Burton gave up a Walk followed by a Homerun in his inning of work tonight....all after striking out the first 2 batters.

He's not ready yet.

with the bullpen problems being a constant, the change (for the worse) lately has been the offense. it really doesn't matter what hte bullpen gives up, because at last glance this lineup wasn't 'stacked' by any means.

stubbs was safe on that one. dusty SHOULD have gotten himself thrown out there, becuase this team lacks a pulse otherwise.

Reds should have one run back right now.

Jocketty claims they haven't even considered Weathers. After tonights performance he might need to get out his cellular telephone and ring the weathers residence.

Dusty got his five pitchers in, so it was a good day for the Reds' manager.

Del Rosario has the making of being a good reliever, much rather see him than masset quite frankly.

COM2010
06-08-2010, 10:46 PM
they may just send Masset down anyway after tonight's debacle. maybe they should just go for some extra pop off the bench. Shorten the bullpen. Eliminate the pitcher slot in the lineup. :D

dusty conceded the game when he took rhodes out and put massett in. ridiculous. this bullpen is terrible

Well he gets blasted for over using Rhodes, blasted for bringing him into a 1 run games, blasted for taking him out after 2 hitter.

Dusty is playing poker and the other players know exactly what he has in his hand. He cannot win right now, no matter the combination.

If the front office is serious about this season, they will bring up Maloney, Wood, Chapman, etc. and put THEM in the bull pen. The FUTURE IS NOW. They have the rest of their careers to be converted back to starters.

Masset is not the kinda arm you release. He was just dominant last season, you have to hope he gets it figured out. If anyone else would step up, Herrera, Lincoln, Ondrusek, Del Rosario, or Fisher to this point, Masset would be down near the bottom of the totem pole.

Maybe Bailey would succeed in a Joba type role for the time being.

yeah, it really puts the pressure on our staff. Sam had no problem. Rhodes was solid. The rest is a roll of the die, we are going to have to find another reliable arm if we're going to contend, looking at the big picture.

I would make a case that Cueto is pitching better than he did last year. He has been much more consistent this year. Pitching more innings and becoming more pitch efficent. Numbers wise he may not be better.

What does last year have to do with anything? He was pitching games when the reds were 20 games out of 1st place. Some guys can't pitch under pressure. He is like throwing gas on a fire. Walk, Walk....BOOM!!

And, because the others weren't very good, Baker overused Masset (at Mid-May, both Masset and Cordero were tied at 4th in the NL in appearances). Don't know what it is now.

I'm saying the pitching coach hasn't had anything to do with Rhodes being better, that nobody else has improved, and that guys like Masset and Bailey have really regressed. For all the grief Pole got around here I'm not seeing any improvement.

That would be nothing but a mistake. Yes, he has been awful this year. But he was incredible last year and a true shutdown pitcher in the late innings. You give him plenty of time to get things back on track.

But that doesn't include continuing to bring him in for close games. At this point he becomes the 11th/12th guy on the staff. If you can work out a phantom DL trip and a month long rehab assignment in the minors, fantastic. But you don't release him.

It just seems like the entire dang bulllpen is the 11th/12th guy on the staff. I don't know that the line could go any further back, they're already standing against the wall. Why isn't he already on the DL with a phantom injury? I do agree with you that they should not release him.

These games against St. Louis and the Giants should be very eye opening for the Reds. As much as some people want this to be a 90 win team they simply aren't good enough, and simply don't have good enough players to be that.

Earlier this year most people thought this was a 75-85 win team depending on how things broke.

I still they they split in the middle of those predictions and win 80. They simply don't have the talent to be better.

That is a problem. They are all pitching like 12th men, but I think Masset is the highest profile blow up of all of them. He's clearly got talent in the arm, but is all kinds of broken in the head right now.

I would say pitch Del Rosario a little more, he's looked good. Perhaps Micah Owings. But a move to add an arm clearly needs to be made and soon.

I was sitting there thinking that if Gomes and Hernandez were able to get on, that the ONLY person walking to the plate should be Micah. This offense needs a jumpstart. He could do that while mopping up innings.

And that won't happen because of the whole "do we spend more money" versus "which of the guys coming off the DL can we stick in the pen?" thing. Mark my words, NONE of those pitchers coming off the DL (or rehabbing) will jump back into the rotation. I'll eat crow if they do. The rotation is FAR from being the problem of this team, and I never though I'd see the day when I'd think that (after the last decade). :D

I think it would be a bit early to send Bailey to the pen, but yeah, Volquez will likely spend any part of 2010 that he spends pitching in the bullpen. He could be a shot in the arm, but I don't think it would be quite enough. I think at least one arm if not two needs to be added, to push some of the lesser arms off the roster (Looking at Ondrusek and Herrera.) Not to mention a turnaround from Cordero and Masset.
