    Who Gets Called Up?

    I'm not always in the know on these things. I'm very busy with full-time work and a family, but I still find time to watch almost every game on demand (always FF between pitches) and check out the threads here 2-3 times a day. I appreciate the collective knowledge on this forum. Anyway............. who is likely to get called up from AAA after we resume play?

    I suspect if the Reds don't trade for Story or another SS, that Barrero gets the call late in July or early August.

    Most likely Barrero has to show more success at AAA before he gets the call. His current line there is: .171/.273/.343/.616

    I respectfully withdraw any of my previous calls to get him up here.

    But Iím firmly of the opinion that something has to give at both SS and 3B if the Reds want to be there in September.

    Exactly. No need to rush him until he shows he is ready. I believe he will succeed if they handle him properly which includes getting him ready through more playing time instead of bringing him up to what we hope is a pennant race.

    Barrero seems to now be showing he is "comfortable" with AAA. I remove my prior objection.

    No, but he’s also not the solution. If Barrera makes the team better, bring him up
