Guardado on assignment, upcoming probables

From the Reds....

The Reds today sent LHP Eddie Guardado (left elbow, low back) on a rehabilitation assignment to Class AAA Louisville...he is scheduled to pitch 1.0 inning tonight vs Durham.

Also, according to the gamenotes, the probable starters for the upcoming Nationals Series are as follows:

Tuesday - Reds RH Kyle Lohse vs. Nationals LH Matt Chico
Wednesday - Reds RH Bronson Arroyo vs. Nationals LH John Lannan
Thursday - Reds RH Aaron Harang vs. Nationals LH Mike Bacsik

Where is Bobby Livingston in the probables? He should be after Lohse........

I assume that means that Kyle Lohse won't be traded...or are the Reds just trying to keep us in suspense?

So who is really going to pitch for us on Tuesday? I mean since Lohse will be moved most likely that very day.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the Reds have acquired Jorge Cantu from the Rays, possibly for Brian Shackelford and Calvin Medlock. Interesting. Cantu isn't going to be an option at second base for the Reds and shouldn't be in line for playing time at first, given that Joey Votto is in line to eventually replace Scott Hatteberg. He could be used at third base if Edwin Encarnacion is dealt for pitching. It's also possible he'll be tried in the outfield. The Reds could have a need there with Adam Dunn potentially getting moved and Ken Griffey Jr. always a DL candidate.

Here's hoping Lohse is gone by Tuesday. Heck, I'd trade him for a bag of Grippo's and a cool beverage to be named and consumed later, like the moment after the trade is announced. Homer Bailey has been awful since he was demoted, but he was apparently injured, and his last time out he only gave up 2 earned runs. He's never boring and he's only 21. We've gotta turn the page on Krivsky's Twin(s) mistakes (picking up Joe Mays and Kyle Lohse). If Lohse was traded, and Belisle, Coffey and Stanton were designated for assignment, the future would look so much brighter, I might need shades.
