Per Mo Egger on WLW with Billy Cunningham.

Reason according to Mo was "right elbow soreness."

Is this the move that puts David Ross on the roster, or seperate?

I'd say it was the move. He was pretty clearly headed to AAA otherwise. This way they don't have to use an option -- yet.

I think Freel is going to be shopped VERY heavily in the next 15 days.

Per team press notes. Hopper is being placed on the DL retroactive to Saturday with a right elbow inflammation. Nice to see the three catcher setup back, not sure how they survived with just two.

I have to say I'm surprised. I just couldn't see Javy Valentin surviving the day.

This gives Walt another week or so to sort out the catching situation. Maybe he can flip one of the three for something useful. Doubtful but we can hope.

I'm guessing that Javy Valentin is going to be on the way out.

With Votto hitting well, Hatteberg has become the team's first LH-PH option off the bench. Valentin's just taking up space, at this point.

for the time being I am not sure the Reds have a better PH option than Javy. I would say his days as a Red are numbered(same goes for Hopper)

LOL, I hope this "elbow" "injury" clears up soon. I wonder how he "hurt" himself.

Maybe he was actually swinging the bat instead of bunting. ;)

That can cause an elbow injury? Crap, I better be more careful from now on.

I wonder if Marty will find the strength to go on the air today, what with such a real and unexpected tragedy befalling the greatest player the Reds have ever seen.

Not to nitpick but that point was reached two years ago. He should have been shipped out after the '06 season.

... instead he was given an extension. Signing replacement level players(or below) to extensions probably had a lot to do with the end of the line.

Guys like Castro, Valentin, Cormier, Freel, Coffey, etc are fungible.

Narron has a Jocketty voodoo doll and he engineered this.

I was listening to 700WLW (I think yesterday) and they were discussing Hopper's surgery and how serious his injury is. For some reason, I remembered posting this when he was first on the DL. At the time, it seemed to me that the Reds were putting him on the DL only because they needed to open up a roster spot. Obviously, I was wrong, and therefore I am bumping this thread to apologize both to the Reds and to Norris Hopper (in all seriousness and without any sarcasm).

I doubt the Reds or Norris Hopper care very much what I say on this board, but my accusation still hanging out there in internet/google land, and hopefully this will correct that.
