    Dickerson activated; Rolen to the DL

    Per Fay's blog. No word on a corresponding roster move.

    Any chance at all for a Taveras DFA?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Probably because of the way he hit that wall last night on Holliday's long drive. I guess some one should have told him the wall was there.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Re: Dickerson activated

    See, now before I read this thread, I didn't even dream of WT getting DFA'd today. It wouldn't have even crossed my mind. Now I'm thinking about it, and hoping for it, even though I know it won't happen.

    Even when I expect absolutely nothing from the Reds, something happens to disappoint me.

    Taveras will do on the DL after running into the wall.....no way they'll eat that contract (though I certainly wish they would).

    I'm not a big Willy T. fan but in his defense "we'd" still be in 5th with or without him...there are so many holes that it's hard to believe he still catches the bulk of the redszone ire. Having said that a real live bat in left, a healthy patient Bruce in right and a platoon of Dickerson/Tavares in center wouldn't be a bad start to 2010....outfieldely speaking of course(yep i cheat in scrabble)

    That doesn't mean he deserves a spot on this team. Or any team for that matter. It's flat out embarrassing that this team chose to employ him for $6.25M when no one else wanted him.

    It's Rolen to the DL.

    ST. LOUIS - Scott Rolen was placed on the disabled list by the Reds this afternoon, as his concussion-like symptoms persist. Rolen was beaned by a 92-mph Jason Marquis (Colorado) fastball Aug. 2. He played two games since but has been idled since this past weekend.

    "It's the right thing to do," Rolen said. "This apparently clears up with inactivity."

    Rolen said he still has occasional headaches and fuzziness.

    The Reds in turn activated Chris Dickerson from the DL; he will start tonight in CF.

    "Scott is still a little woozy," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He's not seeing much improvement, so he's going to the DL. He's at a point where he's kind of stuck, he's in that zone. We were gonna wait a day or two, but we're short on the bench."

    Now Willy will sit for 14 days before playing again.

    Maybe no one told him about the wall because Gomes and Balentien saw a chance to get a below average-average (not horrible like Willy) CF in the lineup

    Scott gets a hockey players vacation for his noggin. Good call, he's milky but not tossing his lunch or having to sit down for an extended period of time.

    I calculate the Reds would've scored nearly 20 more runs with a league average guy in CF using BTT's Lineup Analysis tool.

    Replace all positions that are below average OBP and SLG with league average (that's CF, LF, SS and 3B) for the Reds this year and they score nearly 58 runs more. That still puts them at about 30 more runs allowed than scored. Probably not a winning record but I imagine the "hope-o-meter" wouldn't be zeroed just yet.

    Not a scientific study but they have to make up the difference somehow.
