    One infielder is virtually guaranteed, as I am still listing Alex Gonzalez until he officially goes on the disabled list.

    They've gotta do what they've gotta do. Without the safety net that armchair GMs like us pretend we don't need

    Kriv is the anti-JimBo (non-disclosure vs. diarrhea mouth) Gotta give Bodes props for his bullpen assembly, though. From the late '80's through the late '90's we Red's fans were pretty spoiled with a lead after 6 innings
    Never overlook the obvious

    If either is still in the pen come June 1 instead of Roenicke I'll take back anything good anybody has ever said about Krivsky (its a shame they're there and he isn't as it is).

    Several people have said this throughout these threads about the roster, but it bears saying again. It's a long season; many things happen and a multitude of pitchers are needed in a season. As for Roenicke, he's played 19 games at AA and none at AAA. He's got good stuff, but he can use some additional seasoning. He may well be up by mid-year, he may not be. I'm liking Krivsky's method of step by step through the minors - another anti-Bowden way; who never hesitated to jump guys from AA to the ML level.

    Everything in good time.

    Great decision. And I believe Mercker will be more effective than Stanton, even if he's not a great option. Sending Bray down though is very puzzling. I agree with others that another move must be coming.

    What I'm wondering though is does this mean that the Reds will eat Castro's salary once Gonzo comes off the DL?

    Is Redszone eating itself?

    This should be good news, so why do I feel I should be ashamed of my feelings about it?

    Why do we hate ourselves all of the sudden?

    Re: Mike Stanton has been told he's being let go!

    I believe the reason it is between Brower and Lincoln rather than Bray is that the Reds want Bray to pitch regularly in tough situations and Brower/Lincoln will be the mop up guy. If everything goes rigth, at some point in the next few weeks, Bray will be back and one of those two will go (or someone else will go on the dl).

    Is Jim Brower this year's Mike Stanton (less three million or so)?

    Re: Mike Stanton has been told he's being let go!

    Here's a case of Dusty paying some dividends. A less experienced manager likely would have been reluctant to chuck a well-traveled vet.

    I figure the bullpen works out like this:

    Cordero
    Weathers
    Burton
    Coffey
    Belisle
    Affeldt
    Mercker

    That assumes Belisle isn't on the DL.
    Wait until the year after next year.
