It’s in the Enquirer
Some of Gullett’s comments are unbelievable.
Pitching coach Don Gullett saw some good signs from Eric Milton the last time out – even though the results were awful.
“He did a better job of keeping the ball down, for the most part,” Gullett said. “He hung a couple of changeups.”
Todd Pratt, hardly a home run hitter, hit one of the hanging changes for a three-run homer in what ended up being a 12-2 Reds loss. Milton gave up eight runs in 4 1/3 innings to fall to 2-4 with a 7.21 ERA.
The left-hander will get a chance to build on that last outing when he starts today (1:10 p.m.) in the series finale against the New York Mets.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
