    Walt, scour the waiver wire please, Villarreal will not do.
    "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."

    Considering Reynolds has on opt out today, this is very confusing.

    Read through the thread. Villareal is likely in Cincy for a day.

    Greg Reynolds needs to be given a shot, especially if we have an open spot on the 40 man and he deserves a chance to prove he's put it together. If he fails, DFA him.

    I first read that as "Greg Reynolds needs to be shot" and thought "We already have problems with bullpen depth!"

    But I agree. Get Reynolds or Pino up here. Villareal has a 5.12 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. There are better options. The 40 man roster is a trainwreck. Ravin, Lotzkar and Villareal are all on it, but our better AAA arms are left off.

    Reynolds: 2.51 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 51 SO, 15 BB

    Pino: 2.25 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 35 SO, 12 BB.

    I'd prefer either...as long as they aren't brought in to face Matt Holliday with the bases juiced in extras.

    How is Villareal still on a 40 man roster, he's terrible and should be dropped! The man is not getting any better over time! Hopefully he can be dropped after today

    Yes...as much as I am hoping they are looking for a trade...what do they have to offer really. I think Phipps should be up here for Lutz....and then after that....who do you have to offer in AAA? Double AA has nothing, less than nothing.

    Re: Broxton to the DL, Villarreal back up

    So we blew up Broxton's elbow with a perfectly healthy Chapman sitting in the pen? Is dusty being as shredded in the media as i feel like he should be right now? People flip when he hits Cozart second, let alone sacrifices our 21 million dollar set up man in the fourteenth inning of a cubs game.

    The managing of the 40 man has been poor since the last few years. They also seem to procrastinate during the year in making moves. Just hoping things will be fine until the DL players come back.....just not my cup of tea. Not expecting Walt to go all Bowden and move people up and down....but they seem content just riding this out and I guess the WC is always there, but I would not be looking to just play for a WC this early in the season.

    Re: Broxton to the DL, Villarreal back up

    How are the Reds going to win this thing with some of these bonehead roster moves.

    Villareal? If he gets in a game, it might as well mean the Reds are giving up on that game.

    So because we are not being positive or confused about the moves and 40 man roster management......this is a problem? I am assuming stating this reads like a Game Thread is not exactly an endorsement of what we are discussing?
