Re: Minor transactions
Shearn was the one pitcher who did well when he was called up. I believe he had 4 quality starts (out of 6 starts) against teams fighting for playoffs in playoff environments.
What pitchers, currently on the 40-man, fix the pitching problems? Besides Harang, Arroyo, Weathers, and Burton every pitcher called up failed pretty miserably last year. Please let me know who you want to see make the team out of spring. Shearn would make a perfect long man/spot starter, where Sarloos, Gosling, and Santos failed last year.
I can see why the Reds haven't had a winning season in over ten years.
