    Re: Reynolds slated to start on Wednesday

    Folks, I'm pretty sure this is what the Reds have in mind.

    A - At the end of Tuesday's play, if the Reds are still in the hunt to win the division Latos will pitch Wednesday. If they are two games back or closer than that, it will be Latos.

    B - At the end of Tuesday's play, if the Reds are no longer reasonably in the hunt for the Division - if they are three or more back -- they may use Reynolds and save Latos for the Pirates series and try and line up their best guys against the Bucs.

    I don't agree with this philosophy, I would pitch Latos Wednesday in any event. But this is what I think they have in mind.

    This Reds management group holds their cards very close to their vest. I'd put no stock in the fact that Reynolds is listed as the starter. That's not to say he won't pitch (though I doubt he does), only to say that the decision either hasn't yet been made or has been made and is being kept quiet.

    Re: Reynolds slated to start on Wednesday

    In addition to the point I made two posts up, the Reds probably don't want to wind up with Leake or Reynolds for Sunday if the game counts. They want one of their most experienced guys ready for Sunday.

    Using Reynolds on Wednesday would ensure that Arroyo is available for Sunday. Latos, Bailey and Arroyo over the weekend.

    As I said, though, they won't do this if on Wednesday they are still in a serious fight for the Division. They will use Latos Wednesday if they are very close to the Cards.

    There is a wild card (no pun intended) - Cueto. If he is lights out tonight, then Reds may use Latos Wednesday in any event - and use Cueto Sunday. That way they can skip the Reynolds thing regardless of the standings.

    I thought we already suffered through one Reynolds start to "line everyone up for the postseason" ?

    I now what I would do. Start him on Wednesday. Get three or four innings from him and then go to Simon for three. Then go from there. I'd rather see that than Reynolds again.

    I agree. I want no part of Latos -- or anyone else on the staff -- pitching on 3 days rest.


    When the playoffs start.....what would be the problem, if Cueto and Cingrani cannot pitch more than 5 innings.....having Latos and Bailey pitching on 3 days rest, at least once?

    Re: Reynolds slated to start on Wednesday

    Why is Latos getting the nod over Bailey in the one game playoff?

    I don't like it, for many reasons.

    a) Latos has looked sluggish at best lately. Perfectly fine if he is just tired but he looks it.

    b) Bailey has been better against both the Cardinals this year and especially the Pirates in his career.

    c) Latos started the biggest game for the franchise in several decades, and he lost without even keeping us in the game.

    I give the ball to Bailey, he's the guy who shows up in the big spots. He's came up through this organization. He has earned it. I think putting Latos in the spot is asking for trouble. I think he grips too hard in big spots.

    Marty said on the radio that "not too many people expect Reynolds" to make Wednesday's start.

    Re: Reynolds slated to start on Wednesday

    I would start Bailey and Cueto over Latos in the wildcard game. Latos has been really struggling the last month and a half. Especially if its here at GABP, I am going with Bailey, if its at Pitt, I am going with Cueto.

    Re: Reynolds slated to start on Wednesday

    I'm confused. Do some of you WANT Greg Reynolds to pitch in potentially meaningful games for this team? I'm fine with Latos pitching on Wednesday and then pitching (if necessary) the play-in game on one extra day of rest.

    Tuesday - Leake (on 5 days' rest)
    Wednesday - Latos (on 4 days' rest)
    Friday - Bailey (on 5 days' rest)
    Saturday - Arroyo (on 5 days' rest)
    Sunday - Cueto on (on 5 days' rest)

    Tuesday [unless we win division] - Latos on 5 days' rest

    not brain surgery.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Yea, I don't get it either. Unless the Reds WANT Cueto to pitch the WC game. Which, after hearing Dusty's comments tonight, might be their plan. I'm honestly not sure who I would pick out of Cueto, Bailey, and Latos if they were all somehow available. As much as I would hesitate making Cueto's first meaningful start back the WC game, he's earned my trust in big games enough to warrant the consideration. Tough decisions, but I say go for the division with the worst case being we get home field for the WC. And that means keeping Reynolds far away from the mound.

    Homer has a no hitter and a one hitter in his career at Three Rivers Heinz Park.

    Given Cueto's performance last night, I'd say this makes the most sense. Saving Latos for Pittsburgh made some sense with an iffy Cueto, but now the Reds have three solid starters for the Pirates and the team's overall ace ready for the play-in game. May as well win that game on Wednesday.

    I was all for Reynolds and the pen handling last Wednesday against the Astros with the day-off, but now that Cueto seems ready to be a horse again, it's not necessary to save Latos. It actually has him well rested for the play-in.

    Let's see where we are come Sunday. We might opt to hold Cueto out of Sunday's game and save him to start the WC game on Tues. But I don't see any reason for Reynolds to start any game until then
