I think the reason this is somewhat important is because a lot of other teasm were after him.

Cormier is a decent pitcher. Good pick up for reds
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Great move for the reds to bolster their bullpen.

I like this move even better now.

rotoworld

Reds signed LHP Rheal Cormier to a one-year, $2.25 million extension through 2007 with an option for 2008.

It was a condition of the trade, as Cormier wasn't going to waive his 10-and-5 rights unless he got an extension. The Reds are probably overpaying to keep him, but they didn't give up much to get him and it's only a one-year extension.

I'm suprised they didn't send Dunn and Griffey to get Cormier... :-D

Although Germano is not a bad prospect, I really like this deal for the Reds. Cormier is a heck of a lefty specialist and adds to this bullpen immensely.

He's old as dirt. I can't believe he's still hanging around baseball. It seems forever ago that he was starting for the Cardinals. He's still productive, though...
