    Bray has looked great this spring. I think he's going to have a breakout season, and that will be huge for this bullpen because he has the stuff to retire lefties and righties.

    Those willing to chuck Belisle: I give you: Josh Fogg.

    Different style, same results. Belisle will actually have to have a good season before I buy into his "unlucky" tag.

    I don't think he's "unlucky" either. But he was able to K some while keeping his BB numbers fairly low. He's better than Fogg, and honestly, folks wanting to dump Belisle after a bad spring training are just asking for it.

    This team does not have the luxury of dealing rotation arms. I don't care how excited all of us are about Cueto and Volquez.

    Belisle's an option; Fogg is an emergency flotation device.

    Whatever decision is made for Opening Day will be a fluid one. If Fogg bombs like you fear then Belisle will be given a chance. The way I see it our #5 spot looks pretty ugly no matter who we put there and that's pretty much the case throughout the league.

    If it is between Fogg and Belisle, I would lean toward putting Belisle in the pen because he has had some success there and can fill the long role. Fogg has generally been a starter, a bad one, but a starter nonetheless. In other words, until Belisle proves different, he may be of more value in the pen and he and Fogg are a push in the rotation. I also have had Belisle on my own personal trading block and still wouldn't mind putting him and Freel together in a deal.

    Chris Welsh this morning on 1530 said he thinks Belisle will either open the season in Louisville or the DL. He doesn't expect him in Cincinnati. He says they've shut him down for a few days and that's unusual unless they're watching some injury

    Matt needs to pull a Rodney Dangerfield from Caddyshack. "Oh, my arm!"
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
