    Heres an update on Reitsma.

    3.12 ERA

    After the Braves took a 4-2 lead in the top of the 8th on a Laroche grandslam, Reitsma comes out the bottom of the 8th and gives up a grandslam to Milton Bradley. Reistma gave up 4 runs in 2/3 of an inning and Dodgers won 7-2.

    Milton's giving a lot of pitchers trouble as of late.

    Last night was not pretty for Reits, but I'd still rather have him than anyone this side of Wagner in our pen.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    He's also throwing 96 MPH and using his changeup more effectively.

    You mean he's better since leaving?

    Why am I not shocked?

    His changeup is probably faster than any fastball by a Reds pitcher.

    If he were here it would be slower, have to pitch to contact

    Re: Chris Reitsma

    This is why I think it's the REDS system/pitching coaches are inept.

    Reitsma
    BJ Ryan
    Chen
    Reyes
    Mecker
    Weathers

    All have excelled outside the REDS, what does Gullett and Hume do to these guys.

    Can we add Estes and Brian Moelher to this list. Estes did pitch well for the Cubs not to mention how many pitches come to Cincy and pitch worse than they didn't any place else or end up having arm surgery.

    Ryan never really got a chance with us and he had some success in the minors so saying the Reds were to blame for him not having success in Cincy is ludicrous since he only pitched in like two games for us.

    Then are you referring to Denyes Reyes? If so he had his most success for his. He had a couple of good years with us.

    Bruce Chen? There was about 50 other teams that also couldn't figure him ot, including the Braves.

    And Mercker? He has had pretty decent success with us through the years.

    I am in no way defending our pitching coaches but sayiny your examples are not really reflecting their ineptitude.

    This is EXACTLY why Gullet must go. Look at the track record. Pitchers genererally get better when they leave the Reds and they generally get worse when they join the Reds.

    Gullett is awful as a PC. What FA pitcher would EVER want to come to Cincinnati with the way the staff is going under Gullett's leadership?
