Why do you think the Reds have zero confidence in the guy? He leads the majors in holds because they DO have confidence in him to preserve leads.
They obviously DON'T because if they did they would have brought him into a 5-3 game to close instead of Weathers.
The guy pitched three nights in a row. While I don't agree with your reasons, I agree with your point. The Reds haven't shown they are ready to hand it to him yet, and waited for Graves to completely make himself look silly before cutting him loose. Remember he cracked last year, and this year he seems to be prone to big innings where he gets blown up followed by long stretches of dominance. His behavior as well as the way the Reds are babying him tells me that he may be one of these great stuff, low confidence guys, a la LaTroy Hawkins. I don't know enough, this is speculation, but I'm pulling for the kid. I hope he steps into the role and gets the job done.
