Apparently, Reds GM Wayne Krivsky is part of a small cult that survives on sacrifices of blood of middle relievers.
Why do I say this?
Because the Reds went and picked up another middle reliever: Scott Schoeneweis. The Reds will send a player to be named later to Toronto in exchange for the lefty.
Presumably, Schoeneweis will take over Kent Mercker's role. Mercker is out for the season and needs elbow surgery. Brian Shackelford has been up and down and also in jail, but Shackelford was cleared of any wrongdoing.
