Rockies - Signed Redman, Kip
Colorado Rockies - Re-signed P Mark Redman to a 1-year contract; signed P Kip Wells to a 1-year contract.
Wells is in the $3 million range. I haven’t seen anything for Redman yet, but I’d be shocked if it was more than $750K-$1M or so.
If someone here has Dan O’Dowd’s ear, please tell the guy that Josh Fogg’s 93 ERA+ the last 2 years and 1 good playoff start aren’t really enough to invalidate the time-honored tradition of it not being a good plan to sign veteran starting pitchers that even the Pirates couldn’t pretend were any good. The last time the Pirates dumped an established major league starting pitcher for being downright awful and had it come back to haunt them? Mike Bielecki, I believe.
Since some injury issues, the only positive thing Wells has done was to bring a smile to the faces of Cardinals ticketholders at the moment they looked in the newspaper or on the scoreboard and saw that the game they planned on/were attending didn’t feature Mike Maroth as the starting pitcher. And Redman’s season was worse! It takes a magical kind of suck to get a major league contract after a 1.63 WHIP and a K/9 under 5 at AAA.
Anyway, I have a proposition for O’Dowd. I’ll barf on his desk for $100,000 and he’ll come out of the bargain no worse off and his organization $3.5-$4 million richer!
