Now 3-1 with a 3.27 ERA. I'll bet he misses the Nats clubhouse.

I voiced my frustration in one of the other threads.  Yes, he came into SP out of shape in 2018.  But I think it's mostly attributed to the fact that he has ZERO pressure on him in Cincinnati.

His WHIP is about 1.6. It won’t last.

Good for him. Glad he decided to put in the work.

Tanner Roark would not make this team any better

I thought there was some resentment over being benched in the playoffs the prior year?

It’s better than that rubbish about his weight. So the Reds were so grateful to get one of our castoffs they’d take a rotund pitcher off our hands?  :crackup:

OT    Went to a combined class reunion a few years ago.    There was a guy who was 3 years older than me.    In HS, he was a lot bigger than me and my buddies.     He would torment us for fun.      As years went by, I grew up.    So, at the reunion, he was still 5'9" and about 160 pounds.     I thought about it.    :mg:

What's wrong with 5'9 160lbs ?  People with that body size tend to live longer than taller heavier people...

Sorry you were picked on when you were little.  I'd never do that btw.  8)
