Welcome Back Ross, Good Luck Mays

Marc says that David Ross indeed made it back for today's game to play binky to Bronson Arroyo, so the Reds had to make room on the roster. They did so by designating for assignment Joe Mays.

Mays recently sparked an argument between me and the Crack Technical Staff. CTS said that Ryan Freel would be a better choice to start, whereas I took the more practical approach of saying a pitcher would be better on the mound than a utilityman.

In any event, Mays had been scheduled to start Saturday. Marc says the pitcher is TBA. George Grande said during the game tonight that they seem to be leading toward starting someone on three-days rest, so I guess that would be Arroyo?

At least he's got his binky back. For all the good it's doing him tonight.

    I agree with CTS. Whoever we put on the mound won’t be able to pitch, so we might as well put out someone who can hit.

  2. Daedalus says:

    I am also inclined to agree with CTS. Well, that is assuming that you consider Mays as a pitcher. I do believe that Geiko Gecko could also pitch better than Mays, although I suppose one Lizard on our team is enough.

    Maybe they think Claussen will be ready to come off the DL by Saturday.

  4. KC2HMZ says:

    Disregard the last comment. When I posted it, I didn’t realize that Claussen threw 82 pitches last night.

    Right here in Buffalo.

    At the game I could have had two free tickets to, but turned ’em down because I didn’t know Claussen was starting for the Bats and I had to get up at 4:00 AM this morning to start work at 5:00.

    Lancaster says it looks like Germano will be starting at least on Sunday.
