Merged: Coffey gets creamed / Coffey needs a ticket to Louisville
Coffey was Todd-awful once again. He comes in with a man on and immediately gives up a bomb. He puts two more runners on via a walk and a hit batsman before being mercifully yanked. Turnabout was fair play as Gosling gives up a blast to the first batter he faces, which allowed the two runners he inherited from Todd to score. What has happened to Todd Coffey? One option is that he is sent to Louisville to work out whatever problems he has down in AAA. IMO, a better option is the let him take the rest of the year off. He has to be shell-shocked. The Reds should just tell him to go home for the rest of the season and forget about 2007.
