Re: Why is Partch on the roster? Suns held a closest to the pin contest before the game (pitching wedge from home, land at 2b) and he won so I suspect he's a golfer. But he came in and pitched later and I can see why Reds are giving him every chance. He's a big solid guy with a smooth powerful delivery. He just LOOKS like he should be good. They looked like they've moved him from starter to reliever so maybe that will make a difference.
Partch has even said that he is more comfortable as a reliever. I have gotten a report that he has been as high as 97 on the team gun this season out of the bullpen. He certainly has the arm to be good.
I too noticed the 'stache on Lotzkar and just shook my head.
