According to Lou radio, the Reds have signed Chris Burke to a minor league deal with a spring invite. He was a former college all american, first round uber prospect coined to replace Craig Biggio in HOU. It's an interesting move because I don't see him making the Reds 25 man (unless he replaces Sutton or Rosales) and a player of his stature should be starting in AAA, but how does that happen with Cozart, Valaika, Francisco, Frasier, etc. already there.

I do fear that he is defenitely a Dusty Baker type player...formerly great but not so much anymore.

***** is also reporting the Reds have talked to Jamey Carroll and his agent, he would replace JHJ.
