40,000 fans coming to see the Reds on a sellout Saturday and all the better the Reds can do is start Joe Mays?
The front office has done terrific acquiring Arroyo, Phillips, Ross, Mewjewski, Bray, etc..............but the inability to find a better 5th starter for a big game like today is inexcusable.
They make a big trade to buffer the bullpen and encourage the team that they're trying to win this thing and THEN THEY START JOE MAYS?
Give me a break. I think it sent a bad message to the players and fans today starting this guy.
I never wanted to rush Homer Bailey..........but I would bet a million dollars that as a 5th starter his e.r.a. will never approach 8.00 even as a clueless rookie.
This team is leading the wild card and the front office can do no better than JOE MAYS?
They have to do better than that.
