2015 Reds, 1990 Score style: Manny Parra


To say the bullpen has been disappointing so far this year would be an understatement. No, the bullpen is not the only problem; leaving runners on base is a pretty big reason the Reds have lost three straight after winning the first four games of the season. But the relief corps has to do a better job in such close games, especially since they are only facing a few batters each game.

Manny Parra has pitched a grand total of one inning over the course of four appearances, and has a loss and a 9.00 ERA to show for it. Not a promising start, especially since he posted a 4.66 ERA last season. I hope he (and the rest of the ‘pen) can turn it around. The NL Central is too strong to lose these close games.
