    I guess we can sit around and stare at each other.

    The last four games played at home by the Reds have taken some of the joy out of baseball. Not exactly the team's shining moment.

    What do you expect, celebration? Blow the playoffs and waste great pitching to lose Opening Day. Not exactly a joyful time.

    Re: Ludwick injury - dislocated shoulder

    I was at two of the playoff games last year.

    Easily the two most fun games that I have ever been at, and I was also at the Adam Dunn walk-off grand slam 7 run comeback in the 8th and 9th game.

    The joy is still there, if you let it be. Yesterday was a very entertaining (albeit frustrating) game- Cueto pitched amazingly! Hoover stranding the 1-out triple? Some great stuff in there.

    Enough with the Dusty bashing. Rule number 5.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    There's been very little outright Dusty "bashing". I think discussing his game decesions is perfectly acceptable.

    just my opinion

    There are like 5 threads right now all simultaneously discussing different aspects of Dusty's perceived shortcomings as the manager of the Reds.

    I think that's pretty excessive.

    and there is always going to be manager "bashing", but we're here to talk about the Reds. The only thing we actually have to talk about right now is last night's game.

    Dusty didn't do himself many favors last night, IMO.

    In no way is it all Dusty's fault last night. The offense struggled against really good pitching. But he didn't help himself.

    A discussion about Ludwick's injury while sliding into a base became a diatribe about Baker's management of the end of the game. There haven't been consecutive meaningful posts about how the Reds should react to the loss of their cleanup hitter since page 3 in this thread.

    Baker has a place in this discussion, as he is a part of the team. But this thread is so far off topic that it will need an astrolabe to get back on it.

    Hopefully this post can serve as a reminder that this thread is meant for a discussion of Ludwick's injury and the Reds' response to it, and not yet another discussion about Baker's roster usage with Ludwick out, as we already have 3 other threads about that, two of which are supposed to be about Bruce's changing approach and Hoover's pitching yesterday.

    Quoted for truth.

    In an effort to regain the topic, does anyone think that Bob will ask Walt to get on the horn for someone from out of town?

    I think they should explore it, but I don't expect they will do anything. Might depend on the severity of the injury.
