    Gun's got him between 90-93, his velocity is fine.

    Which gun? Brantley on radio says he's topping out at 88 most of the time. If it's the gun on TV, it's been wrong all year.

    I hope it's wrong because if he is in at 91-93 and still getting killed, he really does have a serious problem.

    I can't believe that it was Dusty who made the judgment to reinstate Harang. My guess is that it was the doctors and the GM who had the most say. With Harang's contract, I'm sure Walt didn't leave this decision to the manager.

    These look like rehab starts, Harang obviously isn't pitching well enought to win at the major league level. Somebody misjudged his readiness.

    Do the Reds have your resume? You are a shoo in for a job in the front office!

    I remember Elvis death.....beacuse of the quote from Johnny Rotten..."Good riddance to bad rubbish."

    I think Harang could have been stretched for 5 to get at least get a shot for the win.

    I was at Myrtle Beach on the fateful day. Single and having a great time. My two buddies and I had just made dates with 3 young ladies from Concord, NC for the night to go club hopping. The news of Elvis' death caused them to be so bummed that they cancelled, we went to see that new movie "Star Wars" and the rest is history.

    BTW, the Reds beat San Diego that night 5-1, with Tom Seaver pitching a 5-hit complete game to go to 13-5. The only run scored against him was unearned on an error by, of all people, Johnny Bench.

    I'd have never remembered all of this is wasn't for the demise of the King.
