In an ESPN.com report the Cincinnati Reds may be in talks with free agent, and former New York Met(who knew right?), Gary Matthews Jr.
This could be a good fit for Sarge. The Reds certainly have a few questions in their outfield – headlined by a stagnant and very streaky Johnny ‘Fat Chomper’ Gomes and a seemingly underproducing Jay Bruce who is still coming off a broken wrist in 2009.
Matthews Jr. really hasn’t been the above average player he was with the Rangers and Angels a few years ago – probably had something to do with sticking needles in his bum…just gonna throw that out there. With that said, he’s finally healthy and after signing could be in the big-leagues within about a week.
Cheap, easy-sign, low risk, medial reward. BUT the Reds need to continue making moves to keep that Red Train a rollin’.
As for you fantasy nuts, don’t pay much attention to his return to the diamond.
