    It was a seeing-eye single at a crucial moment. Tip your cap to the timely hitting, get a good night's sleep and get them tomorrow.

    Now that you've calmed down a bit, maybe you can join the rest of us. Emotion is fine (baseball wouldn't be the same without it), but it doesn't translate to good discussion. The "sky is falling" emotion after a single loss gets old quickly around here. You aren't the first, and you won't be the last.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    You are acting like Coffey went Brad Lidge on us. He allowed a chopper that only got through because the infield was playing in because Arroyo and Stanton left the bases loaded for him.

    Its one thing to come into the game and give up a HR. Its entirely another thing to allow a chopper to get through a drawn in infield.

    It's not like the guy hit a hard smash. It was an "excuse-me" hit. It happens.

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!

    Well, I guess Todd Coffey really is a joke just because you said so.

    Then again, I decided to look at some facts myself. What I found is that last season Coffey led the Reds in games (81), relief innings (78.0), put up a near 7 K/9 ratio for the season - including a K/9 ratio of 8.16 after the All-Star Break - and oh by the way ... he also threw up a 134 ERA+.

    As if that wasn't enough, of Coffey's 340 total batter's faced in 2006, 230 of them were in "Late and Close" situations, which is defined as plate appearances in the 7th inning or later when the batting team is tied, ahead by one run, or has the tying run at least in the on-deck circle. And in those 230 "Late and Close" plate appearances, Coffey's opponent's OPS was a mere .713, which is also roughly 50 points lower than the average NL hitter.

    Todd Coffey is a quality relief pitcher, and this bullpen needs more Todd Coffeys.

    Just for fun.

    Todd Coffey:
    .2 IP
    1 H
    0 ER

    Victor Santos:
    .2 IP
    0 H
    0 ER

    Those 2 runs go on the Narron/Arroyo combo, not Coffey.

    Re: Todd Coffey is a Joke!

    Todd Coffey is the best relief pitcher the Reds have. I wish we had six more Todd Coffey's.

    You know what the joke was? Narron leaving Arroyo in for the 8th inning after he had already thrown 100 pitches on a cold night.
