Saved By The Reds--For Now

Enjoy the temporary reprieve from Jim Boden's stupidity. The glean in Jimbo's eye, Paul Wilson has re-signed with the Reds.

Unfortunately, this means we'll probably end up with a different stiff. It's not that Paul Wilson is a bad player. It's just that he isn't good enough to warrant a 3-year contract. This is a team with an abundance of fourth starters. There's no need to lock one up for more than a year or two, unless he's a really solid pitcher. (see: Clement, Matt)

We've got plenty of cheap in-house alternatives. There's no sense in flushing even more money down the crapper for marginal improvements, at best.
