Over Sullivan's last 131 innings (all of last year, and this year to date) he has an ERA of 5.02
He's thrown over 650 innings since the beginning of the 97 season, which is a ton for a middle reliever.
Risk vs Cost.
Here is the thing I guess that kind of bugs me about these numbers and the complaints about Sullivan. He was hit hard with the ball that caused an injury, yet continued to pitch even though he was hurt. He made adjustments, that created other problems for himself. He eventually had to give in to is injuries. The guy gives it his all. Could he be through, perhaps. I like what I saw recently out of him. This could be really something if he comes back at a cheaper salary.
That being said, I still want to see what Hummel is like.

The last I saw is that Hummel will be with the Reds organization on Tuesday.
