What the hell are we doing?

The Reds have just signed Jacque Jones and Daryle Ward to minor league deals.  Ward is listed as a first baseman, which is news to me.  I guess we needed depth at first base since Valentin is gone.  It bears mentioning that both of them are 33, both are crappy, and both are left-handed.  I'm really not sure what to make of these deals.  They'll be used as bench filler, but I have no idea how they make us better as a team.

As for the minor league deals?  Yeah, Corey Patterson was signed to one of those too.
