You can't put EE out there every day and let him continue to struggle like that. He is costing the team runs and therefore wins. This team can still turn it around this season but if you keep him out there he will drag the team down with him. At some point his teammates are going to start saying " Damn, how hard is it to throw a ball from 3rd to 1st? " and things like that. This just might be the time for the Reds to trade him for some good young bullpen arms. The Reds need relief help and EE needs a new start. It won't be easy for some Reds fans to swallow but it ultimately might be what's best for the team.
