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? Talk about a waste of precious resources.
