Coffey out, Majewski in

From the Reds:

CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Reds today recalled from Class AAA Louisville RHP Gary Majewski and optioned to Louisville RHP Todd Coffey.

Majewski has pitched for the Bats all season and went 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 15 relief appearances (16ip, 14h, 8er, 4bb, 17k, 1hr). International League opponents hit just .233.

On April 20 vs Norfolk, Majewski allowed a season-high 6 earned runs while retiring just 2 batters. His ERA at Louisville without appearance drops to 1.17. He didn't allow a run in 8 games after that April 20 appearance (8.1 innings).

Late last season Majewski was on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder, and he spent the early part of spring training strengthening that shoulder. He made 2 appearances for the Reds in spring training, on March 26 and March 28, then on March 29 was optioned to Louisville.

He last pitched for the Bats on Tuesday at Columbus (1.1ip, 2k).

Coffey went 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA in 26 relief appearances for the Reds. He is expected to report to Louisville tomorrow.

Thank God the Reds did something.....expecting different results while doing the same thing is the definition of what????? Insanity!
At least this is a baby step in the right direction.....If only Coffey could pitch as well as he sprints to the mound

This is great news! Coffey needed to go. Now maybe they can get Stanton gone (by any means) and I expect some trades are coming too. The ship has sailed for the season. Time to rebuild. Bad news on Bray's setback. I think until he's ready, they'll be stuck with Stanton, although the Old Lefthander, even with his high blood pressure and health issues might be a better LH pitcher than Stanton at this point.

Just like the song by JoJo.....

Too Little, Too Late

I cannot beleive I am going to drive from Columbus tomorrow night with gas at 3.49 a gallon to watch this supposed team play.

Maybe Coffey will go down to AAA and learn a few things. He has talent with a strong arm. I didn't like the extension when we gave it to him. Oh well, I'd feel alot better about this team if we could just get back to a respectful record and out of the cellar. We are better than we have been playing.

How did Alex Gonzalez react when he was benched in the eighth inning last night?

somebody please explain to me why people have to keep asking the same questions over and over, night after night, on the same blogs?

You are right that was a bad trade. This much we already know.

The trade sucked for both sides Kearns and Lopez are hitting sub .250 and Billy and Gary have been hurt. This season is over get the kids out of AAA and throw them in the deep end of the pool and see if they can swim. 2 words fire sale. Trade Griffey while he is hot and ship out Dunn the strike out machine too. Wait we would stink if we did that.....oh yeah we already do.

Seriously folks, let the trade go. Do you think this team would be any better with Kearns and Lopez when the two guys the Reds plugged into their spots are both far outperforming them.

Bray was great last year. They just need to get him healthy and he is a future star. And Majewski should be better now that he's healthy.

Krivsky made a smart move. It didn't get the Reds to the playoffs, but it was a smart move.

Now he just needs to make about 14 more and we've got us a .500 team.

Does anyone know Todd Coffey era for the month of May? I don't think the Reds do. He is 3.18!!!!
What a shame! You sent someone down just to do something.
Does anyone know how many hits per game redS are getting? 8.5 per game way below MLB AVERAGE.
