    Baker oves his energy, the reds will figure to use him as a pinch hitter they willoffer the guy a two year deal essentially bidding against thremselves and will be stcuk with another useless retrad

    that's...uhm...easy for you to say, I guess.

    Looks hard to type, though.

    You are really hating on the guy. No one said he was coming up here to save the season. He's battled and has pitched well in 7 of his games. I'm not saying we should sign him to a multi-year deal, but if we can get him on the cheap and put him in AAA, why not?

    All good starts until last night and now the negativity arrives. I bet some of you have just been oozing for the chance.

    I usually agree with you, but check out Willis' last few starts , he usually pitches well enough to lose

    Dontrelle started off fine but, please, cut with the "this is his first bad start" nonsense.

    Dontrelle's first six starts: 37.0IP 35H 14ER 12BB 27K 3.41ERA 2.9BB/9 1.27 WHIP
    Dontrelle's last six starts: 32.2IP 40H 25ER 23BB 24K 6.89ERA 6.6BB/9 1.93 WHIP

    Like most pitchers, if Dontrelle doesn't have his control he is going to get rocked. And that's what his problem has been the last few seasons, a lack of control. Are these last six games a blip on the radar or is Dontrelle reverting back to form? Because I certainly don't want the Willis of the last three seasons in the Reds starting rotation.

    I was riding the D-train hard until his last 5-6 starts, I'm off now unless he wants to spot-start at a minimum price.
