    To me, the fact that never-rans like Nick Martini can generate six pages is a testament to how moribund the franchise still is in many ways. I do think these threads will provide excellent chaff for future Bruce Berenyi posts.

    In fairness a good third of the posts are Martini pun attempts.

    I think it says more about Redzone posters then it does the organization.

    I guess. But I doubt Cardinalzone or Yankeezone even registers a move like this. In a consistently competitive organization, they’re not picking up discarded scratch off tickets.

    Every tram picks up guys like Martini, or Jones, or considers over the hill guys who might have a bounceback year. Every team, every year. It's just that the consistent winning teams don't count on them as starters but as AAA depth for injuries or as the 25/26th man. Redszone though, has a tendency to micro examine every minor league invite or waiver claim as if a savior has been found - or - to mock the move as evidence the FO sucks. 6 pages worth just on Martini, Shafer and Herget.
    99% of all numbers only tell 33% of the story so when looking at the numbers remember that numbers is plural...

    Maybe he'll have a great season, maybe not. Hey, if the guy has one super great season with the Reds this season then falls off the cliff the rest of his life I'll be happy to have had him for his time with the club..
