    Coffey sent back down

    He's not the one I expected to go to make room for Homer, but that's the call they made.

    Wow. Who reported this? I mean I'm glad that McBeth isn't going down, but I was hoping someone else would go.

    Unreal. Coffey > Majewski. I don't care how you need to justify the trade. Salmon and Coffey are two of our top 3 relievers and they're in Louisville.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Let's face it, other than Weathers (who can't be sent down and won't be sent out) and Stanton (who is like a pesky wart) everyone else has a case for them and a case against them.

    May as well pick a name out of a hat, because anyone you choose can be justified. There's just not much talent out there.

    From Trent's blog:
    It's official

    From the Reds:


    The Reds selected from Louisville the contract of RHP Homer Bailey...he will wear #34 in his Major League debut as tonight's starting pitcher.

    RHP Todd Coffey was optioned to Louisville.

    Tickets are available for all 3 games of this weekend’s series against the Indians.

    Yep, when you give up this in 24 innings .309/.396/.505 you're on the bubble if you have options.

    Well Coffey can now go down and show for another 10 days why he shouldn't be pitching in the minors.

    Hopefully he can start showing he shouldn't be pitching in the minors when he's up in the majors. I've been pretty supportive of Todd, but he just hasn't been good this year so far.

    They didn't exactly give him much of a chance since he's been brought back up. He got to throw to a whopping 4 batters. What was the point in bringing him up in the first place, if they didn't think he can get major league hitters out?

    Homer will be wearing #34? I wonder if anybody has bothered to tell Jerry Gil...

    Sounds like Gil was just offered a copy of the home game

    he's percolating for a while. It's a bit old-fashioned, but some folks swear by it.

    I agree it's roster bingo but that's the way it is when you have options, aren't pitching well on a bad a team, and aren't the guy that the team wants to flip if they can get a string of semi-decent appearances out of you.
