    If I am being a little too cryptic... Here who it is not. It is not Zack Greinke, Jeff Francis, Scott Kazmir or Joe Blanton. Everytime I see Scott Kazmir's name in a box score or mentioned on ESPN, I think to myself.. whatever happened to Mini Roger Clemens.

    I believe Gruler is in extended spring training. I don't think anyone has high hopes for him after multiple surgeries. Looks like he is on his way to being compared more to Ty Howington than to Clemens.

    how about "mini-Pedro"?

    Ryan Anderson was called "little unit" after Randy Johnson, bith tall lefties.

    I think he called it quits after 4 or 5 elbow surgeries.

    He pitched for Milwuakee last year, had a couple good games in the minors.. not sure where he's at now though.

    Sometimes I wonder what could have been for the Reds..

    A rotation of Sowers, Kazmir, Arroyo, Harang, and Claussen would look DAMN fine right about now.
