    We can give this Simon guy more than one inning before we write him off.

    He gives up the 2 run homer and then strikes out the side. Looked dominant.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    They will keep him after he strikes out 3. He will sit though for a while. Next time he pitches I guess he will strike out the first 2, Dusty will grin and then he gives up 3 straight Homeruns. Hopefully, Dusty will be smiling while checking his iPad on an off day while on milb.tv. Simon is the new Fischer!!!

    They could handle it, if he did not make pitching changes when the pitcher bats second the following inning every time.

    Lecure, on the other hand, is an innings eater. Some folks on here want him to pitch the late innings, no way IMO. He's too hittable.

    Reds should score 8 runs when Nolasco pitches. I wish the team had a lefty righty platoon in LF with a tough lefty hitter facing guys like Nolasco. I think it would really help against pitchers like this.
    He does not need to get used to throwing strikes.....he has to do that no matter what park he is in.

    I can deal with the loss....but i do not trust Arroyo at all.

    The excuses for not hitting bad pitchers has to stop eventually.

    Reds don't hit some righties because they lack lefty hitting. Not an excuse, just the obvious fact that should have been rectified this off-season, but was not.

    Hopefully games like this will show some fans that relievers matter. This was a two run ballgame before Messrs. Lecure and Simon got their hands on it.

    When I think that some fans wanted to go with a pen with no Madson, no Masset, and no Chapman -- and said it was a fine bullpen -- I have to laugh.

    Middle of the order (Rolen, Bruce, Heisey) are 1-9.

    Now the question in hindsight. Do you leave in Latos for at least one more inning? He was having trouble finding the zone, not getting torched by every batter.

    Heisey will need to hit RHP. He's done so in the past. If not, the Reds will need to replace him with a lefty platoon bat in LF.
