    I seriously think Ramirez is capable of being a decent back-end guy next year. We know what we have with Harang and Arroyo, I guess the big thing is if Homer learns to get out ML hitters. Get one free agent starter, move Belisle back to the pen which would help out there. I realize this is alot of "ifs" that have to happen for our rotation to work out but you never know. Now if none of Bailey, Ramirez, Belisle, or Livingston can cut it next year (this is also a possibility) we are looking at an absolute disaster of a season.

    Actually, slot Saarloos in ahead of Dumatrait too. Nope, he's not a good pitcher, but I'll take him over Dumatrait.
    I was with you until you brought Saarloos into it. I wouldn't let him clean the toilets in the stadium let alone take the mound again.

    I think EZ should be next unless he is still building up arm strength. I'm for running everybody out there just to see what we have, although John Galt's idea of keeping some in the minors to protect any shred of value has real merit.

    I'm positive of what the Reds have with Dumatrait, and I don't want it.

    Much as I'd lack enthusiasm for more of Saarloos, I'd still rather see him than Dumatrait. Also, I'm a fan of prolonging the illusion of value.

    I agree, Dumatrait just is perfect where he is. Somewhere that makes his stats look respectable, and maybe someone (Texas?) will bite thinking he could be serviceable at the big league level. I seen him pitch in the AAA AS game and he looked rough.

    saarloos has proven more than once he can't get hitters out and you still want him? No wonder your fantasy team sucks

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Whoever he was I'm glad he's back, his baseball knowledge is overwhelming, it's far too much to process in one sitting.

    . . . so I'm only half right. ;-) If everything you say continues to be correct (not that you've made any claims that are too radical), I'm going to guess that you're a janitor who looks through Krivsky's paperwork or you're an immature intern or administrative assistant who works with some of the management in the Reds organization.

    By the way, what's your IP address?

    This would be my guess. Or it is a guy named Joe or Sam, or you know one of those guys well.

    This guy is cracking me up. I suppose if these moves come true then we can all eat our crow but normally "insiders" don't come onto the board with the tone this guy has. If you're an insider and correctly predict these moves, more power to you. If you don't predict them, get ready to be run out of town.

    Why would anyone eat crow?

    Style and tone matter. His are horrible. That's got nothing to do with the information he is imparting, true or not.

    *If* (big if) his information proves to be true and everyone of the said players is called up, then I have to give him some props because I'm doubting him right now. Style and tone do matter but, IMO, they are secondary to correct information. If he wants to play a little make believe world that he is GM of the Reds he can play that game all day long if he provides correct insider information. Just my opinion on the matter though.

    I'm with you 100%. Knowing this "inside" info is not worth it if we have no idea why things are happening. It's like saying that 5 people you work with are being fired, but no one knows why, and no one knows if their job is safe. It's annoying to here, "I have a big secret that I can't tell you, but I'll give you a hint."
