I can put in for him but the request only lasts 1 week. And it goes to the person who put in the request first. Should I wait? Should I put it in NOW? Damn I wnat to get this guy but don't want to pull the trigger too soon. June 1st is still two weeks away. Why June 1st.
May 9th is the date I thought for abritration. Plus he was up last year.


You're on borrowed time already now that Dusty said he'll be up soon. If the owners in your league are anything like me they were waiting for the slightest hint of a JB call up. That time is now.

Well, Dusty said "soon", and it appears Dunn and/or Griffey are on their way out sooner than later. Since there's all of this talk circulating about Bruce right now I think you'd be foolish to wait to pick him up if you have a roster spot to spare.

edit- and whaddya know, there's Mr. Bruce himself on the front page of Yahoo.

Just wondering but where did you hear that Bailey will be called up Thursday? I haven't seen anything like that. I doubt they call Bruce up if they bring Bailey up. That would mean they would have to have two players they would send down or release. I don't have that much knowledge regarding Cincy but most teams don't have 2 guys to send down.

Totally unsubstantiated, I read in someone's post on Bailey that on the next day Belilse is set to start the SP is listed as "TBA", which suggests a change could be on the wind.

I just saw on RotoTimes that Bailey is on their Probable List for Thursday. Interesting.

Patterson's 4/5 night delays Bruce's callup for a week at least. :-t
