    No one single player is the problem right now. Nothing is clicking with this team.

    Wow. Saarloos is far from the Reds' worst problem.

    I don't think we will miss him. Eric Milton could have done what he did.

    I doubt it. Saarloos was actually effective out of the 'pen and had a good outing his first start this year. He's basically being DFA'd for [B]one[B] bad game (albeit it was horrendous).

    Yes, I know he was,I think its more of a scapegoat thing.
    Not even Wayne would want to make himself look so bad by DFA ing all the players he needs to.

    I just don't get it. How much more can Castellini take??? Krivsky keeps jettisioning the mistakes he keeps making. I don't get it. The Reds continue to be a rudderless ship.

    I generally like Rosecrans, but he definitely missed the boat on this one earlier. Being optioned to Louisville is a FAR cry from being DFA'd. This move makes a lot more sense than he one I thought had happened.

    Saarlos has been grossly mismanaged this season. All spring training he prepares to start, he finishes a close second and he is moved to long relief, short relief, set up, closer (repeat), finally gets a chance to start and surprise, surprise his number of appearances, lack of set role and lack of prep to start have made him a more ineffective starter than in Spring Training.

    He's got starter stuff, prefers that role and historically performed better in it. Send him down, let him start, bring him back if needed. I still think he can be an effective major league starter for the Reds.

    Livingston will be working out of the pen, they'll likely make another move for Friday's game at Colorado, the next time Saarloos' spot comes up. Saarloos said he's been told he will pitch out of the bullpen with the Bats.
    Wait if Livingston isn't taking Saarloos' spot in the rotation who is? If Livingston is coming out of the pen they should have just called up McBeth.

    Walls, I was with you until you got here. Historically he's been a much better reliever than starter...

    In 71 GS, he has a 5.16 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and a K/BB ratio of 1.21.
    In 74 relief appearances, he has a 3.81 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and a K/BB ratio of 1.54.

    Clearly, he's been much more effective as a reliever throughout his career, and his performance this year so far justifies that. I just think that Narron needs to stop jerking him back and forth between middle reliever, set-up man, long guy, starter, etc. Either make him the 5th starter and take your lumps, place him in long relief, or use him as a middle reliever. He gives up too many walks to be a set-up/ high leverage guy, and it looks like right now his arm doesn't have the strength built up to sustain success in consecutive starts. It looks to me like he could be a 6th or 7th inning guy or a long reliever and be solid in that role, if only Jerry would keep him there.
