    RBI double by Hannigan, 3-0 Reds, scores Kroski, who drove in a run, and Castro, who walked.

    Jackson tries to pick off Hopper at first, throws it in the dirt, Freel scores from third. WOW. Edwin Jackson is terrible. He was one of the most talked about uber prospects back in the day. My, oh my, how things change

    I'm SO not a fan of Belisle .... and its not just these spring training bombs... but when you add those in.. I really hope he doesn't make the rotation - I'd rather have Fogg.. :-(

    I've never really been a fan of Belisle in the rotation, although I think he can be a good pen guy like he was.

    I really hope you're not being serious when you say that.

    Um, Matt Belisle throws more strikes than most, at least if we're talking about his in-season norm. If you want to say he's too hittable, that's fine, but not throwing strikes isn't a problem he's got.

    We also ought to consider what Belisle's out there to do today. Baker put him in the rotation at the start of camp and what he's probably doing today is working on a few wrinkles. Quite frankly, for pitchers with a rotation slot in the bag, early March starts are meaningless.

    We were assured all winter that Belisle was going to be fine this year due to FIP, DIPS and every other metric under the sun.

    Don't worry. All is well.

    Well, we've heard all winter that his problem is bad luck. Maybe his luck will turn this year. I think he needs to mix his pitches better, fool more hitters, and make better pitches with men on base.

    Even if he starts the season in the rotation, as is likely, Belisle needs to perform this year because soon there will be Cueto, Bailey, Volquez, maybe Maloney vying for his spot in the rotation.

    Today it is...and yes, he's too hittable.

    To his credit, the jams he's gotten himself into, he's gotten himself out of so far.
