    Well that doesn't make a ton of sense. The bullpen is already pretty crowded with right-handers.

    MLC with an invite to Spring Training I would bet. I have no problem with this, if he'd go to AAA he's depth in case someone gets hurt.

    Yeah, just figure he'll get a shot at a rotation somewhere like Colorado. If he cuts down on home runs, he'd make a nice fourth starter.

    Just added depth if they do get him...likely Louisville and possibly on a time deadline to make the team or choose to be released...

    I would think it would be the same concept, but Garcia is likely to be a much better pitcher than Tomko or Redmond. If the price is right and he is fine with being stashed in Louisville, I am all for this move.

    I'm really surprised they haven't signed Jamie Moyer for depth.

    Or atleast to be an usher.

    Seconded.
    "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 think it would be a good signing if hed be willing to play in Louisville. Maybe have him sign a deal that if he isnt on the major league roster he can leave by June 1st or something. Theres no way our staff stays healthy for 2 straight years. We need some depth other than Redmond and Villareal
