I have to think he is done.

Does anyone have the current 40 man roster? Do the Reds have 1 or 2 spots open?

They now have one spot open, in order to add Danny Herrera.

Mercker is done.


Pitcher Kent Mercker hoped to be activated from the Cincinnati Reds' disabled list this week when rosters expanded, but as he increased his workouts, he said it became clear that his back would not allow it. His career will end on the disabled list.

The Dublin native pitched well when able this season, but he said the back is bad enough that he has to stop pitching now if he wants to avoid surgery.

He doesn't know what he will do next. He seemed comfortable between George Grande and Chris Welsh during a TV broadcast this season; when that was mentioned to him, he laughed and said, "They already have 8,000 broadcasters here."

I think Mercker would be an excellent broadcaster.
