    Someone explain this to me

    quote from dusty baker:

    “But we’ve got to get him (broxton) more work. Our bullpen is bad shape. I didn’t want to use Sam (LeCure). (J.J.) Hoover’s been throwing so much. Those guys have all given everything they got.”

    How can you in the same sentence say that the bullpen is in bad shape because of overuse to hoover, and then say that broxton needs more work.

    I like dusty, but someone tell me how that makes any sense. If hoover is overworked and broxton is underworked, go with broxton over hoover more often dude!

    Its like he just cant put broxton in while they are down. Like it is against the rules or something.

    Just silly.

    First, I never try to understand what Baker says. You can pull a brain muscle.

    Second, I read this as Baker saying he's realized he is going to have to use Broxton in more the just the 8th inning of games the Reds are winning. Closest thing you're going to get to Baker admiting he was wrong.

    [sarcasm]Silly post, rook. Broxton pitches the 8th when we're winning and sometimes when we're tied, dude.[/sarcasm]

    So, what do we take away from what he said about LeCure? Is he hurt? Did he move to Nova Scotia? Why didn't he want to use him?

    He's pitched a total of 5 innings this year and last pitched on April 8th.

    You must have missed it. Yesterday when Cueto went out, LeCure tried to warm up and couldn't. After the game both he and Dusty avoided directly answering why. LeCure said today that he was available, but Dusty said he wanted to try and avoid using him. So at the very least, something small is up with him.

    Dusty wouldn't give him a baseball.

    Has this happened with LeCure before?

    I seem to recall a similar incident from last year.

    Don't know what's wrong with Sam. But he tends to miss some time every year with relatively minor injuries. My guess is we'll see him this next series.

    Who knew that Votto4MVP was actually Chris Carpenter's son?

    Re: Someone explain this to me

    Baker has overused Hoover to the point he cant get anybody out without giving up a run. Broxten and Chapman dont pitch for a week and I knew that not having regular work, they wouldnt be as effective as they were the first 7 games of the season. Now the team looks like they dont have that shut down mentality to win games early and if this keeps up, somebody better be accountable. i dont see the Cards look like this. I hope somebody on the plane coming back to Cincy opened thier mouth how this is unacceptable... This wont help sell tickets if they keep this up. Ludwick getting hurt really hurt and what is sad his replacement isnt taking advantage and helping. you cant make 4 outs on 7 pitches.. that is not playing smart baseball.!! I sure would like to see a better option in LF a bopper to keep Joey from being pitched arpound.. and Phillips batting 2nd with a bopper batting 4th that puts fear in the opposing pitcher woulkd help

    Tony Perez got fired after 44 games.

    Hopefully Dusty doesn't last that long this year, unforgivable how he sabotaged the Chapman starting experiment by throwing the organization under the bus.

    Will never forgive him for that, and will no longer support him

    ...For Baker to get fired midseason, this team will have to seriously crater.

    I can't imagine why anyone would wish that on the home town 9.

    And his replacement was fired because he was "living in sin," despite the fact that the team was actually winning under his tutelage.

    Old thinking severally dooms this team sometimes.

    I don't want the Reds to crater but I really wish that the GM had more bite and would replace the manager. Losing another playoff series seems to be the only way that can happen, but that's going to cost this team another year. By 2014, the window of opportunity may start sliding shut.

    Have you forgiven the pitcher who prefers to close over start yet?

    Or the GM who agreed?
