View Full Version : What's YOUR 2010 Reds Rotation/Bullpen
10-05-2009, 01:54 PM
We have a lineup thread, how about a pitching thread.
1. Homer (this is slightly bias as he is my favorite player, put him where you'd like)
5. Lehr/Maloney/... (undecided 5th spot)
MR - Owings
SU - Masset
CP - Cordero (he's gonna be here, might as well accept that)

2 to 1 says Harang starts opening day. Write it down.

Trade for or sign veteran middle reliever
Cordero will be traded
10-05-2009, 08:33 PM
Aaron Harang will be traded to the Diamondbacks for Stephen Drew and Eric Byrnes(even out the contracts)
Francisco Cordero to the Angels or Phillies for Salary Dump
My gut says if Harang is still with team, Dusty will maybe say " due to recovering" or something like that..he will hold Harang back a couple of days and BA will be OD starter with Bailey going in the 2 hole.
I was actually thinking the other day, it wouldnt surprise me if Harang went to Dusty and said BA deserves to be OD starter after his 09 season.

My prediction of the rotation:
Bronson Arroyo (Respect Dude!)
Homer Bailey/Johnny Cueto (better Spring)
Homer Bailey/Johnny Cueto
(Insert hot starting FA/Young guy here)
What I wish...
Johnny Cueto/Homer Bailey (better spring)
Johnny Cueto/Homer Bailey (mix up the hard tossers and the control/movement guys)
(whoever "wins" it)
Pen: Believe that Cordero gets traded for a decent return.
CL: Nick Masset
Daniel Ray Herrera
A "reclamation" project like Brandon Webb/Justin Ducherster With them being 1st option into the rotation when needed and a chance to win it outright in ST.
Bill Bray if still hurt open competition.

I'm thinking Homer could well have developed to be the hammer we all hoped for, due to the pitch he learned from Lehr.

1) Bronson Arroyo
2) Homer Bailey
3) Johnny Cueto
4) Randy Wolf
5) Justin Duchscherer

Mark Matt Maloney down as the final starter. All these designations about who is a #1 or #2 or #3 are meaningless. You need five starters and each one is the man on the day he takes the bump.

Immerse yourself in Bakermetrics. It will all make sense soon.
