    That's about as hypothetical as u can get. And very weak, IMO. I don't think anyone with a level head would question the decision to hold back your best triple A guy in that situation. For goodness sake, they had to turn to a guy with a 1-3 record with an ERA over 5.

    But at the end of the year, it won't mount to a hill of beans when the Reds have won the NL Central by 6 or 7 games.

    Louisville is an hour and a half down the road. I think he could have adjusted.

    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    From Rotoworld:
    Tony Cingrani has been scratched from Friday's start at Triple-A Louisville. It pretty much cinches that he'll be called up to start on Tuesday in place of Johnny Cueto (lat). Cingrani put up a 3.27 ERA and 41/9 K/BB ratio over 33 innings with the Reds earlier this season. Jun 7 - 3:07 PM
