    Reds might catch up if they don't swing

    Reds have now drawn 11 walks.

    I am still wondering, will Marty ever explain how walks can be bad both for the pitcher and for the hitter because that is his exact position on walks.

    Exactly. This pen is populated with a bunch of guys who simply don't perform very well over time because they're not freakin' good enough.

    I posted the whole pitching staff's OPSA numbers a while back and, at that time, there were about three pitchers on the whole staff who were above average. The rest were junk and many had ERA numbers that were out of line with their secondary numbers. A correction of those ERA numbers was only a matter of time.

    And not a one of those guys has thrown more IP in relief than the Reds should be able to reasonably expect and they've been carrying an extra arm all season long (and now have multiple extra arms). Better starters would help, but that help would be limited to not letting the stinkers in the pen get on the mound in the first place.

    Nothing like having one of the most potent offenses in baseball with one of the most pathetic pitching staffs...

    How potent is the Reds offense?

    They might be the only NL team to end up with 800 runs, they currently are in the plus 90 runs to the league average.

    Let's go for 100 and be one the worst (all around) teams with the best offensive.

    He doesn't dislike him, he just doesn't think he's ready to be in the big leagues yet
    Marty's wrong about EdE. The kid is 22, so growing pains are expected. At the same time, he has flashed some serious leather and cranked extra base hits at a very high rate. We're looking at a future All-Star, while Marty grouses and the game passes him by.

    "Ready for the big leagues" is a slippery thing.

    I think EE has proven everything he can at the minor league level. Yet, he is struggling (and growing) at the big league level.

    Is he ready? Weellllll sorta kinda maybe yes no. It's a 'tweener kind of thing.

    The Reds could keep him at AAA and continue to polish the stone. But I agree with what their doing and letting him learn in the bigs. Every time I watch EE in a game, I see him do good things. He is improving. I think he is handling all the pressure well too. The Reds get a from me on Eddie.

    I keep thinking "Mike Schmidt, rookie year" when I watch EE.

    Pay attention to the open sky
