    I've already accepted it. Does that count?

    Hamilton sealed Bubba's fate. How many lefty hitting outfielders can a team have?

    If Reds go with a five man bench sounds to me like Deno, Hopper, Moeller and Bellhorn are competing for one spot. Two if a six man bench or if somebody gets DLd.

    Nice.

    Need some terminology help. Does "outright" remove a player from the 40 man roster? I think it does, but just looking for verification (which I can't find).

    The Reds are going to need to clear a few 40 Man spots if guys like Hermanson or Santos are to be kept.

    Bubba's been taken off the 40 man on the Reds.com
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Santos won't make the team. He's injury insurance.

    Agreed, but we're a week from the roster being set and he's still here. With Maj, Bray, Lizard and others lame (and Milton and Lohse really lame) they need to make a spot if they are going to use him.

    Burton will likely make the team in Bray's absence. I'm not sure the Lizard makes the team, even if he's healthy.

    Agree right now. But I wonder about Milton and I could see a DL stint for his knee with a rehab to follow. I know we all want him released, but if they do anything, the DL is more likely and they'll need a spot if Santos is the guy.

    Re: Per Rosecrans Bubba outrighted to AAA

    I think it's funny how over the offseason people shouted me down when I said the rotation is STILL the main problem with this team; I was told, "no, no, we should be fine with the trio of Arroyo, Harang, and Lohse--and Milton's basically your average #4." Well, folks, here we are, just as I said, scrambling around like a guy late for an interview, hoping and praying that 60% of the rotation doesn't implode, night after night after night.

    I still say Bailey for Jennings would have been a masterstroke deal, setting us up for a real run at the Central this year (plus we'd have gotten draft picks when he left via free agency).

    Que sera sera. I guess that contention date gets pushed back 2008, eh? Better pray Homer's not a dud.

    Yeah, trading the first or second best pitching prospect in baseball for a guy who has never posted a WHIP under 1.37 would have been a wonderful deal...for the Rockies. Homer Bailey for Jason Jennings? Good Lord FCB.
