    2 spots 3 guys

    The Reds will sent Gary Majewski and Bobby Livingston to Triple-A and place Bill Bray and Elizardo Ramirez on the DL to begin the year.
    Either Matt Belisle or Kirk Saarloos will be the fifth starter, with the other pitching in middle relief. This also means the Reds will keep two relievers from a group of Victos Santos, Jon Coutlangus and Rule 5 pick Jared Burton.

    Which 2 would you take between Victos Santos, Jon Coutlangus and Rule 5 pick Jared Burton?

    Coutlangus and Burton.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'd take Coutlangus : and Burton but I'm confident Coutlangus : gets sent down and Santos will make the squad.

    I think it's one spot and three guys unless someone is getting traded

    Harang, Arroyo, Milton, Lohse, Saarloos, Belisle, Cormier, Hermanson, Weathers, Stanton, Coffey. - that's 11, leaving just one open spot.

    I think they are trying really hard to get rid of Frenchie.

    Good point on Hermanson. Maybe Belisle is the 5th starter and gets optioned?

    That's one veteran bullpen.

    I'd take Burton, send down Coutlangus and Santos and keep the Belisle/Saarloos loser as long relief. Otherwise there's no one in the pen who can pitch long relief.

    One more reason, in a long list of them, to trade some old guys and give these young guys a shot.

    Re: 2 spots 3 guys

    Reports we saying yesterday that the 5th slot was between Belisle and Saarloos

    ...and the final bullpen slots (2) were between Burton, Coutlangus and Santos

    That seems to indicate that Belisle gets optioned (because that would never happen with Saarloos)

    So we're either looking at:

    Belisle, Saarloos, Burton
    or
    Saarloos, Burton, ...and probably Santos

    The circle of life. His ERA is exactly the same as his chance of being on the Reds' roster on Opening Day.
