Listening to Marty and Hal just now on the radio. They both speculated that when LaRue returns to the Reds, Womack will be released.
* Krivsky claims they will carry 3 catchers when LaRue returns.
* Phillips has been starting at 2B vs. righthanders, and word is that the team is impressed with him.
* (inferred, but:) Freel is a right-handed version of Womack, except that he's better.
Update: or, perhaps not. Via Red Hot Mama, Griffey has been placed on the disabled list (it is still not thought to be serious, and is improving, but...). LaRue is expected to be promoted to the big league team before tomorrow's game. Womack lives on!
