    Looks like Weathers came back to earth a little lately, his numbers were a little to good.

    No. The problem is that Narron really doesn't have anything resembling a good bullpen. You can make as few- or as many- moves as you like, but if you continually bring in mediocre-to-bad pitchers, something is eventually going to break down. That's what happened in the 2nd game tonight and the loss wasn't at all surprising to me.

    Darn it!!! I was looking forward to coming back to this thread seeing "This one belongs to the Reds"... Well, since it's passed midnite - this just ruined Saturday for me...

    Let's hope games like these can have a positive effect on next year. That is, management can learn that it cannot go into next year with David Weathers penciled in as closer. That has never been his role in his long career and now's not the time to start. I'm OK with him closing for now because we're in mop up mode for 2005 and have been ever since he was moved to the closer's role. But if he goes into Spring Training "in the hunt" for closer then that's further evidence this organization has no plan.
