    Fangraphs looks at 2011 Reds Rotation

    Sometimes, having too many starting pitchers is a good problem to have, and the Cincinnati Reds appear to be stuck in this rut. While the Redsí rotation wonít get much attention compared to that of other NL teams like the Phillies and the Giants, they should head into 2011 with a serviceable rotation.
    And now the rest of the story: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index...wded-rotation/
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Thanks for posting this. Wood is a strange pitcher in the way he gives up low numbers of HR's, while being more os a fly ball pitcher without a lot of ground balls. But he's been that way consistently. He has a knack for getting guys to slightly miss, with a lot of weak fly balls.

    Even though the Reds rotation looks over-loaded, it always works out that at least one guy is either injured or ineffective. If everyone is truly healthy, I could see Leake in AAA. He could benefit from a little time there and then be ready for the Reds when needed.

    It really worries me. You never want your starting pitcher giving up a lot of fly balls. Hopefully he cuts down on that, this year.
