    Bray gets a save, but sure not a pretty one.

    Bray learned to close from Weathers.

    Make it interesting, but get the job done.

    Bray's been shaky.

    Guardado really threw well. Worth a look next year?

    Cards leave the bases loaded in the 9th,...rally falls short and Cubs win 5-3.

    It won't cost that much. He'll agree to a more reasonable deal, maybe with incentives.

    Maybe the Reds should stop trying to win with pitchers who are up there in age and at the end of their careers...

    Try something different...it hasn't worked.

    Tom Shearn? Unreal what the guy has done in his starts. I would not have bet any amount of money on it when he got called up. Gotta give the guy credit.

    * 4GS, 24IP, 18H, 9ER, 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP.
    >> 3-0 record.
    >> REDS are 3-1 in his starts... no thanks to Majewski & Guardado.

    * 3 quality starts.
    (1) 7IP, 4H, 3ER.
    (2) 6IP, 3H, 0ER.
    (3) 6.2IP, 4H, 3ER.
    >> 19.2IP, 11H, 6ER, 2.75 ERA.

    I know, I know... it is Tom Shearn. But still.

    Re: 9-14-07 @ Beermakers

    Just watched my TiVo of the game. The Reds took a big lead and let the Brewers whittle away at it. The difference in the two teams at this stage in the season is the bullpen. Our starter gave up three runs late, but left with a 5-3 lead. We finally tack one one to make it 6-3 and Bray does the unthinkable and allows the 2-run HR to make it close. Our bullpen allows 2 hits and 2 runs in 2 1/3 innings. Their starting pitcher allows 5 runs in 3 innings and their bullpen pitches 6 innings of 5-hit, one run ball. It allowed Milwaukee to catch up.

    As I see it, we need two starters and a closer for 2008. No way Weathers should be closing for another year. Bray is not the answer--no swagger and little confidence (as is to be expected with this youngster). Guardado isn't either, no matter how well he pitched tonight. The starters and closer should be Wayne's mission in the off season. We'll see how he does.
