    hmmm, might they consider bringing him back up immediately after tonight's game and send Leake down? Hard to remove Wood from the rotation the way he is pitching and Leake is the bigger concern in terms of innings pitched, right?

    Have to wait 10 days before recalling him (outside of a player being DL'd)

    actually, Fay just tweated that Francisco is packing his stuff. That would make more intuitive sense to me anyway.

    Wood and Frisco are going to AAA. I'm guessing Bailey or Chapman is on their way up.

    Ridiculous. They should have made the Edmonds move after tonight and sent Leake down.

    It's pure hell having too much talent in this organization. I long for the days of Jimmy Haynes, Eric Milton, and the revolving door of not ready for primetime starters and bullpen help from triple A. And the days of Chris Denorfia, and other wanna-be major league players. (I know Denorfia is still playing in the major leagues for San Diego, I think..........but how he remains in mlb is a mystery to me)

    Wow. Reds are no longer playing a man short; now they've got a 6-man bench.

    This series is looming bigger (for the FO) by the minute.

    Re: Travis Wood to AAA to make room for Edmonds

    Edmunds just showed up and gave a clubhouse speech about how he hates Larussa and wants to win this series badly. The whole team went bonkers and tore up the locker room. Votto hurt his wrist and Rolen hurt his hammy in the fraucaus. Phillips got kicked on his bruise. All three are out for tonight's game.

    I am not crazy about either move today but, every time I question WJ I end up looking foolish, so I will shut my pie hole.

    BTW - FWIW, I was one of the staunchest defenders of the Rolen Trade. I have, however, questioned several of WJ's other moves. Hope Edmonds can have the same type of effect on the clubhouse that Rolen has.

    I think it is a great move to have an extra bat on the bench for this series. They could not have used Wood any way.

    Me too. I looked really stupid when they signed Corey Patterson and then Willy Tavares. I thought those were terrible signings at the time.

    The Mike Lincoln move made me looked really pathetic. I thought he'd be bad.

    What does it matter? Wood only has about 35-40 innings left before he is shut down anyway. You need to skip him at some point, or shut him down early. Right now it makes sense to skip him.
