Tom Shearn again. For a guy with "nothing" as many on the board have criticized, he sure keeps pitching decently. I'm a fan of his - the guy knows how to pitch using what he has - or as some might say, what he doesn't have. He's aggressive, doesn't pitch 'cute', and is making the most of his opportunity. Am I crazy enough to think he'll be as successful a second ad third time through the league? Nope. But I do think he'll be a better 5th starter option than Livingston or Dumatrait, or some dreck acquisition like Saarloos. The more he starts the more he looks like a viable option. Call it smoke, mirrors, or claim its simply his first time against teams but I can't help rooting for the guy. If Maloney, Bailey and Cueto can produce a solid starter among them then the Reds may be able to put together a decent rotation with one GOOD acquisition in the off-season.
Lambast Shearn, I enjoy it all the more every time he wins.
