Graves? Reitsma? Wagner?
Did you know there are no such things as "white" or "black" people?

Last I read, Graves has the job. How long will he keep it is the question.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

exactly ...

and in that order too, Graves, Reitsma, Wagner.

If Graves can find his old "closer" ways, he can be a solid closer. And as soon as he looks good shutting the door in the 9th.

... Bam Traded .... :-)

I am afraid you might be right about this one too.... :-)

If he has a decent first half....I look for him to be one of the casualties of the mid season trades.... :-/

I agree, in order to begin the season, I think it will be Graves, Reitsma, Wagner. Wagner looks like closer of the future, but the Reds will take care of him, hopefully.

Speaking of Wagner.

What are the chances of him cracking the rotation?

I would say slim right now, but only because the Reds are serious about him becoming the closer. He has the stuff for starting (especially for the Reds), but he has the fastball and mentality for the closer job.

Im gonna say that Graves is more stable than everyone is saying. The reds biggest need is starting pitching, so i wouldnt be shocked it Wagner ends up starting at some point. Then again, what do i know..... ;-D
