Ramon Hernandez is now a former Red. Clutch Man Monie has signed a two-year deal with Colorado. That ends a pretty good three-year tenure for Hernandez behind the plate in Cincinnati.

I’m not surprised Ramon is leaving, but I was very surprised at how productive he was as a Red. I wish him nothing but the best of luck, and will remember his Reds career in a positive light.

Time to turn the page. Looks clear that Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan will be the catching tandem in 2012, as we had hoped. This could be fun.
