Maybe you are correct, but when I look at Lohse I still so much potential. He has flashes of brilliance, and maybe if I were an arrogant GM or pitching coach, I would think that I would be the missing component from his success. I would think that I could fix him. Either way, the Reds can possibly get a solid prospect for him now, if he tanks his next five starts, that won't be the case.
