Red Reposter - 5/7/09

New, comments
  • In case you turned the massacre game off early last night, Paul Janish pitched the 9th for the Reds.  I'm sure someone (Doug?) will have pitch F/X data up sometime, because the dude was blazing a low 90s fastball.  He struck out 2, dropping a killer change up on Jason Kendall to end the inning.  The Brewers also scored 5 runs on him.
  • Dusty Baker says the team will wait 3 or 4 more days to see if Alex Gonzalez needs a stint on the DL.  Am I the only one who thinks this is just stupid?  That means we will have gone a full week with 24 active players.  And after a 14-inning game on Monday and 8 innings from the bullpen last night, that sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.  I dont know.  I guess we'll see.
  • Prophetic words from the skipper: when Baker was told before the game last night that the Reds led the league in ERA (3.61), he said, "We've got more work to do, but we're on a good path."

  • Edwin Encarnacion injury update:  he had his hard cast removed from his wrist yesterday and was fitted with a removable splint.  He began range of motion exercises and the Reds are pleased with his progress thus far.
  • MLBTradeRumors gives us an explaination of Super-Two status, and also gives us possible Super-Two players for next offseason.  The Reds might see Nick Masset and Micah Owings reach Super-Two status.
  • Todd Coffey is feeling good in Milwaukee.  I wish him all the best.
  • John Perrotto at Baseball Prospectus takes a look at the Reds so far.  Did you know that Johnny Cueto ranks 7th in the majors in SNLVAR?
  • Daedalus wonders why the Reds do not bring up Homer Bailey and put Bronson Arroyo in the bullpen.
  • Crosley Field Terrace tells us that Sean Casey is on Bill Simmons' podcast this week. 
  • Chris Sabo's Goggles asks, "who is your most-hated Brewer of all time?"
  • FanGraphs congratulates the Dodgers for clinching the NL West already.  But THT isnt so eager to call the race just yet.
  • Finally today, Diamond Hoggers reminds me of my step-dad.
