    Reds Should Cut Their Losses With Majewski



    This guy doesn't have major league stuff. Injured or not...lets cut our losses or just endure losses. I am so distraught.

    I really don't blame him for that home run last night. I forget who the batter was but Majewski really did strike him out 3 times but the ump was blind as a bat.

    i agree with degenrate10. Those pitches were strikes or close enough to them i do no kno how delucci did not swing. Let's remember he's only a year removed from being injured give him time. You just can't throw the guy away after what we traded for him.

    Forget about what we traded, as Ted Kennedy has said many times over, that is water under the bridge, bridge? what bridge?

    He had an injury that in its mild form takes less than 5 months to rehab and be back to normal.

    He should be healed by now.
    If he is not, then it is only a matter of time before his shoulder blows up and his is out for 6-9 months or forever.
    More likely, this is as good as he is going to get. What you see is what you get, and it is not going to get the job done at this level of play.

    I have had that injury, had it surgically repaired and endured the rigorous rehab.

    I agree with those who say cut him loose. It may even put some teeth into the contention and filing that we got damaged goods in the trade. As long as he is being used in the ML rotation how can you squawk? If you release him and no one else picks him up, then

    I don't agree that he doesn't have major league stuff. I don't know quite what the problem is, but I did watch closely his first outing after he came back from Louisville. That inning he was throwing 94, what I think was probably a two-seam cut fastball, and moving it way in on right handers. That's major league stuff.

    Re: Majewski

    When i cringe when i see who's coming in from the bullpen
    thats when we need to cut a guy loose. Of course that
    wont happen because WK will make sure of it. Whatever
    his stuff is or is not, can he get batters out? Thats all that
    matters. The answer is NO

    He will be ok, he is throwing harder than he did all of last year so its just a matter of location. Last night he was being squeezed and thats what caused the HR.

    Why cut him loose? It's not like we have that much coming up behind him, and its not like we have anything to play for this season. He was an expensive get, lets see if he pans out in the long run.

    Exactly. At this point 2007 is basically a trial season to find out who we can count on going into next year.

    Not sure I'd write off 2007 yet, as improbable as that sounds. This division is not very good, just like last year--something that made Krivsky and others think we had a chance, which, in fact, we did, even though the club was not very good. There are slow but steady signs of improvement in this team lately, and right now a rotation of Harang, Arroyo, Lohse, Bailey, Belisle is pretty good. The bullpen too is getting a little better. The process is slow and painful but the improvement is real. I think you keep Majewski because he's got wicked stuff. It's just a matter of time with him, IMHO.

    Re: Majewski

    My confidence in McBeth on the mound > Majewski on the mound.

    McBeth's confidence in himself to get MLB hitters out > than Majewski's self confidence.

    Not to be negative, but it just looks like he is expecting to get tatooed out there. I have never seen a less confident pitcher on the mound as far as his demeanor.
