Interesting reaction. Of course, both message boards favor prospects and "could" s over "are"s. But the Braves fans don't seem too happy, do they?
Also, think of it this way. The Braves fans are used to having good pitching and pitching prospects for most of the past 25 years, so they regard their own guys as good and other teams' guys as suspect.
We, being Reds fans, and used to having mediocre/iffy/terrible pitching and pitching prospects for most of the past 25 years, are going to view things in reverse. Our guys are suspects and other teams' guys are good.
Although comparing Reitsma to Kevin Gryboski? Harsh, indeed. Plus, it takes until the second page for someone to mention the changeup. You gotta see it, then you believe. Anyway, they are right in some ways- Chris doesn't strike very many out and he's not a consistent starter. Although he hasn't hit his age peak yet.
