    Jared Burton

    Interesting quote from Jerry Narron (from the Reds official site)

    "Stuff-wise, he's probably got the best of anybody in our bullpen." -- Narron, on Rule 5 Draft pick Jared Burton, a 25-year-old right-hander
    Are the Reds purposely raising Burton's stock for some reason (the only reason I can think of is to trade him ) or does he really have better stuff than Coffey and Bray???

    I know others have speculated, but I'm more and more believing Krivsky knows Burton will be the PTBNL in the A's deal....otherwise they are making it fairly clear that he'll stick with the club...which by the way, I like a lot...I got to see him 3 times this spring and he was IMPRESSIVE

    I agree. And I think that's the real import of Narron's comments. He's telling people that this is a guy he doesn't want to lose.

    And my opinion of Krivsky keeps improving.

    Or could Narron b sending a message to the vets in the pen they need to step it up. I think if I was a Weathers or Cormier and heard that i'd want to go out there and prove that a 25 yr. old rule 5 pick isn't better then me.

    Weathers isn't going anywhere. He was a solid reliever for us last year. Cormier could be a different story.

    Perhaps he's sending a message to Krivisky? The younger live arms is what we need, not the old dead..about to fall off...geritol arms.

    Are we still talking about Jerry Narron? He firmly believes in the scrappy vet

    wait. Burton as the PTBNL for Saarloos? The Reds owe the A's a PTBNL?

    oh, just kill me.

    Did we get Burton from the A's in the Role V draft?

    If not, Burton couldn't be the PTBNL later. We have to keep him on the roster, and if we don't we have to offer him back to the team we got him from before anyone else.

    Even if Burton was on the A's before coming here, I don't think him being the PTBNL is possible.

    Re: Jared Burton

    We got Burton in the draft from the A's however.


    We are OWED and OWE a PTBNL. (part of the Saarloos deal)

    Burton could be the one we are owed.

    When does Hunting season for Aged LHP's start?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Re: Jared Burton

    Milton is flat out awful.

    My starting 4 (no need for a 5th starter for a while) is:

    Harang
    Arroyo
    Belisle
    Lohse

    I'd release or DL Milton, and let the battle for the 5 spot begin.

    Santos vs EZ. Steel Cage Match.

    I'd love it if Cormier followed Milton out of town in Wilson's wake. Burton AND Salmon should be in the pen. Come September we might see the Major League debut of Homer Bailey. I think we all expect that. But I think we could also see the ML debut of Tyler Pelland too if some of these aging lefties (Cormier, Stanton, Guardado) have trouble, and some of the seemingly brittle lefties (Bray) are ineffective.
