Re: Reds should promote two starting pitchers and more
Here is what I do. Livingston and Dumatrait are brought up to the big club. Dumatrait is inserted in Belisle's slot and Livingston pitches long relief. Keppinger and Votto are brought up with the hopes of Hatty being traded and maybe Castro released. I look at trading both Valentine and Conine to teams that may want their tools. I bring up Dickerson and see if he could be usefull as a defensive replacement and also a pinch runner. I stick Lohse in the pen as a set up man or maybe even the closer. I see what I can get in return for Weathers. I also look for the best deal I can get for Dunn or Freel (probably nothing for Freel becasue of the injury). I am sick of seing this team playing the way it is and if they are going to lose 100 games then I want to see the young guys doing it.
