    Here is the thing I guess that kind of bugs me about these numbers and the complaints about Sullivan. He was hit hard with the ball that caused an injury, yet continued to pitch even though he was hurt. He made adjustments, that created other problems for himself. He eventually had to give in to is injuries. The guy gives it his all. Could he be through, perhaps. I like what I saw recently out of him. This could be really something if he comes back at a cheaper salary.

    That being said, I still want to see what Hummel is like.

    The last I saw is that Hummel will be with the Reds organization on Tuesday.

    It all depends on how you paint the numbers though..
    Sully had an awful 2002 (I apologize for misidentifying his worse season early, that wasn't intentional).. But he's been solid this year.. true, this year is a small sample size..

    I haven't put a whole lot of TV time into watching the Reds this year. I guess a key thing for me (if the decision was up to me), would be to watch how Sully is throwing.. look back through the logs.. He hasn't given up a lot of hits this year.. that would seem to indicate his stuff is pretty good this season.. which would lead me to believe he has at least one more good year left..
    I mean, if he was getting lit up like Haynes, I'd be more concerned.

    That said, I can understand the reasoning that some of you have that Sully might be a ticking time bomb.. Just respectfully disagree.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    CQ's right.

    Sullivan's game log from 2002:

    link

    Before Sullivan came in at Milwaukee on 5/13/02, he had a 2.13 ERA in 25.1 innings.

    Then he took a line drive off the elbow, I believe...
