Do you sit and wait like a vulture ready to pounce on the first moment of weakness by anybody so you can say they suck and we need to make a trade or the season is over?

No, I just see a glaring deficit on the team that has historically been something that is very cheap to try to fix, and it's annoying as hell when certain individuals think we shouldn't do anything to improve it. Give me a couple Sullivan/Weathers/Mercker solid veteran type guys with good numbers in the pen, and we improve this team a ton.

There's standing pat (which is what the Reds have done in the past) and being selective, which is what I think Jocketty is doing. It's not as if he doesn't think there aren't deficiencies. He may say one thing in the press but, seriously, how much is not being tipped.

He has to keep Howard Happy. Someone was going to get screwed. Was he going to screw his own guy. Utley can't play, so he picked Howard over Votto. It's not fair but it's a numbers game. Dusty would of picked Votto over Howard even if Howard had better numbers. That's just the way it is. Someone gets screwed every year.

Yes. Walt always looks internally first. He looks ahead, waits on those rehabbing, and tries those in the minors whom he can risk giving a shot in the Majors without hurting their growth in the Minors.

After ALL other possibilities are exhausted, then and only then does he (as anyone should with who has prudence and does due diligence) seek a trade.

A trade is the "last resort" because you have to give up future talent at a sell low price. When you make a trade like this, you're buying high and selling low, which is the worst thing a General Manager can ever do.

LOL okay, nevermind. Not going to argue. I just don't see how you can say right now we don't need to help, but in a few weeks we will. It's like you're saying we suck, but will only suck a few weeks from now. Either you need it, or you don't, one or the other. If you think more things will come available later in the month, that's completely fine, I hope we can make it until the end of the month and then make a deal. That's different though than saying we don't need it.

How can that be true.

Every day is a different assessment for the team.

I also didn't say we need bullpen help a few weeks from now.

I said, that if a few weeks from now a trade is made, then a few weeks from now it will be shown that we needed help. If we needed to make a trade now, we would have done it already.

If you don't think Howard does not want to go to the all-star game, and there were not conversations about time-off verses going to the all-star game you are naive.

I'm sure Howard said, "darn coach...I don't want to go to the All-Star game, I want the time off...send Votto."

I don't think I'm smarter, but using the whole argument from authority thing is a logical fallacy, speaking from authority doesn't mean they don't make mistakes.

BP knows more about drilling oil than anyone else, doesn't mean they didn't screw up royally. And just because Walt is a GM, doesn't mean he's not making a mistake by not improving a problem area of the team, and doesn't mean if he actually does make a trade, he's doing it at the exact right time perfectly.

what i'm saying is if howard wasnt selected, he wouldnt be as upset, because he'd see vottos numbers and go "damn, he arguably could be the starter over pujols" where as he looks at his numbers and goes, oh well, i'd be a reserve no matter what.

If Vottomatic and ILoveWilly and others want to make a trade every time someone has a bad outing, that's fine. (or if they want to because they think the team can do better, that's fine, too) But, it's not the way that GM's in baseball operate (or any other business). You always look internally first, and you try to develop what you already have allowing them to make their mistakes. Players become good players because they've been allowed to do that by their GM's.

I know what you are saying but you KNOW Charlie and Howard had that discussion. "Do you want to go or rest?" "Coach I want to go." What was Charlie going to do. Piss off Howard or Votto. that's all I'm saying.

I'm sure Howard said, "darn coach...I don't want to go to the All-Star game, I want the time off...send Votto."

actually, i'll take a gander the conversation went like this, charlie was thinking about reserves and he walked up to howard and said, hey ryan, what do you think about being a reserve on the all star team. of course ryan said, well coach, sure. boom done.

i dont believe howard was in charlies ear going, "i know votto has better numbers than me, but choose me anyways coach, otherwise i'm gonna hate you"

Um its not about a bad outing, its about having one of the worst bullpens in baseball, and having a ton of unproven guys in the pen. We have all of two veterans in Cordero and Rhodes in the pen, and Rhodes is the only guy who's been reliable all year and under a 4 ERA for the year.

When you see things like how awesome Weathers was for us last year and he's just sitting at home when you could sign him to a minor league deal and see if he can help us down the stretch, but for whatever reason Walt isn't calling, or doing much of anything, you really have to wonder.

Anyone complaining about Votto going to 3rd in that inning is silly.

Let's hope he gets the leadoff hitter so when David Wright takes him deep it doesn't tie the game up.

as good as joey is...he has had a few brainfarts this year

I think Mark Berry gave him the instruction to try and advance. Guy on third with one out is better than guy on second with one out. Sac fly gets him in.

Took a perfect throw. I don't blame that on Joey. They were forcing the Mets to make the play.

yes...no problem with aggressive base running...getting thrown out happens sometimes when you go all out.

Baseball is a funny game. I was looking at the pitching matchups before the trip and the only game I felt confident about was Cueto-Wells. And that is the only game they have dropped.

Um its not about a bad outing, its about having one of the worst bullpens in baseball, and having a ton of unproven guys in the pen.

Step away from the ledge, please.

The REDS are 4th in the National League in Save Percentage.

It's just like aggressive basketball and aggressive football. You score more points and you get more turnovers.

Baker is the anti-Marvin.

Mutaman

Boy, considering we've got one of the "worst bullpens in baseball", that was pretty nice relief pitching. Maybe we don't have to trade Votto for Todd Coffey after all.

I said 5-6 would be a great road trip. We have a chance to have the road trip that could win the division.

I had the same thought.

I wasn't expecting to lose when Cueto pitched and thought we'd probably lose 2 or 3 of the others.

Baseball is a funny game. I get a giddy laugh every time we win. That's how funny it is.

Minus maybe Masset (42 appearances) this was a complete team effort, everyone had a hit. That's great for a clubhouse.

Mutaman

With Harang being questionable, I guess Baker wanted to roll the dice and get as much out of Smith as he could tonight so he could save the others for the next two games. And it worked. Big effort by Smith after a shaky start.

Overall this was still a decent performance by Wood. He ran out of gas with the heat and with pitching on 3 days rest. With some luck he could've only given up 3 runs.

It's because of the Park they play in versus the Park the REDS' pitchers' play in.

San Diego has the best pitcher's park in the NL.

I've seen all those pitchers pitch in AAA. They aren't that good. It's the same reason players who hit great in AAA for San Diego, all of a sudden can't hit when they get to the Big Leagues.

Yes, it was; and, great job by Baker to trust Smith and send him back out there.

Maybe the ain't that good, but they ain't that bad either ;)

The park can only make so much of a difference and they still have to play on the road.

Absolutely.

You don't have low to sub-2.00 ERA's and it's a fluke.
