It’s not a surprise, but I’m a little disappointed that Brian Shackleford was sent to AAA to make way for the newest Reds. I had hoped to see David Weathers designated for assignment, but I know that’s just wishful thinking.
In other bad news, Dewayne Wise cleared waivers (surprise!) and he’s going back to Louisville. Wish they had just cut him loose. If Wise were just AAA roster-filler, I wouldn’t mind as much, but I’m afraid that GM Wayne Krivsky is going to be tempted to bring him back to the big league club at some point in the future.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Wise made me miss Quinton McCracken.
