    Free Drew Stubbs! Also, the frustratingly up and down prospects of Homer Bailey continue.

    Yea, I share the Reds’ resistance to throwing the splitter and just hope it doesn’t shred his arm as the price for short term success. I imagine the frequency of splitter usage is the primary variable for causing arm trouble.

    I am guessing the Reds caved this time figuring that this is the last chance for them to realize any benefit from their investment, so reward trumped risk at this stage. Of course, maybe he is the rare arm that can sustain the stress of the splitter.
