    Re: Frazier sent down for Simon

    That stinks for him. He'll be back and handle it like a pro, but it's a bummer to miss out on Opening Day. Was going to ask if he got to stay around for the opening day festivities but I see the Bats open the season up tomorrow night as well.

    I really feel for the guy now. Madson's injury has really had a domino effect -- most notably on Chapman and Frazier.

    Do they really need another pitcher? Especially one that you know Dusty is NOT going to trust to use in any pressure situations.... therefore it will be like NOT having that extra pitcher.

    The Reds do need the pitcher. It's unfortunate, because Frazier deserved a shot, but the Reds do need the pitcher.

    There will be games, not very close games, when the Reds need to fill several innings. It's important to have a pitcher to fill those innings. Otherwise, the regular relievers will get wasted.

    That twelfth pitcher helps you give the main guys in the bullpen sufficient rest. It's necessary IMO.

    When Rolen goes on the DL in three weeks, Frazier will be back.

    As long as Rolen is healthy I like this. Cairo can fill in suitably for Rolen when he needs a breather and Frazier is not wasting away on the bench. Frazier is down in Louisville concentrating on becoming the best 3rd baseman he can be under the watchful eye of Mike Bell. With the trade of Francisco, Frazier has become the full time heir apparent to Scott Rolen. I want him getting as many reps as possible wherever that may be. If Rolen goes down for any length of time, Frazier comes up ready and able. If Rolen stays healthy all year, Frazier comes up just before the Sep 1st cutoff to qualify for the post-season roster. Well, that's the theory anyway...we'll see how it goes.

    The injuries to Madson and Massett, and the fact that Simon is a handy swingman. Tough luck for Frazier, but he'll be back IMO. Just keep doing what you're doing Todd.

    Re: Frazier sent down for Simon

    I personally think what they did to him sucks. They should have made that desicion days ago. He already sent his car to next city and done all the prep and he misses opening day and goes to AAA. Tough on a guys attitude. Off to the queen city. Please no rain. 3 hour drive ahead. Ready for a Reds Victory. Already had to hear it from neighbor (big cards fan) of who has the best record. It's already starting. LOL

    But will he be used? We know Dusty sometimes leaves spare parts wanting until the next 19 inning marathon. He already said he knows nothing about him.

    It's a difficult thing no doubt, but they couldn't make the decision days ago because they didn't know Simon was available until Monday, and he probably didn't officially become a member of the Reds until yesterday. My guess is the Reds warned Frazier when they signed Simon that it could mean that he was being sent down.

    I'm sure the Reds don't like to upset a guy, but sometimes you have to make hard choices to bring what you feel is the best 25 man roster.

    Good point. Still sucks, but I know this stuff happens. I thing the reds are good at handling these situations
