    Amir Garrett started off well in the 7th with a strikeout and groundout but then walk, walk, RBI single, though Duvall once again throws out a baserunner to end the inning.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I thought Garrett looked more solid in his delivery today. He needs to begin next season at AAA, as does Cody Reed.

    At this point I trust Reed to turn the corner more than I do Garrett.

    I think the opposite. But neither is a major league pitcher right now.

    The first question Reds need to ask about every member of next year’s pitching staff, starter or reliever - is this guy a major league pitcher?

    But starter or reliever? These two guys have been starters in the minors but are now being used in relief.

    Can't some of the issues be attributable to that switch? And which role do you think suits each best?

    Weird, pretty sure the Red Sox manager didn't want the Red Sox to score.

    I guess I look at these prospects and wonder if they will be major league pitchers. Young pithing is mostly up and down but with a couple of exceptions, it's been down. I hope I'm wrong, but getting a couple of starters like Kc says, might be the ticket.

    Pretty lifeless effort from the home team today, shut out. Thought Stephenson looked pretty good despite the four total runs allowed.

    Reds received more walks than they had hits. These are the type of teams the Reds need to be competitive with to really show they can contend. They are definitely a ways away from that. Overmatched by Boston completely.

    I don’t attribute their problems to switching from starter to relief. Reed has had the walk problem both roles. Garrett is only relieving now, has been a starter all season.

    I think Garrett will be a starter. He’s been injured, his hip. He needs to be fully healed and get back on track.

    Reed? Can’t seem to lick the walks. Not much progress, at least visibly, this year. I’d be inclined to let him relieve next year - get better in shorter outings.

    Both should begin at AAA IMO.
