Reds Update

Forget about a free agent pitcher of any quality. John Fay has the story in today's Enquirer.

But they are finding it is increasingly difficult to sign players. That's going to be the case for a club coming off five straight losing seasons - players tend to find reasons to sign elsewhere when a team is so far removed from success.

Interesting projection on Redleg Nation, gathered from another site.

Here was my comment:

Well, the Reds only need average pitching to be a decent team, if the offense produces anything like it did last year. You’re right to shave off some of the peaks from last season, but even given that, the tragedy of the Reds is that average pitching would get it done for us.

Is Paul Wilson expected to go…123 innings at league average for him would make a major difference.
