    Mark Reynolds would drive the natives insane. Especially Marty.

    Not 5th in the NL?

    They're sixth in the NL, eighth in the majors today. Like a fat person rolling down the stairs in slow-motion.

    This staff is just poor enough. Better, but clearly not ready for prime time.

    And the problem seems to be that there's nothing waiting in the wings to make them ready for prime time.

    I thought Harang could and would be our true staff ace, but unfortunately he's not.

    I still haven't made up my mind about Cueto and Volquez, since they're the only other in-house options we have that have a remote chance to be a true staff ace.

    One bad game and now the pitching staff is bad. Where were these posts after Arroyo held the Astros to one run? Or after Cueto held the Brewers to three runs? Even the best pitching staffs in the game have their share of bad games throughout the season.

    Harang entered last night with a 3.36 ERA, which was good enough for 13th in the NL. He had a bad night, it happens. He's back to his normal self, which is 200+ innings of above average baseball and being one of the more underrated pitchers in baseball, especially in the eyes of his own fanbase.

    Josh Willingham has posted a 1.018 OPS for May, while earning more playing time. It is going to take more than Matt Maloney to get him now.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Reynolds is an error machine and is on his way to another 200 K season.

    I would rather see what Stubbs can do before trading him for someone like Reynolds.

    Best starting pitching that the Reds have had in years and some people continue to rail against the staff. Amazing. I'm with you, OBM.

    Harang's stuff looked pretty average tonight and for the most part he has looked pretty average all year. I would imagine that 3.36 ERA will be rising pretty steadily for the rest of the year especially with the league batting .290off of him.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    That says more about how bad the staff has been over the last few years than it does the posters.

    I disagree with that. I think Harang's stuff has looked just fine. It looks the same to me as it did two years ago. He currently has a 15 BB/61 K ratio, so he's obviously doing something right.

    Yes. Improved is one thing, good is another, and "ready for prime time" is a third. I would say the Reds staff is between choices 1 and 2 now...
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Man I'm glad I wasn't around here in 2001. When the pitching staff was actually bad. I can't imagine what was said about that staff
