Good start

Ryan Jorgensen's first at-bat as a Red resulted in a two-run homer. It was Jorgensen's first big league hit. He fouled off two 3-2 pitches and then sent one halfway up the bleachers in the left field off Ted Lilly. Reds lead, 2-0.

What's up with Dumatrait? After all the clamor to call him up, he hasn't shown much to warrant keeping him at this level. He's clearly not ready yet. Is there anyone else worthy of a major league start? Looks like starting pitching again is going to be the pressing need in the off season.

Dumatrait pitched well early. His numbers weren't dominant -- 10-5, 3.49 ERA -- at Triple-A and it's big jump to big leagues.

Starting pitching will have to be addressed. But if some of the young guys don't come through -- Bailey, Livingston, Belisle and Co. -- it's going to tough to fix.

I remember many years ago that the Braves were in a similar position with their pitching. They brought up a few young guys and let them take their lumps. Does anyone remember Smoltz, Glavin, and Avery?? Be patient!
