Happy Reds birthday, Alfredo Simon!

Big Pasta

May 8, 1981

The Detroit Tigers foolishly rewarded Alfredo Simon with a $5.5 million contract after a fair (but not great) performance in 2014 with the Reds. He was an All-Star, but showed that to be just a flash of brilliance, faltering to a 5.05 ERA in 2015. The Reds took him back in 2016, and his ERA went up to 9.36 to go along with a 2-7 record.
