    Where do we stand on Lehr?

    Yeah, I gotta bring it up after the shutout...

    How do you see Lehr playing out...
    Do the Reds have anything to work with here...
    Is he a once around the league type of guy...

    Mind as well have a discussion about it.

    He's probably nothing, but then the Reds have a lot of that in the pitching department. Maybe eventually if you have enough nothing it becomes something.

    Lehr for pitching coach.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    He's a better looking version of Tom Shearn.

    I have to say, I really enjoyed this performance. Lehr did his best not to get himself in trouble, and kept pounding the strikezone. Some nights, that means nothing more than being pounded for 2+ innings, but tonight it led to a 4 hitter.

    One of the highlights of the season for me, and a great story that Lehr can tell his grandkids.

    Shouldn't we give him the Michalak grace period before we figure out where we stand?

    It was fun to watch.

    Ride that horse until he gives out.

    Happy for him?

    I mean, he's not a long term option. He's not even a three year plan option. He's just a guy that's worked his butt off his whole career and because of certain circumstances is getting his reward for all he's put into the game. Tremendous moment for him tonight. Whatever "it" is, that's what's it's all about.

    I hate having a name such as Michalak purged from my memory and then you have to go and mention him.

    Exactly. No reason to believe it was anything more than one good start but we have nothing to lose so we should just let him keep making starts. His ceiling seems to be #5 starter but that's nothing to discard.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We might get to see more starts. Nothing to decide right now.

    Personally, I've been a Lehr fan for a while. And BTW, he pitches well out of the pen too.

    22 first pitch strikes!! how many of the core pitchers have done that?? I hope he continues to do well, maybe gets the #5 spot for good

    Who knows, but at least be happy for him before tossing him away.

    That was nice, don't get me wrong.

    But two starts: 13 IP, 4 K and 7 BB. We know where this story is going right?

    Owings wants to skip a rehab start and take the ball next Tuesday in St. Louis. Marty thought that hinged on Lehr's outing tonight. Should be an interesting spin of the rotation this weekend for Bailey, Homer and Cueto, Johnny.

    Personally I would send Owings to the bullpen for the time being. No sense in pushing his balky shoulder.
    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.

    No, we don't.
