    Serriously, why rush Harrang. Dude is a super tallented arm....why push it if he isn't ready?
    I think Harang is a gamer and he would give the same effort whether it is in Cincy or Billings.

    True.

    Then again, he'd be facing batters that wouldn't require as much effort to retire. Give him more time to shake off the rust, get his timing back, etc without having to give max effort.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I can agree with that. Whether or not there is a material difference would be hard to quantify.

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

    Harang's slider is gone. And he's rolling up the slow curve on a platter. Fastball has topped out at 92.

    Sure glad they decided against more rehab....

    Another rehab start would not have done much harm to Louisville's nine-game lead in the standings.

    With Harang pitching today, Volquez got two extra days rest. Keep the veterans in the rotation now, cut back on the work for Cueto and Volquez. That's the right way to go.

    Harang has to pitch someplace. This is like another spring training for him, let hime pitch some innings with the Reds. I expect that after two or three starts he'll be better. Don't know if he'll be the Harang of old, hopefully he'll be fully back next year.

    The Reds are getting no hit by Wandy Rodriguez...a guy, who on the road, hasn't fared very well.
