If you have read Redleg Nation for any length of time, you know that I’m a big fan of Reds shortstop Paul Janish. Love the guy. However:

Free Zack Cozart:

With the Reds currently sitting 2.0 games out in the competitive National League central, I’d be curious to learn why the organization is operating as if the league worst -.5 WAR Cincinnati shortstops have produced is not a key factor in the team being in third place instead of first.

At present, there may not be a more obvious call up candidate in all of minor league baseball than Zack Cozart based on AAA production and need at the big league level. Common sense would say the call could come at any moment since Cozart is already on the 40-man roster.

It almost makes too much sense.
