    Majewski update

    From today's Enquirer:

    Majewski, also dealing with a shoulder problem, was held out until a little more than a week ago.

    "This is like the start of spring training for me," he said.

    Majewski is pretty much resigned to that fact that he'll start the year rehabbing at Triple-A Louisville.

    "I told (general manager Wayne Krivsky) when I got here that there's no need to keep me up here if I'm getting my butt kicked like last year."
    Looks like one bullpen spot just opened up for someone like Burton.

    From the "if only" department:

    "I told (general manager Wayne Krivsky) when I got here that there's no need to keep me here if I'm getting my butt kicked like the past two years," said Eric Milton.

    Re: Majewski update

    Wonder if he realizes he might not be SO good to get an immediate recall when he gets healthy

    If he's healthy, he is that good, IMHO. His numbers over the years with the Nats were solid despite being way over used.

    He has Danny Graves' Disease -- he allows too many balls in play to be a truly good reliever.

    His numbers over the years? He basically had one full season with the Nats, 2005.

    At least the guy is humble, and not a pompous whiner. I can respect him as a person, even though I don't think he's a good pitcher.

    Really, I am no longer angry at him. It's not his fault that Wayne made an idiotic trade. Yes, I'll probably still get mad when he comes in and has a bad outing, but he seems like a decent person.

    Wayne is probably relieved that he can carry Cormier a little while longer, thanks to this injury (as opposed to having to trade Frenchie)
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I wonder if the Reds will file their grievance before the anniversary of the trade?

    Maybe the Nats will be forced to send "Ol Leatherpants" back to the Reds.

    Re: Majewski update

    Wayne claimed that every time that they were about to file, that they found new information to add.

    I don't know if that's the truth, or a way to stall and hope that everyone forgets and stops asking him the question.

    I mean, I can understand it taking this long to gather the information if DanO was running the show, but Wayne isn't exactly Mr Slow-And-Methodical.

    Hopefully after the trade anniversary, a reporter will ask Wayne about it.

    My guess is that the Reds have no case. Wayne spouted off about filing a grievence before he had all the facts or thought everything through. If Wayne really had proof on Bowden, I suspect he would've filed it before the end of last season, in order to save face. Yes, this is just my speculation, no proof.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Maybe the Reds are waiting for the patient to expire.

    I'm all for it. I wonder if he'd offer to give the money back for this season if they cut him?
