    Who's Got a WHIP Under 1.00?

    Well, if you answered any of Cueto, Harang, Cordero, Lincoln, Mercker or Burton, you are correct.

    But the best answer is the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff.

    What's the best way for a pitching staff to be successful pitching in GABP with our current defense?

    Strike out lots of batters and minimize the walks and baserunners.

    Which we are doing.

    The STAFF has a WHIP under 1. That is just sick even if its only 10 games in.

    Wow! It can't hold up, but it is a really nice early indicator of the current talent. When have the Reds had such pitching potential? Maybe the early 1960's?

    Just think if we still had Germano. 2 Starts. ERA 0.00, Whip .77

    Yeah, I'd say so. It certainly is different than what we've been used to.
