I'd suggest going the nights Homer is pitching, then.

I think he'll have the best season as a starter while going deeper into games than Chapman giving him a better chance at wins.

Though Chapman may leave with a lot of 3-run leads and end up getting wins that way.

You can pencil Arroyo in for 15 wins. Somehow he just manages to get them.

Okay, I had to find SOMETHING we agree on. :eek:

I think 1/2 of Harang's problem is that he's facing opposing teams' #1 Starting pitchers. That's why he has been having the worst "run support" track record in Reds history the last 2-3 seasons. How many 2-1, 3-2 games did he lose?
Our lineup has been horribly inept offensively - and especiallly against top-notch starters. Hopefully that will change a bit with better guys at the top of the lineup, Rolen added to the middle, Bruce "getting it", etc...

Arroyo always seems to be the recipient of offensive support - even when he's off - he gives up 4 we score 5, he gives up 5, we score 6.
The last half of the season though, he put up like 90% "Quality Starts" though, where he went 6+ innings with 3 or less runs, can't take that away from him. BUT, even when Harang does that, he still loses.

Bailey will probably be pitching in the #4 spot, so that combination of opposing SP's and his stuff this year points to a big year for him win-wise.
IF I was drafting a Fantasy Team, he would be a sneaky pick for me!

PEACE

I may try and bring my dog to the "bark in the park" although the more I think about it there's potential for disaster written all over it........

I'd love to bring our dogs. One would be great but the other would be a giant pain in the butt and we don't want to separate them for that long.

I'm looking forward to the bobblehead nights, but yeah, I'd give up all the SGA's for some wins!

Overall I am very disappointed in the Reds promo nights. There is little to no originality at all. The giveaways are the same tired ones as with previous years. Given the history of this franchise and such I would love to see some new and interesting giveaways.

How about:

Stadium replica night and give away replicas of old Crosley or maybe the minor league parks of the reds

How about doing minitures of the replicas that are at the entreance. They have done Joe, but what about finishing the set?

How about a WS giveaway, do something around all the teams that won the WS?

those are huge events and done by a large number of baseball teams and I don't think I have heard of any issues at any of them.

Guess who's the featured player on Rotoworld's Fantasy "Sleeper" article today?

Yep. Homer Bailey.

As far as Harang. You can almost guarantee that when he would pitch the last couple of years, the Offense would get lazy or the opposing pitcher would pitch lights out. It's like both our Offense knows that our Ace is going so, they try to hard to get just a run or two instead of swinging loosely and getting 4 or 5 runs. Also, the opposing pitcher and the other team's defense knows they are going against our ACE and they all raise their game.

And, then there's also Harang's propensity to give up the extra-base hit on a regular basis, thinking he can get a pitch by someone that he's just not going to get that pitch by him. While Harang has not been given the support for the reasons I mentioned, he's also the victim of his own poor judgement when it comes to pitching. Hopefully, with a full season of improved Defense on all fronts, the extra-base hits will be outs and singles instead of Doubles and Triples. The Homeruns will still happen.
