Venafro gone

This move confuses me too. Unless Venafro asked to be released, which I believe is possible after the trade the Reds just made, he might not see much of a future with this team. Venafro pitched in 36 games with a 2.45 ERA. He had 2 saves in 22 IP allowing 19 hits, 6 ER, 8 BB and 18 K. Not to shabby. Better than Standridge. I guess he is a 40 man casualty, but I could make an argument for removing Burns from the 40 man and adding Venafro. He's a lefty. He's a younger, cheaper version of Mercker. Goodbye Mike.
