    I'm not buying that. One good start in his last appearance isn't enough. He's been a trainwreck for nearly his entire major-league career.

    Question is who’s “gotten better.” Reed is better now than in any other MLB trial he’s had.

    His whole major league career spanning less than 100 innings.

    I was in attendance for the start in Pittsburgh. He got lit up like a Christmas tree, and looked like the Cody Reed we've all gotten to know and love. He didn't do much better in his next start vs. the Dodgers. You'll forgive me if I don't buy that he's turned the corner just because of one good start.

    I just said Cody got better. It’s clear from the numbers as compared with previous seasons. I didn’t say he was ready for enshrinement.

    Marty has been saying this for 4 years, it's why half the board hates him.

    I know you've only been a short time so I can tell with absolute certainty that Marty hate has nothing to do with what he's said about the Reds pitching.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    No, with Marty it gets lost among all the other whining and complaining he does. With Cowboy, it carries a little more weight. Mainly because he's more of a cheerleader, but also because he carries the gravitas of being an ex-MLB pitcher with a 14-year career, former All-Star, and Rolaids Relief Man winner.

    So you're saying I have to have been a major league pitcher to wax poetic about the Reds ineptitude in developing pitching?

    You can say it, but it means more coming from Brantley

    Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying.

    Come on, Brantley makes a comment that happens to be dead on, and people are getting chippy about it? It carries more weight because he rarely calls anyone out, mainly because he played for a long time and knows how hard the game is. (The exact same reason why Joe Nuxhall seldom called anyone out.) It's not the same as Marty's gripes or THom's soapbox tirades.

    So the pitching hasn't improved and I still see players making dumb mistakes in the field and on the bases and hitting. I know things were pretty crappy when Price was fired but Riggleman has been manager for the bulk of the season and it boggles my mind that he's still being talked about as a candidate for manager next season.

    Riggleman has been a good soldier, and maybe they might offer him another position in the organization as gratitude for accepting a difficult assignment this season, but I would be surprised if he's back as the manager next year.

    But then again, knowing the Reds as we all do, maybe I wouldn't be surprised.
