    Victor Santos has made the team

    For those who haven't seen, Santos had his contract purchased this morning.

    I guess KC wouldn't trade Reggie Sanders.

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    No, Livingston deserved to be the 5th starter. Santos faced mostly scrubs.

    ugh.

    I have concerns about Livingston's velo, but he handled Boston pretty well while Milty was getting slober-knockered in an A-Ball game.

    It is no big deal. He is only around until someone gets healthy anyhow.

    It is probably better for Livingston to settle in at AAA and pitch regularly until he is needed.

    Santos can't help who he faced or worry about who others faced. He earned the spot. This is no cut on Livingston, I was pulling for him also.

    what does manzanillo have to do with this? he pitched well, the scouts and narron and krivsky watched every pitch he threw, trf how do you know if he deserves a spot?

    There are certainly similarities - a detailed track record of sub par performance at the ML level followed by an great spring.

    I'm sure TRF hopes Santos does well, as do I, he (and I ) just won't bet on it as a month of good innings against mostly minor leaguers doesn't erase the past few years that Santos has put up.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Re: Victor Santos has made the team

    I think he pitched well but I have reservations as to whether this move is in the Reds' best interests. The Reds have a lot of pitchers on the DL and Santos is a guy they could have stashed in AAA. Now he'll have to clear waivers if they get in a numbers crunch and have to send him down. That numbers crunch could come as soon as this weekend re: Milton.

    Re: Victor Santos has made the team

    Manzanillo or not, he had a 0 ERA. What kind of message would that send to your players if a guy with a 0.00 ERA doesn't make the team when he has a legitimate chance of making the team (or supposedly)

    I'm more impressed with Livingston and Burton, in part because of age, and the fact that they are unknown quantities.

    Santos is a known quantity. And I ain't impressed with it.
