    Re: Things I dislike.

    I dislike that, with the new roster, there are apparently only four generally accepted complaints remaining for at least the first month of the season or until there is an injury. The game threads will be replete with complaints that:

    1) Hannigan doesn't bat 7th. (The apparently set lineup of Choo, Phillips, Votto, Ludwick, Bruce, Frazier that some folks want to tweak, but most generally accept, leaves only the complaint of Cozart hitting in front of Hanigan).
    2) Chapman should have been left in the bullpen.
    3) (Insert Player here) should have been the 25th guy on the roster over (Insert Player Here)
    4) Choo vs Bruce as starting CF.

    Gone by the wayside are the old stand bys:

    1) Chris Heisey should be starting.
    2) (Insert player here) should not be leading off.
    3) (Insert Player here) should not be batting second.
    4) (Insert Pitcher here) is the ace of the staff.
    5) (Insert Veteran Player here) is gone after this year so the reds need to sell the farm for a rental player to win now


    When you think about it... there is a good chance that we will have very little to debate until well into the season.
    - Every critical Red is already signed for next year with the exception of two whose replacements are already in house: Arroyo-Leake & Choo-Hamilton. Of the names being talked about as making the 25 man roster Parra is the only other player not under Reds control for 2014.
    - There are zero position battles among the starting 8 fielders.
    - We can debate over the rotation slots 2-4 (assuming Cueto is #1 and Chapman is #5 to limit innings), but no one is gonna care all that strongly about Latos-Arroyo-Bailey versus Arroyo-Latos-Bailey.

    I dislike that they never made a Juan Castro bobblehead.

    I dislike that every time I see Juan Castro's name, I'm reminded of the time Jerry Narron sent him up to pinch hit for Josh Hamilton.

    One of the all-time bonehead moves of the century.

    When Manos de Oro is retelling his career to his grandkids, he'll say "I was such a great hitter, they lifted Josh Hamilton in my stead once at the end of a game. How 'bout that!"

    Cheap jokes aside, was there any rationale to that move? I mean, was Josh in one of his funks or something?

    From a RedsZone thread about the move:

    Two outs, nobody on, trying to get a right-handed hitter up there, Castro is 1-for-1 lifetime against him. If there was someone on base, I’d have given Josh a chance to whack it out of the ballpark. I’m just trying to get something going any way we can.
    http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59544

    If we want to be charitable about it, this was in June of Hamilton's rookie year. And hey, Castro had a lifetime 1.000 BA against that pitcher!

    Here are a few things I dislike about the Reds:

    (Feel free to contribute)

    1. With the trade for Choo, the team will be getting on base too much and thus clogging up the bases. This will lead to too many rally killing multi home runs.

    2. Joey Votto's coffee addiction.

    3. Mike Leake's fancy t-shirt addiction.

    4. -m sure Marty has grown the do back. I like bald marty, as long as I don't have to listen to him.
    I believe Marty's hair is still high and tight.

    - Having relatively little, if anything, to actually complain about
    This is easily the least there has been to complain about with this team in a very long time. I am looking at bullpen usage, Mesoraco usage and maybe BP's OBP near the top of the order as being three potential targets.

    I dislike having to wait all winter to get my roof replaced, shutters fixed, gutters cleaned and garage door code changed. Severe damage and 2 break ins.

    I dislike that the "how will Chris Carpenter explain this to his son" comments will be slowly going away. They gave me hours of cheap thrills and laughs.
