He did however give up four runs in five ininngs in his Louisville debut. I really like what Sanots and Saarloos have given as to start the year. I like how Narron is using them and when he is using them. Now with all that said what happens when Majewski and Bray are ready. I say we swing a deal for Cormeir if we can and Bray replaces him and then we do the same thing with Burton. Give Oakland some kind of compensation and we keep him. Send him to Triple A for some seasoning. Harang, Arroyo, Loshe, Belisle, & Livingston in the rotation. Saarloos, Santos, Majewski, Weathers, Stanton, Bray, & Coffey in the pen. Closer by commitee until Evereyday Eddie is back. I like what I've seen from Stanton, Weathers, & Saarloos so far. Theirs no guarantee Eddie comes back. I think down the road Burton has the stuff to close and not to mention Bailey comes up at some point if Livingston struggles. He's a better option now than Milton. Let's hope the bullepen continues what they are doing. The offense will be their. Love what our 1B platoon is doing so far. GO REDS!!!
It would be a shame to have to send Coutlangus down for Eric Milton. Cout looked good in todays game, and I really think he's ready to contribute at the Major league level. I'm afraid (and I hope I'm wrong, believe me!) that sending Milton out there tomorrow is just throwing in the towel for an automatic loss. The Reds have been so good in the spring and so far in the regular season, that losing feels intolerable. Why not skip Milton and let Arroyo pitch in his regular spot. He has had four days rest. Keep the winning going while we can!
