Reds to cut Stanton
Our man in Florida, John Erardi, reports that the Reds are going to cut Mike Stanton. Bob Castellini has to write a $3.5 million check to do that. Pretty big commitment to trying to win this season.
I've got the bullpen as Francisco Cordero, David Weathers, Jeremy Affeldt, Todd Coffey, Jared Burton, Kent Mercker and Mike Lincoln. That would mean Jim Brower gets cut, and Matt Belisle either goes on the DL or gets cut. There's also possibility that Brower or Belisle stays as the long guy, and Lincoln doesn't make it. Of course, I didn't didn't think they'd cut Stanton, so take those predictions with a grain of salt.
