Release the McCracken

According to a story on the official site, the Reds signed another old guy, Quinton McCracken, to a minor league contract yesterday.

McCracken, who will turn 36 years old next month, batted .237 in 134 games with Diamondbacks last season. A lifetime .276 hitter over his 11 seasons in the Major Leagues, he has also played for the Rockies, Devil Rays, Twins and Mariners.

If McCracken earns a spot on the Reds 25-man roster out of camp, he will earn $600,000.

This is, like, move #19 out of 22 for general manager Wayne Krivsky since he started last week. I'm worried that he's not getting the rest he needs. You know what they say: a healthy general manager is a good general manager.
