In a move many of us have been clamoring for, the Reds called up Jose Arredondo (Twitter link, not very exciting), whose rehab stint was up, and sent Mike Leake-type starter-turned-reliever Mike Leake to AAA Louisville. I think it's safe to assume that Leake will be starting again in AAA, but no official word yet. I assume we're all in agreement with this move? If Arredondo can return anywhere close to what he was in his filthy, insane 2008, then this is a huge boost to an already strong bullpen. It also gives the Reds a fresh arm after last night's 10 inning WALKOFF VICTORY.

In 8 innings at AAA, Domo Arigato Jose Arredondo sported a healthy 11.25 K/9 to go along with a WHIP of 1.00. Would sure be nice if he kept that up, eh?
