    I don't think you do, cause that curve he's been flipping up there is prototypical junk. And you took exception to it being referred to as so.

    Because it's not junk. It's a really good curveball.

    What we have here is failure to communicate.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That's powerful, paralyzing, poifect, pachydoimous, percussion pitching, for the lay person.

    Arroyo is a junkballer. He throws all sorts of garbage up there.

    Wainwright is not throwing garbage.

    How is Cairo still here? How much longer will he be on this team?

    The term 'junk' is not synonymous with 'garbage', that is what you don't seem to be understanding here.

    With no one on would anyone else have let Latos go one more inning?

    Not sure why Latos was pulled? Hurt?

    97 through 5.....but he's been pretty good.
