Re: Let the Sweet Lou rumors begin....
The past is gone. Get over it.
If the projected new owners pulled a brainless move like that, it would only prove that they don't have a clue either.
Unless of course, they are looking at it as a quick promotional/marketing campaign to generate interest/season tickets for 06, in which case, I would understand, but would lose all respect for Lou for agreeing to it.
Narron did a pretty good job considering the circumstances and the roster. And with Bucky Dent coming in you would have to expect the IF defense to improve, if at least a little bit.
Now all the Reds need is someone, preferably this off season, to come in and show the starting rotation how to throw heavy sinkers.
O'Brian has Coffey working on his, and supposedly had Wagner perfecting the one he already threw.
Maybe they've got the starting rotation on a similar program.....
Either way that would be the quick fix that would allow the pitchers we already have to have a chance at success at the GABP.
Estaban Loaiza picked up a sinker in one offseason, came into the White Sox as a minor league FA, and ended up winning 20 games.
