    Elizardo to Louisville

    Makes sense

    PHILADELPHIA -- The Reds optioned Elizardo Ramirez to Louisville after the game.

    No corresponding move until tomorrow. I'd guess Belisle or maybe Shackelford.

    Should of never started tonight.. some one needs to take Michalak's spot in AAA. My guess Franklin moves into the rotation or purhaps even Michalak.. but I think he just proved he'd be good in long relief.

    I bet it's Belisle.. he's been solid in his rehab starts and didn't pitch at all during the double header today

    Scary that the 4 and 5 starters could be Lohse and Franklin. Scary stuff.

    Re: Elizardo to Louisville

    I figured it would be a trip the DL to keep Lizard in the playoff eligible pool; and they would rest him for 10 days or so then start a "rehab" assignment.

    Lohse, Franklin, and Michalek have been the strongest looking pitchers in the last couple of weeks. In the case of Lohse and Franklin it could be fresh (underused) arms facing tired bats in the dog days. For all of them maybe a newsness factor in so far as NL hitters have not seen that much of them.

    Find a way to use all three and ride them as far as they can carry the load.

    Sure, he should never have been used in relief last night (I would have made Cormier and his arthritic hip or whatever go out there-either you're available or you're on the DL), but I think Elizardo has been struggling these past couple of weeks on his own merits, not anything Jerry Narron has done or not done.

    Exactly. And I don't even question the relief stint. If Ramierez would have had to go longer Friday night, then they could have cobbled together a starter by committee situation. For the earlier post to have said suggested we've sacrificed Ramierez is a bit much. He's been struggling and hopefully getting down to Louisville he can regain his form and confidence.

    Re: Elizardo to Louisville

    Against Philly, Shack should come up (if it's allowed, he needs to be down 10 days before coming back).

    Reds need another lefty in the pen against Philly today. They can bring back Belisle later.

    Belisle cannot start. He has a bad back. He hasn't started for years and wasn't very good at it then. He has pitched a couple of single innings in rehab. He is not a starting option.

    IMO if that ruined him he didn't have it anyway.
