In his stead, the Reds have brought up Elizardo Ramirez, who was acquired as the player to be named later in the Cory Lidle deal. Ramirez, 23, appeared in 6 games for the Reds last year, 4 as a starter. Stats:
The scariest thing about this is that Dave Williams is now our #4 starter. He's not a good pitcher, but he is better than he has shown so far this year. Hopefully he'll have a few good ballgames to get his numbers back toward his career averages...
