Reds sign Alex Gonzalez

Peter Gammons is reporting that the Cincinnati Reds have signed shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a 3 year, $14 million deal.

This is, to me, more evidence that Wayne Krivsky doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

Last season, the Reds had a younger, better, cheaper shortstop than Gonzalez, in Felipe Lopez.

Then Krivsky traded Lopez, along with Austin Kearns, to the Washington Nationals for a handful of magic relief pitching beans.

And now, to fill a hole created by the departure of Lopez, the Reds are giving a big money contract to a not-very-good shortstop.

This is the same team, of course, that supposedly wants to move Adam Dunn because he strikes out too much.
