    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.

    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?

    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.

    Matt... Yep! Starting to become a trend.

    On a side note, I saw Todd Jones while I was in Miami. He had some very interesting comments about the organization but stopped short of bad mouthing anyone. Which is very respectable. As he pointed out they did give him a shot and it turned out well.

    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.

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

    Todd Jones is a class act, i would expect nothing less of him...his weekly article in Sporting News is always a joy to read

    He's a lot of fun outside the clubhouse too. He gets a lot out of life. Everyone on that staff looks up to Jones and Leiter. They call Leiter "Dad". What I thought was even more remarkable is that Leiter hasn't pitched well and all of the pitchers were there to support him just as he had done for them. Very productive environment.
