire hitters is welcome to come to Spring Training and compete for a job, IMO.

    Agree. Permitting him to try out may not amount to more than a courtesy to a veteran ball player who chose to sign with the Reds last season. Why not?
