    Perhaps. But the Reds have blown some leads with some of these young pitchers in the late innings. I'm just saying holding a lead looks a lot better to the powers that be than blowing it.

    Matt Belisle can do no wrong.

    If you come from another organization and are an older player, you generally can do no right.

    If you come up through the Reds system and are young, you generally can do no wrong.

    If you have a good OBP, you can do no wrong.

    If speed is your best asset, you can do no right.

    If a pitcher has good minor league perhipherals, he can do no wrong.

    Homer pitched today, he can do no right.

    Cueto pitches Friday, he can do no wrong.

    I'm wondering about Volquez. When they got him in the trade he could do no wrong. Now I'm thinking, maybe, he can do no right.

    We'll see.

    You forgot that once traded from the Reds, a player can do no wrong. (see Denorfia, WMP, Hobbs)
