Saw a variation of this thread on the Sundeck and figured it was a worthy topic of conversation for the Old Red Guard.
First, predict which Reds minor league players on the 40-man roster will get a callup. Secondly, will Mesoraco be placed on the expanded roster so he can get a taste of the Big Leagues this season or will his debut be postponed until 2012? Finally, any other guys on the bubble besides Mesoraco you'd like to see in September?
I'll kick the exercise off by predicting we see IF-OF Francisco, OF Hermida, SP Volquez and Wood, and relievers Horst and Fisher.
I would like to see Mesoraco come up, but wouldn't be surprised if he has to wait, seeing as how the team has retained Hernandez for the duration of this season.
Guys on the bubble who might or might not get the call (with there only bring so many opportunities to spread around among the players): INF Valaika (who's been hot again lately) reliever Burton (injured most of the season) and Phipps (really hot, but not yet on the 40-man roster).
