Cams, Janish is gone sir.
And probably not Hamilton because he still won't be Rule V eligible next year. Wasting a option year on him would not be smart (assuming he is optioned next Spring Training.)
Get MLBtraderumors Reds updates on Facebook.
Hoover will be back.
I think it would be wise to call up a catcher so that catchers could be used as PH down the stretch.
I think Willie Harris has a chance to get called back up.
That's my three. Joseph is a longshot imo.
If everyone is healthy, I guess I don't see many other callups.
Harris gives us an extra inf/of backup.. the Reds really don't have any bench bats at AAA that would be useful, imo.. I think Constanzo got his chance and is never going to see the ML roster again, barring another string of injuries.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
Gathright or Negron if you need someone to pinch run.
HRod for a LH bat
Navarro for a 3rd catcher
Hoover and Joseph because teams always call up a couple extra bullpen arms
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
Gathright was released. Negron had ACL surgery and is out for the year.
To be honest, I'd rather have a slower (but still fast) veteran base stealer who isn't going to run into outs as my pinch-runner over a couple of kids who blaze but take stupid risks. Neither Bowe nor Hamilton are particularly smart base runners at this point in their careers.
I guess by people you mean Kevin Goldstein too. Take it up with him for starters.
By the way, that followed an inquiry I made to him about...whether Theo Bowe was faster. But, whatevs.Kevin Goldstein @Kevin_Goldstein
Folks, for the 1,821st time Billy Hamilton is faster than any other baseball player, so quit asking how Player X compares.

Goldstein can say Hamilton is faster than Bowe. Saying it doesn't make it true. I'll take Doug's word for it. He has actually timed both many times and timed home to first. I think Doug knows more about the players in the Reds system than Goldstein and its not even close. Goldstein whips up hype about kids coming up.
Goldstein and "whipping up hype" is also false. He works overtime to NOT do that. Laughable. Follow his twitter if you want to test your hypothesis.
