    You'd prefer that he come into ST feeling entitled to the position? I wouldn't. He needs to earn his way up the chart.

    Well, I know it doesn't look like it but I actually meant for that head bang to be for Hatt over Votto. And yes, IMO the CF position should be Jay's to lose.

    Telling him he's not the number one option will only make Krivsky's nose grow and it wouldn't fool anyone anyway.

    I don't think this is 'official' other than its on the Reds website. I doubt Dusty Baker had anything to do with this thing, it was probably done by the guys (and gals) who do the Reds website.

    Good thing the season starts in April and not January.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Yeah I don't think it's a surprise that Bruce and Votto will have to earn their PT/#1 spots. And knowing the Lizard they'll really have to earn it.

    16 position players and 16 pitchers by my count.

    That means 7 of those players won't be gracing us with their (veteran) presence come Opening Day.

    My vote for the 7 would be:
    S. Valenzuela
    J. Fiorentino
    R. Hanigan
    J. Castro
    B. Livingston
    M. Stanton
    G. Majewski

    Any takers?

    I'm just glad to see the Reds place Castro 3rd string for all 3 IF positions. That's a sign, to me at least, that he will not make the team out of ST.

    I hope.

    Kepp, however, is a sure thing to make the roster; how much he winds up playing will depends on how well he continues to play, as it should be.

    Even though the word is Castro will be ready, I wonder if he doesn't start the season back on the DL recovering from his surgery. Likewise, the Reds could also talk him into retiring and hiring him as a roving instructor. Just a couple of thoughts this a.m.

    but not at shortstop. Curious.

    what's the earliest Livingston can come back anyway? I thought it was something like June or July.
    The happy talk is that Livingston will be pitching in June. The reality is that Livingston isn't likely to throw a pitch in a game situation till 2009.
