    Re: Phil Ervin

    In addition to what 72 said, I would just like to add that I see Ervin a lot and he just looks soft. He doesn't have the look of an elite player with his pedigree. Injury or not, it looks like he mailed it in the off-season and it carried over into the season.

    Mailed it in? He had wrist surgery and wasn't healthy enough until the spring to do much in terms of training.

    I am well aware of the wrist injury. I'm just saying that there are a lot of things you can do without using your wrist to get into/stay in shape.

    This is a family board.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'm not even close to calling Ervin a Bust. Given the Reds track record in drafting success the past few years with first rounders I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Some guys just struggle early on. Look at Mesoraco: Granted he was learning the defensive aspects of a very important position and coming from High School whereas Ervin had College experience. Whatever the Case he had a setback year at A+ and I believe he has been okay ever since. If Ervin was just mailing it in that's one thing. But he was admittedly pressing and struggling with the pressure of being a first round pick. Then you add on wrist surgery as well. If he learns from this Season it can do nothing but help him. I just won't put the bust label on him yet. I worked for the Columbus CLippers for a few years, you wanna see a bust that's Mat Laporta no doubt in my mind. Still Early on Ervin.

    Not much upper body training. I mean I guess you could run and do leg work in the gym.

    He should have been putting his hand in a bucket of rice and clenching and unclenching his fist.

    Post AS line developing very nicely: .255/.342/.520/.861. K'ing at a very low rate--roughly 1 in 7 PA--and with 14 W against 16 K's.

    Yep, over 1 OPS in his past ten games. The first real "turning of the corner" he's had this year. Keep it up.
