Just when you think it’ll all finally change…

…you notice this headline on your Reds feed:

Reds could bring back Weathers

Considering that he did about as well in the closer spot a couple years back making $2.5 million as Cordero did this year pulling down $10 million, it may be a thrifty approach. Makes it hard not to roll your eyes, though. Same old Reds.

No Adam Dunn next year, though, unless they sign him as a free agent. Boy, that would be a great move on his part, wouldn’t it? Out of the frying pan and back into the frying pan. What’s the speculation on where Dunn will end up next year? And what’s the whole draft pick situation with him? I’ve always been a little confused by that one.

Even Griffey remains in the Reds headlines, as he was named a “public diplomacy envoy” by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and charged with spreading “the values of the United States” by helping to spark “interest in America and in our culture.” He’ll go to Panama in January to begin this mission while his agent is working out where he’ll sign, seeing as he’s a free agent this year too.
