    Reds' pitching

    After 11 games the staff ERA is 3.53. That should win a lot of games in 2012. The offense has to pick up. No way it stays this putrid all year. I think it is gonna be a fun summer. Yes, even despite the awful start.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I was thinking the same thing. And pitching is the name of the game.

    But if you look back on the last decade, as soon as we start hitting ----------

    Re: Reds' pitching

    Reds pitching has been absolutely great outside a few innings of Arroyo's first start, and an inning of Homer's first start. Defense helps with those numbers too.

    I just don't understand these lineups. I think we can manufacture runs if we move Rolen to the bottom, put Ludwick at clean up and let Cozart lead off.

    Cozart
    Phillips
    Votto
    Ludwick
    Bruce
    Mes/Hanigan
    Stubbs
    Rolen
    P

    Or

    Cozart
    Heisey
    Votto
    Bruce
    Phillips
    Ludwick
    Mes/Hanigan
    Rolen
    P

    This lineup will hit eventually. I agree our pitching has been stellar against some good teams so far and I too think this will be a fun summer

    also looks like Simon will stay with the big club for a while longer. Masset was shut down due to tenderness, but isn't thought to be serious..Didn't they say the same thing about Madson?? This has got me worried...Man just think how good this bullpen could have been. I mean it is already good but jeesh it could have been shut down from top to bottom.

    And I thought Masset was rested, ready and feeling fine. Great if you are looking to score on a date but horrible if you make your living throwing a baseball over 90 MPH. Three words. A little tenderness. Day to day turns into the 60-day DL.
    Madson - gone for the year.
    Masset - gone for who knows how long.
    Bray - trying to pitch his way into shape while blowing ballgames.

    It all starts with a little tenderness.

    Pitching really has been solid. They've deserved a lot of wins our bats couldn't deliver.

    After a lifetime of being a reds fan, Im saying that as soon as we start hitting the pitching will go into the tank.

    My thoughts exactly. This is why more than anything I hate seeing them wasting good pitching with the putrid offense. If they would just hitting OK, this team would seem a whole lot different.

    I have that same dreadful feeling. It comes from watching a decade's worth of putrid baseball.

    Re: Reds' pitching

    The pitching has been pretty stellar.

    The offense however will pick it up, but only when they bat our worst hitters lower in the lineup. Notice: Descalso batting 8th and Jay 7th in the Cards lineup. That would be Stubbs and Rolen for us. I know Catcher is always the 8th batter for the Reds, but let's see what Mez could do in the 4 hole and put Rolen in the 8 hole.
