    Reds Sign Michael Wuertz

    Joel Sherman of the NY Post tweeted that the Reds have signed reliever Michael Wuertz, who had some good seasons before struggling last year with thumb and hamstring injuries and control issues, the latter being not particularly new to him.

    He will be assigned to Louisville.

    I wonder who he will replace. There isn't anyone in Louisville's bullpen who "deserves" to get sent down. I wonder if an injury has occurred.

    Things are going to get Wuertz before they get better.
    "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."

    As I assumed, Wuertz will first report to Goodyear.

    Looks like things are getting Wuertz and not better.

    Here we are over-reacting again on Redszone. This is a Wuertz case scenario we are talking about guys, settle down.

    I hear that when Wuertz was a kid, he was a brat.

    This is a joke right? Carroll, Webb, Fisher, Smith, Christiani not to mention loads in the rotation like Gallagher and Brackman. Its long past time to cut bait on a few of them. I'd probably keep Webb since he's a lefty and Christiani could be sent to AA if need be. The rest can go.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    But he wanted to grow up to be a Met(t).
