    What do you think the difference was? And is his stuff good enough to make him a decent starter in the bigs?

    It was good enough in 2009. He was pretty easily hittable in 2010. Maybe he lost some movement. Not really sure what the difference was. I'd like to have him a Louisville for an extended amount of time to see what Teddy could do for him.

    His fastball didn't have quite the same velocity as it did in 2009. Down a notch or two. Stuff wise, even at his best, he probably was a #4/5, but with the depth the Reds have, he probably isn't getting a chance unless it just happens to be his turn and he is the only guy available and he's been pitching lights out. At the very least you have to think Leake/Wood, LeCure and Maloney are ahead of him on the totem pole for starters from AAA at getting a shot in the majors.
