    Yadier Molina quote.......

    "I think every time we were looking for a fastball he threw a changeup, and every time we were looking for a changeup, he threw a fastball," Molina said. "He's a great pitcher, one of the best in the National League."

    He was talking about Milton. After last season, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I'd ever hear a major league player saying this about Eric Milton.

    Don't get me wrong, I still have my reservations about him, but he is showing he knows how to pitch if healthy.

    I was just going to post that quote, too. Of course, Yadier was fresh off a baffling game against Milty. He is a catcher, though, so you wouldn't think he would throw that kind of compliment aroung lightly. Have to say I really, REALLY like our top three starters much more than I thought I would at this stage.

    Is that Soto's change he's throwing?

    Milton has been solid, and so has Elizardo.

    Who knew?

    He's never pitched this well for an entire season, meaning I'm afraid of the inevitable return to earth, hopefully it won't be too bad, he's looked nice lately.

    If Milty has a sub 4.50 ERA at the end of July, do we still shop him? I say no.

    Depends if we are still contending or not.

    Let's stop shopping everybody and play ball. I think this team is the real deal and we're going to stay in contention all season.

    Exactly. I think the talk of shopping players can be almost completely squelched for now. The Reds are contending and show no signs of going away. The only shopping it looks like the Reds will do will be for additions, not subtractions.

    Paul Wilson says "Hi!" He would wave, too, but he can't lift his right arm.

    You trade Milton at the first opportunity because if you don't, you have to pay Eric Milton $9 million+ to pitch for your team next year. Maybe he doesn't emplode this year, but I sure don't trust him to pitch well for another 18 months.

    No, if you are contending, you keep Milton if he's pitching like that.
    After this year, there's only one year left on his contract. So, even if he stinks next year, it's worth it not to torpedo a contending season.

    What the Reds need just as bad as more starting pitching is to get the fans back. If the team contends this year, you don't pull a 2000/2003 and start dumping people (even if it's "fool's gold" contending).

    We have to be honest, if Milton is pitching well and we deal him at the deadline, what front line pitcher is going to want to come here? Do you think Mulder, Zito, or whoever is going to want to sign as a free agent, only to be treated like trade bait?

    If Milton is giving us good starts, then why dump him just to remove his contract 1 year earlier? Keep in mind that the "payflex" freed is not likely going to attract a pitcher that's better than what Milton is doing now.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
