Reds Sign Mike Lincoln, Still Like Weathers

10:43pm: Reds GM Walt Jocketty says that even with the Lincoln signing he still hopes to sign David Weathers.  Four or five other teams are said to be in the mix for Stormy.  We’ll know by midnight Sunday whether Weathers will accept the Reds’ offer of arbitration.

3:49pm: La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says the Twins were "hot after" Lincoln and were "barely outbid" by the Reds.  The Twins weren’t in on Bob Howry though.

12:43pm: According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Reds re-signed reliever Mike Lincoln to a two-year deal worth $4MM plus incentives.  Lincoln, 34 in April, posted a 4.48 ERA in 70.1 innings this year.  His command was respectable, though he was prone to the longball. It was an impressive comeback from two Tommy John surgeries.
