Okay,

So Stanton and Coffey contributed 2 runs to Arroyo's line the other night, but all the same, the Reds relievers have a 0.00 ERA thorugh 4 games. Most of it has been somewhat impressive. You never know...

If they can avoid overexposing the bullpen by acquiring just one more starter, then we might be golden.

OK, who are you? And what have you done with our FCB? We're not paying any ransom. :mooner:

And while it is very early, I tend to agree with you. Todd Coffey, Mike Stanton and Kirk Saarloos pitched very well, though Coffey still kinda scares me. He got away with some pitches I thought.

Belisle did a real good job while primarily relying on his fastball (94) and slider all night.

And the good news is we get Milton back, who could start on Sunday. :eek:

It's time Milton "walked into a door."

Agreed. I feel the exact same way about both my teams, actually. I think the Yankees' bullpen is a lot more solid than people are giving it credit for.

I'm not sure I'm ready to say this bullpen is solid; I don't think we have the faintest notion of what we have in Coutlangus and Burton; Cormier and Stanton are likely not very good; and Santos is still a roll of the dice. Coffey and Saarloos will likely help quite a bit, but it's still an awfully mixed bag.

After 5 games of play...
* 13 IP, 0ER, 4H, 13K, 5BB.
>> 0.69 WHIP, 0.00 ERA.

Last 3 games...
* 9 IP, 0ER, 1H, 11K, 1BB.
>> 0.22 WHIP, 0.00 ERA.

Are you kidding me? :)

I have a hunch they won't be 0.00 all year long :p:

It's a LOT stronger so far than I thought it would be. Then again, I had Saarloos penciled into the rotation, not becoming a rather nasty set-up man in the 8th inning. I am liking him deep in that bullpen. It's making a difference...

The only inning I got to see today (at parents house) was the 8th when Coffey was on the mound. He comes in, promptly gives up a solo homer, throws the ball into the outfield on a routine play (fortunatley Philips did his job backing up the play and kept the runner at 1B) and then hit the next pitcher.

I'm generally a fan of Coffey, and today's weather is horrable but yikes.

Is it a confidence issue? Tired from pitching 3 days in a row in crappy weather? Just not broke into the season yet?

He's a good pitcher, and in no way am I suggesting he should be traded or anything of the sort, but he just seems to be so close to "putting it all together" yet so far from actually "putting it all together". This isn't an "oh my God we suck" post, just wondering out loud why Todd seems to struggle yet has a ton of tallent and skill.

Ah, the good ol' days of the bullpen having a 0.00 ERA . . . At least people were talking about robot insurance back then, too.

Who could have predicted that Pete Mackanin was the missing piece of the puzzle that would fix the Reds' bullpen? :thumbup: ;)
