    THrow strikes,
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Today's Joe Nuxhall Star of the Game is Sal Romano, who pitched 8 innings allowing no runs on 5 hits with 6 K's to earn the win.

    It was not Cody Reed but rather Zachary Levi from Chuck with his beard from the cheese puff era of season 3.

    Those most have been some nasty offspeed pitches from Romano on those swinging strikeouts. He was burying those balls and the Bucs were hacking away.

    Great Game from Big Sal today!

    Geno made two pretty plays at 3B.

    Re: 9/16/17 - Reds vs. Pirates

    This reminds of last year or what I remember from it. The Reds play horrible baseball, go 20 under .500 and then we played some pitiful teams and everyone had hopes for 2017. It's fool's gold, I say. The Pirates haven't been able to get out of their own way since August. They can't score runs, the pitching is iffy, and since September 5th, they've scored 24 runs, while giving up 46 and a record of 2-9, averaging 1.2 runs a game while their pitching has given up 4.2. I certainly hope Castillo, Romano, and Mahle are the real deal, but the jury is out. Last season's late streak probably saved Price his job, and this season's, if it continues may save it and warrant an extension. God, I hope not.

    I wouldn't call it fools gold. These are young pitchers who we are counting on pitching pretty well. That's different than years past.

    On instance I can think of is Lamb in 2015 with a 6+ ERA and his "fools gold" 11k/9. Watching him you knew the odds were stacked against him. The K rate gave us hope but not much else. Castillo, Romano and Mahle have looked like MLB caliber pitchers. It's different.

    Totally agree, but one thing that struck me was all the Twitter posts saying the 2018 rotation was set with Castillo, Mahle, and Romano and adding Homer and either Disco or Finnegan in there. My problem is that the first three (with the notable exception of Luis) are still unproven. We don't know yet whether Homer is back and we have to do a lot of thinking about Mahle and Sal. This really bothers me. Seeing Sal go 8 innings against the Bucs is no test of anything. They are tanking, and we may pass them in the standings. So, I just want to send out a warning that the rotation is not set and lots of time before next April is still out there, and lots of questions exist. Yeah, I want it all to work out, but I've wanted that for four years.
