If you weren't already depressed about the recent state of events, let me direct you to this:
Brad Salmon will be optioned to Louisville on Sunday morning to make room for Bobby Livingston, who will start Sunday's game for the Reds.
Salmon was 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four games.
I'm sure the reasoning here has to do with who has options, but I just don't care. If the Reds don't care about putting the best possible team on the field then why should we care about the Reds?
(In the immediate sense, I'll always care about the Reds, but as far as 2007 goes I think everyone would have to admit that the team's pretty close to done.)
