    LeCure edging out Ramirez on the SP depth chart?

    Maloney has had a great start to the year, too. 0bb/15k in 19 innings.

    I wish I still believed Maloney could make it in the bigs. I really wish we had a LHP in the Reds rotation.

    But, I’m afraid Maloney is going to wind up being basically a AAAA pitcher. He’s very good in AAA, and tantalizes you with a great K/BB ratio, but he’s not truly a dominant K guy. I don’t think he throws much more than 90 mph.

    At the MLB level, I think he’ll give up too much contact and too many fly balls (hence, too many HR’s at GABP) to ever be any good.

    Bill, I was confused by that too. All I could come up with was either Logan wasn’t feeling well or that perhaps there is a set schedule for when certain guys play/rest.

    He hadn’t had a day off in a while, but still, you don’t rest a guy when he goes 4-5…that’s just silly.

    Reading of the International League in 1926, had possibly the worst minor league team ever as they went 31-129 for a .194 percentage. At 4-14 and a .222 win percentage Dayton could be racing towards infamy!
