    Wow!! I never would've thought the Reds would eat his contract. Of course, I thought the same thing about Jimmah Haynes.


    Is this a sign that WMP will be activated for tonight's game?

    Rich Aurilia hits below .200 and starts everyday. Not to mention him being a bad player the past 4 years.

    Jimenez, coming off a good year, struggles a month and half and gets waived.

    I hate this FO.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I don't agree with this move. The guy has/had trade value.

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    I don't get it either. I mean, Jiminez wasn't playing well. But, look at the pitching staff, look in the bullpen. There are quite a few half-tossers in there who should be "waived." Of course, there's the argument about not having anyone to put into the bullpen, but ... hey... even a AAA kid can outpitch these million dollar tomato cans at this point.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Aurilia is on the DL -- can't waive him yet

    They sure as heck better waive Aurilla. His performance and D'lo's are virtually the same, only D'lo is still young.

    Bergolla is in the starting lineup tonight per 1360.

    My prediction is that the return of Machado will lead to the release of Aurilia

    I figured Miley would start Luis Lopez at 2b tonight.

    Typical. Go for the "low hanging fruit" and avoid the tough decisions (Wilson's been no better. Neither has Graves. Neither has LaRue). D'Lo will get another chance, somewhere.

    Luis Lopez??? I'd rather see Encarnacion get his first shot to be everyday 3B...

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    When available, if we could have our way, please waive the following "half-letes":

    Ben Weber
    David Weathers
    Rich Aurillia


    Maybe I'm wrong - and please correct me if I am - but... isn't it policy to only pay the waived/released player's salary for the season *if* that player doesn't resign with another team that same season?

    That's a pretty safe prediction.

    I'd even go as far to say that the return of Aurilia from the DL will lead to his release. That is if Bergolla shows that he belongs on the ML roster.
