Re: Official Trade Deadline Thread
We've seen enough guys come back and not last this season that the Reds shouldn't sit still and count on injured guys returning. I think they need another arm for the pen and another OF. Even if all those guys come back, there is still enough fringe on the roster that there is room to acquire guys. Acquire a guy and push Robinson off the roster. If Ludwick comes back, well Xavier Paul or Jack Hannahan can go on the DL until September 1.
Ondrusek and Partch can be sent down. Even Hoover could be pushed aside for a couple weeks if Broxton and Marshall return. They'd probably need to include at least one of these guys in a deal anyway.
Who is to say that Simon, Lecure or Parra wouldn't be the next guy to go down? Can't have enough good players IMO.

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