    he had command of a good curve ball last night. That was the first time he has had that pitch all season.

    I don't mind if either he or Claussen goes. I would rather keep Williams because I just think he has alittle better pure stuff then Claussen because of his curve.

    Elizardo shouldn't be going anywhere though.

    Today's game by Claussen kinda throws a wrench into it all doesn't it?

    They're both throwing curves right now..... at us!

    I say we have a cage match and may the best man win!

    37 IP, 47H, 8 HR, 14 BB, 15 SO.

    That's all I need to see. That these numbers include an 8 IP, 5 H, 5 SO, 0 BB performance is just further testament to his suckitude. Seriously, he makes Milton from last year look good.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    REDS winning pct. as of today = .585
    REDS winning pct., Williams starts = .625

    REDS winning pct. in the month of May = .438
    REDS winning pct. in May, Williams starts = .750

    Yeah, and the Reds scored 10 runs, the 9, in support of those two May wins.

    But then they had too if they wanted to win.

    Boy, DanO really knew how to assemble a starting pitching staff, didn't he? No, I don't like Williams any better.

    Williams does not have a quality start: REDS are 4-1 (.800)
    Williams has a quality start in the game: REDS are 1-2 (.333)

    Maybe Dave understands this? Maybe we don't?

    To quote Franz Ferdinand, "I love the sound of you walking away."

    Good luck Dave, hope to see you pitching against us soon so we can beat you senseless.
