please, no "everyone" answers except of course that's how you really feel.
i turned on xm radio late last nite and heard some guy talking of how reds pitching is totally terrible or something to that effect.i also heard a guy on espn today saying basically the same thing.
granted our pitching alone would come in last in the central.however we dont exactly have the royals offence either.
today i seen my first baseball fantasy magazine for 2006.they said what i have been sayin ......harang and claussen could be something special with continued improvement.they actually rated harang on same plane as the "mighty"( not to some) jeff weaver.so exactly who is hopeless on this staff?
harang claussen=could be good possible #2 and #3 starters
coffey wagner= have upside if they can find it.nuxie made comment on WLW last nite if only soto could teach coffey changeup(!) in ST
belisle= many high on him....me.....undecided
weathers merker = not great but dependable
the top 5 guys mentioned are young and i wouldnt put any of these guys in the stinkaroonie category.
wilson= could be a good #5 but he isnt a #1
that leaves guys like milton hudson standridge who i would put in the category.
so while the staff as a whole needs help i think there is at least a few bright rays of hope.people especially the so-called tv experts dont realize last yrs staff had graves and ortiz to go along with the milton's and hudson's.
btw it was great to see that first mlb mag on the shelves!
