Gabe White had success here....now he's back -- let's see what happens.
It appears the FO is doing something to show they actually are trying for once....something we've been wanting for a long while
A couple of points I would like to make on this thread.
1. i am very pleased with this trade. white has always been an eexcellent pitcher here and has always been nails against lefties.
2. Sully would be a great pickup imo. He always struggles early , and after it warms up his "frisbees" are virtually impossible for righties to handle.
3. Leskanic imo would be a serious upgrade over Reith and or Norton. He seemed to be a reliable pitcher for the Brew Crew. I think Hume could work out the kinks.
4. I AM VERY HAPPY TO SEE THE REDS FINALLY MAKE A MOVE THAT AT LEAST SYMBOLIZES A MOVE TO HELP THESE VETS WIN. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS MOVE. THESE GUYS NEED TO FEEL LIKE MNGMT IS GOING TO HELP THEM.
