David Weathers is guaranteed $1.35 million under the terms of the deal he signed with Cincinnati today.
Ben Weber gets $600,000 in 2005. Weathers' contract calls for a $1.25 million salary next season and includes a 2006 option at $1.25 million to $1.6 million with a $100,000 buyout. The option would become guaranteed if he has 55 appearances next year. It would be guaranteed at $1.3 million if he pitches in 60 games, $1.4 million if he pitches in 65 games and $1.5 million if he pitches in 70 games. Dec. 15 - 7:59 pm et

Are you kidding me? That guy is complete trash, why is he getting any contract at all....much less a $1.35 million contract. At least it is incentive based, but luckily it's not based on the amount of ERs he'll give up, or else he'd be loaded.

Is the Reds' bullpen in that bad of shape that they have to stoop to this level? :-P Talk about a waste of precious resources.

Where is Gabe White? Could probably get Heredia from the Mets real cheap. CJ Nitkowski is alvailable also...Jim Mecir? Amazing how stiffs like these stick around year after year.

I remember he went 5-6 inning vs. the Cubs at the end of this year -- and the Cubs couldn't hit him. That's how bad the Cubs bats were down the stretch.
