Hopefully some of those guys still get the call.
    Had to be part of his contract. Agree to a minor league deal with some big league pay and service time in September. Nothing else makes sense.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Well that does make sense....and it shows again the weird (Best word I can use besides Stupid and Dumb) ways this FO thinks.

    Hoover should NOT be up here at all. Waste of time.

    If Price is like most managers - and right now I see very little evidence that he isn't - I wouldn't count on seeing a lot of these callups unless the Reds are playing the Mets or Cubs. Most managers who have teams that are out of the running won't play callups - unless they are pinch hitting or pinch running - because they don't want to anger the other teams who are in the race by "laying down" for one opponent and playing the main guys for another.

    I'd be angry if the Reds kept running out Jay Bruce, Skip, Brandon, Zach, Ryan etc. Against my division foe. 2 or three runs a game on average with that bunch. Can the sept. Call Up's be worse?

    Probably not but what comes around goes around. The Reds may be back in the hunt one of these days and I don't think we or the Reds organization would like it if the Cubs played their A team against us and their B team against StL.

    In reality, though, most of these callups are just AAAA players save for Barnhart, Corcino and Rodriguez. Now if I had some good prospects, I'd play them all the time no matter who I was playing against.

    And... Yorman's call-up just gave me a reason to watch games again. I wonder how much Price plays him.
