    Re: I know it's only February but.......

    Had to pull this thread back to the forefront after a couple weeks.

    It's spring and every player is "working on stuff." Batters trying new stances, working on timing, spraying the ball over the field; pitchers fiddling with timing, pitch grips, and release points. Stats and records are obviously meaningless in spring training.

    But, my goodness! Are the Reds the only team in the Cactus League still working out kinks? They are laughable right now.

    Even if the Reds are terrible this year, I still wouldn't put a bit of stock into their spring training performance.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    When these guys start worrying then I will worry.

    I honestly have no idea what the spring record is this year. I have also not looked at anyone's stats.

    Who is wringing their hands?

    I'm only pointing out that it sure would be nice to see other teams "working on stuff" once in a while. The last three or four days, it seems as if the Reds are the only team in their games who are still "working on stuff."

    Do the numbers matter now? And after the debacle today I'm doing some serious hand wringing.

    No they don't. They matter September 30th, when they tell us who gets to keep playing.
