    Re: Reds sign David Carpenter (to minor league deal)

    Seems like more of a potential major league transaction attempt to polish up a limited skill set guy later in his career. Seems fair to post here imo.

    Iím personally confused why a moderator wouldnít either just move the post where the established guidelines suggest or if itís grey, bring it up with the other mods.

    Throwing it in the middle of the conversation was actually disruptive to the thread conversation and seemingly the opposite of the mods job.

    The most interesting aspect of this to me is that it apparently was announced by Boddy via the Driveline twitter account. Combine that with the Bauer interview and it seems that the Reds are building a case for Bauer to want to stay.

    It's a 34 year old reliever who has played in 4 mlb games in the past 4 seasons.

    I was giving klw a chance to explain why he posted it here instead of there, in case there was something I was missing. I could have simply moved it, but I was being nice and wanted to see what he had to say first.

    My sincerest apologies if that question distracted you from discussing David Carpenter's minor league signing with the Reds.

    Carry on.

    Feel free to close this and simply post the info over on the other thread. Heyman tweet about Broddy's announcement was how I found out and Heyman did not say it was a minor league deal with an invite. By the time I knew, I had this thread made. Doubt there will be much discussion of note on the merits of this or its impact on who else they bring in for pen spots or Broddy's growing and unusual influence on the system (as there is a nascient thread on that in the minor league section)

    No need for the sarcasm.... not trying to be a jerk here... itís just kind of factual... your tact did derail the intended conversation well before I added my 2 cents.

    I do question whether your being honest here... if your motive was to play ball and give the conversation a chance, thatís really a conversation that should have been taken offline. You didnít need to involve me and the rest of the peanut gallery in that conversation.

    As far as where this belongs? Itís a 34 year old journeymen thatís works out with Bauer at our pitching guruís camp where he is showing interest in working with him.

    It has the feel of a fringy mlb roster move than a long term development move for a prospect (which is really the intention of the minor league forum)... again two cents... As a user of the board Iíd rather this be here than there, and I wouldnít have seen the conversation if it were there.

    David Carpenter hype has hit an all-time high.

    How will Chris Carpenter ever explain this to his son?
    And this one belongs to the Reds

    Shall we discuss all the unnecessary threads on this board? If I'm disinterested I click out of it. Simple.

    When we trade David Carpenter, Siri, and Okey to Cleveland for Lindor, can it be posted in both forums? Asking for a friend?

    I, for one, am glad the Reds were able to hammer out a deal with Carpenter. They’ve been nailing it this offseason.
