    Today's baffling roster moves

    I'm sure this will go ever well. The pitcher riding the option train to Louisville is...

    Jon Coutlangus

    Freel goes to the DL, and coming to Cincinnati are Majewski and Guardado. No, I'm not making this up, it's what the press notes really say.

    How Coutlangus goes over Coffey I will never know.

    This is a head scratcher.

    No pitcher's with ERA's under 4.00 under the age of 30 allowed!
    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.

    OK, and what message does keeping the other riff raff around say? I understand what you are saying, however, I think there were other choices.

    It's simple. With Bruce, Bailey, Votto, Cueto, Bray, all at AAA, now Cout, Reds are going for it -- at Louisville!

    Seriously, probably see a need for work on Cout's control. Maybe he can get a couple of games off down there, since he pitches every day at Cincy.

    A head-scratcher, indeed.

    Most of the time I understand the logic behind these moves. This one I don't.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Could there be a Coffey for Bray moving coming later today? Is Bray close enough?

    OK. The only bright light I can take from this is that Majewski and Everyday Eddie are getting their last shot at being in this teams' plans for next year. If they get pounded like a $2.00 steak hopefully the Reds can give them their release and move on.

    We don't need another bat to replace Freel? Gosling and Coffey still remain while you send down Coutlangus who has been one of the more effective arms in the pen..

    What is going on? This bullpen must really be in shambles if they need more arms then bats on this roster!
