    Why the obsession with trying to covert everyone to catcher?

    Corky Miller has played in the majors. That's why.

    Wonder why Ervin isn't beginning in Bakersfield. Do they have any doubt he can handle it?

    Journeyman in AAA have the system clogged. Forced Lutz to AA and guys like Waldrop and Silva to repeat A+. Don't understand the need for guys like Mike Wilson, Jason Bourgeois or even continued foolery with a guy like Josh Fellhauer. Gotta figure some cuts and promotions by end of May.

    Mind went blank. Would someone refresh my memory as to who "Adelman" is? He's listed as a pitcher.

    Thanks! I do seem to faintly recall that. (Last October seems a lifetime ago! lol!)

    I would've thought Lively and Lorenzen could switch teams. Also where is Jackson Stephens? Dan Langfield? Jacob Constante?

    Stephens got injured near the end of ST. He should be ok, but he is going to need some time before he is ready. I imagine Langfield isn't 100% yet after surgery last year and Constante is probably waiting until AZL or Billings gets started.

    Having just turned 20 I guess Constante to Billings would make sense. Any ETA and destination thoughts for Stephens and Langfield?

    Has anyone heard anything about Mason Felt and if he's planning on making a comeback?

    Finally, where is Gabe Rosa?
    Go BLUE!!!

    The Reds have 10 OF on the 40 man roster. Don't really need late 20s guys getting PAs in the high minors. Lutz, Y-Rod and Lamarre should be the AAA guys and Duran, Silva and Waldrip should probably be at AA. They should all make way for Winker and Ervin by June. Guys like Wilson, Fellhauer, Perez and the like are fine to fill holes, but with that many guys on the 40 man, get the PAs to the prospects or roster guys.

    I couldn't agree more. I just don't see why Louisville is being clogged, year after year, with guys who have very little chance to have any kind of major league careers. I think it has been possible in previous years--and is perhaps just marginally possible still--to argue that there's been a gap in the Reds system and a lack of guys ready to go to AAA. But that is changing fast and I hope we see some action on this before this season is over. Otherwise, I'd see it as one more reason to get un-enamored with WJ.
