    My favorite Red during the 05 to 08 era. I give him one chance to show me what he's got next week...he's earned it.

    How amazing would it be if he came back looking like his old self...

    I'd love to see it. That would be huge right now.

    With Leake going on the DL, and Volquez struggling of late, Aaron Harang putting up a quality start would be huge.

    Good luck Aaron!

    It would be nice to see him have at least one decent start in Louisville first. His stats on rehab just aren't good enough to bring him back before he is ready. Even if he is ready I don't see him being a post season pitcher i would want to throw out there, he just isn't the same pitcher anymore.

    He'd be eligible for the postseason regardless. Players on the DL are eligible.

    How can anybody think this is a good idea? He's getting lit up in AAA right now.

    There you have it folks. The Reds can afford to give Harang a start, any quality organization is going to do that in August.

    Rather it be Tuesday than Friday-Sunday... But it seems like if he does start on Tuesday he will fall in line for the start on Sunday.

    10 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 homer allowed in 11 innings.

    That's not exactly getting 'lit up' by most people's standards.

    If you want to stretch it to say he has a fluke .382 BABIP in an extremely small sample and that, because of that, 62 percent of the baserunners he allowed scored in those 11 innings... well OK then. But lit up? That's something that is absolutely unsupported.

    It's not unsupported. I've been hearing about Harang's unlucky BABIP for two years now. The fact of the matter is he makes some God awful pitches and he doesn't get away with it.

    He's made two starts:
    6 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
    6 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

    A 9 ERA in AAA is getting lit up by anyone's standard's.

    By comparison, Volquez had a 1.96 ERA in AAA in 23 innings while giving up 11 hits, walking 8, and striking out 21.

    There's no reason to replace Volquez with Harang right now.

    I would argue that the San Francisco performance would dictate that we replace Volquez with my kid sister. Thats a stretch of course, but you've gotta at least concede Volquez is struggling mightly. To which I say, lets give Aaron one last go-round.

    No doubt, I just don't think Harang is the answer to any question right now.
