Harang on bereavement

From the Reds:

TODAY'S TRANSACTIONS: Today the Reds placed on the bereavement list RHP Aaron Harang, who has left the team for San Diego following the death of his grandfather, Dusty Harang...taking his spot on the roster will be RHP Ricky Stone, whose contract was purchased from Class AAA Louisville...Stone will fill the 40-man roster spot vacated by LHP Eric Milton ("Tommy John" surgery on 6/15), who was transfered to the 60-day disabled list...Stone made 3 apps for the Reds from 6/29-7/4 (0-0, 8.10, 3.1ip, 4h, 3er, 0bb, 2k, 3hr) and has spent most of the season with the Bats (41g, 4-4-9, 1.62, 44.1ip, 31h, 9r, 8er, 7bb, 30k, 3hr, .196oba).

KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK: In yesterday's 15-inning, 5-4 win at Atl, Reds pitchers recorded 19 strikeouts (Harang 8, Coutlangus 1, Stanton 3, Saarloos 2, Gosling 5)...was their highest total since 10/1/78 vs Atl, when 4 Reds pitchers produced 19 strikeouts in a 14-inning, 10-8 victory at Riverfront Stadium (Tom Seaver 11, Manny Sarmiento 4, Mario Soto 3, Dan Dumoulin 1)...courtesy Elias Sports Bureau.

Are you able to explain why they picked Stone. I certainly like an extra reliever after yesterday's 15 innings. Stone already proved himself ineffective. I think I'd give Majewski a shot. He's been pretty good the last two weeks.

Majewski or Bill Bray. I'm not sure. Probably because they want to have someone who can go three innings tonight. And Majewksi and Bray have only gone an inning.

Harang won't miss a start for this, will he?

Any word on A-Gon?

Any word on Gonzalez?

Do you think Dumatrait will get a shot with the Big League Club this season? I'd imagine he would at least get a call up if the Reds are able to unload Lohse before the trade deadline.

Sorry to hear about Harang's grandfather.

Why would anyone think Ricky Stone could last three innings?

at 3:22 PM Blogger John Fay said...

Gonzalez is not here in Miami. Harang is still listed at Monday's starter.

at 3:24 PM Blogger John Fay said...

Stone will pitch as long as they want him to, which is nice if it's a 11-1 game and the starter gets knocked out in the fourth.

John, just came from the grocery store. The latest edition of the National Enquirer in the checkout lines is reporting Ricky Stone and Chad Moeller have incriminating video of Wayne Krivsky.

Also, the Cardinals are actually operated by aliens.

Can you confirm or deny?

Definitely would like to see Majewski or Bray up but I think Stone deserves another chance too. Lord knows that all the other relievers have been given more than 1 shot this year, plus you got to respect the fact that Stone has worked his butt off to get back to the majors. Last year he was running a drywall business.

Why would anyone want to see Majewski pitch for the Reds again? Haven't you guys had enough?

at 8:00 PM Blogger John Fay said...

So what you are you going to do, Justin? Release him?
