Kyle Lohse's line since being traded to Cincinnati: 19.1 IP, 19 hits, 2 walks, 22 strikeouts, 2.33 ERA. Just sayin'. The Reds bullpen has also blown every game he's pitched. Kyle starts tonight against the Astros.
You gotta figure he just needed a change of scenery...and for that matter, so did the Twins. It worked out well for both of us, although I suppose it would be working better for Old Lohsey if the Reds pen would quit blowin' it.
I guess there is something to be said for a 'decent' pitcher in a terrible league.
