    Merged:No reason to sour on Majewski so quickly / Daugherty: Majewski needs to forget

    I was quite perplexed when reading the gamethread how people were ragging on Magic so quickly. And these were the same people that held a high regard for the trade that brought him in.

    I am no fan of the trade, but based on his 2 performances there is no reason to sour on him so quickly.

    Today in 2/3 of an innings he struck out 2 guys without issuing a walk, nor did he give up a HR. The runs scored based on bad luck for Magic. If he pitches like that every game he would be the best pitcher in baseball. The BAPIP would equalize to some level around .310 when you factor in the Reds defense.

    I think everyone needs to realize that games like this will happen to Magic. Since he doesn't give up many homeruns and doesn't strike out many guys, he will pretty much pitch as well as the BAPIP let's him. He could have just as easily gotten the first 2 guys out without giving up any hits. He will generally limit the damage because he doesn't give up many HRs, but games like this will happen because he simply doesn't K enough batters on a regular basis.

    I thought he actually pitched great tonight. If he keeps pitching the way he did in the first 2 games you will see Magic get a lot of success. Based on his career numbers with the Nats you can expect a pretty reliable set-up type guy. Nothing fancy, but he'll get the job done more often than not. Give him a chance.

    There is only one "Magic", and he played basketball. But, I do concur. I am not concerned with the way he has performed so far. He's not going to miss a lot of bats, but Majewski deals up a lot of ground balls and will be just fine short relieving for this team. He's no Scott Linebrink, but I think people are just anxious to see this deal pay dividends. Rightfully so.

    He has been very unlucky. That's not a stat saying that, just my observation. For the most part, he has been blooped to death.

    He's a solid pitcher and I'm glad he's on the Reds.

    I didn't read the game thread but I can tell you who those people were. They were the same people that complain about everything that the Reds do right or wrong, Thay are the board whiners for what ever reason, If the reds had not made that trade they would be whining because they didn't. I once questioned the Great Sparkey Anderson.

    If not "Magic", how about we just call him "M.J." instead? Surely there isn't another "M.J."?

    I'll admit, I been ragging on him. But it's still too early to be doing that. Actually he hasn't been that bad, just a little unlucky in my opinion.

    3 and 0 since the trade. The Nats are 0 and 2. Small sample size.

    Re: Majewski

    I was at the game last night, and there were quite a few people around me booing him and screaming "Go back to DC, we don't want you here!" and other less nice things.

    People need to get over it, it's done now, complaining and whining won't change it.

    He at least looked like he cared as he came off the mound, screaming into his glove as it were.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    The funny thing is, the harsh criticism of Magic in the game thread came shortly after we were criticizing the Nats fans for criticizing Felipe...you follow?

    Hahahaha..that's great reds44. Thanks for posting it. It's good to see there are totally crazy fans in other cities too.

    But they seem to hate Kearns and Lopez so maybe they didn't get the memo, or have the right subscription to BA because they should know that they skunked us and that the Reds will cease to exist as a team.

    Well, if the new players came over to the Reds and did 100% nothing when given 6 chances, I would be a tad peeved too.

    But some of those posts are a tad over the top like "Lopez doesnt even care" or "Kearns is the worst outfielder".

    Those are just "im mad" posts though.

    Those two will turn it around. They are playing on a dumpy team with no shot at the playoffs. What drive they had went out the window when they play in that cavern in Washington with nothing to win for.

    There were numerous reason to be sour (which Steel doucmented quite well in another thread) on him before he pitched.
