    at least Ondrusek is rested. So he should be able to go 3+ innings.

    Wait, people are upset that Villareal got called up? It's not like there was an advanced warning here. Why in the world would we pitch a guy on short rest?

    As long as the Rockies keep sending Garland back out there, there is a chance.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Isn't it great! Maybe this was a last-minute thing with Cueto (or he didn't say anything right after his last start even if he was feeling discomfort). Still, any way you cut it, it stinks we had to use a guy who was sporting such a terrible ERA and WHIP at the Triple-A level as a starter on the MLB level. "You get what you pay for" comes to mind.

    Well, it's not all bad for Pedro. He might have a new gig as the pitcher in the All Star game home run contest.

    the ERA wasnt as much of a sign as the 13 HR allowed in 2 months vs AAA batters. call him up, put him in GABP vs the Rockies. i just hope the Reds dont get investigated for trying to throw a game.

    Is Villarreal already on a bus back to Louisville, or are they going to let him pretend to be a MLB player for a couple hours longer?

    They knew Cueto was in discomfort after his start in Pittsburgh. It would have been very easy to have Louisville reshuffle their rotation so the Reds could add a guy that has a chance.

    Maybe Yorman Rodriguez can pitch a couple of innings. He's on the forty.

    Shoot, given no other option but the 1 they chose, I give Simon the 1st 3 and call up a bullpenner.
