    he had some decent years

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Yep, he still sucks.

    Seriously though, he'll be starting a rehab stint this week. How long is unknown.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I anticipate him doing the entire 30 day rehab in the minors to buy some time, and for him to work on his pitching.
    Just a guess on my part.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I hear they're focusing on him being able to throw strikes.

    I don't think he'll be back soon, he's still got some pretty bad inflammation in his ERA.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    That is true.
    This move buys them a 30 day window in case the pitching staff goes through another rash of injuries.

    Honestly, since Parra's contract is guaranteed anyhow, it would not be a bad idea to keep juggling him on and off the DL all year. If they could have Parra on the DL when the playoff rosters are set, doesn't that open up a pitching slot on the playoff roster that maybe Cingrani could slide into? That's pretty much what they did with Bray and Negron last year -- there were other DL slots, but those guys were pretty much used as placeholders for substitutions.

    Anyhow, the point is.. would be nice to let Cingrani finish the year at AAA, bring him up when rosters expand, and then have him as a lefty out of the pen during the playoffs. Cingrani is probably more useful out of the pen in the playoffs than Logan or Simon.

    Parra is definitely one of Jocketty's most questionable and puzzling signings in his tenure as Reds GM. The guy is a major project and not really ready to help the Reds now and make their bullpen better. I repeat...he does not make the bullpen better. Jocketty needs either figure out a way to keep him in AAA a while to work out things and keep as depth or admit he made a mistake and cut bait with him.

    I think Walt did ok in signing Parra. He showed some promise as a reliever last year. Pitching depth is important and with guys like Parra and Arredondo around, the Reds have some flexibility in the bullpen.

    Despite all the "how many options" talk around here, there hasn't been much difficulty getting guys at Parra's level through waivers down to AAA.

    The key IMO is whether teams get so wedded to a guy they won't send him down or disable him. In the Reds' case, they were willing to disable Parra when they needed roster room. It would be much worse if they insisted on keeping him on the roster when not doing well.

    Like I said, I am OK in keeping Parra as a "minor league depth guy" but nothing more than that. Until he shows some consistent success as a reliever, he is not deserving of a bullpen spot with the Reds. He did not show that in spring training or in the 2013 season thus far.

    Sean Marshall hasn't pitched since may 8th. Hopefully the rest is allowing him to be fully healthy when he does pitch again.

    Has Marshall been injured again?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
