    Maloney question

    Why was everyone calling Maloney a "soft" throwing lefty? He was in the 90-91 range with his 4-seamer all night. His breaking stuff isn't all that fast, but it is not suppose to be. Fact is that because of the way a lefty's arm slot usually is, the 90-91 looks like 95. That is why when Price in TB throws 96-98 it looks like 100. Santana is not called soft throwing. Just because you don't throw mid 90s doesn't mean soft throwing.

    Amen, I only watched highlights and he looked great. Also, it seems opposing teams might want to hit it where Dickerson ain't.
    Hey Homer! If you can put it together, you'll put the Reds over the top....think about it.

    Maloney looked good, and that was with being squeezed heavily by the home plate ump.
