I think I heard during yesterday's broadcast that the only Reds Opening Day starting pitcher since 1997 that's still active (besides Harang) is Brett Tomko. I think that was the right time frame. Regardless, that just shows you how pathetic the Reds pitching has been the last 10 years. Ten years. 2 starting pitchers still actively pitching.
