    today's call ups

    OF Dewayne Wise
    INF Ray Olmedo
    SP Chris Michalak
    RP Matt Belisle

    Looks like the Reds are tired. The west coast trip has cost them the Division and possibly the wild card. I think that Narron has proven that he is not a playoff skipper.


    **Side note Easy Rameriz was put on the 60 day DL. Huge setback for Easy, because he had a real chance of competing for the 5th spot in the rotation.

    Isn't every team making these kind of moves at this point in the season?

    Aren't these just normal September call ups?

    Unless quantity trumps quality.

    Tons of BP arms and double-switching, defensive, pinch-hitting, and pinch-running specialists.

    Yes but we are bringing up just about everyone from our AAA team, I think that soon, when AA is finished up with the playoffs, we will see more. Definitly Votto, and possibly Homer.

    I doubt it. I honestly don't believe Krivskey believes in jumping levels. I don't think we've had any player this season not move up incremently. And that bodes well, IMO..

    What is your point?

    I fail to see how this has anything to do with Jerry Narron not being a play-off caliber manager. You seem to be implying that because of his ineptness, these moves have become neccessary.

    These both from RotoWorld.com:

    Jason Johnson is being penciled in as Wednesday's starter.
    Johnson, who has been hit hard as a starter for Cleveland and Boston this season, was shelled during a start with Triple-A Louisville on Friday. He won't have any fantasy value.
    Reds recalled LHP Chris Michalak from Single-A Sarasota.
    After Bronson Arroyo goes on short rest tomorrow, either Michalak or Jason Johnson will start Wednesday against the Giants. Johnson appears to be the favorite for the assignment.
