    We'll never know if he had the option or not, but again, they were up by 5 runs.

    If it was a close ball game, no problem at all with pulling him. But it wasn't.

    I was rooting for Harang. He will always be one of my favorite Reds.

    Good one. Apparently that arguably pivotal aspect of Harang's tenure with the Reds has been widely forgotten.

    I was actually surprised no one got there before I did.

    Good to see you around Steel. Didn't realize it took a blast from the Reds past to make it happen... Very happy for Harang that he's having some success. He was a good dude and one of the very few bright spots through the lost decade. I'm sure he enjoys having Andrelton Simmons.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Yeah. I could be wrong, but the only reason Aaron is in a Brave's uni, and in the rotation ... after being released in late Spring by the Indians .... is because of the plethora of injuries to the Braves starting rotation, and they needed bodies. They've gotten nailed big time!

    For a team of extremes, one thing the Braves expected to rely on was their starting pitching. But the team lost projected opening day starter Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to season-ending elbow injuries in spring training. Braves general manager Frank Wren quickly signed free-agent Ervin Santana, but the rotation remains thin, especially early in the season. Mike Minor, who had a sore shoulder early in the spring, is expected to be ready in mid-April. Gavin Floyd, recovering from surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow, could join the rotation in May. Atlanta cut Garcia late in spring training and signed Harang after he was released from a minor league contract by Cleveland.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

If he got the last 6 outs with what he averaged for a count to that point he'd have 155 pitches when the game ended. Had it been 8 innings I send him out for the ninth but not at 121 in 7 innings.
    I agree. I would loved for Harang to get the no-hitter but asking or even just letting him go for it when it meant a 150+ pitch outing in April could not have been in the best interest of either him o r his team.
    I always liked him and wish him well, other than when he faces the Reds.

    An early look at the schedule indicates Harang will pitch again on Wed and will miss the series with the Reds.
