    26 man roster rule

    Looks like our nice same man 5 man rotation streak will be done as of Saturday night. I hadn't heard of this new rule. I am not sure that I like it. Probably a collective bargaining thing right?
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    IIRC it's new this year along with the Concussion DL and bereaved/maternity short time leave

    So, who gets the extra start this weekend then?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    That's what they want you to think. But then a spot on the 40 man opens and suddenly it's the return of THE LIZARD.




    or possibly the Fogg Machine!




    or maybe just TVP
    "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."

    Why SyFy hasn't made a movie about the 2000-09 Cincinnati Reds pitching staffs, I'll never understand.

    You know, Jose Acevedo probably isn't too busy these days.



    And Dave Williams could resurface at any time.

    They made him start once. He did not get another start from what I recall.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
