    You had to post this the second I bumped the old thread. L-O-L.

    I would imagine. If they wanted him to just be depth for a while he could have been activated a couple days ago without going to Dayton for a game.

    I would think so. I don't think Janish has had an inning off since Cabrera has been out. He has to be a little winded at least.

    Not sure if that will make a difference either way. OCab is your primary starter the rest of the way, most likely.

    Bless the September roster expansion, bullpen depth and fresh arms no longer a concern...

    Barring a rash of injuries, that is probably all for reinforcements--with the exception of players like Nix and Edmonds getting healthy and coming off the DL.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    I know it works out well for the Reds but I think changing the rules- roster expansion- at the most critical time of the year is about the most absurb rule in all of sports.

    Next to the NFL tuck rule that is.

    The rule is what it is, and I am glad for once it works in Cincy's favor.

    More news: Johnny Cueto didn't make the trip to Cincinnati.

    John Cueto did not accompany Reds to St. Louis. Absence due to "serious family issue." Brandon Phillips back in lineup after wrist boo-boo.

    Reds insist Cueto's absence totally unrelated to this series. No details yet offered on family issue. Mgr. Baker may elaborate later.

    I don't see a problem with it at all, except in some kind of abstract way. Every team's got a bunch of young guys who should be able to provide reinforcements at the end of a long season. Helps teams get through that last month, avoid injuries and get some of the youngsters acclimated to the majors.

    I hope it's nothing too serious. If Reds are fudging this so he can avoid the nastiness that surely awaited him, I think it's a good move.

    I definitely don't think this has anything to do with the St. Louis series. He already isn't pitching this weekend, so really there's no reason for him to not be there.
