    Bergolla outrighted to Louisville

    Looks like Bergolla cleared waivers and was outrighted to Louisville. Seems like Bergolla DFA was a roster move intended to make room on the 40 man roster. So Reds keep Bergolla, just not on the 40 right now.

    So Bergolla DFA turns out to be "much ado about nothing," although Reds probably don't think too highly of Bergolla if they took him off the 40.

    I think it's obvious nobody feels highly about Bergolla now.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I suspected they were basically risking losing Bergolla knowing he probably wasn't going anywhere, although I wasn't sure of that.

    Seems no one else did either then.

    I am surprised. I assumed a KC type team would roll the dice on a kid who can field like that.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It would have been great if either Bergolla or Olmedo would have been able to hit enough to grab the job at SS. Heck, I wish Gookie had been able to hit. Whats he doing these days?

    It'll be interesting to see if he gets put back on the 40-man at the end of the season, after jettisoning the various injured pitchers and veterans Krivsky picked up for the stretch drive

    He will probably come back for Clayton or Castro, assuming Krivs doesn't have another middle infielder in his sights as a FA. When it comes down to it Bergolla was never going to get a call up during September so why waste the spot.

    I think sometimes we value our players higher then they deserve

    I had to talk Mr. Krivsky out of ordering the Racehorse Treatment for Bergolla since his steals have dropped so much. We settled on the outrighting thing.

    We like the kids who want to hit so badly they don't bother waiting a few pitches before swinging.

    I have no reason to suspect anything different.
