Do you think that Burton is still a lock? He has a rough spring. Bray seems in form as does Coffee and Mercker and Lincoln are both looking like medical miracles.

Still wondering what Hopper's batting average is this spring.

I'm sorry you had to go to comment moderation but I understand.

John Fay, will this still be primarily your site with Eradi's comments added?

Bengal43... have you heard of the internets?

I think Burton makes it. If you remember correctly he had a slow start last year and ended up being one of our most effective relievers during the second half last year. The potential is there and spring isn't always the best reflection of a player. Often players start slow and get it together once the season starts.

I noticed in the beginning of last season that Burton was throwing high 90's, but everything was straight and down the middle. Needless to say, he was getting hit hard. By the second half, he started getting the ball down with some movement and had great success. Let's hope he finds that movement again soon. With Burton, Weathers and Cordero available for the 7th,8th & 9th, this bullpen looks pretty darn good.

Words of griff-
"My dad never ceases to remind me that he's got two rings to my none," Griffey said. "This is the best team I've been on since I came here (in 2000), so maybe this year. If not, then I'll probably be traded and maybe get a shot with somebody else."

Interesting comments.

1.Griff thinks this is the best team he's been a part of here in Cincy.

2.If not any good ,he wants to leave.(Can you blame him)

Wow.That clears some things up.If we suck,like some believe we will.Then what can you get for a guy like griff? If we win,how much longer is Griff going to be around? I think he has option's on his contact to stay if he wants For another year(If the franchise decides they want him).
