If they waited that long then they'd likely then elect to hold off until returning home on Tuesday, May 27th when the Pirates roll in.

    Re: Jay Bruce called up!!!!!

    Alright!!!

    I have to disagree with DFAing Patterson tho... for one financially its redic. Plus we need a natural CF on the bench. He'll provide a solid late inning defensive replacement for Griffey or Dunn (pushing Bruce to LF or RF and Pat in CF) plus some pop on the bench.

    i think I am going to go buy tickets during my lunch break downtown tomorrow!

    Are Patterson and Freel the most expensive bench players in MLB?

    Can someone post Bruce's numbers with the bats?

    Griffey at 1B is something I proposed last year. He still has defensive instincts and decent hands, he just can't move or throw. If his legs would allow it, I think he could be good there. I wonder if the stretch would be too hard on his legs.

    Votto in RF does nothing to solve the team's biggest problem. You would simply be replacing one poor OF for another and one plus defender for another. For this team to improve, it needs to replace a poor defender with a plus defender.

    I leave Votto alone. Griffey has to step aside for this to be the maximum benefit, but Bruce for Patterson would be a big offensive improvement. It would not help the defense and would expose Bruce to a lot of wear and tear. IMO the team improves more and Bruce is better served by him playing RF.

    From the press release:

    He has spent the season at Louisville, where in 49 games he hit .364 with 9 doubles, 5 triples, 10 HR, 37 RBI and 8 stolen bases. He leads the International League in hitting and hits (67) and ranks among the IL leaders in slugging percentage (.630, 3rd), runs scored (34, 4th), extra-base hits (24, T4th) and RBI (T5th).

    Hopefully by this time tomorrow we'll be able to erase Patterson off that list.

    Corey Patterson needs to take his .242 on-base percentage with him and immediately walk the plank toward DFA land and never return. If the Reds put up a bulletin asking for people volunteering to throw Patterson's bags into the Ohio River, I'd be getting in the car right now to head down to GABP to take them up on the offer.

    If I were Jocketty, I'd DFA Patterson immediately as a way of making a statement. And Belisle and Fogg would be not far behind. It's time for change.

    RHP Ian Snell is pitching tomorrow, does anyone think Bruce might get a chance to start?
    After facing Snell they face 4 lefties in a row.

    Dusty is still the manager. Baker can't seem to take Patterson out of the starting lineup. I will believe Patterson is D'FA'd when I see it.Good news however, and I hope Jay shows all of us a lot this year.
