This guy shouldn't even have a job for one thing, but why is he put into close ballgames blows my mine.

Whip BAA ERA
1.59 .352 6.75

This guy needs to be on the next bus to Springfield.

I'm holding Narron accountable. He's got to be out of his freakin' mind to send White out there in a close game. I've just about lost all my respect for him.

You can't keep sending out your 2 or 3 most reliable relievers out there everyday, they'll be fried by August and September. You have to rely on your entire bullpen at times and that includes White. I can't blame Narron at all.

That being said, White needs to be sent packing. I'm just not sure there is a better option currently in the organization. Krivsky needs to work out a trade or something.

Wagner has to be a better option than White

Wagner can't even get minor league hitters out.

Anyone has to be better than White. Outside of maybe Mike Burns.

Wow, those numbers are sad. Wayne has to do something ASAP.

How does White still have a job?

By trying to throw more 90 mph sinkers and 80-ish mph curve balls instead of the old 94 mph line drives.

Don't know if it will save him, but I think he knew that his old straight fast ball was going to land him in the unemployment line.

Rick White needs to go NOW. After giving up the two run homer tonight, his ERA is 7.25, and his BAA is .348.

BEFORE tonight's fiasco, his stats the last 30 days are:
9 games, 8 ip, 7 k, 16 hits, 10 Earned runs, 11.25 ERA, and 2.25 Whip.

Yan is also not the answer, but we need to ditch White....

Looking to Louisville, why not try Brad Salmon? In 7 appearances spanning 11 innings, has a 1.64 ERA, 5 hits, 14 k, and 3 BB. Also did well at Chatanooga to start the year. At least he might get some experience, and his novelty might work better than White being such a known (bad) quantity.

Anyone think Tom Shearn might be worth a shot?

Krivs has been quick to get rid of guys who arent performing which is what I love about his tenure so far. I have no idea why he hasnt replaced White..he has no business on this team.

How about giving Germano a shot to be the long man when Belisle gets back, and making Belisle your 6th and 7th inning guy? If he struggles, send him back down, before you "Reith" him.

As much as I'm not a big fan of Germano, I'm to the point now where I would support a decision like this.

Well, Germano hasn't even gotten into a game yet (has he? maybe I forgot), and we've been getting at least 5 out of our starters, so the long man isn't as crucial on this team as it has been in years past. But yes, I think it couldn't hurt. Belisle/Germano can't be worse than White. White has good pop on his fastball, but he just can't PITCH. He can THROW, but he can't PITCH.

White's about gone. I would bring up Shafer, might catch lightening in a bottle.

I see it as a situation that the Red's Can't lose go snag some grizzled minor League vets and try them cuz White is cooked. Its statement time again and he needs to get his walking papers.

I think Standridge was just named Minor League pitcher of the week or something like that. Unscored upon in his last 10-12 outings....he deserves to have the spot occupied by White

I keep hearing the Angry Guys saying that White has a contract where he can't be traded or sent down before June 15th. Hopefully 9 more days of this slop and hopefully his butt is glued to the bullpen bench until then.

I wonder if White put that into the contract because he knew he was going to suck arse this year?? :devil:

Couldn't White be released? Nobody is going to want to trade for him and I see no reason why he should be send to AAA. Let him go!

The angry guys this morning were saying that there is some sort of clause in White's contract that he can't be traded or released until June 15. The "can't be released" part sounds very strange to me, but maybe it somehow plays into White's continued presence.

The article on last night's game on mlb.com said Germano was sent down and Mays called up. Why couldn't it have been White? Perhaps he has some of Narron's family held hostage? (Just kidding, I think.)

He needs to tighten it up a little bit first. From today's Enquirer: (http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060606/SPT04/606060379/1071)

Left-handed pitcher Phil Dumatrait was promoted to Louisville and, in his first start with the Bats on Monday, allowed five earned runs on 12 hits over 4 2/3 innings in an 8-2 loss against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
