Re: Ondrusek optioned, Partch up.
This player move, of course, is different than some of the others. This is a demotion of a pitcher who wasn't getting it done. It's not an injury replacement.
I hope the Reds are not finished tweaking the roster. Parra's spot could be up for grabs. Certainly Lutz's spot. And also Izturis' spot, I see that Jason Donald is off the DL and playing at AAA.
To raise a dreaded subject, I also see that Dusty moved his left fielder into the second hole in the batting order. Again, I think this is a positive tweak.
The Reds have a good record but it's mostly against weak teams. While patience is great, passivity is not. There are injury holes and weakness in the bullpen and bench. Very glad the Reds are starting to address them.
