Krivsky in Louisville. . .
Talked to Wayne Krivsky a bit ago for my off-day story. He's in Louisville.
He quickly added that it was scheduled trip. "Don't read anything into it."
So it looks like the club won't do anything in the wake of the 2-5 homestand that was somewhere between horrendous and abysmal. There aren't a lot of options right-handed hitting options at Louisville, and that's what the Reds need. Jeff Keppinger? Jeff Bannon? Nice players, but not the kind of guys you bring up and play every day.
There are pitching options. Homer Bailey's throws Wednesday, I believe. Brad Salmon would add a live arm. Phil Dumatrait has been dominating.
I am surprised that the Reds can't convince Philadelphia to take back Rheal Cormier. The Phils one lefty in the 'pen, Matt Smith, has like eight walks and one strikeout. One of those live arms at Louisville would do the Reds more good than Cormier at this point.
