    The bereavement list doesn't mean he's been released or DFA'ed.

    I believe it was LaRue's grandfather that died last year. Dane Sardinha came up for three days and played one of the games at Boston while LaRue was gone for the funeral.

    Another one... John Riedling went on bereavement leave Aug. 3, 2004 when his father passed away.

    It's not a boot, it's like a 7 day DL. Not sure how long it is, but I'm pretty sure it is shorter than 15 days.

    Min. of 3 days, max. of 7 days. This was instituted a few years back. Before is this policy, the team would have to play short-handed because mlb does not have a 7 day DL like the minor leagues.

    Reidling was considered to be a "key" part of the Reds core after the April/May period in 2004, before his arm collapsed on him(like they can do in Relievers) and he imploded that June into July.

    A reliever, the fickle friend.

    Jared Fernandez, the old knuckleballer, was recently DFA'd however.

    I'm curious however, I'm not familiar with this Anthor fellow, he must be a real old timer.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
