    ***Not on 40-Man Roster

    The Reds 40 man roster is full. There looks like the Reds could create 3 or 4 40 man roster spots if needed by moving some players to 60 day dl. What moves would you make? What players not currently on 40 man roster need rule V protection in the December rule V draft?

    I put spaceing between the position groupings. Did that help?

    I'll make a stab at the pitchers. I think they'll let Weathers go and I don't think we protect Lehr, Wells, Thompson, Ramirez or Lincoln--depending of course on the spots we need. Personally I'd expose Bray too if necessary to protect somebody else.

    Lincoln has to be protected unless you are paying him cause he has contract for next year for 2mil.

    I would expect the Reds to remove the following players from the 40 Man roster:

    Bill Bray (Can't stay healthy)
    Justin Lehr
    Kip Wells
    Wilkin Castillo
    Danny Richar

    Add in Hernandez and Gonzalez as guys that the Reds will remove (ie. not pick of their options) for next year. So there are the following spots:

    Volquez (60 Day DL)
    Wells (not retained for next year)
    Hernandez (not retained for next year)
    Gonzalez (not retained for next year)
    Richar (60 Day DL)
    Castillo (60 Day DL)

    That's 6 spots, if I'm reading things correctly, no?

    This has a chance to be the stupidest thread of the week. It's the leader in the clubhouse.

    guys that will have to be protected this fall are Stubbs, Valaika, Heisey, Wood, Valiquette. Viola is probably due this year and there may be other Latin players. Reds might also opt to protect Dorn, Jordan Smith, Sean Watson. Logan Ondrusek?

    Rather insulting to call something someone obviously took some time with the stupidest thread of the week. Personally I am not thinking about the rule V draft yet, but maybe some folks are. Like I always tell people if you don't like it skip over it and read something else you enjoy. I think there are 65 pages of why the Rolen trade should not have been made to satisfy you.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Good info. That's 10 names. Spots freed up - probably 7 (Weathers, Gonzalez, Hernandez, Lehr, Wells, Richar, Nix, Thompson less one for Castillo coming off the DL). The 7 I'd protect are Heisey, Stubbs, Wood, Valaika, Ondrusek, Smith and Viola. Valiquette, Dorn and Watson would be left off for the draft. The Reds should release Taveras and Lincoln and protect Dorn and Valiquette. I wouldn't cut anyone else from the current 40 man unless the team can make some August or November deals to free more space.

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