    The good "old" Reds!

    Below is my projected 25 man roster on opening day based on current 40 man roster. The age is on 4/1/07 and can be read as year and # of months into next year. Example Cormier 39 years old and in his 12th month since he will turn 40 on April 23. The future is so bright I got to wear

    They are carrying 12 pitchers for sure....Replace Crosby with another pitcher and I would say that would be good

    But no matter how you arrange it....we got some old players

    I expect Cormier and one of the catchers to be gone by Opening Day. I've thought that Cormier may well be available. Likewise, it won't shock me to see Freel gone too, although that depends on Griffey's status. Just a couple of thoughts.

    still think there is a outside shot of josh hamilton making the roster. not so much that he will be ready as i don't think they want to lose him. of course they could offer a trade to keep josh around.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.


    Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

    I fully expect Josh Hamilton to make the 25 man roster out of ST.

    He's just as good of an option we have in our organization not named Dunn, Griffey, Denorfia or Freel.

    I, too, expect Hamilton to make the 25-man roster. Crosby will problaby be gone. Also, Livingston will make roster. Cormier will be traded. Merker & Guardado will be offered contracts hoping one of the two can contribute later.

    Considering Hamilton is almost 26 and he's never had success above A Ball, longshot is the term that comes to mind. Many people were happy he's still playing at all after what he's been through.

    He'll be on it after ST. He'll probably make a trip to the DL with an "injury', and go on a Cody Ross type rehab stint.

    He'd have a hard time looking more lost than Wily Mo Pena did his first full year in the bigs.

    Don't hold your breath on that he has had a few hundred at bats in 6 years and non above single A.
