    Coutlangus DFA

    Per team press notes. Did not see that one coming. One other spot on the 40 man will not be cleared until after 1pm, which is interesting.

    Beware of dropping lefties!

    hopefully this means that they're thrilled with Danny Herrerra and Pedro Viola

    Wow... that really isn't necessary. Dropping the count? Hmmmm...
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    The roster is raining lefties. Stanton, now Coulangus......

    Not sure I agree with this one, but okay.

    This is a horrible move. There is fodder on the 40 man roster but Cout was not it.

    Re: Coutlangus DFA

    Hopefully he'll be back, as this move otherwise makes no sense. A relatively young lefty, who is hard to hit, is tough on LHH, can miss some bats, who isn't all that easy to take deep, and whose primary issue is control related (not unusual for a LHP with only 40+ career IP under his belt). Not the guy you DFA on this roster.

    I figure that a Coutlangus trade has already been worked out, but the other team has to free up a 40 man spot for him, which'll be done within a day or two.

    That makes eminent sense and I hope you're right.

    Well if there is ever a time of year to try to sneak a guy like Coutlangus off of the 40 man it is probably now when teams are lagrely looking to shed players or to pick up a more estbalished player. Not the time of year to pick up a guy on whom there likely is limited scouting information.

    I hope you're right, and that this is part of a larger transaction.

    So do I. And I hope it is a decently significant transaction. Otherwise they are throwing away Coutlangus to keep Mercker. That would be pointless. Coutlangus may not be ready to help the Reds right now, but I'm guessing neither is Mercker. The difference is the potential to help in the future.

    Re: Coutlangus DFA

    I got the feeling last year that Cout was on his way out. They just seemed to give up on him.

    Hopefully, he is traded. I actually really doubt they are trying to sneak him past waivers for the purpose of trying to keep him. He will be claimed. IMO, there's no doubt that will happen.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
