    I don't care that the bullpen's been sucking; no need to turn Harang into a rag-arm to save his manager's butt.
    I agree. I would like for Harang to be effective this September, and in 2007 as well.

    Narron certainly seems to be as good as about any other manager the Reds have had in the last decade or so, though that is not exactly praise of the highest order.

    I don't agree at all that he should have been sent back out there last night. I think Aaron is a bit different than the rest of our starters in the fact that his delivery is so smooth and effortless. You rarely see him appear to be 'worn out' and having to exert himself more due to being wiped out.

    When Claussen reaches his 100 pitches in the top of the 5th we all know because he starts shortening his stride and using all arm.

    Why should a pitcher get credit for a complete game when a game is 9 innings and he only pitches 8?
    As Caveat Emperor and Austin Kearns said, if you are the only player to pitch for your team in an official game, then you get credited with a CG.
