    Yes, that's right: a 13.0 K/9 and a 9.4 K/BB. PECOTA must have spit this guy out and said "you gotta be kidding."

    Yea', I just saw the replay and Flyer85 busted me in kangaroo court for not remembering how many outs there were.

    you could tell Marty hadn't checked that ahead of time because he was a bit speechless after reading that Larue leads the Reds in that stat

    after Tampa Bay leaves town, the Reds will battle Baltimore, Boston, Atlanta, and St. Louis. IMO, the Reds will be lucky to win 3 of those 13 games. Will Miley survive that mess?
