John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer checked in with Cincinnati Reds General Manager Walt Jocketty today about the status of the roster.
“We’ll meet again Wednesday and review it. But I think we’re pretty well set. We’ve got 57, 58 guys. It’s a good mix.”
Which, of course, means no last-minute addition of Roy Oswalt. As much as I would be interested in having another Cy Young candidate in the Reds’ rotation, I’m getting even more interested in seeing some exhibition baseball start up again. The first Spring Training game isn’t until March 3, but pitchers and catchers report on the 18th, just 5 days away.
