If the Reds lead holds, they, like Ratt, climb out of the cellar...into fifth place. *fart*

They better keep going "Round and Round" the bases then...

But we don't want them to "Lay It Down".

Since Aurilla has come off the DL, he's been one of the most productive hitting seconbaseman in the NL. He currently leads the Reds with hitting with RISP.

Even with his slow start, he projects to a full season with .260-10-82, with a .749 OPS. Not that bad for a MI.

Yeah, he can help someone out. Not a star mind you, but can give a team like the PaleHose with some improvement.

Not bad from a MI, correct.

Problem is that Rich Aurilia is a flat-out bad defensive middle infielder.

And I hardly think that the White Sox are going to invest anything in positional statue.

I'm the same guy who thought that signing Aurilia was a decent risk IF he'd accept a reserve role because he had the potential to be a league average offensive middle infield (and 3B) backup and injury insurance figure. For a vet utility guy he wasn't a bad risk...as long as he didn't play every day. He's an Out machine for sure, but his power and ability to stand at multiple positions would be useful off the bench. That was the first part of my thought process.

I figured that the signing was cheap enough and that Aurilia could do a good job from the bench helping guys like Lopez better learn the position. I figured that at this stage of Aurilia's career and considering his recent performance history he'd be happy to have a role on a MLB club and could possibly be a stabilizing influence the Reds might need with the departure of Barry Larkin.

Boy was I wrong on the latter part of my thought process. Not only was Aurilia fully unappreciative of the opportunity the team gave him, he demonstrated that he had no real interest in helping out players he perceived to be threats to him or being used as the team saw fit. Furthermore, after losing the SS job in the regular season to the same guy he should have lost it to in Spring Training, he throws fits when asked to rehab and every time things don't go his way.

Rich Aurilia has been given a good helping of more opportunity than any other MLB team would have been willing to give him. And now he's pointing his finger at the Reds for holding him back.

Slap a Milo on his forehead and make him go away.

Just throwing this out there: Booker got his 16 save at Louisville after pitching a scoreless 9th inning tonight. However, he gave up 3 hits & only struck 1 batter out, so it sounds like this setback is going to further delay his ascent to the majors.

As a SS he stinks real bad.

As a 2nd baseman he stinks abit.

He has some value, as he's above average hitter for a MI. And he makes peanuts.

We need to realize it.

Klu, be very wary of Standridge right now.

His Ground Ball/Fly Ball rate is 5.00 to 1 right now and he has a negative K/BB rate coupled with an exceptionally low K rate (3.48 per 9IP).

There isn't a single pitcher this century who's been able to support a 5.00 GB/FB rate over the course of a season.

Considering Belisle was the Reds best bullpen pitcher for a period this July and actually had a sub 4.00 for awhile, I think you see why he was used with Coffey and Wagner's ouchy inhabiting the clubhouse.

He obviously has fallen into a slump by overusing that 2 seamer.

If the Reds manage to hold on to this one, they will be 11 games out of the wild card, with 9 teams in between them and Houston. So what do the Reds need to happen to make the playoffs?

Reds 45-58 (best winning percentage since April 30th)
Astros 56-47

Lets assume that the Reds would need a .549 winning percentage to secure the wildcard. (Astros are at .543)

That would mean the Reds need to go 44-15 the rest of the way. Only a .746 clip.

Tom Browning is the only one who ever pitched in a major-league game after this kind of injury, making two starts for the Royals in 1995.

Oops, my mistake. Dave Dravecky also came back from it to pitch two games for the Giants in 1989, when he broke it again.

Since the Reds hit their low point of 33-52, they are 12-6 since then. Simply a good streak among a bad team much like when the 2004 Reds went 17-5 in May. They all have them, except for the historically bad teams.whenever the Reds get a little bit of pitching they are dangerous

Reds win?

Did he just say first winning month since May of last year?

Wow they have sucked.

A lot led to this. The DFA's of Graves and Jiminez which ultimately led to the Randa trade and EdE coming on. The acquisitions of Shackelford and Standridge who have pitched well. Griffey got hot and Harang and Claussen continue to show improvement. Lopez has been red hot.

Folks, with some improvements in pitching and without the certain dramatics of Graves in the closer role, this team has, if not mediocre, been pretty good the last 45 days. It gives one optimism for the future iF adequate moves are made in the off season. Those moves do not include trading Dunn, Griffey or Kearns.

Tom Browning is the only one who ever pitched in a major-league game after this kind of injury, making two starts for the Royals in 1995.

Oops, my mistake. Dave Dravecky also came back from it to pitch two games for the Giants in 1989, when he broke it again.

OK, I looked this up. We were right, and wrong about Dravecky. As someone mentioned, he missed most of 1988 after being diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his left arm. In the second game of his comeback in 1989, he snapped his left arm while pitching. He then broke it again during the Giants' NLCS victory celebration.

What has Kearns done to deserve special merit?

And I can remember Dravecky coming back in his first game against the Reds and just dominating us only to do damage to his arm in the next game.

Point well taken, but his statistics since being brought back are quite good and they will get better.

Saunders tried to make it back with the O's in ST of this year. Rotoworld has a blurb in March about him reporting to AA Bowie, but I can't find any stats for him whatsoever in that league.

Dravecky eventually had his left arm amputated in 1991.

I'm now 1 - 2 when starting game threads. 1 - 0 when starting game threads on Reds Live. Wooohooo.

Speaking of Adam (okay, so no one was), I had a dream last night that I was speaking to some high school graduating class (hey, beats me??) and so was Adam. I was talking to him before we spoke and he told he had just bought a farm in Finland.

And I wasn't even drinking last night before I went to bed.
