Reds Interested in Isringhausen

Fox Sports is reporting that the Cincinnati Reds are looking for middle relief pitching and have considered Mets reliever Jason Isringhausen in trade talks.

Reds have had internal discussions about a number of middle and setup relievers. The list includes Jim Johnson and Koji Uehara of the Orioles; Jason Isringhausen of the Mets; Jason Frasor of the Blue Jays; and Todd Coffey of the Nationals.

Cincinnati general manager Walt Jocketty is familiar with Isringhausen from their time together in St. Louis, and Isringhausen pitched in the Cincinnati system last year.

Before deciding on joining the Mets this year, the Reds offered Isringhausen  a spot in their spring training camp.

    I like Izzy but he should go to a contender not a pretender. We don’t need him now and I would like to see our young guys pitch in big situations so we know what we have for next year. Good luck to Izzy, I just hope we get something decent for him. Our minor leagues needs all the help we can get. Maybe we can package F-Mart in the deal or Tehada to get back a better outfield prospect or better SS prospect that can start next year.

      The Reds seem like a pretender this year. The Mets is just pretend on the postseason front.
