    God I'd love for each of these young pitchers to talk with Brantley for 3 min before and after each start

    Works for me. Like I said, the dude's not a starter. But in a one or two inning situation, he could be an asset.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Now in the future when you're in that situation only one of those runs will go against you because you'll be a middle reliever brought in with the bases loaded. So take solace in that.

    But will he have done his job if the Reds win the game?

    Or even in an extended outing going once through the lineup.

    Lol. No.

    Keyvius had a different job than Simon. Keyvius is supposed to develop for the future. So far, IMO, he hasn't.

    Well, Price taught Sampson a lesson.

    18-man pitching staff, and he can't have somebody ready in time.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    And the most starts by rookie pitchers in forever. Coincidence?

    I bet the lesson Bryan learns at the end of the season is not to teach lessons.
