    This year...Walt will actually have to make a trade or two in the middle of the year to help the team win, not just hold.
    Great post.

    I agree, we can sing praise from the rooftops that Sam got one out in a high leverage situation, but the overall bullpen needs help at the deadline. It looks like Brox may be in trouble. Marshall should come back soon, but they still need another reliever who can miss bats. Jim and Jeff were talking about bad luck on batted balls. This happens.... But if its not put in play there's no chance of anything falling. I'd like to see another reliever added before the deadline. Dusty needs as little thought as possible before getting to Chapman.

    So, Villarreal is back up, but in the bullpen this time?

    There are better options than him for the bullpen. This guy is a batting tee, his numbers at AAA say he can barely pass there.

    Has this injury been brewing for a while, therefore LeCure being used in the 8th recently?

    Yohan Pino. Do not care of he is 29. They guy should be the one called up. Stupid management of the 40 man roster. One of the things along with building some of the worst benches I have seen....is the only flaw that Walt and his management team seem to have.

    Villareal tells me the following.

    Cueto to come back tomorrow.

    Cingrani to stay.

    Villareal back down. One day stop gap IMO.

    Re: What's wrong w/ Broxton ?

    Greg Reynolds can opt out of his deal with the Reds as of today. I thought maybe he'd get the call since they're at 39 on the 40-man. He's scheduled to start for Louisville tonight. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. Seems like a far more valuable guy than some on the 40 man (Ravin, Lotzkar and others...).

    Hope you are right. I wonder how Tiny will adjust to the bullpen and warming up every other day.

    Man oh man this bullpen is a mess. I was hoping Walt could swing a trade for a guy like Luke Gregorson but the Padres are back in the race, so that's doubtful.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
