At any rate, 3-0 heading to the Reds half of the fourth.
I'm merely pointing out that Claussen's ceiling is as a #3 pitcher. He's never been anything but and will never be anything more. Yet here he is, the best starter on the Reds now that Harang's shelved. So right now the Reds' rotation is a #3 and 4 sub-#5 pitchers.
