Lots of questions, speculation, and discussion about the composition of the Reds Opening Day roster. Here’s a roundup.
— John Fay says the roster is getting clearer.
— Rosencrans agrees that it appears the Reds will go north with three catchers. Ugh.
— In the Post, Rosencrans also notes that Victor Santos still has a shot at that last bullpen slot. I don’t have a problem with giving Santos a shot in that role. No one else really stands out, so it’s a crap shoot, as far as I’m concerned.
— Over at Reds Rally, Joe Schmoe doesn’t see a problem with keeping Moeller on the roster.
— Tyler Hissey has some thoughts on the roster over at Redlegs Rundown.
— Doug has some interesting news about the possibility that super-prospect Jay Bruce will be in AA Chattanooga soon.
— Bobby Livingston: close but no cigar, says Mark Sheldon. Rosencrans and John Fay agree. Sounds like Livingston has a great attitude about his demotion. As I said earlier, don’t be surprised to see him in Cincinnati very soon.
— Kyle Nagel on Jared Burton, the unlikely leader in the clubhouse for that last bullpen slot. As with Santos, I have no problem with this. Throw these relievers against the wall and see which one sticks.
