    Bus Ticket to Louisville for Coffey?

    Wow way to turn a win into a blowout loss....Todd needs to go down and get his crap together. Time to bring back Majewski.
    Hoping for another Reds October

    Cormier was the guy who turned it into a blowout. Why he was left in to face Lane is beyond my comprehension.

    Agreed, I'm 10x madder at the Cormier thing than Coffey.

    Coffey should not be used as the set-up man right now though. As I said in the game thread, this is exactly like June of last year when Weathers was getting lit up on a daily basis and Narron was still running him out everyday.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    No, but he should get demoted to mop up duty until he gets his confidence back. Dude just loses everything when a runner gets on base.

    Bill Bray needs to get healthy. Not sure how he'll be, but he's not Cormier. It's a start.

    I can't speak for everyone but MRoby and I hope he gets sent down.

    Vicor Santos is a mirage...odds are he will be roadkill in a little while.

    Re: Bus Ticket to Louisville for Coffey?

    No doubt Coffey has struggled this season, but it's still only been 8 innings. Way too trigger happy to send him to the minors.

    It was a poor idea to let him pitch 3 games in a row. I figured pitching him yesterday was a good idea to let him get things together in an easy situation. With 2 innings to go, I thought Saarloos and Weathers were the obvious guys to use in the 8th and 9th innings, and if you need a lefty for a batter, then Coutlangus was probably the best option seeing Stanton was used 2 innings last night.

    Not Narron's best night IMO. Coffey and Cormier suffered because they were not put in the right situations to succeed.

    Um not really. His 8.64 era and three hit batters in two innings leads me to believe he needs to go down to work on his control. Cormier needs to be dfa'd as soon as Bray is ready giving us 10 days to trade him (for a broken jugs gun?)

    For me, Coffey being sent down is not in the actual pitching, but the 3 hit batsmen. It's a huge sign of immaturity. One nice thing is that Narron will not be allowed any love affairs with poorly performing pitchers this year--we've got the arms. Sorry Jerry, one to a bathroom.

    It's not like he's trying to do it.

    It's a sign that he's having some trouble harnessing his stuff, or that he's trying too hard.
