I think Mike Maloney can pitch on the major League level. I'm not sure about Jordan Smith . I know Maloney's considered a starter, but I think I'd have liked to have seen him sent to the bullpen and someone else sent down.

A big league team in the heat of a pennant race is not the place to see if a guy can pitch out of the pen. If you're going to try that experimient, do it in AAA and bring him back up if it works.

Maybe. But I can see a situation where Wood and Maloney are down in Louisville, and Smith, Brey, Owens and Ondrusek are in Cincinnati. That would not make me happy.

Are these new players?

Yes, I would keep him starting games and he will only be doing that in AAA at the moment.

He gives us security if a SP goes down and who knows what the situation will be with Harang and Arroyo next season.

The Reds should consider trading Maloney if they could get something in return. There are 6 guys ahead of him plus Bailey if he gets healthy. And you have LeCure for insurance. But he has pitched good enough to maybe interest someone. You might have to package him with a veteran who has the salary to make it work.

Since when is Mike bad typing or misspelling of Matt?

Sorry, but if you are going to make an opinion about a guy it really helps to get his name right.

On one hand, I like having starters with major league experience in triple A. On the other hand, I don't think it's fair to keep a guy who is ready for the big leagues in triple A for his career. Maloney could be a serviceable #4 or #5 starter in the Bigs for someone. He has nothing left to prove in triple A.

I look for him to be dealt in the off season or at the deadline. Our 40-man roster is gonna be logjammed this off season with guys moving up. Running out of room for some of these guys.
