    Reds release David Ross

    Per MLB text messaging. Ryan Hannigan has been called up to replace him.

    Good. Cut off the dead weight.

    Atleast we'll have a decent amount of time to evaluate what Hannigan can do for us.

    Ryan arrived in Cinci this morning after being told last night. If at all possible, can someone pm the best suburbs/residential areas around Cinci? Would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I like that they called up Hanigan. But why release Ross and not Bako. They are going to eat a lot of money in releasing Ross. He was rumorerd to be interested in by the Marlins. Now they picked up Paul LaDuco. Why didn't we trade him and try to get someone instead of eating his salary. I want to say he's making 3.5 million this year. Then they go and send Bailey down to activate Harang from the DL. Why not keep him in the rotation and sending out Fogg. The Rockies were supposedly interested. This team boggles my mind and their decision making. I don't get it. Same with Hariston. Hasn't played in seven days so our bench is short a player while we continue to send Patterson out their. Why not call up and see what Dickerson has. Don't get it!!!

    Actually, I'm shocked.

    I like bringing up Hanigan to see what he can do, but shocked that they just release a player like David Ross, who has been a decent player for them. He hasn't been spectacular, but neither has anyone else. I don't like treating players this way.
    Who's on first?

    I don't know all the rules after the deadline, but don't we still get a 10 day window to trade him if somebody claims him?

    Phew. For a moment there, I thought we'd only have two catchers on the team.

    Silly me.

    How does this happen? Bako is terrible, he does not belong in the Majors, and Javy isn't even a catcher. He doesn't do anything but pinch hit. Ross has decent pop, he's our best at throwing out runners, and hes a good bunter. Bad decision in my opinion.

    I don't get this at all. Both Ross and Bako were equally defensively-deficient but at least Ross swings a serviceable bat. Furthermore, Pornstache is less useful than either one, despite Dusty's efforts to make him into Roberto Freel. This makes no sense whatsoever.

    It's a business...and he gets paid regardless.
    I'd like to get paid without working.
    I think David Ross like all MLB players is being treated very well thank you...

    Ross was likely gone after the season anyway. The only purpose he served was to prevent them from getting a better look at Hannigan--Besides weren't the Marlins supposed to be interested in Ross? I think they have 10 days or something to trade him.

    Why DFA Ross? If he just walks as a FA I miss Krivsky more. Krivsky seemed to have a knack for getting something for nothing just remember 40 yr old Jeff Conine this time of the year last year. I'm disgusted if a trade isnt close and he walks for nothing to someone like the Marlins.
