    Decaff: Reds tried to take my best pitch

    Anyone read this from Todd Coffey?

    "I'm glad to be away from the Reds because they tried to take away my sinker, my best pitch," said Coffey, released by the Reds last year on his birthday.
    Thoughts, anyone? I seem to recall the reason they released him was because his best pitch was usually sinking in the gap or outside the park.

    As the Reds announcers said tonight, the pitch was usually sinking into the Ohio River. Coffey was completely ineffective last season and there was no reason to bring him back.

    Glad to see Coffey runs his mouth as well as he runs from the dugout

    I've been listening to the games on the radio. Does Coffey still do that ridiculous sprint to the mound? It's no wonder he couldn't throw strikes. It takes him two batters just to catch his breath.

    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    We were definitely getting Decaf at the end of his stay here.

    With those comments, its no wonder he's gone - he obviously thinks he knows more than the coaches. His sinker should have been called the Stinker, imo. His "sinker" often times didn't sink until it went over the wall.

    See ya at the end of the season, Todd. We'll see where you are then.

    The Reds are glad to be rid of you because you have a case of dumptruck butt. You're not a pitcher, you are a donut.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    If Seth McClung would grow some facial hair, he and Coffey could be twins. Probably about 500 pounds worth.

    Todd Coffee might be the only player in the bigs with manbreasts.
