View Full Version : Is it Tim Redding time?

I was mildly surprised that he was not called up when Charlotte finished the season. Right now, he could give a veteran presence to the bullpen's long relief/mopup roles. In a pennant race, players' roles can change quite quickly. As it looks right now, BMac and Cotts cannot be counted on to give the team quality outs. Believe me, I'm not pushing Redding as some sort of savior, but having a veteran arm in the pen couldn't hurt.

Wouldn't hurt. I'm sure he'd be better than Sean Tracy or Charlie Hagar at times.

After the display I saw in the ninth inning today, and the seventh inning yesterday, I'd be open to it.

Yeah, Tim Redding (http://www.baseball-reference.com/r/redditi01.shtml) is an answer.

Chicken Dinner

Just what we need, another AAA guy that can't get an out.

I'm sure that would be the first time even Tim Redding could remember anyone depending on him.

Im sure the no call had to do with how many innings/games he started in triple A. and No, I think the answer is brandon-cotts-riske-jenks getting their collective heads out their collective asses, and thorton and macdougal keep being awesome.

Well I'll say this: "redding time" sounds better than "lima time" but that's the best I can do.
This is no time to pitch organizational minor leaguers.

I don't think he's just a AAA player at all...He's AAAA.:tongue:
