Yesterday, the Reds starter has an ERA almost twice the ERA of the Braves starter. Tonight, it’s an even worse ratio. The Reds are sending Luke Hudson and his 6.36 ERA to the mound to face Jorge Sosa, who sports an excellent 2.70 ERA.
I’m so tired of Luke Hudson, Eric Milton, and Ramon Ortiz that I could scream. If the Reds had three average pitchers instead of these stiffs, they’d be in the playoffs.
Anyway, here’s a game thread to discuss tonight’s action against Hot-lanta.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
