If you are in the lineup (Lopez) you are being showcased, and if you're not in the lineup (Kearns)you are being traded?

SS is one of our greatest organizational needs. Lopez is going no where. He is playing because Jimenez is playing poorly.

I assume that Pena still can't play. Kearns is sitting because he has also stunk.

The Reds staff is the orange that rotted on one side... you look at that orange and you see some power and offense, pull it out and the other side is just downright gross.

MWM
05-06-2005, 08:26 PM
I feel bad for Paul Wilson. The guy is a competitor, but he just lacks the physical skills it takes to get big league hitters out.

I remember suggesting before the season that this could be the year where Paul Wilson completely blows up and is out of the rotation by the All Star break. the writing was on the wall by watching him towards the end of last year. I think he's done as a major league pitcher.

Oh good Lord! Unless the Reds offense is hotter than hot against Penny, this is going to be one long, disappointing game!

Is there something physically wrong with Wilson that he's not telling anyone about? What a nightmare.

I swear, after the pitching performances of late, I wouldn't blame the whole team if they just threw up their gloves and walked off the field.

Falls City Beer
05-06-2005, 08:27 PM
I'm gonna neg all of you for picking on the "workhorse."

Phhhl
05-06-2005, 08:27 PM
There has got to be something wrong with Wilson's arm. I know we're in the mood for some mind-numbing sarcasm, but the last guy I saw with that type of stuff was Jerry Reuss when he came here for his swan song. Paul is not a great pitcher, but that was sick. It was all Jeff Kent could do to hit a fair ball, he was so far out in front. He couldn't have been touching 80 on the gun.

PuffyPig
05-06-2005, 08:27 PM
Well, if it wasn't for all the bad luck, Wilson could be spinning a shut out.

You take out those HR's triples, doubles, single, walks and HBP, and it's a 0-0 tie.

We just can't catch a break.

Let's not forget, his arm is held together with rubberbands and bailing wire. Which is one of the reasons I thought it crazy to give him another multi-year deal.

PuffyPig
05-06-2005, 08:29 PM
I'm not sure that having the pitcher bunting a runner to third in the middle of a big inning isn't a little "rubbing it in".

We should hit a few of their batters.

Oh wait, we already tried that.........

I don't know why. It's just something I can't bring myself to do.

I feel horrible for Wilson; he's got to be feeling like a mile high piece of crap right now. Really, there's got to be something physically wrong.

Then, Belisle comes in and bam, bam. Then he melts a little. The poor kid; he's just a rookie and he's getting booed like crazy.

And the rest of the team... they've gotta be pretty down too.
