Re: Introductions Thread
Hello fellow Reds fans.
I must say that I am looking forward to this season. I detect that many of you are very frustrated, and there is reason, but at this point I do my very best to have positive thoughts about Reds baseball 2006.
First, Womack, a native of Virginia, I actually interviewed him when he was a Pirate, is not a bum. He can swipe bases, play decent D and lead off. I think he deserves 2B.
Second, as much as I loved Casey, I believe pitching was more important. Aurilla and Hatterburg are just as good as Casey.
I like the new GM, can't spell his name, but I like him. He is trying. He traded for a third catcher, odd with a dynamic duo like ours, but he knows so much more of what's going on than we do. LaRue for pitching, dependable pitching, yes sir, in a second I'd do that. Let it develop.
Also, I like Freel, but I don't know if he should ever be an everyday player.
By the way, I'm a Baptist pastor, living in Virginia. I grew up in Virginia during the glory years and our local station carried Reds games, so I have been a big fan from the time I was old enough to know what baseball was.
