My response to that is that White threw 30 pitches yesterday. Through the first inning he pitched, he was LIGHTS OUT. He threw 11 pitches in the first inning and was completely in control. However, in the second inning he pitched, he tired quickly (which he has been known to do, plus the fact he's in his late 30's) and gave up the home run which fell about 13 rows below where I was sitting. If we can use him in single inning outings, I think he will do well. Plus, I think he has more incentive because he's so close to his hometown (and mine in Springfield, Ohio...in fact, he's building a house about a half mile away from where my mom lives). Give him some time and one-inning stretches. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Go Reds!
