    These guys aren't quite in the top 30, but are worth some notice.

    Todd Redmond-Acquired from the Pirates before the 2008 season, Redmond has spent the last three years in Triple-A and has improved each year.

    This year he went 10-8 with a 2.92 ERA and struck out 142 batters in 169.2 innings. Redmond could be a fifth starter for a bunch of teams, but his role with the Braves appears to be an emergency starter just down the road in Gwinnett.

    He's 27, 6'3. Not a great fastball, has a great changeup, and a decent curveball. Supposedly has great control.

    Best of luck to Janish, but I'm not going to miss him.
    "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."

    I had heard the Braves were looking for stopgap SS and thought of Janish. Redmond was on the 40 man in Atlanta so he goes on the 40 man in Cincy. Decent get for the rotation's depth chart.

    Funny tidbit. Janish will go to Atlanta, but if he didn't, he would just walk to the other side of the complex as the Bats and Gwinnett Braves are playing each other.

    Thanks to Janish who always played hard and is an excellent defender. Hope he does well with the Braves.

    I'll miss Soft J. Always thought he was just fine and should have been the utility man instead of Cairo.

    I didn't know him until this year and it was only for a few days but he was very very nice and cool.

    Good luck Paul! I hope he gets a chance to play some for the Braves.

    I concur he would have been fine as the utility man over Cairo.
    Stop! Heisey time!

    Never really saw the wisdom of acqriring Valdez with Janish around and I liked Paul more than many, but getting a potentially useful arm for him is a good thing. With Didi and Billy moving up the ladder, they just had no room for Janish - good luck Paul.

    Really glad to see Janish get another shot at the big leagues. Redmond actually no-hit the Bats in 2010.

    I tweeted Ken Rosenthal asking him to report the Janish trade from the field and he did. I love Rosenthal. They did a nice job tying Didi and Billy into the report.

    Could Gregorius stick as the backup SS next year? He would be a left-handed bat on the bench.
