    Stunning statistic

    The Red's bullpen through 5 games (4-1)
    13 Innings Pitched
    4 Hits
    0 Runs
    13 K's
    4 BB's (note: 3 from major league debut Burton)


    How long will this perfection last? I've been stunned by this pitching staff, who's going to leave when Guardado, Bray and Majewski return..?

    It's always about the bullpen. If I were to build a baseball team, this would be the part with which I would be most obsessed.

    I don't think the Reds' is there yet, but the (small sample size) stats make me pretty giddy anyway.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    If our bullpen ERA is under 3.5 at the All-Star break....we will be in 1st place.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Sure will be. That would be amazing to have a bullpen that strong.

    Re: Stunning statistic

    Anyone have any theories as to why they are pitching so well? Cold weather? Pitching coach? Depth? I have no idea.

    Cold weather, impatient opponents, small sample size, and maybe, on a good day, with a fair wind, a bit of talent.

    If our starters keep logging 6+ innings, our pen stays fresh.

    If our pen stays fresh, the improved arms can continue to show their strength.

    If the pen stays strong, we stay where we are in standings!!!

    Having pitching strength ROCKS!!!!

    Got to agree here. They are pitching over their heads, IMO.

    If they are still looking strong in June, I'll be buying this bullpen.

    Only roughly 500 more innings to go....

    Perhaps it also helps to play against the two teams with the worst records in the NL during the 2006 season. Things change from year to year, but Pittsburgh (67-95) and Chicago (66-96) were the worst in the NL last year. The next closest to them in 2006 was Washington (71-91)... 4 games better.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    O runs is little misleading, b/c IIRC Coffey gave up 2 runs to score when he came in a game. not sure which game and if this has happened in any other games.
