    Re: Corresponding Roster Move

    We're in a position right now we haven't been in for years.....more good pitchers than roster spots available. That's a recipe for success.

    Has Bailey pitched yet this year. I'm all in favor of skipping Milton and letting Arroyo start. That would buy us a few more days to see how the bullpen shakes out.

    With an off day next Thursday, will we skip Milton in the rotation? If not, he's scheduled to pitch Saturday in Chicago when I'm there. I hope we skip him.

    Awesome. Hopefully its a successful start to the season. We need a 5th starter solution. And Milton isn't it

    I guess Narron and the Brain trust think if Milton cannot keep us in the game facing the Pirates....he is done! The Pirates will be lucky to win 70 games this year.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I think it is too early in the season to be using Arroyo on short rest, especially when he threw so many pitches in his previous start.

    Also there is probably some strategic thinking going on by Narron. Using his pitchers this way, he starts the road trip with one of his aces, and has the one of them to open in the 2nd city and can come back with Arroyo again (with full rest) on either Saturday or Sunday at the end of the trip.

    All this said, I hate the thought of probably throwing away a game by starting Milton. And I agree even if he does OK this time and maybe the next, between his knee and his elbow, he probably does not have the stamina to stay in the rotation and be productive. Does anyone have any idea wheher the Reds might have insurance on him which would kick in if his knee or arm breaks down? If so maybe that is what they are hoping for by sending him to the mound.

    Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of butt. Asking Milton to pitch well is like, well hoping the Easter bunny visits tonight and that's not happening.

    Re: Corresponding Roster Move

    "Everybody's Favorite Uncle," as Marty calls him is a problem. He doesn't need to be anywhere near a mound in Great American Ballpark, and I'm surprised they didn't hold him off until the team got out of town. It amazes me that they can hold Edwin Encarnacion in the minors too long because they want to or Austin Kearns because of his attitude, but will rush Eric Milton back up to pitch in the bitter cold when he's recovering from a bad back.

    If you've ever had back problems, you'll know that cold weather is your enemy. Now, combining the cold weather with Milton's back problem and then add in the Great American Ballpark, and it just might get ugly tomorrow. And if it does, you might remember that the "brain trust" decided to bring him back tomorrow (today now) which might lead you to wonder if the "brain" in "brain trust" is an accurate description...
