Remember how their young pitchers are better than our young hitters?

A change of scenery isn't bringing his fastball back.

If the cost is league min and a AAA roster spot, then sure, why not, said every GM ever.

Surely the Reds will take him. He either continues to be terrible or he becomes what he once was. Either of those outcomes would be good for them.

And so they did. I'm sure pitching at GABP will cure what ails him.

That’s like the worst place for him to go with the ballpark and their inability to develop/work on any pitching. I’m pretty shocked he didn’t end up on one of the West Coast teams with a bigger park (which is like all of them).

The Reds have the worst record in the NL so they had dibs. At least that's how it used to work.

That’s right. Thought he was free to sign with whoever and then a trade could be worked out, but that’s wrong.

I think that's how revocable waivers work.
