    2007 Nasty Boys?

    For some reason it is beginning to feel like with the stock piling of closers that we might end up keeping- all three spark the question, Is this a 07' version of Norm, Dibble and Myers? Of course they don't throw with the kind of velocity the previous tandem did. Thoughts ?

    Well, in a word.......no, two words....HECK NO! Yeah, they are former closers, but they are not in the prime of their careers like the 1990 version. I'll give you an A for creativity and hopefulness, though.

    The 1990 bullpen, and how dynamic it was with Charlton starting some ballgames and nobody complaining about their roles, was probably the primary reason why and how that team won a world championship. I'd love to see this bullpen be half as good.

    If Hermanson and Guardado come back healthy and on top of thier games, and you add in Todd Coffey for the 7th inning....they can be very, very good and really lock down the end of the game.

    But not Nasty Boys good.

    this pen is so not nasty. it's not even dirty. it's just a little uncouth at best.

    Maybe they could be "The Slightly Ill-Tempered Boys" or "The Uneasy Boys."

    I think a pen of Weathers, Stanton, Hermanson and Guardado could be slightly better than Myers, Dibble and Charlton if all of this year's guys pitch well. . .



    ... of course Dibble, Charlton and Myers have all been retired for years.

    With The Daily One, Weathers and Stanton in there, they might as well be the Centrum Silver slightly-more-than-boys

    Might be the only way Narron will give him consistent playing time.

    if i had to give the '06 reds pen a name it would be either "wait who is pitching", "there's a drive!" , or "is that charlie sheen?"

    this season i'm going with, "the recycled boys"
