Reds & Nats, 2013 LCS. Take2 (9/13) Reds but no Nats
When the Reds signed Parra in the offseason, I thought it was a mediocre sign. I'm afraid I overestimated Parra. Recently I found something disturbing: of all qualifying pitchers since 1900, Parra has the highest career babip.
While babip tends to fluctuate due to luck and defense, the guys on the high and low end career-wise tend to belong where they are. And Parra's babip is historically bad.
To give this a little perspective, Glendon Rusch is tenth.
Not that I want to see Duke in a Reds uniform, but it's really hard to be worse than Parra.
Then again, he is 16th, so with luck thrown in, there isn't much difference.
No Victims, by me
The rest is drama.

The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
Oliver Perez is the M's closer right now
Francisco Liriano is pitching very well as a starter for the Pirates
Zach Duke? You never know.
