    Hancock or Majewski?

    Josh Hancock: 47IP, .94WHIP, 32K, 3.26ERA
    Gary Majewski: 55IP, 1.34WHIP, 34K, 3.58ERA

    Who would you guys rather have right now? We should have waited until the all star break and traded Hancock for Carpenter and Rolen!

    I didn't think so either, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, travel, new team etc.

    I was hoping Majewski would strike out the side on 2 pitches. Didn't happen.

    Its true... Lopez and Kearns went a combined 0-7 with 10 LOB, a pair of walks and a HBP. Hardly stellar. But Kearns did just throw out a runner at home to stop the bleeding in the 8th. Pirates lead 7-4, and unless the Nats get lucky we won't see Ears or Lopez again tonight. Lopez also had an error on an eazy DP ball, and that washinton relief pitching just gave up 2 runs in the 8th in what WAS a 1 run game.

    Kearns also got doubled off 1st in an unassisted DP by Sean.

    Hancock would be, by far, the best arm in the Reds' bullpen.

    Wayne should have called me first. I would have set him straight.

    I'm not a fan of Hancock but the way he has pitched this season I would rather have him and be able to use Kearns and or Lopez for another trade than Majewski.

    Re: Hancock or Majewski?

    I did like Hancock out of the bullpen with the Reds last year. But that was a different situation for him. Given the state of our bullpen before the trade was made I am sure Hancock's arm would be ready to fall off by now. Magic has nasty stuff and I for one was not worried one bit when Narron made the call to the pen. Couldn't say that a week ago.

    Re: Hancock or Majewski?

    Is Clayton actually gonna start? Aurilia's bat is about 7 times better and his defense at short is probably just as good if not better. If Aurilia doesn't play, then my opinion on the future of this organization is much less optimistic.

    Re: Hancock or Majewski?

    Would Hancock be pitching as well as he is if he was never released by the Reds? He's a human being after all, it's reasonable to assume that being released shook him up or pissed him off enough to make him work a little harder than he had been. It's human nature.

    I'm not sold on looking at this argument with stats only. I'll trust WK on this one so far.

    Re: Hancock or Majewski?

    Easy answer: Hancock.

    We had him. He was all ours, until we handed him over to the Cards, receiving nothing of value in return.

    Then, lo and behold, in his absence, our bullpen posted the worst ERA of any team in the National League. Up a creek without a paddle, we dealt away Kearns and Lopez -- two of our most proficient young everyday players -- to secure middle relievers to do a job for us that Hancock was well equipped to handle this season.

    Front office apologists can couch this lopsided trade as a move toward pitching and defense. But let's be honest about what really happened.

    Krivsky exhibited a magic touch in picking up Phillips, Ross, Hatteberg and Arroyo this spring. On the flip side, he made a colossal blunder in backing up Narron on Hancock and Wagner, exposing the ugliest warts of our horrendous bullpen.

    We got fleeced then. Now, we've been taken to the cleaners a second time to try to compensate for that first rash and inexcusable blunder.

    If Krivsky's mantra really is pitching and defense, then he should never have permitted Narron to cut Hancock before we had a chance this spring to see his stuff. Fat guys can't pitch? Tell that to David Wells.

    Re: Hancock or Majewski?

    Right now I think Majewski is going to be a tad better and at the end of the season I think it will probably be the same. And when all is said and done I think that Hancock and Majewski will probably post similar career numbers from this point right now until the end of both of their respective careers.
