Yesterday when I was listening to WLW on the way to the game (and as I changed the station in a fit of rage, mr creek said to creek jr "wow son, that's a record, she listened for 4 whole minutes before she got mad") the host (Greg??) was agreeing with a caller that Miley should not be fired cause he is doing a fine job and people just want him fired as a scapegoat. :bang:

Clearly Aurilla and his .269 OBP deserves to get more plate appearances than Dunn and his .398. Gotta keep him lower in the lineup. He just strikes out too much. :explode:

Of all the people to go up and swing at the 1st pitch after a walk....and a should have been 5 pitch walk........it would be Valentin ...not Adam that i would expect to do that.

Untouchables are elites; Harang, Wagner, and Pena fall far from that category, and so do their ceilings.

Lopez is elite at the age of 24. Dunn was the closest to this category, but frankly, I do begin to wonder if he'll earn his salary for a small market team like the Reds as early as next season.

I don't mind the negativity so much or the monotone, but the homer-ness is utterly sickening.I agree with you about Skip and the homer announcers. But I think TBS has - in the past few years - made an effort to have their announcers be more neutral. Perhaps that is why Chip seems easier on the ears now than when he was in CHI where I think they want you to be unabashed homers and not give any credit to the other team. I don't mind the homers so much but I do mind them not giving credit to the opposing team.

Two swings, four runs. From the bottom of the order where one was placed and the other ended up there for a hurt player. What would happen if you put them up in the order?

Dunn is the best chance we have to score runs. And you bat him sixth? Randa gets his second day of rest in a week so you can play Luis Lopez?

Too much money for a team going nowhere this year. Money that could have been put towards other needs. I think.

Given that it's a one-year deal, I don't mind it so much. I kind of like what he's given the team this year. And I kind of hope he gets traded before they can sign him to an extension.

I also kind of like the Reds' Sunday unis. They're ... you know ... RED.

And I can't believe that just last Sunday I was sitting in the stands at GAB. Seems a lot longer ago than that.

Just something to keep an eye on.

Adam Dunn came into today 4th all-time on the Reds team OB list at .384 (Joe Morgan .415, Dummy Hoy .390, Frank Robinson .389).

Dunn also entered the day 2nd on the team SLG list at .516 (Robby .554, George Foster .514, Klu .512).

Not surprisingly, he's 2nd on the team OPS list at .900 entering today (Robby .943 with Morgan 3rd at .885).

And Adam's only 25. For anyone confused by why some many think Adam's a fairly awesome, that's why -- because he is.

Miley made it sound like Keisler was going to be the long reliever yet he uses him for both short and long relief.

Keisler has only been in 8 games and has pitched over 19 innings.

IIRC, Dunn's blast went 404 feet, Randa's went 412, and Griff's went 397.

Was at the game, and boy does this team just not have "it," not sure if it is heart, or mental acuity, or just a desire to win. The offense is there when the pitching isnt, the pitching is there when the offense isn't, and sometimes neither one shows up (Boston series).

It would be great if they could put it together, as many have pointed out, the Reds are a average to slightly below average pitching staff away from being a winning team. However, I am not as quick to point to finger and the blame solely rest on their shoulders. Watching professional clubs the past few weeks has made it glaringly obvious, the Reds now just do not know how to win. Does anyone think the Cards' offense would lose as many games with this staff? If the Reds had better pitchers, would their offense show up? It seems to me someone needs to light that winning fire, and soon.

Granted, it was a win. But after witnessing them in person, I felt I needed to vent a bit what I had been surmising the whole time.

Does anyone think the Cards' offense would lose as many games with this staff?No, they are the highest scoring team in the league, but they would not be running away with the central with this pitching staff. They would probably be about .500, maybe a few games over with better defense than our pitchers have behind them.

Well, we are the second highest scoring team in the league, only 10 runs behind the Cards. If they had this pitching staff, they would be near the cellar of the Central, with probably just a few more wins than we have now.
