Yippie, we aren't last!:rolleyes:

27. Cincinnati Reds: Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, Dave Williams, Eric Milton, Brandon Claussen

No. 1 starter Aaron Harang turned in a record of 11-13 last season despite a strong 3.83 ERA. He strikes out nearly seven hitters per nine innings pitched and limits walks, lining him up for what could be a breakout year. Bronson Arroyo recently joined the Reds in exchange for Wily Mo Pena. Arroyo's history in Boston (4.92 home ERA in 2005) suggests he'll struggle somewhat in Cincinnati. He doesn't possess great strikeout potential and his opponents hit him well. Dave Williams takes the third slot in the rotation and pitched reasonably well for the Reds last year. :rolleyes: He went 10-11 with an ERA of 4.41 (killed by a 6.68 home ERA). Williams possesses an inferior BB/K ratio that limits his upside. Eric Milton was atrocious in his first season in Cincinnati, registering a record of 8-15 with an ERA of 6.47, allowing 40 home runs in 186 innings pitched. Brandon Claussen starts in the fifth slot coming off of a respectable 10-11, 4.21 ERA season a year ago. Veteran Paul Wilson is ready to pick up for anyone who falters and to log innings in long relief.

Someone needs to get their facts strait. Williams pitched well for the Reds last year?

You bet someone needs to get their facts straight. There's NO WAY we're as good as #27! :evil:

Aaron Harang pitched much better than his record reflects... blame that on the defense and the bullpen.

RH Aaron Harang
RH Bronson Arroyo
LH Brandon Claussen
LH Eric Milton
LH Dave Williams

How bad would this have been before the Pena/Arroyo trade?
