Stanton on the DL

From the Reds:

Mike Stanton is going on the DL with a strained left hamstring.

We are selecting from Louisville the contract of LHP Michael Gosling (13gs, 5-3, 3.00, 78ip, 71h, 23bb, 65k, 7hr). He will wear 36.

John - did Arroyo pitch beyond his capability last year or there something wrong with him this year?

at 2:19 PM Blogger John Fay said...

We've asked him repeatedly if he feels OK. He says he does. He seems to be throwing as hard as he did last year. I think teams have adjusted to him. He has to re-adjust to get it going again.

It seems both Harang and Arroyo need to adjust. Harang has been living daugerously the whole year and Arroyo is more hit and miss than Jekyl-Hyde Lohse. If the Reds to have any hope for a playoff run (outside of relief pitching), Arroyo has to adjust or whatever... fast. He should not be having this trouble (or Matt on Friday) with the Rangers...

What is the guess on the bullpen in 2-3 weeks if everyone is healthy and barring a trade?

Jerry Narron is the worst maanger I have ever saw. Batting A guy who strikes out 200 times a season 2nd, is Bob Boone like, he is in love with David Weathers, and Mike Stanton, why was Stanton even batting yesterday to begin with?
The problem starts with the manager not knowing when or how to push buttons, then it's time to clean house, i.e. Weaters, Stanton, and others.

the fact of the matter is this team isn't very good. For anyone to put the blame on the manager for this team's lack of success is crazy. Narron doesn't throw the ball in the late innings, the bullpen does, and until this team improves in that area even Sparky Anderson won't be able to win with it.

I agree Jerry "I don't have a clue" Narron doesn't throw the ball in the late innings, however, he puts Stanton, and Weathers in most all games to blow it for them, and having Adam Dunn bat second was stupid, and he could show a bit more fire, i.e. at least coming to the field when a close call happens, Narron is the main reason, not the only reason, but the main reason the Reds are a bad team.

Weathers has converted 13 of 15 saves chances, including eight his last nine. That's a pretty good ratio.

Let's face facts - for years we have not had any starters and now we need relievers too. Any sign of Krivsky wheeling and dealing in the near future? Also, slamming Weathers seems to be quite inappropriate as he has been the only major help we've had. We are still not playing the way we should but I believe that's because the team "knows" we can't expect zeros from the bullpen in the late innings.

Come rain or shine (mostly rain lately) my bood runs RED! GO REDS!

Why does one of the best hitters on the team, and the only legitimate lead off hitter, sit when he was hot?
