    I would guess he's here only until Tuesday when Cingrani is back to pitch against the Cubs

    I actually think Henry Rodriguez will be the guy to go down for Cingrani.

    Partch has been doing much better with the Ks these past couple years. I know we who voted for Redszone's top 50 prospects, didn't get him until we voted for the #44 - #50 overall prospects. Some of that is due to him being a reliever who most of us view with less significance as other players, and some of that is due to him not having much results prior to 2012. Even then, Partch did walk 4.22 batters per 9 innings at AA last year in 70 1/3 innings. Sure, his K rate was nice at 8.19, but it's not like the guy was setting the world on fire.

    Partch did start hot in 8 1/3 in AA this year before being bumped up to AAA where the Ks have come 11.22 K/9 in 21 2/3 innings, but so have the walks (4.15 BB/9). Let's hope the strikeouts continue coming in the bigs and he doesn't allow too many free passes or home runs (which he has been pretty good with throughout his career).

    It'd make sense for him to stay longer since he's a bullpen arm.

    Or Lutz to better balance the bench with the Switch Hitter. Leaves us short in the OF, but Frazier can move in a pinch.

    Re: Ondrusek optioned, Partch up.

    This player move, of course, is different than some of the others. This is a demotion of a pitcher who wasn't getting it done. It's not an injury replacement.

    I hope the Reds are not finished tweaking the roster. Parra's spot could be up for grabs. Certainly Lutz's spot. And also Izturis' spot, I see that Jason Donald is off the DL and playing at AAA.

    To raise a dreaded subject, I also see that Dusty moved his left fielder into the second hole in the batting order. Again, I think this is a positive tweak.

    The Reds have a good record but it's mostly against weak teams. While patience is great, passivity is not. There are injury holes and weakness in the bullpen and bench. Very glad the Reds are starting to address them.

    So, this feels like the Reds are officially giving up on Ondrusek.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Relievers are here today and gone tomorrow. Logan and Jordan Smith are just two examples of how fans over value relievers. JJ Hoover is likely to be the next in that line.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Agree with the first point, but not with comparing Hoover to Ondrusek and Smith. Hoover strikes guys out, Ondrusek and Smith rely purely on the defense behind them and eventually that luck runs out.
    "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."

    Agree as to most relievers. Late inning relievers like Chapman, Marshall are not overvalued. They are important players and not that easily replaceable.

    Re: Ondrusek optioned, Partch up.

    Dusty, on the pre game show, said Partch would be taking over Simon's role, and Simon would be used in "more important" innings from now on.

    Does look to be more accurate. I should have looked at his k rates. My main point was looking for guys that miss bats and even then not expecting or planning on th long term. After looking at Hoover's k rate I used a bad comparison.

    Re: Ondrusek optioned, Partch up.

    Partch can bring it and misses bats...he also misses the strikezone a lot. If Curt can keep his walks down to something reasonable he has the stuff...better than Logan's imo. But the game is also littered with hard throwers that never learn to pitch/have command. Hopefully he gets a couple outings in blowouts before handling a crucial inning.
