Re: Reds Postseason Roster: Spot #24
Has to be Valdez. Need a SS. Also, Valdez has playoff experience. Not sure what that means, but I have heard others say it.
If Cingrani were under consideration, I think we would have seen more of him. I am also starting to rethink my earlier vote for Leake. There is no need for a fifth starter unless one goes down. In that case, the pen is deep enough to get through that game and Leake could be added to take the place of the injured starter. Thus, it comes down to who would be most useful as the 25th player, Leake, another reliever, or Cairo.
