OK, he's easily the oldest players in the minor leagues for the Reds, he turned 35 in January, obviously he doesn't have a heck of a lot of time left ... but look at his numbers ... he's got a 2.61 ERA! He's been the best pitcher for the Bats all year. If the guy was 25 instead of 35, he'dd be up here a month or two ago. Can he BE any worse than Milton or Mays or Claussen? I highly doubt it. Sheesh, if Mays sucks today, which is highly likely ... bring him up and see what he can do ... I think its sending a bad message when you pitch pretty great in Triple A and can't get a call up when guys in your rotation have over 5's and over 8 ERA's. Call up Michalak, and bring Homer Bailey on up to Louisville.
