    Don't look now, but Reyes might be trying to make a case for himself.

      Not that Reyes is a savior or anything, but I can't see how Thompson in the rotation and Jimenez or somebody in the pen is more desirable than Reyes in the rotation and Thompson in the pen. Four-seamer, two-seamer, whatever. Don't care.

        Make that 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K's now for AReyes.

        Why can't he pitch like this(or semi close to it) all the time?

            Did you watch Reyes pitch last year?

            That's how. 45 pitch 1st innings get a little old.

            It's just frustrating watching him. He'll throw a gem like today, then he shits the bed for 2 or 3 games. I'm no fan of Thompson, but at least he's consistant and more times than not will at least keep you in a game for 5 or 6 innings.

                Any mention of why Barton left the game after his 2nd AB in the 3rd inning?

                  Joe Strauss seemed to think that this game would have dozens of scouts in attendance...he really didn't think Reyes was going to go north with the organization, much less the big club...

                    Fair enough. I'm not saying this is the biggest injustice of all time. But:

                    - Reyes would have looked a lot better last year with Thompson's or Wellemeyer's run support.
                    - Neither Thompson or Wellemeyer is likely to get you deep into games anyway.
                    - Putting Thompson in the rotation weakens the bullpen.

                      Doesn't seem like he's the only one.

                            The way Looper has looked this spring, I would have done something with him and kept Reyes in the rotation...
