Re: Best guess at AAA Louisville Roster @ start of 2013
Now that we know who is at AA, there is going to be quite a few players leftover without a spot at AAA when the final decisions are announced. Unless I've missed a release or two, right now there are 20 or so picthers in contention for a spot at Louisville. Dan Corcino, Tony Cingrani, Pedro Villareal, Chad Reinecke, Armando Gallarraga, Greg Reynolds, Mark Prior, Jeff Marquez, Wilkin De La Rosa, Clay Hensley, Justin Freeman, Nick Christiani, Mark Serrano, Jeff Stevens, Kanekoa Texiera, Kevin Whelan, Jose Diaz and the losers of the major league battle, possibly Logan Ondrusek or maybe JJ Hoover if they decide to option him to hang onto guys on the big league roster.
I'd guess sorting through AAA and looking for deals to thin the herd may be contributing to the delay in announcing the final Reds' roster. Lots of guys are going to go in the next day or two I'd guess.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
