    Nothing radical... just manage daily. Let him work out his horrible batting approach right now at the 8th hole in front of the pitcher. Keep him away from the current mix that is hitting and scoring runs. Its not a huge deal to just move a guy whose been awful for 4 days to hit 8 hole. Let frazier bat 5 right now.

    He dove back into the bag and seemed to have hurt his shoulder. Trainer came out and checked him out.
    He came out of the game for a pinch runner.

    Doug noted in the Minor League thread that Hamilton dove back into 2nd and looked to have a shoulder injury.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Votto to Bailey for the third time this game.

    Bailey an early favorite for Gold Glove consideration.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

Hanigan caught some very good pitchers, and they are way more responsible for the ERA than the catcher.

    I'm just not one who says "he's awesome behind the plate, everything else is a bonus".

    That said, many people will be harping on Hanigan before I call for a major shakeup. But I can see the train coming.
    I agree completely.

    My point is that he's not even close to hurting the offense. It's too bad that a guy that can't hit 20 HRs is automatically viewed as a liability by some people.

    That said, I get the impression that Hanigan is well liked here and is unlikely to join the likes of Cory Patterson and Willy Taveras as RZ whipping boys.

    I"m not sure what you definition of "radical" is, but moving a "Bruce type" hitter from 5 to 8 in the bating order after 4 bad games is my very definition of "radical".

    What I would consider "not radical" is flip flopping Bruce and Frazier if a lefty was starting.

    If a manager managed like that, moving Bruce to 8th after 4 bad games, every player would leave when they hit FA.

    There is a reason why zero managers manage like that.

    So am I a cranky old man or is the continuous FSOhio crawler annoying?

    I really don't care about the NHL.

    Annoying - every now and then is fine, but not throughout the game
