is it still reitsma? just wondering.

is cormier going to get a chance to close out games?

or is bobby gonna bring up the kid Boyer from the minors and give him a chance?

does any body know a good site for checking out minor leaguers?

i think reitsma is terrible.

reitsma needs time...he's a good pitcher...good fastball, great changeup...he'd make a good closer in time...
people judge closers too quickly...case in point, everyone says brad lidge is good (i dont)...and look at his era, and how he's doing...(0-1, 6.94, 7 for 9 in saves)
...note to everyone: CLOSERS TAKE PATIENCE!

I could see a Betemit & Cash for Foulke trade.

He's a closer

Of course his era is going to be bloated

Wow. That might be a bit of overkill, hating everyone who went with the flow, in believing that the Reds would be in the cellar again. As far as being wrong, its only April. lol.

Cox would have to be nuts to put Sosa in the closer role.
