    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    I guess Jiminez must be a total loser in the clubhouse. Everything points to this being more than just a baseball move. After all the rumblings from San Diego and Chicago I guess it makes sense.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Well, at least he can't get into a fight with Ryan Freel again this season!

    Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    Could this go deeper I wonder. Maybe, DLo was a cancer in the clubhouse. He sure didn't appear to be a great shape to start off the year.

    Heck, nothing surprises me anymore with this front office. They'll probably start Lopez over Freel and FeLo. Morons.

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    I can't say that I like getting rid of Jimenez over Aurilla but a message had to be sent and since Bergolla, Freel and Lopez brothers can all play 2b than what did we really lose. In these last few weeks Jimenez had only 2 errors but remember the fact that the meltdown vs. St louis started with him not getting the throw over to turn two. He was also on his 3rd team and although he is young he got the tag as lazy which will never help. If this is what it takes to shake things up great but I think the problems start off the field.

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    I am absolutely beside myself. I can't flippin believe this move. It is obivious to me that Dan O'Brien has absolutely no baseball knowledge. Is this his idea of a shakeup? Is this supposed to fire up the team? The only thing we can hope, is that this is just the beginning of another move in play. Stay tuned.

    Move over Mike Brown, Carl Lindner will now take your thrown.

    Come on, releasing Jiminez is nothing short term. Can Freel pitch? Do something to improve things for the long term!

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    Jiminez's on-field struggles (not just at the plate ... defensively, on the basepaths ... everywhere) and his well known off-field, let's say, moodiness, made him the guy to go to send a message. I get the feeling Aurilia is well respected among the guys in that clubhouse. Jiminez's attitude issues could be overlooked when he was performing. When he's lousy across the board, those issues aren't so easy to ignore.

    And this opens the door for Freel to play more at second. Freel isn't going to play short, so cutting Aurilia means you're down to FeLo and LuLo at short -- not good.

    I'm all for this move. But some around here will complain about anything.

    What this accomplishes: Ryan Freel will play everyday and bat leadoff. One less person to have to fit into the rotation with Kearns, Dunn, and Pena.

    I believe that if someone picks him up that they pay him the ML minimum and the Reds pay the rest. I could be mistaken, but I think that's how it works.

    I think I would have tried to get something for him.
    Like a minor leaguer or something, just not waive him.

    ***edit*** Does this mean hes released, or just sent on assignment?
