  • Reyes is Memphis bound

    The Anthony Reyes experiment — at least as a Cardinals reliever — is over for the moment. The Cardinals optioned Reyes, 26, to Class AAA Memphis before Sunday night’s game and recalled 24-year-old Mike Parisi from Memphis.

        LAA wants him badly. Perhaps they'll get a look down there and make a deal soon.

          There was a numbskull over at Bernie's who wanted Reyes to be the Cards closer.

          Good times.

            I have to believe the only reason they sent him to Memphis was to showcase his ability to start again. Let him throw four or five games and show he still has it (in AAA), and then pull the trigger on a deal.

              Pre-game transaction: Pitcher Anthony Reyes was sent to Class AAA Memphis before Sunday’s game, and pitcher Mike Parisi was recalled and issued uniform # 65. Parisi is at Busch Stadium for tonight’s game. But we’d be surprised to see him pitch. Joel Pineiro, who is scheduled to start Monday’s series-opener in Colorado, has been stricken with back spasms. If he can’t start, Parisi will get the assignment. Or if Pineiro has to leave the start early, Parisi is first in line to pitch long relief.

              What this means for Reyes: He’ll have a chance to start every five days. And that’s a good thing for Reyes and the Cardinals. He was fine in relief, but if he’s to have any trade value at all, it will be as a starter. And if Reyes can do what he normally does at Triple A Memphis — dominate hitters — the trade market for him will expand. A few teams already are interested, but they view Reyes as a starter, and want to see him do that before assessing his trade value. It’s hard for intrigued parties to scout Reyes when he’s appearing only occasionally in relief.

              When I ran this theory by a high-ranking Cardinals official — Reyes has a chance to showcase himself in Memphis – it wasn’t exactly shot down.

                  I didn't know Walters and Garcia got called up to Memphis. This is certainly interesting. I can't wait to see how those two do against a little stiffer competition.

                  When do we think we see them in St. Louis... I thought it would be '10? Might it be '09?

                    that means you get demoted too. Where do you want to go? Bernies or somewhere else?

                      He should have to change is signature to

                      "Failed 2008 Official Sponsor of Anthony Reyes."

                      If that doesn't work, he should blame all 2008 Cardinals woes, if any, on this decision. I did this for J-Rod in 2007, and it made me feel better about myself.

                          I have to admit that I'm not very thrilled about this. Mike Parisi????

                          As I've said before on this board, I don't think Reyes will ever be a top of the rotation starter, but he could potentially be a decent 3rd or 4th starter for a MLB club. It obviously won't be with the Cardinals, though.

                          I just hope in the future the Cards don't draft or try to develop non-sinker ball type pitchers if they're just going to be mis-used like Reyes was.

                            I think it's a case where Reyes' stuff just isn't good enough. Look at guys like Carpenter, or even a young Ankiel. Dunc let them live off their cutters and two-seamers, because they could get them down. Reyes' best fastball rises. But he doesn't throw it hard enough to get away with it. Duncan tried to preach the two-seamer, but I don't think his control is good enough to throw it consistently for outs.
