    McDonald DFA'd

    Baily up, Gomes up, Carlos Fisher up and McDonald has been DFA'd. Volquez to DL, Ramirez optioned. All according to C. Trent's twitter page.

    Good moves. I was wondering why Ramirez and why not Fisher

    Wow.

    Bailey is a mistake, but oh well.

    'Bout time Gomes came up.

    I guess Fisher is to replace Masset?

    Good moves IMO. Been waiting all year for Gomes to come up.

    Seems to me a Nix/Gomes platoon in left would be a pretty productive one. Who knows, Gomes could even become the cleanup guy against lefties.

    What a great day! No work, and Gomes will be here today! I hope we see him at least a bit vs. Cliff Lee. Go Reds!

    Funny, Gomes is the savior...haha Hopefully he just plays against lefties, which he will be fine doing. Looking forward to watching Fisher and Bailey, two guys with actual futures with the Reds.

    Another good thing, maybe this can be the last thread regarding McDonald...

    Re: McDonald DFA'd

    I feel bad for McDonald but tihis is a big-time business and it had to be done. Kudos as well to Gomes for accepting the AAA assignment and biding his time,

    Not crazy about the Bailey callup....but we'll see.

    I feel bad because i literally got up and did a jig when i saw the news. Thats what watching mcdonald will do to ya. i wish him luck but i dont expect to ever see him in the majors again. Gomes should have been here all year and fisher looks to have some promise. I like these moves a lot.

    11 years and about 1300 hits in the minors. It was a nice story to see him earn a spot on the Reds. It's too bad it didn't work out. Good luck to Mr. McDonald finding another team.
