Relief pitching Chad Dotson 04/07/2007 4 Lonnie Wheeler is correct: the relief pitching has been a big reason the Reds have gotten off to such a fast start. That, of course, is in complete contrast to last year’s fast start. Share this:TweetPrint 4 Responses Shawn 04/07/2007 Actually, I’d say the starting pitching is why the Reds have gotten off to a good start. The relief has helped. Chad 04/07/2007 Well, I didn’t say that relief pitching was the only reason for the start, just a reason. daedalus 04/07/2007 No runs in five games? And these guys have the wishbone C on their caps? Too bad we have to send one good pitcher down for one who sucks tomorrow. Justin 04/08/2007 Relief was steady over the 1st week. Beat up a little today by the Buco’s but it is still livable for now.
