    Why?

    One season doesn't make a career and evidently if he didn't pass through someone sitting at a desk doing this for a living must think that one year isn't a career either, and they would actually have to pay him for it.

    Plus there are times that teams claim players as strategy thereby preventing a rival from getting a needed player. It could be too that he was claimed but the Reds couldn't work out a satisfactory deal.

    I think that our holes are not quite as glaring as the Cardinals' holes so I'm glad to see that this list doesn't have any difference makers on it. I think we'll be okay, I was just worried that the Cards might make a move.

    I think Milton could pitch a perfect game and there would be folks on this board who can't recognize the Milton v.2005 is much different than Milton v.2006. He pitched a gutsy game last night, IMO.

    Yes, he's gone from horrifyingly bad in 2005 to regular bad in 2006.

    I'll respectfully disagree. He has been halfway decent this year. Much better than last year.

    I think Milton has been much better than last year. I don't think his era accurately displays how well he's pitched overall. I am much more confident in him keeping us in games this year.
    Who's on first?

    Regular bad is a good description for every fifth starter in the league and many fourth starters (and second starter if you're STL). He has kept us in games and thats all you can ask for from the back of your rotation.

    Most fifth starters don't make 8.5 million.

    It's fine if you disagree with me, but his ERA is 5.22 and the Reds offense averages 5.02 runs per game, so he's generally making the offense work harder than usual. His K/9 is 5.41 -- Danny Graves territory. No matter what spot he occupies in the rotation, that's bad. Granted, he's better than last year, but when you have to shave more than a run off your ERA to be considered even slightly less than horrible, I don't want you pitching for my team.
