Possible pick up?

On of general manager Wayne Krivsky’s credo is: You can never have too much pitching. So you’ve got to wonder if the Reds would be interested in left-hander J.C. Romero.
The Red Sox released him after designating him for assignment on June 8. He was 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA and a save in the 23 games for Boston. He walked too many – 15 in 20 innings – but he’s a former Twin so Krivsky is familiar with him.

I thought his credo was you could never have too much catching.

so he can't be one of the relievers for the Red Sox, but he would be one of our best. He's a left too. That says something about the Reds pitching.

Good line, Don.

It's funny. 1-0 with a 3.15 ERA gets you released in Boston. In Cincinnati you can be twice as bad as that and get your contract extended. Right Mr. Coffey?

I thought Krivsky's credo was: if a pitcher has a lifetime ERA over 4.50 the Reds need to trade a promising young position player for him?

I highly doubt "Walk 'em Sock 'em" Romero is the answer for the Reds' bullpen misery. His 1.95 WHIP this year was probably part of the reason Boston let him go. Last year's ERA of 6.70 for the Angels was why he left Disneyland, no doubt.

We can and should do MUCH better than signing Romero.

No its funny that people think hes good based on his ERA. If you look at his numbers you will see he has a 1.94 whip. Coffey hasn't been good this year and even his whip isn't that high.
