Reds - Signed Crosby

Cincinnati Reds - Signed SS Bobby Crosby to a 1-year contract worth $400,000.

Nice little signing by the Reds.  Crosby is a good player that had a 2006 season ruined by injury and he could still recov…

..oh, this is Bubba Crosby?  Replace Bobby with Bubba, SS with OF, and anything that sounds complimentary with something that sounds, umm, not.  I’d rather spend a week watching T.J. Simers dancing in a burlesque show than watching Bubba Crosby play baseball.  There’s little chance of Krivsky getting something useful for Crosby - if he could only get a couple of middle relievers and Royce Clayton for Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns, he wouldn’t even be able to get a case of the clap for Crosby.

Crosby just looks like a baseball player. You can never have enough guys like him on your team.

The clap *is* surprisingly hard to get.
