    I've never seen his mechanics, so I'll just take your word for it. But there are always small tweeks good coaches can do. A move here, more leg motion here, move the release point slightly one way or another.

    I understand arm injuries are a part of baseball, but the rash of high profile pitching prospects in the last couple of years for the Reds is just over the top.

    Hall, Basham, Dumatrait, Gruler, Howington, Mattox, Pauly.

    I'm sure I've missed a few. Everyone one of those guys was a top Reds prospect when he got hurt.

    I just see a problem, a trend there, and I'm frustrated by it.

    Bingo. It is the desperation for starting pitching that let the Reds take a fireballing,2 pitch pitcher with violent pitching mechanics and try to "teach" him a changeup that he barely used and probably will never use correctly then try and make him a starter. I smell Nearhrig over that one because it fits from the Bowden era bombouts.

    Been starting to rethink that strategy, esp. with two runners in scoring position. Medium depth close enough to throw out the runner at the plate, but on the cut in the grass, you might just as well throw it in underhand.

    On another note, the 2004 Braves are making the Reds look silly the way teams use to make them silly for years. Lesson, there is hope for a sad sack franchise like ours, but its not gonna come with the folks currently financing and running the ship.

    Coming into tonight, the Reds had posted a 6.87 ERA this June.

    My guess that typical June fatigue is really starting to hit some arms like Harang which is really going to put "historically bad" into context.
