    Sappelt up

    Suprised that this has not been posted yet, but according to John Fay, Heisey will be put on the DL, and Sappelt is on the way!

    Who gets booted off the 40 man?
    "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."

    No big deal, you said you were surprised this had not been posted yet. I just posted the link to let everyone know we were discussing the subject in another thread, but you are right I think it deserves it's own thread.

    So, I guess it's time to play everyone's favorite game show..."Guess The New Guy's Number"!

    I'm gonna guess 9, with 17 as a darkhorse candidate.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    31 is also in, with Gomes gone. I'm going with 17, thinking they're saving 9 for Mez.

    No one. They've been holding at 39 since the Gomes trade.

    Glad to see Sappelt brought up. Hopefully he'll get a chance to play every now and then.

    His AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS line at Louisville has been:

    .313/.377/.458/.834.

    Even better slits against southpaws.

    He at least should get some PT against LHP.

    He and just about everybody else on the Reds.

    Sappelt CF
    Phillips 2B
    Votto 1B
    Alonso LF
    Bruce RF
    Frazier 3B
    C
    SS
    P

    Stubbs can play against LHP with Bruce, Alonso and Votto all taking some turns sitting it out.

    That line will look really nice when Dusty only gives him 5-6 abs a week.
