    Milton Gives Up 5 HR's to Single A Pirates!!!!

    The ESPN announcers were sure: "Milton would normally start this game, but they know he's on the team, so they;re going to take a look at young Bobby Livingston"

    And yet, there's this gem from today (per Fay):

    Eric Milton gave up four home runs in five ininngs to the Single-A Pirates. The wind was blowing out, but it was less than 100 mph.


    Ugh... and the ESPN guys just said they were sure Moller was going to make the team...
    Tom Shearn... who knew?

    Reds reccord when I attend in 2007: 6-1

    Not a joke.

    Don't blow up the blog, but . . .

    Eric Milton gave up four home runs in five ininngs to the Single-A Pirates. The wind was blowing out, but it was less than 100 mph.

    $9 million is lot of salary to eat, but . . .

    This just announced: "And the new pticher for the Reds . . . Gary Majewski"

    He was throwing batting practice... right?

    That's... encouraging

    Re: um... Milton is the 3rd starter?

    Well, I believe he's actually the #4. I know that doesn't really make you feel any better though.

    Truly sad thing is he will be in the rotation while Livingston may not be.

    I'm guessing they're going to take a hard look at whether Milton is physically okay and try to find a way to disable him. I can't imagine that anyone's going to want him. Oy vey! Dan O'Brien sure messed us up with that signing.

    Dan Obrien wanted Millwood and Clement. Linder said pick up Milton.


    I dont think anyone could have predicted Miltons knee falling off, then his elbow then his head...

    From his comments to Fay and my own wishful thinking, I wonder if he may not be mulling retirement.

    I thought Milton had a degenerative knee problem at the time of the signing?

    I think you're absolutely right, but that's why I think the Reds look long and hard as to whether they can legitmately disable him.

    I thought he had the surgery the year before signing, and everyone "thought" he was okay due to the numbers he put up in Philly.

    Let me check then I'll edit this, because quite honestly, I don't know. I always thought he had more knee problems after coming here.
    ---------------------------

    Yeah it was the year before he went to Philly...

    In Philly he posted this line..

    Code:
    14 6 4.75 34 34 0 0 0 0 201.0 196 110 106 43 75 161 3 0  8.78 1.93 3.36 7.21 1.35
    Then his knee fell off for us the next year and last year.

    This rotation is going to be pretty bad this year.

    I'm not positive on it but I thought I read he had a degenerative knee injury when he signed. Maybe that came later?

    Nah. I've been told Lohse has "great stuff" and Milton has a good quality start %.
