    Reds at Giants (5/14 - 5/16)

    Reds continue the West coast trip with a 3 game tilt in San Fran beginning tonight.

    The Reds enter the game on a red-hot 6 game winning streak. Here's hoping the young arms can keep it up.

    Tonight: Romano vs. Stratton
    Tuesday: Mahle vs. Blach
    Wednesday: Harvey vs. Suarez

    Side note: Reds are 11-12 since Riggleman took over.

    Very interested to see Harvey pitch again. Hopefully he can continue to pitch well and the Reds can benefit from the trade.

    I have to wonder who gets removed from the rotation when/if Disco is ready to go. I know he starts a rehab assignment this week.

    Have to think it's Bailey. I know he's owed a ton of money, but if they're truly committed to a rebuild, you let the young guys pitch as much as you can.

    I'd be fully on board for this, but I don't see them ever doing it.

    Small steps. Happy the Reds no longer have the worst record in baseball. I'm hoping the 4 teams above the Reds beat each other up enough for the Reds to sneak into the scrum by the All-Star Break.

    I think he could be effective out of the bullpen.

    Part of me would love another top 3 draft pick but the other part of me really wants to see this team try to battle back to .500 and show more progress.

    I'd be concerned with his attitude about that. After all, he has 2 no-hitters.

    Riggleman probably doesn't care about that.

    Riggleman isnt going to be the one making that call either.

    No doubt. Especially since he knows he has very little chance securing the job after this season. Last thing he's probably worried about is a washed up pitcher's ego.

    That was the point of my question. I think everyone thinks Bailey is the weak link but I would be very interested to see if they pull him from the rotation. It would be a huge mistake to pull one of the young kids. They are all pitching well and are the future of this rotation.

    My point was specific regarding Bailey's potential "effectiveness" out of the bullpen. I predict he would begin pouting if assigned there.
