    With the beatings stopping for now, the value should stop dropping.

    Here's a hint Gary, get people out.

    I might have to crack open a celebratory beer today with the news that Majewski is heading to Louisville!

    Now you can shift your anger towards some of the other contenders for the bullpen, such as Stanton, Mercker, Lincoln and Burton.

    It would appear the bullpen is nearly set: Closer Francisco Cordero, RHP David Weathers, LHP Mike Stanton, LHP Jeremy Affeldt, LHP Kent Mercker, LHP Bill Bray, RHP Todd Coffey, RHP Jared Burton (or RHP Edinson Volquez is they strangely decided to keep Homer Bailey as the No. 5 starters, which shouldnít happen). And Mike Lincoln, with his 95 miles an hour fastball is hanging in there.

    It looks as if the main decisions are whether to keep Mercker or Bray as a third lefthander because Stanton and his $3 million contract are locked in. And the last righthanded spot is between Coffey (perfect all spring), Burton (a struggler and straggler) and Lincoln - out of baseball for three years after TWO Tommy John surgeries, but back throwing harder than ever.

    Majewski is actually *****ing at the move and blaming the Reds? That is too much. Hey Gary, guess what, this wasn't all based on THIS SPRING. This was also based on you absolutely sucking for the last two years. Now get down to Louisville, work hard and maybe we'll see you back.

    For the Reds' sake and for his own, Gary Majewski really needs to be traded. He needs a change of scenery. Maybe he can go somewhere else and become an effective pitcher (and maybe not), but it isn't going to happen for him here.

    I agree 110%. Maybe Chicago or Milwaukee?

    I don't quite get McCoy's view on the bullpen. I would think that Cordero, Burton (despite bad spring), Weathers, Affeldt, Bray are locks. That leaves Stanton, Mercker, and Coffey for two spots. If Reds feel they need to keep Stanton due to contract, one open spot remains for Mercker or Coffey. Since 4 lefties is ridiculous, I'd expect Coffey to get the spot and Mercker be let go.

    The team just made a big drop in the number of vowels on the roster.

    No question. He had the deer in the headlights look from the first day. I think the controversy of the trade must have gotten too him. Just my theory. He needs to go somewhere where he is a low key just another guy. Probably not in a pennant race.

    As for his complaints, I think 35 pitchers in camp is a lot, but if last year's guys would have pitched better, the team probably wouldn't be turning over every rock to a find a reliever. He just needs to pitch well. It looks like the scattershot approach may pay off. Word is Mike Lincoln is throwing 95 MPH.

    I don't see where Jared Burton should be a lock. Sure, he was the second-best reliever in last year's pen (behind Weathers), but he only has half a season of effective work under his belt--less than Coffey, to be honest. And they have similar skill sets.

    But when it comes down to it, Stanton would be the one I would cut out of the herd. I would also send Lincoln to AAA to continue his comeback.
