    Re: Why is Stanton still here?

    I think the Reds best hope is that Stanton realizes he is done and retires (at least at the end of the year). If he has any ounce of self-respect, you'd think he'd hang it up instead of getting his brains bashed in for another year. It can't be fun for him anymore. Of course, over the past 5 or so years he's been going through these kind of stretches and then he pulls out of it long enough for teams to think he is valuable. The Reds have 2 viable young lefties in Cout, Bray, and Gosling. If they find some starting help, Dumatrait could possibly be a 4th option out of the pen. I think Everyday Eddie is done, although I'd give him a shot in spring training to see if his arm strength comes back. I don't know how soon they have to decide on his option.

    Do you really think that he or his agent is going to walk away quietly and give up
    $3,500,000 dollars?

    I agree with you that he should be gone, but as his agent would say, "hey, they signed the deal too"

    We needed Stanton at the beginning of the year with the mess our bullpen was in, but he have seen certain players on the Reds team and in AAA show they are superior alternatives. Stanton must realize that without major improvement, this is his last year in baseball.

    I know a lot of people are down on Stanton, but we do need to remember that he is a stand up guy and gives his best effort each outing. It's not his fault that he keeps getting run out there.

    True, but he's not to be absolved from his messes either. As poorly as he's been pitching this year, he deserves all the criticism he gets, IMO.

    Wow if it was all Stanton's fault he must be worse than I realized, considering he gave up three runs and the Reds lost by four.

    Stanton is not good, everyone knows it, you post the same thing about him every day. The guy didn't even pitch today and this thread still gets started. Get over it.

    Pete MacKanin isnt an option? He had more of a hand in not getting the sweep than anyone did. Pulling the starter after 5 innings and less than 70 pitches

    Stanton is not consistently bad. Is he the most dependable guy in the NL central? Of course not. But he has had long periods in which he's gotten the job done quite nicely.
