Take a bucket of Batting Practice balls and and a used jock strap to be named later from anybody who'll take Lohse and give Dumatrait a shot. It'd be nice to add a southpaw to Harang, Arroyo, Home and Belisle. It's not like he'll jeopardize our playoff chances.
Give him a handful of starts and if he's not cutting it give Livingston another shot, the Lizard or maybe even Richie Gardner - or maybe even better still - a young acquired arm.
I'm tired of wasting starts on arms with no Reds' future. I'm also worried we may need two rotation fill-ins. I've got a suspicion that Bronson may be headed for at least a short second half stint on the DL.
