    Scotter hit a HR to make it 3-1 Reds bottom of the 5th. Thats all I know.

    If Harvey would sign a two year deal, I think I would try and sign him if I were the Reds. He wont, just a gut feeling.

    Why is Riggy taking him out?

    I don’t really understand pulling Harvey here. He’s been cruising along. He didn’t miss any of those pitches by much in that 4 pitch walk.

    Riggy is not a starting pitcher guy. He would rather his bullpen do all the work. Which is why the bullpen is tanked at the moment.

    How much money are you offering for a 2 year deal?

    The idea of Homer Bailey coming back to this starting rotation irks me more than anything the Reds have done in recent years.

    That deal they locked Suarez up for just keeps looking better and better.

    Would be nice to get another insurance run here.

    His agent should be fired, but I’m happy he took the early discount.

    I agree, the recent struggles are probably due to being overworked.

    Hes making 5.6M and some change this year. I think my limit would be 8M a year max on a two year deal, maybe throw in some performance bonus that bump it to 10M a year.
