    C Trent:
    * I just talked to Walt during the break. I asked him about the non-tendered players. He said they have to wait to announce them. He laughed when I asked if I could read into who is and isn't here. Edwin Encarnacion is here, Gary Majewski and Matt Belisle aren't.

    C Trent is blogging here from Redsfest and emailed Tim at mlbtraderumors.com. Arthur Rhodes is also here which was pretty neat. Edwin is here which indicates he'll be offered arbitration.

    Yippie!

    Now, make sure that no one, I mean even the clubhouse guys, talks to their agents. Do not, under any circumstances, do anything even like sending them a Christmas card.

    Sweet! That also frees up what 1 or 2 spots on the 40 man, Belisle was on the 40 man wasn't he?

    I'm glad to see Majewski go, but I have to say I'm a bit melancholy about Belisle. Not that I think he should have been retained, just that I always thought he'd be a contender.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Belisle end up w/ minor league deal down the road

    I would, at least one with the Reds. I remember him not being too happy about the demotion to the AAA bullpen from the ML rotation.

    I'm putting money on him being a Cardinal and shutting us out twice next season.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Yeah, I meant w/ the Reds. Being demoted with a major league deal can be frustrating. Being unemployed changes ones perspective quite quickly.

    Hopper, Majic man and Belisle all non-tendered!!

    WOW i didnt see that happening with Hopper... we need outfielders and he did do well before he was hurt.. hmmmm amazing we only have 2 outfielders on the 40 man now!

    It looks like The Reds will not tender contact offers to Norris Hopper, Matt Belisle and Gary Majewski.

    Hopper is the shocker to me. But apparently the Reds have some sort of deal worked out. If they, don't they're down to two outfielders on the 40-man. According to agreed-upon rules of a the game, you need three outfielders.

    It sounds like the Reds and Hopper have an agreement for something. He was at Redsfest tonight, should be interesting to see if he is still there tomorrow.

    Re: Hopper, Majic man and Belisle all non-tendered!!

    Weren't there indications at the end of last season that some in the Reds organization were irritated that Hopper and Freel rarely checked in, or visited the clubhouse, after being placed on the DL?
    And is Fay referring to a deal with Hopper, or with another outfielder?

    Sign Hopper to a minor league deal, his perfect role is in AAA at our disposal to be used in case of injuries.
