    There is a thread about this on the ORG. It appears possible that he was sent down thus solidifying Owings as the 5th starter. I've been surfing the net trying to find something official on this but haven't been able to find anything.

    I thought I heard on Baseball Tonight Last night (Monday) that he was sent down.

    Any confirmations on this?

    They said that on ESPN, the other night, when talking about Owings as a possible sleeper pick, I just wondered if they were right, cuz I hadn't heard anything from the Reds.

    Yeah, the starter turned reliever thing sure worked for Papelbon. I would love for Homer to get a similar path.

    The relief then starter worked pretty well for Soto as well. I would sure rather see him get in a game than Massett.

    Remember when Johan Santana was long relief for about 2 years for the Twins?

    The reason we are where we are is because of decisions like this. We make 5th place decisions over and over.

    Bailey is pitching tomorrow for us so, we will have to wait to see what happens. IMO he should make the team and be the 5th starter and put micah in the bullpen

    Re: Bailey gonna make the team?

    Pshh. Micah and Bailey should both be in the rotation.

    Harang as the opening day starter and #1? Thats disaster waiting to happen. Arroyo should be DL'd or Harang should be in long relief if things were fair.

    Or as high as I am on Johnny Cueto........ he deserves a shot no more then Bailey right now

    I personally think harang will be fine, but as for arroyo i think he should put on the DL (forgot to mention that in last post) and traded later in the year. I mean we don't need arroyo at all anymore considering he doesn't bring much to the table.

    but if a decision was made to whether it should be bailey or micah in the rotation is should be bailey which backs up my original post

    He brings 200+ IP each season. No way you can pencil in either Owings or Bailey for that. He's had double digit wins in 4 out of the last 5 seasons.
    I'm not a huge Arroyo "fan", but you can't deny his value to the club, whether we keep him another season or put him on the block.

    Putting him on the DL then trading him? Not the best way to build value, imo.
    I'm not cool enough to have a good signature
