Hey there, I have been a fan of this forum for quite some time now. After 2 years of secretly reading the posts, I finally got the balls to post something. That being said, I would like to offer my oppinion on the best kept secret in the Reds minor league system. His name is Tom Shearn, and while at the age of 28 he is no spring chicken or a top prospect like Homer Bailey. His numbers are outstanding and can not be ignored. He is a very versatile pitcher who can start and relieve at the drop of a hat and does a good job in both roles. I don't need to go on and on. I think his numbers speak for themself along with this article that was posted in the Louisville newspaper a couple of days ago.
