    What is wrong with Brad Salmon?

    Where is all the chatter about him making the big club's bullpen? Something has to be wrong with him. Maybe I am missing something.

    Is it just me, or am I the only one that wants to call this guy Brad "The Animal" Salmon? I know that was Brad Leslie's nickname, but with a name like Salmon...

    I think he should make the team. But with all the mediocre glut on contracts in front of him, I just don't see how he'll fit unless a couple guys are moved or injured.

    There should be at least one spot set aside for guys like Salmon to get a chance. The Reds have multiple young cheap guys that can fill a role, but you never find out when guys like Cormier and Weathers are given relatively big money to stink-up the joint. The Reds could have pocketed that cash or combined it to get one difference maker, while rotating Salmon, Coutlangus, Medlock, Burton, etc through the open spots to try and find some life for the future.

    I'm rooting for a Cormier trade, a stashing of EZ and Maj on an early rehab, and a spot for Salmon on the 25 man.

    I'm rooting for a Cormier retirement party. Giving this guy a bullpen spot over Salmon or somebody just doesn't make any sense at all. So far I've learned that WayneK likes to make a lot of little moves that don't make any sense at all eg. Germano - Cormier Let's try and make a jump into the DIPS era here Wayne. To your disappointment, Rheal Cormier will never again post a sub 2 ERA, or possibly even a sub 5 ERA for that matter.

    I heard he was getting smoked.

    Brad "The Mackerel" Salmon.

    The guy will turn 27 this year. Maybe he needs another 13 years experience before being considered.

    Brad "only upstream" salmon

    or

    Brad "avoiding bears since 1980) Salmon

    I prefer the latter

    Not really sure why I understand all of the Cormier bashing on this board. Yeah, I too will root for a guy like Salmon, but Cormier was effective in a launching pad like Citizens Bank Park in Philly, and he can be here too.

    I think it would be a VERY good sign if one or two of the 26-27 year old relievers pushed some of the retreads into a timely retirement. Just not sure Jerry's got the stones to do it, even if they clearly outperform in camp. Maybe take two or three months of old farts getting shelled before the youngsters get a call up. Hope not.
