    Reed recalled; VanMeter optioned to AAA

    #Reds announce they've called up LHP Cody Reed. Josh VanMeter was optioned to AAA-Louisville.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Makes sense. VanMeter doesn't need to be here when he isn't getting consistent at bats. Let him continue to grow.

    We will need 4 lefties when facing Bellinger-Muncy- Seager-Pederson and Verdugo

    Not sure why they called VanMeter up to start with.

    Four man bench, one spot was empty, VM was hot at AAA, Reds needed a second lefty bench bat.

    Ervin made more positional sense IMO, Reds don’t have a true fourth outfielder.

    So tonight Reds go with three man bench, not including Lorenzen.

    VM had his shot and didn't capitalize on it. Lesson learned for next time. He had limited ABs but didn't deliver or make it hard for them to send back down.

    They way Bell is using his bullpen (Not saying its good or bad, it is working though) they need this many relievers.

    I don’t see how Duke on the roster, as the 4th lefty in the pen, is more valuable than a backup OF for this team.

    Rob Wooten just tweeted a picture from a plane that says Biloxi Mississippi to Buffalo New York. which suggests that he has been promoted from AA to AAA. my guess is Reed stays and Duke goes bye bye.

    The television crews left and about 10 reporters remained in the room. That's when Price took his turn doing the talking.
    What followed was a five-minute, 34-second expletive-filled tirade. The final tally was 77 uses of the "F" word or a variant and 11 uses of a vulgar term for feces (two bovine, one equine).

    The lookouts account replied with a GIF that would confirm that.

    Some guys never get it mentally. Some guys it takes several opportunities. Hoping Reed is the latter.

    I think Reed will do very well.
