    I can see the Reds trading the farm for scrappylicious Skip Schumaker.

    It could be 4-4 if Hairston makes a decent throw...

    Like Aaron Boone, the guy just punted half a season. It really seems like his concentration lapses depending on the start.

    yet he's had a pretty good 2nd half - are you referring to the 1st half?

    As a SP I think he's a good innings eater who can be fairly consistent, and give you a lot of QS...maybe I'm missing something but don't mind him at all, very good #3-#4 guy. Great #5 on a rich team.

    He's had a terrible season. Surrounding a decent month.

    I've personally never used it before. Arroyo has definitely stunk this year for the most part.

    Bill Bray is a close second behind Arroyo. No pitcher has ever gotten more messes cleaned up for him; no pitcher has ever allowed more starters' runs to score.

    After Pujols doubles, Bray comes in to face Ankiel. He pops out. (2 out)

    I'm surprised to see his K rate is right up there with EV, Harang and Cueto.
    Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand

    Goes to show you there's more to pitching than Ks.
