    Weathers looks done.

    That's all I got. Maybe he's got something left in the tank, but it sure doesn't look that way to me.

    My friend, it's one game. Weathers gave up the winning run, but he's not why we lost the game. If there was anyone in that dugout that could hit, we would've coasted.

    People have been saying he looks done for a few years now.

    Re: Weathers looks done.

    I think he pitched one inning too many tonight. His tank was fine in the 9th.

    Agree on everything you say.

    I'm just judging by what he's been throwing over his appearances to this point, not just this one outing.

    Lots of attention and talk paid to the pitching in the last year; not enough to offense.

    I understand where you're coming from. He just doesn't have the ability to miss bats at this point. Also, his fastball doesn't seem to have as much movement on it, I don't think I've seen one fastball catch the inside corner for strike three yet this year, which has been his specialty the last few years.

    But with that being said, Weathers is the least of my worries right now. We can minimize his role in the bullpen, unfortunately we can't hide our black hole of an offense.

    He wasn't that great last season. He's a year older. It might work out; I wouldn't count on it.

    Re: Weathers looks done.

    I predict Weathers K rate won't hit 4.5/9IP this year.

    Let's hope he's BABIP lucky, because he doesn't miss any bats.

    Re: Weathers looks done.

    when you don't miss bats you end up relying heavily on luck and defense.

    I swear, I never posted it last year. He just looks like he has lost quite a bit since the previous season. Maybe if they limit his exposure to single innings he'll fare better more consistently.

    I don't know; I think he just looks "lost".

    Re: Weathers looks done.

    Weathers is one of my favorite Reds. But he cannot go multiple ininngs. He couldn't last year and he obviously cannot this year. He looks like a different pitcher after one inning. He did last year. He is much more effective in a single inning.

    I know it. Anyone following his performance last year knows it. Why didn't the manager and pitching coach know it tonight?

    I didn't see the game. Maybe there was some reason for leaving Weathers in for the tenth inning. Maybe he had an easy ninth, I don't know.

    But as a general rule, Weathers works one inning. Period.

    Re: Weathers looks done.

    But he led the NL in multi inning saves last year.

    I think getting him through two innings is fine. He gave up three singles, none of which was exactly torched.
    He had one appearance when he walked the bases loaded, and he's had two appearances where he's gone zip zip zip.

    So what's the difference from last year.
