September Callups


The Louisville Bats lost yesterday, ending their playoff run and their season. (I'm disappointed. I was hoping they'd come to Scranton this week to play the SWB Yanks.)

As expected, with the Bats' season over, the Reds announced a bunch of callups. Paul Janish is one of those who got the call. Perhaps surprisingly, Homer Bailey, Matt Belisle, and Daryl Thompson did not get called up. Even though they're on the 40-man and have started for the Reds before.

The Reds are going to have to clear three roster spots for guys they called up who weren't on the 40-man. Jerry Hairston, Jr., on the 15-day DL, could be put on the 60-day, but I'm not sure what they'll do about the other two spots. A bunch of infielders (and no outfielders) were called up, which may not bode well for Andy Phillips.

Then again, maybe he’d welcome his release. His wife Bethany due to give birth to their first child this month. I’m sure he wants to be with her, especially after all they've been through.

you can't even tell Andy's on the team anyway.

Yeah, he's so buried on the bench it's unreal. Did he run over Dusty Baker's cat or something? I thought Torre was bad, but this is a whole new level. So much for the theory that bench players get more playing time in the NL.
