According to Morosi, its the Reds, D'Backs, Cubs and National in the hunt
for Kris Benson. Reclamation project at best, one would think - 8
appearances since 2006.

Medical time bomb (SEE: Sheets, Ben). Benson missed the entire 2000 season after
he had Tommy John surgery, missed all of 2007 with a torn rotator cuff, has
spent most of his time in the minors or on the DL since then, and is 34 and
coming off a season where he got demoted to the minors after getting smacked
around like a redheaded stepchild in two starts and six relief appearances for
the Rangers. If somebody signs him, it's to get his wife Anna in the ballpark in
order to sell more tickets.
