All have excelled outside the REDS, what does Gullett and Hume do to these guys.
Ryan never really got a chance with us and he had some success in the minors so saying the Reds were to blame for him not having success in Cincy is ludicrous since he only pitched in like two games for us.
Then are you referring to Denyes Reyes? If so he had his most success for his. He had a couple of good years with us.
Bruce Chen? There was about 50 other teams that also couldn't figure him ot, including the Braves.
And Mercker? He has had pretty decent success with us through the years.
I am in no way defending our pitching coaches but sayiny your examples are not really reflecting their ineptitude.
