    Something I've just noticed

    I don't know if any of you guys have picked up on this, but I've noticed that our bullpen isn't very good.

    I've got an eye for these kind of details.

    That is all.

    That's Ebert and Roeper on the Cincy bullpen.

    I hadn't noticed.
    "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."

    Thanks.

    I watch a lot of games, and I knew something was up. I just haven't been able to put my finger on it.

    Then tonight, it hit me. One of those moments of profound revelation. You know, kinda like "hey, that stovetop gets really hot" or "gee, those potholders aren't just for sissies".

    And I said to myself... "self, our bullpen isn't very good". And I immediately thought I should come on here and share this theory with you guys.

    Are you sure? Do you have anything to back this up, or is it just a hunch.

    I don't want to get all technical on you, or anything.

    So, let's just say it's a hunch. That would save me a lot of trouble scanning my charts and graphs, and stuff.

    Well surprise surprise.

    FWIW, only one guy showed any ability out there tonight from a future standpoint. Coffey needs to be deep sixed for the rest of the season for whatever reason it is(loss of confidence or injury). He is a joke about everytime he pitches and needs to be saved from that.

    On the bright side (I had to look hard to find it)... :

    * The bullpen had a 7-1 record in July. They are 1-0 in August. They are 8-2 in their last 10 decisions.
    >> Guess a W-L record can be deceiving...

    * The last time the REDS lost a game with a blown save was June 29. That was 31 games ago. They have won the game the last 6 times they had a blown save.
    >> Blown saves are NOT a good thing...
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Well, it's official. RFS has entered the early stages of dementia.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
