    How would your SP/Bullpen look if all were healthy?

    If Marshall, Broxton, Cueto were all healthy and stay healthy, basically all things being equal, what would your rotation look like and what would your bullpen look like?


    I'll take the first stab but I'm sure I will get grilled for it.

    1.Cueto
    2.Latos
    3.Arroyo
    4.Bailey
    5.Leake

    CL: Chapman
    SU: Marshall
    MR:Broxton
    MR: Hoover
    LR: Cingrani
    LR: LeCure
    LR/MR: Simon

    Of course this is assuming the Reds want to go with a 7 man bullpen instead of 6, but I think Cingrani has earned a spot in the bullpen, even if he is going to be a SP for the Reds down the road. Also, Cingrani could/should be the 6th starter if someone goes down. Lecure should remain the exclusive LR.

    Rotation: Cueto, Latos, Bailey, Arroyo, Leake
    Pen: Chapman, Marshall, Broxton, Simon, LeCure, Partch, Hoover
    Cingrani in Louisville starting every five days

    Mine exactly. I'd hope for a deal to bring in another arm and move Hoover to AAA.

    Though he was frustrating at times,I would love to be able to add a healthy Nick Masset to that group.

    Chapman will be the closer of course, so we have to be realistic and assume his role does not change.

    Here's my order of preference for the remaining guys to be used in a high leverage situation:

    1. Marshall
    2. (tie) Brox/Lecure
    3. Simon
    4. Hoover (subject to change if he performs well)
    5. Parra

    Yes, if everyone is healthy, I probably keep Parra on the roster and Cingrani down in AAA until the deadline for playoff eligiblity. Add Cingrani to the roster then so they can use him out of the bullpen in the playoffs.

    I do this so Cingrani can be ready for the 6th starter if needed. Right now, I'm 100% behind Cingrani in the pen, but when everyone is healthy, I think he should go to AAA..

    Parra has actually not been that bad since coming off the DL. Dusty has been using him well. I guess I have not completely given up on him.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
