What does age have to do with it?

DFA Javy and call up him up, Patterson will go once Keppinger returns, IMO, or I at least hope so. Either way both need to go, dead weight but the only saving grace for Patterson is he can play CF, and at some point we have to have someone in case Griffey gets hurt again. I'm not wishing this but he has not gotten hurt for several seasons now and our OF dept isn't that great.

I could live with DFA'ing Valentin. We need a right handed hitting 1B. Javy is not a right handed hitter either.

Losing either Patterson or Valentin would leave the Reds with only one lefty off the bench. A team usually needs two, since most pitchers are RH. The only way Andy Phillips comes up is if the Reds decide to go with 11 pitchers. Not sure that's a great idea.
With Bruce up, the bench got a lot better with Freel their full time.

According to reports, they did just that...

I, for one, can't believe it. What's next - KGJ out of the #3 hole?!?! NAAAAHhhh.....

PEACE

Good. Ryan Freel gets more playing time.

Wow. We now have Freel/Phillips coming off the bench instead of Patterson/Hatteberg.

How we lookin?

I wasn't trying to use his age as an aggravating factor. I was just surprised that he was 31.

VERY happy with this move.

Wow, did not see that one coming at all! At least, not this fast, LOL :lol:

Go Andy and YAY Walt for making this decision! :)

As was mentioned earlier, there's one more move they have to do, get Griffey out of the three spot.

Goodbye Corey Patterson, hopefully for good. Was Walt just waiting to see how last night went with Bruce? I kind of thought Corey would be moved before Bruce came up.:beerme:

He must be the most expensive Player in AAA, does anyone know if he has a split contract? That Pays him 3 Million in the bigs, or a different Salary if he is in the minors?

Now, the burning question is:

Does Brandon Phillips get the all-impressive "B." placed on the back of his jersey?? Or is A. Phillips's tenure more a splash of coffee?

WOWOW!!! Bye Corey!No more crappy ABs at the top of the order!

That's my guess, too. Edwin could use a week off.

I was discussing this with my roommate earlier today. I know there are penalties in the NFL if you switch name or number on your jersey without the proper notification by a certain date due to merchandising purposes. Since it doesn't seem as if MLB jerseys are a HUGE source of revenue like in the NFL I'm not too sure what (if any) restrictions may apply.

this really shows what an unbalanced roster Krivsky broke camp with. He should have brought up Phillips and DFA's Hatte out of spring training. Not that it would have made a huge difference, but the Reds have been needing a RH bat of the bench all season.

Plus the signing of Corey Patterson and the use of him in Center & Lead OFF had to have atleast cost the Reds a few wins...

This is great news! But it would have been even better if AAA meant the American Automobile Association:D

Hopefully this is the beginning of Walt forcing Dusty to play good players. Good move all the way. Hairston is still a problem in the field but he sure is hitting.

Yeah, Jocketty just might make Dusty start to look good. ;)

Walt is not a Rebulding GM, he is a WIN now GM... Which bodes well for us!

Let's just say, he will be buying the beers after each MINOR LEAGUE game. :confused:

Man, after that fat slobby piece of dung coach reportedly yelled "its rollin baby, its rollin" at those nasty hookers, I just cant take the roll tide seriously anymore, thats the first thing that comes to mind.
