    Lewis Outrighted

    Wow. This is certainly a shocker.

    Seems to open another spot on the 40-man. Phipps?

    I would hope it's for him. He's really the only person I see being added who's not on the 40.

    I don't really understand this one, at this point in the season.

    Clear a spot on the 40-man for someone who could actually help the Reds next year.

    That being said, I think Fred Lewis was not the problem with the Reds this year. I wish him the best and he did pretty well this year doing what I thought he would (getting on base vs. righties). .342 vs righty pitching.

    A puzzle for certain. I find myself cross-referencing the dusty and walt are not on the same page thread for a possible explanation.

    Louisville needs someone to play the field for a few games. Hermida's gone. Who can they put out there?

    Yes, puzzling. Seems as if they would have done this one back in July.

    One way to play Alonso more is to take players away from Dusty, and my hunch is that Jocketty just did that.

    I look for one of either Jocketty or Dusty to not be back next year.

    Several of the AA kids could have covered it for a few days.

    That and they are getting some guys from other levels.


    And for what it's worth, I was never a big fan of Lewis.

    +1 Similar to the Gomes trade. IMHO I wouldn't be surprised if the Reds added nobody to the 40-man in September to take Lewis' "spot."

    Maybe its as simple as Lewis did nothing to impress and they needed a space. What is that, Occam's Razor?

    Taking away one of Dusty's toys, perhaps?
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Yep, they likely told him he'd be riding the pine for the rest of the month, knowing the current Red brass they also likely gave him the option to hang around and slap some young guys backs or go home.

    Perhaps he chose to go home or try catch on with another organization for the duration. That wouldn't surprise me.
