    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.

    We are still contending in July. Milty has a sub 4.50 ERA. Do we shop him?

    I remember hearing someone say that Milton is using his off speed pitches more this year.

    Probably not.

    If I could find a sucker to take that contract, I'd trade him for a bag of peanuts without thinking twice.

    With the way our starters have performed, other than Claussen, who I still think will eventually come around, we are very solid. I would not give up value in the minors combined with quality major leaguers on the roster for another starter at this point. Milton has been outstanding. You could see from the start of this season that he has more velocity and a changeup that he has faith in. I think his good run is here to stay this year.

    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.
