    The End of Eric Milton as a Red?

    Was this his last start?

    We can only hope.

    I think it's a safe bet.

    He can share a cab with Castro and Stanton.

    The team cannot seriously pretend that they want to contend this year by sending him out there every 5th day. He may be the best guy in the world and I have defended him against some here in the past but the guy gives the team zero chance of winning.

    Although it seems like a safe bet, do we have any evidence of that?

    I can't believe he has pitched a no-hitter in his career.

    I really hope this is his last start as a Red but I won't hold my breath. Blue isn't a good color for me.

    He used to throw around 94, now he is throwing around 86-88.

    I realize he used to be a better pitcher, it's just hard to believe after what we have seen of him in a Reds uniform.

    They won't get rid of Milton. We'll be stuck with him for the rest of the season unless they put him on the DL.

    Or if he starts giving up more runs then innings pitched, apparently if he keeps it at 1 an inning he's doing "ok"

    The team hasn't shown much in the way of improving the team. Contract extensions, sure. But not by adding real deal talent.

    End, what are you talking about??? He should be a regular pinch hitter.

    Uncle Milty is much better with the bat than he is on the mound. It certainly isn't saying much, though.
