Reds Say Patterson Won’t be Back

“CINCINNATI — Corey Patterson’s return to the Reds in 2009 already seemed unlikely as this season closed. Now, it’s official,” says Mark Sheldon in this story on Reds.com.

I’m glad that the return of Patterson in 2009 seemed unlikely to someone. It seemed as likely as hell to me.

Other tidbit of interest from this story:

Expect the club to make serious efforts to bring back reliever David Weathers and utility player Jerry Hairston Jr.

Whether these are good potential moves depends on what the Reds intentions are. If they’re padding the roster with decent performers, or trying to gain future favor with Weathers’ son, then it’s cool.
