In response to the Cloninger post, be pro-active in what way?
DL guys like Phillips and keep them out for two weeks so you can add some reserve infielder? DL Valdez because of a stiff neck? You'll pay a price for that down the road when they are able to play but are still DL'd.
I guess they could cut Cairo and add another reserve infielder for a few days until Phillips and Valdez are able to play. Seems like a major reaction to a few day problem.
The decision on Cairo will come when Votto returns from the DL.
