Postponed.  As you probably have already read, Klinker was scheduled to pitch, hence the rain!

  1. At what point do we start aggressively pointing out that Dickerson could replace Patterson and do better?

  2. Have the Reds given any thought to sending Bailey back to single A and restarting his development like the Rangers did with Volquez last year. Something is clearly wrong with his mechanics and they need to bring in an outside consultant that bailey will listen to.

  3. Is it time to give up on Belisle yet? He’s stinking up AAA worse than he stunk up the majors!
