    Re: Rick White

    So I guess we won't be merging this thread with the Rick White thread from last week.

    However, if you want to distinguish between White, Mercker, or Weathers, look at their last 5 years, not the last 45 days.
    He has a BAA of .338. Not anything to be proud of and it kind of negates his walk ratio. He should only be used in games with at least a 6 run differential in either direction.

    I think with the way the lizard has been pitching, i think he needs to stay in the rotation, and we need to demote Dave Williams into the pen or trade him to another team for a bullpen guy. Say what about this trade:

    KC trades: ambriox Burgos RP

    Cincy trades: Dave Williams LHP

    Narron is grooming Rick White for the role of RZ whipping boy du jour.

    The role has been vacant since the departure of Tony Womack.

    Pay attention to the open sky
