But yeah, you're right. He's not completely chopped liver. IIRC, he throws hard and if he's locating he can be a bare. But given the fact the Reds demolished a pitcher with a MUCH better track record just two days ago - and just about every pitcher they've seen the last couple weeks - I'll take my chances on the Reds getting to him today.
I mean hell, Miguel Cairo's probably good for a couple dingers, right?
