    Nobody should be called up.

    Dickerson should stay there until the end of the AAA season where he won't miss any at-bats.

    The others should stay at AA until the rest of their season to continue their growth. There's plenty of playing time left in the Winter Leagues for the AA players and AAA will be waiting for all of them next season, including Cumberland. Stubbs should begin next season in AA, no matter what.

    In September, Dickerson will be sharing playing time in the Outfield in the Majors.

    Agree with Buckeye. Have to give priority to getting your prospects to the level they need to be--Henry and Dorn to Louisville. Mackowiak back to Chatt. if that's what's necessary to keep him around and you're committed to that. Personally I see no reason why we'd be committed to that, especially if we're going the youth direction.

    IMO it's Henry easy. Although Dorn deserves a trip as well. BTW is Dickerson actually being called up?

    On pure merit, Henry probably deserves the promotion. Yet I'd be tempted to make it Stubbs. Why? Anything he does well will be a resume enhancer and if he struggles then the Reds can pass it off as conscious overpromotion (we were just getting him a taste of AAA, so he'd know what he's in for next year).
    I like to challenge but not overwhelm hitters.

    I'm confident that Stubbs is being challenged in Chattanooga, and would be overwhelmed in AAA.

    Henry should have been promoted some time ago

    Move up all 3 and get rid of some of the career minor leaguers at Louisville

    Think Dickerson's pissed for not being called up?

    Dickerson gets ejected tonight after the 1st AB of the game, when he got called out on strikes.

    I love the passion.

    Dickerson should be starting in CF for the REDS in 2009, even if it's just for one year until Stubbs gets there.
