    Waldrop had also been nominated
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I just don't understand why it's a surprise Kyle Waldrop's playing first. Had he not played the position before?

    If Winker keeps it up in AFL and does well in spring training through first half of season I think Bruce will be expendable come July and should be traded.

    Oh really? So it is somewhat of a "surprise". I was just trying to be punny.

    It may come sooner than that. Winker is already older than Bruce was when he was promoted to the bigs, and Winker has a more polished approach than Bruce did. I am not saying Bruce should be traded because of this, just saying it's possible to start thinking of Winker as being on the OD roster.

    Ummm...no. Winker, Hamilton, Bruce. That's our OF for the next decade. Jay will bounce back. He's too damned good not to.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I may be crazy, but I think the idea that Winker, Hamilton, Bruce will be the OF of the Reds over the next 10 years is quite a bit more far-fetched than the Reds trading Bruce.

    Should've said the better part of a decade originally like I meant to. But your comment made me go and look. For some reason I thought Jay was signed for longer than he is. His contract goes until 2016 with a team option in 2017. So until then I guess.
