    Amazing how Reds fans can't let go of Dusty's use of Wood and Prior. The two pitchers have, they don't seem to blame Dusty.

    Someday, maybe, the Reds will actually be contending to win a pennant again. There will be pressure to use the team's best pitchers for long outings to win games.

    When a team is lousy, it's easy to say "pull the pitcher, he's thrown his 90 pitches, we don't want him to be overworked." It's much harder when the team is good and trying to win.

    Johan Santana was pulled in a few games this year and bullpen blew it. So now, the Mets more often let him go the distance to pin down games. They would like to save the pitcher's arm, but the Mets' primary interest is winning.

    I know I shouldn't be, but I am completely stunned that Gary Majewski is still on this team. Why in the world do they continue to keep him around? He needs to be released.

    I am sure that Jocketty can find better.

    Fogg, Majewski, Patterson, Bako.

    Reds world might be a brighter place without them.

    You shouldn't be. It's Aug. 23. The season was over for the reds a long time ago. You can expand rosters Sep 1, if you want to take a load of some of your pitchers. The time for releasing guys is long over.

    The minor league system has been disrupted enough with all the call ups, trades and injuries. You play out the string...and an 8-0 game is EXACTLY where you use a guy like Maj.

    Yep. Why would you subject a kid like Roenicke to multiple-inning outings for no good reason in a season that got flushed months ago?
