    Hoover

    Anyone wish the Reds had sent him down and kept Arredondo, instead?

    I know he's had a lot of success in the minors, and had very good numbers with the Reds last year (and in ST).

    But just watching him I can't exactly see how he does it. We've all heard that he hides the ball well and so he looks faster than 91/92. OK. But then I wonder if he really has a secondary out pitch.

    And I think that talk about him being a future closer was always a reach.

    Thoughts?

    I think he'll be fine. A couple of bad games early will keep his stats from looking good until later in the year, but I'm not writing it off just yet. He was obviously great in the Spring, but even in his time with the big boys last year he impressed a lot of people.

    It seems like he has a good breaking ball.

    No. Saw all I wanted to see from JA last year. Hoover should be fine over the long haul. These were good teams, good lineups.

    I think when he gets a couple days off, he'll be back on the horse again.

    My thought is that you are making assessments based on small sample sizes.

    I think Hoover will be fine with proper rest. He's simply been overworked.

    I remember Simon looked bad his first few outings last year and look what he did over the course of the season.

    With Marshall not ready, Dusty had to use him more than he wanted to.

    Hoover will be alright.
