    10-8 going to the bottom of the ninth.

    Broxton is basically a one-inning pitcher because of his surgery and durability, except in isolated cases. So if you bring him in during the 7th, you're usually guaranteed of needing someone for the 8th.

    However, if you bring in Marshall, you can be a lot more versatile and keep him in for two innings depending on the lineup, whether the Reds score in the 7th/8th, etc. I think by having Marshall in the 7th, the Reds can play against high leverage much better than if they did it the other way around.
    That's exactly how I would play it. I would just use Arredondo or Masset for the 8th going through September and October.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    CF Jackson collided with SS Castro. LF Soriano had to retrieve the ball and return it to the infield.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    If Masset is healthy, he would be a tremendous lift to the bullpen (it would take away leverage innings from Ondrusek). That said, I trust Broxton a whole heck of a lot more than Arredondo and his nearly 5 1/2 walks per nine innings.

    Are we currently watching the nastiest arm in the history of this franchise?

    I'm concerned it is getting too late for Masset to ramp it up into top form this year.

    Last time he was in top form was 2009.

    You ain't lying.



    I give credit to you guys who stuck around. I turned off the TV when the Reds went up 9-6 because I KNEW it was going to be like that.
    "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."
