    Skip him.
    "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."

    You skip with the off day Thursday, and you'll need him against the Cards on Tuesday. So, he won't be skipped unless they know Cingrani can pitch for sure on Tuesday.

    From a selfish standpoint, please? We only get to see the Reds 3-4 games a year when they come to Denver. Reynolds doesn't get us excited to spend $100 on tix

    Arroyo, Reynolds and Leake in Denver is a frightening thought. But mainly because of Arroyo and Leake in the thin air. REDS are going to need to bring the bats.

    Then it would be Latos Bailey and Arroyo vs. the Cards at GABP. Much better.

    I wouldn't skip anybody.

    I agree. Arroyo does need 6 days rest. This is the ultimate #5 starter that you can skip and should skip when you can.

    Actually Arroyo's career numbers on three days rest says he pitches BETTER with short rest. Don't skip him. Move him up. You have Arroyo backward - he works worse on long rest. Saw that metric somewhere last year. Bronson is just a strange athlete all around.

    Pitch him. The extra day for starters this time of year is a good thing.

    Baker and Price don't have a history of manipulating a rotation based on the opponent.

    Re: Cingrani leaves in 4th with back injury

    I would slot Reynolds for Sunday if Cingrani can't go. Or we can keep playing with 24 guys while chasing two teams and watch Reynolds fill in against the birds and get lit up like Cousin Eddie in CMas Vacation which wouldn't be a good thing.

    This would require deep planning and someone making a call on Cingrani to the 15-day by Sat morning so I am sure it can't possibly be done.

    Skip Reynolds and pray Cingrani is better in time for the Cards.

    If Cingrani is not healthy by the time his planned start vs the Cards comes up, we're in trouble anyhow.
    It's in our best interest to minimize the number of starts Reynolds gets.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Any recent news on Cingrani? I know he threw some last week but haven't heard if he will make a start against the Cards.

    John "never wrong" Fay gave a solid yes, when someone asked if he'd be back vs STL.

    Re: Cingrani leaves in 4th with back injury

    Chris Welsh said that Cingranni had told over the weekend him that Tony's back felt great in Denver. I guess they have to see how he feels after a bullpen session if one is scheduled before proposed next start (Thursday??)

    Fay says that Cingrani will start on Thursday, with Reynolds there if needed.
