    He was a minor league free agent. Seems like he should have gotten 40 man protection with hindsight, but I can understand why he wasn't. Padres are great at turning these live arms into good bullpen pieces, basically the anti-Reds in that regard.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    How does Ervin whiff on so many fastballs center cut?

    Nothing new, just curious, earlier Lauer was just pumping them in straight as a string, as well.

    Reds are guaranteed a sub-.500 record for the fifth consecutive season.

    Now at 23 games under .500 IIRC a new low water mark for the season.

    Stock started his pro career as a catcher (2 way player in college) and later converted to pitcher fulltime, he has been wracked with minor injuries and has always had major control issues. He was signed by the Reds as a six-year minor league free agent to a one year deal, after spending a year in the INDY leagues. He pitched pretty well but it would have been extremely hard for the Reds to justify adding him to their 40 man roster last winter, which would have prevented him from reaching FA again.

    The Pads signed him to a minor league deal and he started the year as a 28 year old in AA. His numbers look good right now because he throws super hard (has hit 100), but his minor league stats indicate there will be a lot more walks in his future. He's a west coast boy though, so maybe that thin ocean air will aid him in becoming a good big leaguer.

    Dude is smart as hell, entered USC as a 16 year old. Would probably make a great coach some day.
