    Glad to see we still have things to ***** about, inconsequential as they are.

    Just curious. Has Cantu ever played the OF? I'm willing to see anyone out there in lieu of Coats and Ellison. IF we had another option at SS, we could put Keppinger there.

    Now watch and see both Jason and Buck go 8-8 to spite me.

    The main reason they didn't bring Bruce up b/c he wasn't already on the 40 man and because once he is they'd have to pass him through waivers if they wanted to take him off.

    This gives them the maximum roster flexibility in the off season. Bruce will only be added to the 40 man if he makes the team out of spring training.

    Coats and Ellison were brought in BECAUSE they are expendable and because the Reds will have 2 extra slots on the 40 man roster when they are DFA'd after the season.

    I also think they wanted to get him some rest because he going to be playing for Team USA (IIRC) in an international tournament this fall.

    A breakout 2007 by Reds prospect Jay Bruce is not quite over.

    The outfielder, who began the season at Single-A Sarasota and ended it with Triple-A Louisville, will participate in the upcoming International Baseball Federation World Cup in Taiwan as a member of Team USA. The event begins in early November.

    "He's got a full plate this fall," Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky said. "He's going to instructional league for a week to get ready to go out to Arizona to be part of the USA team. So he's got a busy fall and early winter."
