I guess it depends on whether they can send Parra to AAA or not.
If they can option him, he can still stay in Cincy and work with Price.
Arrendondo.. they gave him a 2 year trial, and he wasn't that good.
Parra has the potential to be better than Arrendondo. Hard to say if he will ever realize that potential though. In fairness to Parra though, his audition has only been 5 innings so far.
If the Reds did decide to demote or cut Parra, I think I'd rather have Logan on the roster than Arrendondo.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
