    I would like to see Simon off for Leake (or even Tony Cingrani) as well as Cairo go down for a younger play who has a big future with the reds in either Henry Rodriguez or Didi Gregorious.

    Cingrani, HRod and Didi got a Sept Call up to get a taste of the show-not for a post season opportunity.

    Leake might replace Simon for the next playoff rounds.

    Cairo is a Dusty Lieutenant in the clubhouse - especially for the Latin players. He's not going to get moved off the post season roster unless he 's injured.

    I know why they were called up and I'm just saying that I feel like they would more effective than Cairo or in Cingrani's case Simon.

    Cingrani had three SEPT apprearances... they're not going to give the kid the ball...

    Other than his first appearance... Simon was a not a bad reliever.... though I agree that Leake should be there instead as the long man / pinch hitter / pinch runner.

    All things being equal, I prefer to fill out the bench with guys who have expereience in the roles they would likely play in the playoffs. For that reason, I like Simon better than Leake out of the bullpen. And I'm fine with Cario as a utility/emergency infielder. With Heisey, Frazier and Paul, as well as Navarro, I don't the benefit of giving up a roster spot on the chance that Leake might be asked to pinch hit or pinch run.

    Dusty and Walt, in my mind, made the right calls.
