    Team Speed

    I think we need more team speed

    Speed was banned in the last CBA. No more greenies allowed.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I think we need more intangibles.

That's an amazing statement."

    You don't need much speed with how the game is played in the 2010's. Different story in the 70's and 80's. This Reds team is OK with the speed they have now.

    Maybe we could have more bullpen games. Chapman starts ... for one inning of course, then Marshall, then ...

    I feel the need. The need for speed.

    I think we need more power.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    We need more passion, according to Doc.

    Maybe I’m completely wrong.

    Why the 'maybe'? Go with your instincts, Paul. Believe that you're complelely wrong, we all do.
