Re: Reds should promote two starting pitchers and more
Why give up on Belisle now? He is in his first year as a starter and very easily could be 10-6 if the bullpen could hold his leads. I think he has shown enough to give him a shot. Have you looked around the league to see what passes for fifth starters these days? I like Elizardo Ramirez as well. This is another guy I would not give up on. Fans today are so incredibly impatient, guys take time to turn into what they will ulitimately be. I would trade Loshe, that was a horrible trade to begin with, and take a look at Livingston and or Dumatrait. What can it hurt? I would not send Bailey down yet, but I am a little concerned that he is not throwing nearly as hard as he used to. I have not seen him hit 98 since he came up. Is anyone else wondering if there is some reason why he is not throwing as hard as he was last year?
