I have some spare time tonight, and September will be here before you know it, so why don't we vote on who we want to be called up next month. We are allowed 40 players, so we can bring up quite a few. I voted for everyone but Coffey, Smit , and Dumatrait. Coffey needs to work for next year, Dumatrait had his chance, and Smit needs some more development.

Isn't Pedro Lopez on the DL and out for the season?

I saw him as on the 15- day DL on the 40 man roster. I assume he could be ready by September.

How can you call someone up if they arent even in the minors?

Why don't you want us to see the results, Armarillo?

I believe the results will be seen at the end of the deadline a month away. The poll has a time limit, and the results will known to everyone on 9-29-2007 at 10:29 pm. In retrospect, I should have had it known to everyone from the start. I will reveal the current results so far because of my oversight and periodically do it: Homer Bailey 13 votes 65%, Todd Coffey 3 votes, 15 %, Jon Coutlangas 14 votes 70%, Marcus McBeth 14 votes 70%, Brad Salmon 13 votes 65%, Alexander Smit 0 votes, Pedro Lopez 4 votes 20%, Chris Dickerson 5 votes 25%, Phil Dumatrait 0 votes, Jay Bruce 8 votes 40%, Joey Votto 19 votes 95%

they will definately call up Cout, Coffey, and probably McBeth. They will want the extra arms for games like last night. I know Guadaro, Saarloos, and Gosling pitched well last night, but I would rather be sending McBeth and Cout out there in situations like that anyway. I would also call up Votto to see what we've got, and Dickerson for an extra OF instead of Ellison. If Bailey is healthy, I would give him some starts in Sept. as well. By the way, I'm not too excited about Coffey being back, but I think he definately will be.

I really doubt any moves for people not on the 40 man are made

They did not wait until September for Coffey. He was brought up today when Livingston went on the DL. I put Bruce on the list, but it was clear during the interview yesterday that Krivsky will keep bruce at Louisville the rest of the year.

Votto, Dickerson, Herr, McBeth, Salmon. I would say Bruce but he needs to play everyday and he wouldn't have a spot.

Everyone except for Bruce, Dumatrait and Smit.

An update from the poll. Coutlangas was called up prior to the expansion, and he got 43 of the 54 votes so far for a 79.63% vote. Homer Bailey-31 votes, 57.41%, Todd Coffey 17 votes, 31.48%, Marcus McBeth 41 votes 75.93%, Brad Salmon 33 votes 61.11%, Alexander Smit 2 votes, 3.70%, Pedro Lopez 8 votes, 14.81%, Chris Dickerson 21 votes 38.89%, Jay Bruce 18 votes 33.33%, Joey Votto the winner so far: 50 of the 54 votes for 92.59%. There was 1 vote for Dumatrait.

everyone except Coffey, Bailey, and Dumatrait. The reason behind the first two are let Bailey rest his groin he won't do Cincy any good if he's up here trying to throw hurt. Coffey let him go home work on some stuff and see if an offseason could help him find what we think he has and come to ST ready to help in the pen. Dumatrait I dunno...

As for Bruce its simple... Either A) Move Lopez to 60 day DL if he isnt going to play this year or B) Wave Bellhorn.

AmarilloRed

It's official. Dumatrait and his 14.18 ERA will make the start Saturday.I suppose this will make him a September call-up. The Apocalypse can now begin.:explode:

Why not bring up guys like McBeth and just have a bullpen day Saturday

AmarilloRed
08-31-2007, 01:33 PM
I imagine we will call up a lot of bullpen help, and even Votto might be called up.

Why is this poll open until September 30th? It should have been for like September 5th or something like that. The time frame on this poll makes zero sense.

AmarilloRed
08-31-2007, 01:44 PM
My mistake. I should have shortened the time frame, but it was late at night when I created the poll. I would change the settings on the poll, but you cannot alter a poll's settings after you create the poll. I will know better next year when I create the 2008 version of this poll.

One last post before September 1st. The Reds have said they are inclined to call up Marcus McBeth. Here are the poll results with 81 voters participating: Homer Bailey 41 votes-50.62%, Todd Coffey 26 votes-32.1%, Jon Coutlangas 60 votes-74.07%, Marcus McBeth 62 votes-76.54%, Brad Salmon 54 votes-66.67%, Alexander Smit 3 votes, 3.70%, Pedro Lopez 10 votes 12.35%, Chris Dickerson 26 votes-32.10%, Phil Dumatrait 4 votes-4.94%, Jay Bruce 27 votes 33.33%, Joey Votto 73 votes-90.12%

Wayne Krivsky said the Reds will call up more players Tuesday. The rosters expanded Saturday, but Triple-A Louisville's season ends Monday.

Krivsky wouldn't say who would get the call.

"We've got to tell the players first," he said.

Marcus McBeth got the callup Saturday because the Reds needed a right-hander in the bullpen. On Tuesday, I think you'll see pitchers who have been with the Reds earlier -- Todd Coffey, Brad Salmon, Kirk Saarloos -- plus Joey Votto and Ryan Jorgensen. I wouldn't be stunned one way or the other with Jay Bruce.

Depending on how Phil Dumatrait does tonight, I think Johnny Cueto or Matt Maloney could get a callup. If Dumatrait has another short outing, they can't continue to run him out there. Or at least I think they can't.

Homer Bailey will not be in the group called up Tuesday. He's going to pitch for Sarasota in the playoffs. "He's tweaking things," Krivsky said, "all with the idea of getting more consistent."

It does seem like Bruce might get a call. I didnt think it was a possiblity earlier but with the lizard king getting removed from the 40 man it seems like it could happen.

I would call up everybody but Smit. I love the potential of Jay Bruce, and this minor league system in general. Go Reds!!!

I would love to see Dickerson up here in September too. I don't know what his future is with the Reds. His defense is invaluable in late game situations. I just think his bat will keep him from ever being a regular starter.

Muggerd
09-01-2007, 04:13 PM
I dont really see a dickerson ever having a future on the reds. He could be some trade bait though if something was to come up.

I hope we can get something for him. You are right. His future here is basically non existant.:cool:

Not so much something for just him but I could see him being a piece of a trade some where down the line.

I'm just a little surprised that Phil Dumatrait has 0 votes in your poll, AmarilloRed. I think Dumatrait was very nervous on the mound last time and the overall results were there for all to see. Get the kid over his stage fright and I hope we still have a quality starting pitcher in Phil Dumatrait. Let's hope the Reds send him to the Arizona Fall League and have this guy ready to make a positive impact on the Reds in 2008! I realize he could go either way: Boom or Bust.

I'm anxious to see what Wayne Krivsky can do to improve the Reds for next year. But back to the question at hand, I haven't checked too well yet but I have seen that Marcus McBeth along with Phil Dumatrait were the latest players to be brought up. Hope more additions have been made already, or soon to be made, by the Reds.

Phil Dumatrait had 4 out of 85 votes. There were some people who did vote for him. I would expect more changes to come on Monday or Tuesday.

We now know who will be coming up. Joey Votto, Brad Salmon, Todd Coffey, Kirk Saarloos, and Ryan Hanigan will join the Reds in a couple of days.
