    Re: Reds sign Armando Galarraga

    Reds lost an apparent insurance policy when right-hander Armando Galarraga left Monday’s AAA game with an apparent arm injury in the fourth inning.
    Apparently.

    Re: Reds sign Armando Galarraga

    If it is an arm injury, that seems strange. The trainer came out and looked at his fingers, like a blister issue was coming up.

    With 1 out and 1 on in the 4th, he throws a pitch, then looks at his hand and appears to pick at his finger. The next pitch was ball 4. The trainer and coach then come out for a visit.The visit lasted for about 10 seconds and they didn't appear to look at anything. He stayed in the game. The next pitch was a grounder to short that should have turned two, but Soto couldn't scoop the throw at first. Galarraga was looking at his hand while the play was going on. Trainer comes back out, looks at the hand, Galarraga points to his finger. He is pulled.

    Who needs these sportwriters when we have Doug! Obviously his info is more accurate.

    Thanks for the clarification, pal. This is definitely RZ's greatest strength

    Fay is so condescending to anyone asking him questions.... I do not know why anyone even tries to engage with him.

    Defense mechanism. Doesn't want anyone else to know he watches Thomas the Train on Netflix while the game is in progress.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I (forget the exact details) remember in spring training he tweeted some stat lamenting how poor the starters were performing. Then someone asked him if this should be a concern or if a pitcher's job was in jeopardy and Fay jumped all over that saying it was only spring training.

    I'm not cruel enough to want Fay to be out of work, but I think he needs to be moved to the classified department.

    Fay is so lazy and lackadaisical with his job. He acts like covering the Reds is such a chore. It would be the dream job for lots of people. He needs to show some enthusiasm and some gumption or else give someone else a chance.

    He's pretty sensitive on Twitter and needs to pick his battles. He also does get some really dumb questions too. I think a lot of Twitter Reds fans are banana phone callers.

    Ummm, that's my point. It's just a dumb question. The person who asked that question is an idiot. Why he even retweeted and answered the question is beyond me, but that's the kind of question Adam in Milwaukee would ask.
