    Great news. Presumed innocent. He does a great job against lefties, and could add a lot to the pen. I wonder if Mercker would fetch anything on the trade market?

    Good for him, unfortunately other teams abusive fans probably won't see it that way. Assuming that is, that any of them know who he is.

    I can't look at your avatar and help but think you know what you're talking about.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Figured all along this was something the girl made up the next day when she had "buyer's remorse"

    Glad he was cleared. Although I'm sure it won't get near the headlines it got when he was accused.

    It’s unfortunate that some women use this type of thing as a method of revenge; it makes it more difficult for the women who actually are assaulted.

    Even though he’s cleared, this incident will probably follow him the rest of his career, it’s a shame.

    Re: Shackelford cleared of all charges

    I don't have data on inherited runners, but here are some other comparisons of Shack with Esteban Yan as Reds:

    Pitcher ERA BAA WHIP

    Shackelford 7.71 .271 1.71

    Yan ******3.60 .245 1.33

    Team ****4.71 .281 1.41

    If management is playing to win now, then why did they release a pitcher whose ERA, BAA, and WHIP are all better than the team average??!!

    Shackelford statement:

    “Today I am grateful and relieved that this issue can finally be put behind me. I have said from the beginning that the claims made against me were absolutely false and I am pleased that the District Attorney's office in Milwaukee, after careful review, agrees that there is no merit to these allegations. I want to thank the District Attorney's office and my attorney for working so hard to resolve this case quickly. I want to apologize to the Cincinnati Reds organization for any negative publicity this may have caused. I hope that any damage to my reputation from this unfortunate incident will not be long lasting, and that I can continue to work hard to help the Cincinnati Reds long into the future.”

    Shack...get yourself a girlfriend.
    These one-nighters with crazy women are harmful to your career.
