    Those are "his guys." He brought them in and when they didn't work out he DFA'd them and moved on.
    FWIW, I think White was Kullman's error.

    The call on Claussen will come, or can come tomorrow, which is his last day on the 15-day.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Claussen doesn't have to come off the DL. He just ran out of the alloted time for his rehab. He can stay on the DL. There's no hurry to do anything with him.

    Correct. He can stay on the DL the rest of the year if that's what the Reds so decide.

    Im hoping all that Majewski needed was a few weeks off after being used alot by the Nationals.

    If Claussen is going to be joining the team he should probably be used as a LOOGY out of the bullpen
    or a spot starter when they need one. Claussen vs. Left: .164, Claussen vs. Right: .331.

    Me and a friend we just emailing back and forth about this and wondering just what could be done and after about 4 emails we came to the same conclusions above with the exception of Standridge, we thought he would be sent down to AAA not on the DL.

    I can tell you this, that this move for Franklin actually surprised me, but I am really glad we have a guy in the FO that is making moves and not just sitting there albeit small ones.

    I am also very curious as to what will happen in say 2 weeks when some of these guys are ready to come off of the DL, I wonder if Narron will actually have to part with one of his veterans in Mercker or if we will have to actually go back to a 2 catcher team?

    These are all good moves for the time being.

    Whether you agree with Wayne or not, at least he is trying hard.

    Maj just wasn't working.. Whether he was hurt or not, something needed to be done. Part of the reason we lost yesterday (last game of Atlanta series) was because the bullpen was short.. Weathers needed rest, Guaradado is hurt, Standbridge is a crapshoot that can only be used with no runners on, and Maj is useless.. That makes it tough for Narron.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Ryan Franklin is a Red

    Good news on Merker! I feel alot better about him than Majewski in the 7th inning. But how does Claussen come back as a LOOGY unless EG goes on the DL? Maybe he, Belisle, Standridge and Majewski will stay DL'd until September 1??? That'll make for a pretty deep bullpen in September.

    .

    Oh swell, he's "trying hard".

    yippie.

    I wish he's try harder then.

    I think the problem with Wayne is that compared to DanO he's Branch Ricky. But then compared to DanO Krusty is Branch Ricky.

    Re: Ryan Franklin is a Red

    Considering that we will probably give up almost nothing for franklin how can you not like the move. If it doesnt work out, oh well nothing lost. He could become one of the key pieces in our bullpen down the stretch, or he could become joe mays, but if we gave up nothing then its worth the risk. At least it sends the message to the team that the GM cares and he really does want to win.
