Why is Kirk Saarloos still on the team? Is there no one else we can bring up or sign? He gives up a run seemingly every time he pitches. This is the second time he hasn't even recorded an out. Does anyone have any explanation for him still being on the team?

With out a doubt.

Has Santos signed with anyone since we released him.... maybe we can get him back.

I would rather have Ricky Stone back than Saarloos.

Nothing like an afternoon cup of Coffey to wash down a helping of Saarloos. Throwing those two out there in a tie game is like Ned Yost opening a Wonka bar to discover a golden ticket. Not that there are any better options, mind you, so can't really fault Mac.

If there isn't anybody at Louisville who can do better than Saarloos, the Reds really have a problem.

I would have to say I am extremlely disappointed in Saarloos this season. When he was brought in during the offseason I was excited about his potential. Being a groundball pitcher that showed flashes of great ability while pitching for Oakland I thought he may be one of the Reds breakout players this season. Unfortunately he's been a train wreck! It has to be time to get Bray and even Maj back up here and see what they can do.

Yea, Bill Bray and probably even Gary Majewski.

Santos accepted his assignment to AAA; the Reds still have him. He has a 1.93 ERA in Louisville.

The difference between he and Saarloos:

A) Saarloos has options and can be sent to Louisville without exposing him to waivers

B) Santos has not been seen hemorrhaging runs and baserunners at the big league level as recently

Picking between these two is like asking whether you want to eat mayonnaise that has sat in the sun for three weeks or a month.

Saarloos/Coffey out.

Bray and Salmon in.

That wasn't too hard, Wayne.

Throw Stanton in and bring McBeth back.

He would clear waivers quicker than Ricky Stone:bang::bang:

and what would we be losing if someone else did pick him up?

I think we should give him a few more chances. Maybe a few starts.....

What's up with Kirk Saarloos? After getting an endorsement from Scott Hatteberg on the basis of their time on the Oakland A's, the comedic review of I Love Loosy has been a bust and requires an immediate cancellation!

I'll admit it...at the beginning of the season I wanted Saarloos as the 5th starter...glad I'm not in charge.

I still don't see why Saarlos is still on the team and Salmon is in the minors; Brad Salmon had the second-best era on the team.

I think Dumatrait will be called up and Sarrloos will go down tomorrow.

Phil just pitched last night, so they would not bring him up for at least 3 or 4 days unless someone gets hurt.

Why?
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

They would have to pay him for rest days and I don't see this FO doing that, not after they sent Bailey down right before the All Star Break "so that he could stay on his work schedule (and we don't have to pay him MLB $)"

They should have kept him up and rested his hammy, maybe he would not be back on the DL again.

Give it another week. I'm betting that they have been trying to polish these guys up for trade bait. So far it's not working. I'm expecting a bullpen overhaul by the time they get to Pittsburgh next week. Even if they aren't able to trade either Saarloos or Coffey, I would guess they don't want to make any more moves than necessary before the trade deadline in case they would need to call someone up immediately.

They pulled him after 5 innings when he was dominating the game and only threw 66 pitches for a reason.

Your theory would make sense if they didn't have to pay whoever is on the roster instead of him MLB $. Also, Bailey has a groin, not hammy, issue.

They could release Sarloos who is making MLB$$$ and are under no obligation to fill that roster spot immediately.
They have done this at least once already this year if my memory serves me.


I can type I just can spell, isn't this the same groin problem that he had before?

I believe Saarloos is going back down to AAA and Santos is back in the bigs...

Do we really need to see Santos again? Lets get someone who will be here in 2008 up here.

Well, he's still in the organization, but at least he's not on the team anymore.
