    Wonder if the Pirates think he's funny.

    Todd looked very calm and in command. He was used in the 7th where he is best suited FOR NOW. I thought he looked good and CONFIDENT. It's not easy standing on the bump. Hope he can build off of that.
    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...

    You got me there!! Even Rick Reuschel looked "good" on the bump.

    How would you know if he's a good pitcher or not, he's young and developing. If you had been in control Schilling would have been cut because his first year or so he sucked, and Aaron Harang wasn't that great either. Neither was Bronson Arroyo.

    I'm wondering what you think Coffey will morph into....

    He's a good bullpen arm (above average so he help the pen) but not a great one (not the ideal guy for high leverage situations). It's not most likely that he's going to develop into a great one. They guy will most likely have a nice career and contribute...lets not compare him to Schilling or really any quality starter.

    I know the title to this thread was really over the top but did this:

I am just so tired of this bullpen not ever being able to hold anything down, it gets ridiculous after awhile. on a lighter note, victor santos looked stellar thus far!

    It would be better to make a post describing the problem and then give one or more suggestions about how the situation could be improved or how it could have been handled better.

    Let's give mroby85 a chance to describe what he would do if he were in charge.

    Would you release Todd Coffey and bring up a minor leaguer to pitch in those situations? Would you trade him to the Nationals for Felipe Lopez? Would you have left Arroyo in to keep pitching after he allowed the two hits to start the inning after already throwing over 100 pitches? Would you have left the infield back so that grounder wouldn't have leaked through? Would you have advised Coffey to throw a different pitch in that situation? Would you have sent to the bullpen for Burton or Weathers instead of Coffey?

    Insightful comments and cogent observations are much more interesting to read and debate than sour-grapes complaining is.

    I am not normally a fan of Narron's handling of the pitching staff, but in this case I thought he made the correct decision to bring in Coffey in that situation (although I would not have had Arroyo start the inning in the first place). Coffey failed to get us out of the inning unscathed, but I thought the pitch was a tough pitch to hit. DeRosa was able to get the bat on it and was fortunate enough to see it find a hole. It was a good pitch from Coffey, but DeRosa was good enough to eke out a basehit.

    Sometimes good pitches get hit. I remember last year Joel Zumaya threw a blazing fastball to Griffey low in the zone at 102MPH -- a fantastic pitch. But Griffey hit it over the outfield wall anyway.
    I know that you're only saying this sarcastically and will say im wrong, but if i were in charge, Coffey could stay in the bullpen, but it would be as a mop up guy, and he certainly wouldn't be coming in with the game on the line, or to keep a game within a run. I personally wouldn't have sent arroyo out for the 8th, considering it is so early in the season, but since he was already out there, i wouldve let him try to finish it up, because all he did was give up singles to derek lee, and aramis ramires, the heart of the cubs order.

    also i don't believe i'm on here "whining like a sissy" im just stating opinion on this matter which is what i thought message boards were for, im pretty sure what i posted was about reds baseball, and this is redszone.
