But take a look at the box for today’s game vs the Blue Jays. The Reds threw a 2 hitter.
I’ve always liked Belisle and think he’s more suited for a starter spot…he sure turned some heads today, I’d imagine. The one hit he gave up was a flare, according to Trent Rosecrans.
Boy, talk about some Reds coming back from the dead…look at the Jays side of the box….Royce Clayton, Rey Olmedo, and Chad Mottola…Maybe that shutout by the Reds wasn’t so impressive after all.
One other thing, I’m reading more and more media comments about Valentin’s importance as a pinch hitter as a reason for keeping 3 catchers…sounds like the seed has been planted with the media.
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.
