Crabbe did some very nice things last year and was high on a lot of prospect lists among starters in the Reds' system. His Pensacola ERA is not terrible at 4.04, but there are certainly signs of struggling. Of course, they say that AA is a tough level to master.
The Wahoos trail 3-0 after three.
Alll levels are tough to master if you cannot throw strikes. I think Abner Doubleday said that first.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
