You Wreck Me
You can point the finger at the bullpen for blowing this game, but Johnny Cueto has to take some of the blame.
While 6.0 innings and 4 runs isn’t terrible, the Reds starting pitchers need to realize that they need to do better than 102 pitches in 6 innings (Harang threw 98 pitches in 4 innings on Friday).
With Francisco Cordero essentially being a walking atomic bomb, and the announcement that Arthur Rhodes has a sore foot, the Reds need to really concentrate on some long outings by their starters to give this bullpen a little bit of a breather.
UPDATE: When I said the bullpen needed help, this is not what I had mind.
