I guess I find it funny that one of the reasons the Reds sent Edwin down was to work on a his defense (it seemed mainly to be with his defense because, after all, he almost single-handedly lost the game that he was sent down after), that they brought him back up after making 3 errors in 11 games.

Any way you could shed any light on the context of the errors he made in Triple A? Just seems like more of the same. I know we need a right handed bat, but he lost a game with his glove, not his bat.

On another note, on the blog yesterday, I noticed that another reader asked why they were working Votto out in the outfield in Louisville. Is this true? I certainly hope not, with the surplus of good young outfielders we have (not to mention those already on the major league club). We have two older veterans at first, and Votto was our future there, as far as we've been told.

Thanks for the answers.

I'm not sure what the errors actually were that Edwin made in Louisville but if I'm not mistaken he made 2 in the first game he had with them. If that's the case then 1 error in the last 10 may actually be an improvement for him. I think our largest deficiency is in the team leader dept. We certainly do miss Sean Casey don't we? Man what a trade that was for us. Makes the Kearns trade look pretty good doesn't it?
