Reds Sign Milton

Posted in Baseball at 3:13 pm by

Despite rumors that the Indians were nearing a deal with free agent P Eric Milton, the AP is reporting that the veteran left-hander has signed a 3 year, $25.5 million (thank you, Kris Benson) contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

Milton was 14-6 in 2004 for the Philadelphia Phillies, made the All-Star team in 2001 and threw a no-hitter for the Twins on 9/11/99 — truly a a memorable event, but not one worthy of such somber rememberence as we’ve strangely seen around the sports world the past few years.

    That No Hitter was against the a California Angels club that dumped Vaugn, Salmon, Finley and Oliveres. I think Erstad sat down that day as well. it was also a 11:00 Am start on a Staurday in the fall so the gophers football squad could play later that day.
    putting the over flown angels at a further disadvantage. Still it was a no no.

    While we’re working on excuses for the ’99 Angels, let’s not forget that their uniforms that year were really fucking ugly, too.
