He certainly is being more visible/PR friendly than DanO. Too bad he has the charisma and personality of my coffee mug.

I was going to try to listen and post a summary, but I received a phone call right after the interview started. Stupid work!:)

I caught bits and pieces. Nothing newsworthy. However, I did catch them mention Bailey. Wayne mentioned that he is anxious to see him pitch, which I thought sounded different from what they have said in the past. Wayne said he believes that Bailey has made the biggest jump or most improvement of any other minor league pitcher this year.

It is just nice to hear them talkin' Reds in August. Let's just hope they are still talkin' Reds in October!

Really? I heard WK on the XM baseball station with Dibble and Kennedy a couple of months ago and he was great- witty, sharp; a great guest, and fun to listen to.

He was talking about Matt Garza, not Homer Bailey. Buster Olney derailed the interview and started asking him all of these questions about the Twins. The last 5 minutes of the int. had nothing to do with Cincy. :thumbdown

I apologize.
I guess I will not try to talk on the phone and listen to the radio at the same time again.
Boy, that makes me wonder what I might have have said on the phone!:confused:

Whoever was hosting Mike and Mike this morning are idiots. I assume it was Erik Kuselias as 1 of the guys, not sure about the other. They ticked me off last time Mike and Mike were gone. Since Stern is on Vacation I had to look for something else to listen to this morning, lol...

Last time all they did was Reds bashing. Same as today. They were talking about who could compete with the Mets as far as the NL playoffs go. The mentioned the Dodgers, Cards, and Houston. The disrespected the heck out of the Padres and didn't even mention the Reds. They thought the biggest threat was the Stros if they can get their pitching straightened out. Last time the junked talked the Reds and Padres, today it was just the Pads, didn't mention the Reds.
Those guys are clowns. I'm not sold on the Reds either, but the Reds have played 115 games and they are leading the Wild Card right now. At some point respect is owed.

And yes, there was much love for the Astros between the two. Kept calling them the Twins of the NL. That no one wants to face them with their pitching.

They had Krivsky on so they probably thought it was repetitive to talk about the Reds after having a segment devoted to them for 15 mins.

personally i like erik kasillius (sp?).. and i love the reds but realistically, as a baseball fan, i think the only team that can beat the Mets this year are the Dodgers in the NL. The mets are just too talented for our pitching staff to handle and nobody wants to face pedro and glavine in the playoffs. I cant even begin to imagine what their number of starts, wins, era is in the post season career.

I think the reason why the Reds dont get much love lately is cuz most of their record was built up before the ASB. they are sub .500 in the past month+

and the only reason they are so close to the cards still is cuz ST louis has sucked as well

The Mets are clearly the best team in the NL, but anything can happen in a short series. Pedro and Glavine are both older, so who knows how their arms will respond in October. Pedro has been banged up already this year anyways. So, if Pedro were to get re-injured, the Mets rotation would pretty much consist of Tom Glavine and Steve Trachsel. They're the best team on paper, no doubt. But rarely does that mean anything in the playoffs.

You must not regularly listen to ESPN's morning show. All they do is repeat the same 3 stories every hour. I don't think they really care about repetiveness.

Actually as far as the Pedro and Glavine comment I saw an article a few weeks ago and the best #1+2 Combo in the N.L was not Pedro and Glavine but Arroyo and Harang. Now with Arroyo stuggling lately this may have changed but I dont think their rotation is that much better than ours. Harang is extremely underrated, he is a serious cy young canidate yet no one notices.

Sorry, I would love to face pedro and glavine in the post season. For a couple of different reasons.
First, tons of pressure on those guys to pull the Mets to the series. Not that they havent seen it before, but still pressure.
Second, Age, I will take my chances facing some guys in their twilight in October with close to if not over 200+ innings this year.
The Mets lineup is pretty tough, but I dont think scoring runs will be our problem for some reason. And I would rather see our Of defense in Shea than in Chavez Ravin.

Completely agree redssouth. The Mets are a good team, but they don't scare me. Whoever they play in the first round, they'll have so much pressure put on them by the New York media, that it will work in favor of whoever they're playing.

I keep my radio on at 710 AM out in Los Angeles in the mornings on teh way to the studio and then listen to Dan Patrick/Olbermann during my lunch break at noon.

whoa i miss this post..they dont scare you at all????

Wright, Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Floyd, Lo Duca...are u serious? that is one sick line up this year. Playing in New York all year is pressure with the media. Believe me, they are use to it by now.

I like our chances in a short series with anyone in this league. That's not saying I mean we'll necessarily win, but there's not a team in this league I don't think we can handle at some time or another.

on the flip side of that, I don't think there is a team in this league that can't handle us. The NL is awful, and on any given day we can win against anyteam.

But remember the Cardinal series:
Game 1: First game of the biggest series of the season (so far) - lay a stinker.
Game 4: Can win the series and pull within 1.5 games of the cards - lay a stinker.

Granted they did win game 2 and 3 (one by a walk off homer no less), but i'd say that in that series, the Reds loss to the two most important games.

ok when you break it down like that, yeah i see your logic. but didnt they change the NLDS to 7 games???

redssouth

The Mets lineup scares the hell out of me... just pedro and glavine dont. What does scare me is Dunn and Jr. playing the outfield in L.A. The good news is that Lofton and Furcal may be wore out from rounding the bases after the first two games and we can sneak back in and take the series.

What scares me more than anything right now is the Astros who are sneaking up behind us. Oh how I wish that they would have traded Oswalt. I am afraid that if Jr. or Dunn dont get on a super hot streak, we will never see the post season.

cincrazy
08-11-2006, 03:24 PM
Exactly. The Mets lineup scares the hell out of me too. But they're certainly not unbeatable. I'm by no means saying I'd expect us to win, because that wouldn't be the case. But I wouldn't completely rule out the chance of us advancing either.

My bad, they defanitly have the playoff experience. But I think our guys have very comparative numbers for the season and glavine has been dropping off since starting hot.

I'd say the Reds have fared well against their stout pitching this season...

08-11-2006, 05:47 PM
Exactly Matt, as a matter of fact... well, a matter of my opinion, the reds haved fared well against all pitching. Except for rookies, and crappy pitchers i expect them to break the scoreboard against, they have been serviceable against all comers, including Clemens, Pedro, Glavine, Smoltz... etc.etc.Screw it... Bring on the Mets, we owe them for 1995!!!!

you guys are right, we've been pretty good against some pitching. i just worry about the playoff experience aspect of the noted pitchers versus our bats when it comes down to it in october.


same goes for my fear of our rotation/bullpen versus those bats in LA or NY...

if we make it to the world series, the term "cinderella team" would be the biggest understatement in the history of sport.

redssouth
08-11-2006, 06:42 PM
If we made it to the playoffs, I wouldnt be suprised to see us advance, we would fare much better in a 7 game series than a 162 game crawl. Our #4 and 5 starters would be eliminated with the new made for TV playoff formats. Our bullpen would get stronger as we could put a few extra guys in it that probably deserve to be there anyway. I also like the playoff experience we have on this team. The right mix of vets, and young exciteable guys can be a dangerous combo. And you know what, I dont think Glavine or Pedro has really been that successful in the postseason, not sure on the numbers, but they are not without their blemishes.

Who knows if Bronson's coming completely back to Earth now, but let's not forget if we'd face the Mets how dominant Arroyo was in the few starts he faced them this year. If the Mets would have to see him twice in a short series, anything could happen.

Plus, Al Leiter is in the booth now, so that jinx is far behind us. :angry:

I agree with you. However, can you blame them? We're not a major market team, we've been horrible for years now and it's all about proving yourself. All the othe mentioned teams have made the postseason in the last couple years.

I'm not saying that's the logic I would use and surely the Reds should have been mentioned, but this is the media! You can't excpect intelligence or anything even remotely mindful.
