    Me too, but he signed at age 16, so I guess that does make sense.

    The Reds just now updated their active roster on Reds.com. Carlos Fisher, Juan Francisco, Sam Lecure, Matt Maloney, and Robert Manuel are now showing up on the Reds roster. They also re-moved Wilkin Castillo from the infielder category and placed him under the catcher category.

    I thought that Henry would nose out Manuel.

    you learn stuff this time of year.

    I hope Henry doesn't get swiped that would stink.

    I'd say that Krivsky's trade of Dave Williams for Robert Manuel was a win.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Reds don't seem the least bit concerned.

    and that Jeff Conine trade didn't work out?

    Don't forget Calvin Medlock and Shackelford for Shaun Cumberland and Jorge Cantu.

    They also think Majewski is worthy of a 40 man spot, so forgive me if I don't appreciate their intelligence fully.

    But my guess is they don't believe he can currently stick at the major league level. I still think though he would eventually be a good solid 2B/OF who would be solid in every way off the bench.

    I wonder what TB and the like will leave available for picking through. I think Walt is definitely gonna pick at least 1 player up in the rule 5. Where will we pick, same as the standings?

    Well if you do a bit of a flashback he could be. Of course you have to keep in mind that Guevara was very successful in AA and that the reds wanted an open slot to select.....? Valenzuela somebody who didn't last through ST. I guess it depends on if they lose him and/or who they gain through the rule 5 draft or free agency.

    That is one scary utility-laden 40-man.

    I can see the lineup come August, with Votto, Bruce, EdE and Phillips banged up.

    1B Keppinger
    2B Richar
    SS Janish
    3B Gonzalez
    LF Rosales
    CF Hopper
    RF Freel
    CA Castillo

    Scrappilicious!

    I'm surprised Belisle is still around. He earned $1.2 Million in 2008 and the Reds can only cut his dollars on a Major league deal to I believe 70% of his 2008 deal. Since he's likely ticketed for AAA again, that sounds like a non-tender in the making. Why not just cut bait now and open a spot for Henry? I think the team should have protected Henry.

    Some names that interest me that weren't protected:

    James Skelton - C. He's a LH hitter who may fit with Hanigan. He only has 85 ABs in AA but he's had an 800+ OPS whereever he's played and had a good fall season in Hawaii. I'd take a chance on him. If you could get him through the season with some DL and rehab time in AAA, he'd be the team's top catching prospect. He could make up for lost playing time in winter ball next year. With Owings around to add an extra bat, the Reds could afford a roster spot for a guy with potential.

    Chuck Lofgren - LHP. He was a top prospect a year ago. He had a horrible year, but what the heck. The Reds need a lefty.

    Kevin Whelan - RHP. Control challenged reliever who I wouldn't mind the Reds having, but no way he can stick in the majors. I probably wouldn't waste a pick on him.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
