Sources telling me that this is a done deal, pending it being completed.
I'm hearing that the deal may or may not be done. More later. Or maybe not.
"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."
Walt just said on the radio that it's very close, hopefully early next week (2 year deal).
In other words, it's done, but he hasn't taken a physical yet.
Is Mark Sheldon's typewriter broke? That guy's new nickname is "Day Late, Dollar Short Sheldon."
Does he have email? Has he heard of the company Apple?
Mark, if you are reading this on your Commodore 64, it's time to upgrade, bud.

I've got no problem with that. Seems like a good deal for both sides.
Great news. That is a good deal at $15M for 2 years.
Man.........Ludwick for 2.5 more per season than Gomes. I thought he'd get more.
