I think the Reds are wise to give him a shot.
I understand the frustration, but people are overreacting a bit about this. It's a game in April. These are the times you figure these things out. Almost never is a team fortunate enough to have everything decided in terms of personnel immediately to begin a season. Even when you do, injuries quickly change those plans.
I guess. Like I said, I understand the argument and I'm not totally against it.
It's the old saw that a project slips one day at a time. It was a game where winning was in the balance but there were other agendas at play besides winning this game. It was an L that didn't necessarily have to be an L and its one you can't get back. Sure its April and there is time to make it up, but I really don't like that argument. Do everything you can to win the ones you have a shot at because too many happen where you don't have that shot.
