    Could this be the end for Womack?

    If Jason LaRue is ready to come off the DL, I am betting that they release Tony Womack. Not starting him tonight at 2B against a right hander is the handwriting on the wall. Phillips also appears to be the future every day 2B in the Reds' eyes. I can't see them releasing Ross or sending out a pitcher.

    I hope so.

    i think Jr.'s injury probably buys Woe-mack 10 days-2 weeks as I think Jr is placed on the DL and Jason activated.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    If they release him now I'm not sure what the point of getting him to begin with was. Well, I'm still not sure of that

    Hal said in the 2nd inning on the radio that Narron wants to keep 3 catchers. They both agreed that Womack is the odd man out, and I do too, for the reasons that you stated. Brandon Phillips appears to have (mercifully) passed T-Woe on the depth chart.

    Reds Rule: as we know that was a Dan O move, so there obviously was no point to it.

    Ok since Junior is now on the DL, Mr. Womack just bought himself some time.

    Yeah, it's still too early to proclaim BP the future, but he should be given every opportunity to make it so. I've wanted an athletic 2B who plays steller D for a couple of years now. Hopefully, BP's the man.

    Heck, with this lineup he doesn't even have to hit a ton as long as he plays solid D and pitches in with a game like tonight every once in a while.

    Who knows? If he's willing to re-address his hitting approach and work with Chambliss to get back to the kind of game that made him a top prospect, we may even have a bonifide steal on our hands.

    Now, if we could find a young slugging 1B to go with Phillips, FeLo and EdE.

    I really don't understand this at all. However, if it gets Womack off the roster, I'm all for it.

    If it's so Val can be a PH so they have an emergency catcher then make Val the backup 1b and dump Hatteberg.

    Otherwise with a 12 man staff it makes the rest of the bench extremely short, 1 backup OF

    The Griffey to the DL buys the Reds almost another 2 weeks to decide what to do now. IMO it hasn't been decided, but Womack seems to be the likely player out, but if 3 catchers are going to remain on the roster there is always a chance it could be Hattieberg because Valentin could play first also.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    The Reds will actually have 4 catchers on the roster when Larue comes back..
