I see the battle for two spots among Hoover, Arredondo, Parra, and Ondrusek. I don't see Masset as realistic to open in Cincy.
Arredondo had a bad second half of 2012, I don't see him as a lock. Jose could be a trade possibility, unless he has a great spring. Of the other three, I hope Hoover makes it, but he does have options, can't be sure. Guessing Hoover and Parra, with Ondrusek going to AAA as insurance.
I see the poster before me also sees Arredondo as a potential candidate to move on. We'll see soon enough.
Agreed on Arredondo that when he does keep it together, he's holding on by a thread. Some posts have that Parra may not impress anyone in spring training.
Definitely agree that a trade may be coming & may be needed to make room for Hoover on the big league squad.
Pete Campbell: A man like you I'd follow into combat blindfolded, and I wouldn't be the first. Am I right, buddy?
Don Draper: Let's take it a little slower. I don't want to wake up pregnant.
