    What is this strange term you call "left handed starter"?

    He's definitely earned it...there's no doubt about it.

    Expectations are low...but outside of his actual "stuff," he does have a lot of the other intangibles. I hope he throws a no-hitter. The Reds need him to pitch well.

    Not sure why everybody took what I said as a shot at Maloney, but ok.

    He'll have his chance. He does well enough, and he could be the one to stay when Volquez comes back.

    I know what you are saying, but to take Owing's spot in the rotation Maloney is going to have to post an xFIP south of 5.00 due to Owings's bat...

    That's fair. My point is that Maloney doesn't have to be Cy Young on the mound to justify why people were calling for him. I get very, very tired of people implying that anyone calling for a AAA guy is viewing said AAA guy as some savior.

    Agreed. Pretty much every poster I've seen has gone out of their way to say Maloney's not a savior, but rather a guy who's earned his shot. It'll be tough, but I'd really like to see a guy who's paid his dues succeed.

    Unfortunately for Maloney, his Major League debut is for the Reds, and not against them.
