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.
The Lizard has the best chance out of the forsome you just mentioned, IMHO. I just can't see Dumatrait or Livingston bein big league pitchers, and I don't know enough about Richie and haven't seen him pitch enough. People forget Elizardo is still only 24.
