    Jocketty on Chapman, Dickerson, Guillen

    From Fay:
    Dickerson is "probably" ready. #Reds would have to open 40-man spot. Jocketty: "You don't expect me to tell what we're going to do"

    Asked Jocketty about JGuillen: "I don't know. I haven't talked to our people yet." #reds

    Springer to get MRI for sore hip. Asked Jocketty if Chapman would be call-up if it's a DL injury, said "maybe".

    KC DFA'd him yesterday and he is actually drawing decent interest.. Bad July is part of his latest move.. Then you have the club house presence.

    When motivated, Guillen is a force, especially in GABP. But if he's not, he's a negative. Definitely would not give up anything to get him, and only a very waek maybe even if he's free.

    But baseball history is lined with veterans at the end of their career, picked up by a contender in August, and helping them get to the playoffs.

    We could pick up Guillen and then trade him to Oakland for Harang, oh wait....already been down that road. I will take Johnny G over Guillen any day.

    He'll be a good addition if the Reds need to demo the clubhouse.

    I have to admit, I'm getting a little tingly thinking about Chapman coming up pitching for Reds against the Cardinals.

    Does Guillen still have a cannon of an arm? He could be one to help split some time in RF until Bruces head gets back on.... But, I'd still be careful with that...

    I could see Guillen as a platoon with Bruce in RF.

    Guillen's numbers against lefties aren't great so far this year, but he is a righty bat and that would probably improve.

    Doubt it will happen, but that would be one way of using Guillen.

    I didn't realize how bad he has been in KC over the past 2+ years. But then again I wouldn't have a problem with .290/.353/.460 that he posted in Seattle a few years ago.

    How's a split or platoon get Bruce's head right again? I think you either demote the kid or play him every day. Sitting him half the time won't help.

    Re: Jocketty on Chapman, Dickerson, Guillen

    Bruce's stock has plummeted if folks are considering platooning him with Jose Guillen. Guillen is streaky hitter with a bad attitude, right now he is as cold as ice but the attitude is still there. I'd rather play Bruce everyday than deal with Jose.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
