    Why is Edwin still in AAA??

    For all of the good things Krivsky has done to help the team so far I feel that leaving Edwin down this long is hurting the team. He is currently hitting .381 after playing 7 games in AAA, I'm not sure what else he needs to do to prove his ankle isn't a problem any longer. The bench has become weaker because of Edwin being down and we get more Rich at 3rd and that translates to more Rich in the cleanup spot. I don't know if the blame should be more on Narron for wanting to play verterans over kids that EE isn't back up or if it is Krivsky not wanting to DFA or send someone down to get him back up here, but either way it is a problem. This team is going to have to score a lot of runs to continue to win with the current BP and having Edwin's bat up here would only help.

    The Reds are comfortable with Aurilia at 3rd and are disinclined to make a move at the moment. Atterall is RA is really the best cleanup hitter on the team I doubt that EE can replace him.

    I didn't even realize he was hitting .381 in AAA. Wow...he would be a HUGE lift and a good bat to add to the lineup. The way the bullpen is going, we are going to need 8-10 runs per game to do anything. It's so sad.

    You just make up a word?

    Anyway, I think he should be up here. There is no doubt he could help this team win. This is exactly why I'm not a fan of Narron. He stunts growth and success.

    Jerry on the pregame:

    "There's a good chance he'll meet up with us in Atlanta. We'll talk about it and see what happens. The only bad thing about it would be he'd get 3 days off with the all-star break."

    They also want to make sure he's 100%...................um..he is...

    The response:

    "The only bad things is this club has, with no semblance of anything approaching a conscience or a working synapse, left a devastating right-handed bat with power in Louisville for a series of games that included lefties Cliff Lee, CC Sabathia and Doug Davis for reasons that no one can comprehend other than a deep and abiding man-love for Rich Aurilia at clean-up and at-bats for Juan Castro."

    i love the fact we traded for castro and made him almost a everyday player!
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Only if it is hit right at him. Castro MIGHT be just slighty better than EE in the field, but Edwin is so much more superior at the plate it doesn't matter.

    Oh, and it's completely ludicrous Edwin isn't playing 3B right now considering the putrid garbage that's over there right now.

    OK, Edwin is my favorite player on the team, but this statement is ridiculously false. You don't earn a the knickname "Golden Hands" for nothing. The guy has one of the slickest gloves in the game. Edwin I think will be a great fielder, but is not there yet.

    Jerry sure does like "waiting to see what happens" a lot.

    Dude, George Grande gave him that nickname. He's made a career of making easy plays look good. He has no range whatsoever. He's a slightly above average fielder at best.

    Blaming George for Castro's reputation is weird. Like it or not he's renowned for his defense by managers and gm's alike. It's not George that built up his reputation.

    Maybe it's false, maybe it's not. But it's not George.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    EdE has more range....I'll agree. But, getting the ball is the first part. Throwing it to the first baseman and not the dugout or 5th row is the second part. I feel much more relaxed when a ball is hit towards Castro than EdE (or Felipe) for that matter. Kind of like when Boone was down at 3rd. You sigh and say "automatic out" to yourself. EdE is learning and can only improve in his errors, but right now you can't say Castro doesn't play better defense than him.
