    No, with the 40-man roster in effect for September, there is no need to disable him unless they want to use his roster spot for someone who isn't currently on the 40-man roster (like Falu or Chang), in which case they would put him on the 60-day DL.

    But it underscores the lack of defensive depth on the current roster when you consider that Hamilton, LaMarre, and Negrón are the three best defensive CF's on the team. (Bourgeois is capable, as well.)

    As I mentioned, I would call up Waldrop and Skipworth for no other reason than they are both on the 40-man roster and have a pulse. I would also put Negrón on the 60-day DL and purchase the contract of Falu. With the decision to shut down Hamilton for the year, I would probably put him on the 60-day DL too and purchase the contract of Ray Chang, just to reward him for being a solid organizational player.

    But hey, we've got 18 pitchers though!

    But guys are saying he's garbage and that he's been bad this year. And that's simply not true. I don't want to see him on the club moving forward but I also have to acknowledge that up until September he's had a VERY nice season. This month has been a dumpster fire for sure.
    Yeah, and I agree. He had a fantastic four months, but if I were in charge (and thank God I'm not), he would be a mop-up pitcher. With only a few games to go, it shouldn't be a problem.

    may be old news, but Billy is having surgery and is out for the duration. I know they don't want to start the clock on anyone, but there is 12 or 13 games left and I doubt they can be three players short to play the outfield.

    No reason not to put a couple of these injured guys on the 60 day DL and open up spots to bring people to the bench. Just have some warm bodies anyway. Reds are so cheap its pathetic.
    I didn't watch any of this game. Sounded like a good game from Lamb. Too bad it was wasted with no run support. But at this point you just want to see some improvement from these young starters. Lamb has been getting better so there is some hope with him.
