It must be a coincidence that every time Javy starts a game, the pitcher has an off day. After two great starts caught by Ross, Belisle has had two bad ones -- caught by Valentin. After two not-so-good starts by Lohse -- caught by Valentin-- he's had two great starts caught by Ross. Finally, you'll never guess who caught Harang's two "good" starts, and who caught his two subpar starts. This accounts for all six of Valentin's starts to date. It's definitely a pattern.
It's starting to look like there's a case to be made for David Ross as an outstanding handler of pitchers, whose offense should be considered a bonus, like a Molina (except he can't throw as well or make plays at the plate, ever. But neither can Javy.) Just something to think about before calling for his head -- David Ross may be a big reason why the Reds' starting pitching doesn't suck.
