    Rooting for or against Milton?

    Are you rooting for Milton, so he can contribute to the success of this team, or against him, so they have no choice to get rid of him.

    Why would you root against him? I'm rooting for him, but that's not going to make him any better.

    I'm definately rooting for him, he's shown in the past he can be a good pitcher and spring training means nothing. I really hope he can step it up and surprise us.

    I don't know.

    Just thought I'd see what people say.

    I'm rooting for him, of course, but my expectations are very very low. Here's hoping the bullpen doesn't have to pitch 7 innings

    against. i want him out of here sooner rather than later. the quicker he is gone the sooner homer can start taking in major league innings

    Got to root for him, because I don't think they'd cut/DFA him if he does badly, so I might as well hope that he does well.

    I don't think it's Milton that's holding Homer back, right now it's Homer not being ready that's holding him back.

    If Homer was truly ready to pitch in the Bigs I believe he'd be in the rotation one way or another. They'd find a spot.

    I hope anyone who roots against him hopes it happens like this... REDS win 12-9 after Milton gives up 9 runs in 3 innings of work. To root against him in any other way is baffling to me. Team first... Homer or releasing someone second.

    Personally I hope he goes 18-0 this year. Not b/c I am a member of the Milton fan club, but b/c I hope the REDS win each time they take the field. You wear a REDS uniform and take the field of play... I am 100% behind you.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I'm rooting for him, but him doing well tomorrow just prolongs what really needs to be done.

    Here's to prolonging

    I'm rooting for him, but I'm ready to be very cynical...

    I'm rooting for anyone wearing the wishbone C on their cap. Having said that, I feel Milton is the worst pitcher on this club. In fact, I feel it's safe to say his contract made this team out of spring training rather than his pitching skills.

    Re: Rooting for or against Milton?

    I think it's crazy to root against him if you are a Reds fan. I root for everyone who puts on a Reds uniform. Division titles sometimes comes down to one game, where is the sense rooting against Milton when we may need every win we can get?

    The Reds need a lefty in the rotation, having a healthy and effective Milton makes all the sense in the world. I say give him 3 starts and evaluate him then. In my opinion, his leash should be short if he bombs his first few starts, but I sure as heck root for him.
