When and if Reds still have the relievers in 2 years and Lopez ain't playing short will the above still apply?
BTW are we missing Kearns yet?
Is Majewski helping us yet?
If someone gets smart and moves Lopez to 2B, how does his .780 OPS look then?
Granted, Bray has a decent pedigree and should be a very good reliever in the next few years. That doesn't mean he and Majourneymanski were worth Kearns and Lopez, no matter how many ways people try to spin it.
Sorry for hijacking the thread, BTW. It's supposed to be about pitch counts. I'm actually pretty surprised that the Reds have worked the count so well after losing Lopez and Kearns, but after watching Juan Castro hack at an eye-high 1-1 fastball yesterday, I don't think it will last.
