    Umm Hi Guys


    My name is Brian Shackelford and I am a left handed relief pitcher. I currently am 1-0 in Louisville with a 1.50 ERA, and a save. I enjoy strikeing people out (7 in 6 IP), but mostly I get batters out whatever way I can. Last year I posted a 2.43 ERA in 37 games with the Reds.
    Seriously why is he in AAA?????

    Excellent question! He could easily replace Mike Burns or Rick White. It seems like a no-brainer. Every year the Reds have a pitcher or two that everyone in the whole world can see shouldn't be here..except the reds management. It's been that way for YEARS. (John Stupor, Xavier Hernandez, Danny Graves, Frank Viola, Jimmy Haynes, Jimmy Anderson, etc)

    The bullpen needs a shakeup, no doubt, but I'd have to say the Reds will unforunately give the likes of Belisle and Burns every chance to redeem themselves.

    I can actually ALMOST understand why Wags isn't up here because he hasn't faired well in MLB action. However I think he should be up here too. But there is not reason for Shack not to be up here.

    Where is that picture of the idiotmobile when we need it?!?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Call him up to AAA, see what he can do. Get at least Shack to MLB if not Wags as well.

    There is no doubt Shackelford and Wagner should be on the roster tomorrow. Burns and White or Hammond need to take that final trip to retirement land.

    Weathers
    Coffey
    Shackelford
    Merker
    Wagner
    Belisle
    Hammond or White

    That is still not a good bullpen, but it's better then what is in Cincy right now.
    Matta = Really good

    They don't have a veteran's presence on the mound.

    Case closed!
