Four Reds relievers are vying for one spot in the bullpen, but in the past few days, neither Jose Acevedo, Joe Valentine, Matt Belisle nor Todd Coffey seems to have done enough to give himself a major advantage in winning the job.
The article is notable primarily for the absolutely scary picture of Joe Valentine that accompanies it. I’m going to have nightmares.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
