    Still think Arroyo will come out of the game.

    Stayed in to bunt because Reds only have lefties on the bench, along with Izturis and catcher Miller.

    Bad bench construction, Walt.

    Choo's just like some giant baseball magnet.

    Chicks dig the HBP.

    Choo should give the baseball magnet he keeps in his jersey to Bruce's bat.

    Nice move by Choo. He's a master at it.

    Look the Reds were obviously mad at Francisco he came to camp in bad shape, they got a good reliever for him, the trade was sensible.

    But don't sell him too short. The Braves will make good use of his skills.
    All true but I still don't understand why they would trade away a kid with the talent hoover seems to have. Did they have such a surplus of good pitching in their organization?

    Wow, I had no idea. That's quite a lot of getting smacked by the baseball.

    I don't know if it's worse than last years bench, but I don't think it's any better.

    Chipper Jones was near retirement. The Braves needed to get ready for a change at third base.

    Braves have a great bullpen already, needed third basemen. That simple.

Probably a bad comparison...but that's always what he made me think of. I just think Johnson's the more well rounded complete player. I wish Juan luck....just not TOO much luck. :O)
    The term "pro-Frazier" is awesome.

    He is nice and subtle about it. He "looks" like he's trying to avoid it...while not doing so at all.

    Still not in the same class as Biggio though. Best I've ever seen at it.
