    Can't wait to see what Germano can bring (if anything) to the table.

    Belisle goes home, Germano en route

    CHICAGO -- Following this afternoon's game, Matt Belisle headed back to Cincinnati. He's experiencing pain in his lower back and will be examined by Doc Kremchek tomorrow morning.

    There is no DL move yet, but just in case, the Reds are having Justin Germano fly into Chicago so they'll have another body available tomorrow night. Germano is 3-6 with a 4.66 ERA in 10 starts for Louisville.
    Interesting. I thought it would be 1 of the AA guys.

    I read a piece a couple of days when Krivsky was asked about a prospect at AA and he said he does not skip levels, so it's not likely we will see anyone make a jump from AA to the majors on Krivsky's watch.

    It sounds like Germano wont be able to pitch unless Belisle goes on the DL.
    Im guessing they must think Belisle is going to go on the DL if they are flying Germano to Chicago.

    I can't get real excited about Germano. It's scarey knowing he is the best that the Reds minor league system currently has to offer. I hope I am wrong about him though and he comes up here and pitches well, the bullpen needs a boost to say the least.

    That doesn't mean he is the best they have to offer. With the option rules along with starting the free agent clock it could just be an emergency guy that they can send back down. Too bad Wagner isn't ready.

    Belisle is more of a swing guy, a guy you have go out there multiple innings. I think thats why they called up Germano. Wagner seems like a 1 inning relief guy... and thats if he can even put up a good performance. He's been terrible. Looking more and more like a bust, unfortunately.

    Ryan Wagner still has enough upside that he'll get tossed into some deal as filler. He actually might be back something.

    Toss in Shafer & Dumatrait and DFA some of the stiffs in the 'pen. Watch Jerry Narron self-destruct at the thought of not much 'veteran-ess' in the 'pen.

    i think this goes to the same reason we talk about in the bailey thread. krivsky knows you must DEVELOP the players fully or as much as possible before you bring them up. you can get away with bringing guys up early, but i dont think they will ever be as good as they could have been or be as complete and thus make your team as good as if you let them develop in the minors. i dont want a team of guys who cant play d, cant run the bases right, cant bunt, cant be a "pitcher" etc. we already have that i want guys who do it all right and are talented. see the cardinals
