Ok, let's try this again.  Going into Spring Training the Reds roster seems pretty set save for one area - the bullpen.  I'd like to hear who you guys would like to see as Reds relievers on April 4.  Here are the candidates:

Aaron Harang
Luke Hudson
Josh Hancock
Ryan Wagner
Kent Mercker
Jose Acevedo
Ben Weber
Dave Weathers
Brandon Claussen
Danny Graves
Todd Coffey
Joe Valentine
Brian Shackelford
Daylan Childress
Ben Kozlowski
Jared Fernandez
Jung Bong

Obviously some of those guys are going to be starters, but I didn't want to leave out any potential relievers, no matter how far fetched they might be.

Here is what I would like to see:

Closer:

Danny Graves

Bullpen:

Brandon Claussen
Kent Mercker
Todd Coffey
Ben Weber
David Weathers
Jose Acevedo

And my starting rotation:
Eric Milton
Paul Wilson
Ramon Ortiz
Aaron Harang
Luke Hudson

Everyone else would go to AAA, including Ryan Wagner.  And Josh Hancock would have to be slipped through waivers, although as I said before, it wouldn't really hurt my feelings much if another team were to claim him.

Let me know who you'd like to see in the Reds bullpen!

(I apologize profusely for the comments that were lost in the earlier crash!)
