Start drinking heavily open thread: Reds Sign Taveras to 2 year deal

New, comments

It's official, people.  Your new centerfielder and leadoff man is Willy Taveras.  Financial terms have not yet been disclosed, but it's a 2 year deal.

Courtesy of the Cincinnati Reds official website.  Let's just hope his OBP is a lot closer to 2007 .367 than his .308 of last year.  And, uh, hope you like stolen bases.  He should at least be better than Freel or Patterson.

I was thinking of going to the Reds Hall of Fame today.  I didn't realize that I would be missing the past quite this much.
