Steve Kelly

A report from the Batsinfo email:

Steve Kelly went seven strong for Louisville, giving up one run — unearned — to lower his ERA to 1.88.

Kelly continues to be impressive at Louisville, but since he’s not on the 40 man roster, don’t expect to see him any time soon.

Have to keep giving those starts to the “Three Stooges”.

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.

  1. IIRC – Kelly’s out of the same mold as the “Three Stooges” – Has to have sharp command, because he’s not going to overwhelm people with his fastball – I guess he does have a very good change-up.

    4th round pick a few years back, played college ball, and helps that he is from Fairfield.

    We’ll see him in September.

  2. Don’t bet on it, the Reds have become very “selective” with their September callups. They don’t want to spend the money and this year payroll is going to be up and attendance is going to be down. I don’t expect many, if any, September callups.

  3. Ok, but even if he keeps up the 1.88 ERA, sometimes even a blind squirrel gets the nut sometimes.

    He keeps what he is doing – he’ll get the Sept. call

  4. Yeah, but we both know he’s not going to keep up a 1.88 ERA. I’d be happy with a 3.00 ERA.

    Hell, I’d be ecstatic.

  5. Maybe Paul Wilson has options left….:roll:
