View Full Version : Congratulations, Arthur Rhodes

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Rhodes' 33-appearance scoreless streak ties a Major League single-season record shared by Mark Guthrie and Mike Myers. 1 more scoreless inning, and Rhodes will be in sole possession of the record.
Rhodes is clearly the oldest guy to ever do it at 40. His dazzling .28 season ERA is unthinkable nearing July. In my opinion, he's been the best reliever in the game this season. It would be a shame if he does not make the All Star team.

FIFY. Ubaldo don't got nothing on Arthur.

33 innings pitched of 1 run ball. Wowsers.

That is extremely impressive. Go Sir Arthur! :thumbup:

Middle relievers/set-up men usually don't get much AS consideration, but Arthur is a no brainer this year. I hate that they keep expanding the rosters, but it might help Rhodes.... he has been ridiculous.

As much as I hate the Cardinals...this is classy.

That's three and a half shutouts. :)

Congrats Arthur! Here's to hoping the streak continues for a long time.

April 10th. No runs allowed by Rhodes since April 10th. That's just crazy

Rhodes has done a great job and deserves a lot of credit and all the positives.

From Rob Neyer:
Reds: Arthur Rhodes
Yes, another reliever. So sue us. If Tim Wakefield can get an All-Star nod (last year) for being an effective 42-year-old knuckleballer, why can't Rhodes get some love as a 40-year-old lights-out reliever with a 0.28 ERA. I'm not usually a big fan of Lifetime Achievement Awards, but he's got a 1.79 ERA over these past three seasons, and what's wrong with having somebody in the bullpen to face those tough American League lefties like Justin Morneau, Robinson Cano or Josh Hamilton.

Article on Rhodes from the Cincinnati Enquirer. I didn't know Arthur's son passed away. That's the first I've heard of that.
When he walks in from the bullpen and takes the mound, the first act comes not from his arm, but his heart. Somewhere in the dirt, he will scratch JR -- the initials of the little boy he lost to illness two years ago, four days before Christmas.
How does a father ever get over something like that?
“I don’t get over it,” Arthur Rhodes said. “He’s right behind the rubber when I’m pitching.”
