This should raise some eyebrows, it did mine. And no one can accuse Pete of all people of not knowing Baseball!
Hmmm, interesting synopsis! If you wanna read the rest of Pete's interview here is the link to Marc Lancasters Blog.Thoughts on the current Reds?
"My advice to the general manager is, if you think youíve got good pitching, get more, because youíve got the offense and youíve got a pretty solid defense. Now youíve just got to get pitchers that can go out there and keep the ball in the ballpark. Itís a rough place to pitch in, no question about it Ė just like Philly.
"I know the Reds didnít hit in the clutch down the stretch. That happens. But when youíre not hitting in the clutch down the stretch, thatís when you need some 2-1 games and some 1-0 games and 3-2 games. The Big Red Machine couldnít win every night, 10-8. Youíve got to have some of those close games. You had a couple pitchers have good years and itís just going to be interesting to see if they sign any free-agent pitchers. I have a tendency to think they will. Itís just whoís out there and whoís available and who would like to pitch for the Reds? I would, if I was a pitcher. When youíve got some guys that can knock in some runs, it makes your job a little easier."
