    Burton sent down to AAA

    I think this is the best option. More faith in Burton than other guys who are having problems. In a few years our bullpen will be the best. No doubt.Trimming the fat.

    Lincoln's time has got to come soon too.

    Lincoln doesn't have any options does he?

    Either way, it's not like Burton didn't deserve to go too. I have no problem w/ Burton or Lincoln going down.

    I just hope he can get himself back on track and start pitching like he is able to.

    Pleasantly surprised by this move. In years past it would have been a guy like Carlos Fisher that would have been sent down because of options, service time, etc. This is another move that tells me that this organization is moving in the right direction.

    Burton, I believe will be a big part of whatvever success the Reds have this year, but this no doubt was the right move.

    Just another great move Jocketty has made, Reds Bullpen is strong at the moment, so why not send a guy that is in a bit of a funk to AAA and get him out of it This Organazation is really pulling things togather IMO.
