ohiosportsfan, are you equating throwing hard with ending up in the poop chute? you said coffey lacked "stuff." i elucidated the opposite.
coffey's not king K, but from what i've seen, i like him better in the closer role.
another important thing to consider, strictly from a reds' standpoint, is that all these young guys need to hit the fire sooner than later. these acquisitions of veterans en masse is overkill. a couple leaders would suffice...
it would be nice to have coffey or wagner closing while we actually have all these vets on the squad to counsel them.
I agree, but trial by fire isn't working...look at how badly wagner failed last year...i personally want to see wagner in the closer role over coffey, but consistency is a problem...I personally just don't like what I see much from coffey (im not saying weathers is much better) just that while the reds are winning (while it lasts)...we go with who works best, and right now I think its weathers...
You can argue that we should put in coffey or wagner to build them into the closers role, but that would literally be forfeiting this season (but apparently, im the only one who thinks the season isn't forfeited off top anyway)
