I think I'll bump this up. It's an interesting article and the Reds would have had a different season last year with a better bullpen. There were times they were inducing heart attacks all around Redsland. This quote jumped out at me, fairly basic stuff
“A good bullpen makes your starters better,” Minaya said. “Your starters have a different feeling knowing the bullpen is there.”
Many questions remain for our pen, both young and old. But with the rotation we have, we must have a decent pen to compete. We cannot afford to blow Quality Starts this year.
