Re: 40-man--Rule V
I think the Reds have enough of their own talent to protect to try and hide someone else's players on the roster.
The roster is at 33 right now. I would protect Guillon, Corcino, Partch, Ravin and as redsof72 said, I can't see YRod not being protected. So that leaves us at 38 on the 40 man before we even test free agency.
