    Clearly, they WANT you to be a happy employee. That's good upper-management right there.

    Assume the 20% incompetency from employees these days. Try to get any more and you're just beating your head against a wall. It's a much different work environment than it used to be.

    The Reds are the only team in the NL Central with a winning record vs. LH starters.

    That would include the Cards.

    How's his patience been? Getting any Walks?

    How's his Outfield Defense coming along? Looks more like Choo or like Stubbs?
    Haven't seen him play....walks look pretty consistent to this point.

    Maybe it's just me but I like seeing players have fun. Reminds me of the dumb stuff me and the boys used to do.

    Well, he needs everyday play to learn the Outfield properly. We've all seen what a lack of Centerfield playing time did for Choo going into this season. Should still not see Hamilton in September no matter how well he's hitting. Heisey is due back and will help Defensively, and who knows what we'll get from Heisey Offensively. He's a Jekyll and Hyde.

    Whoever Dusty "feels" he should use. He has few options, if any. He's really in a bad situation. Walt needs to give him some help very, very soon. Can't wait for the middle of July to do something about it.

    If I'm Dusty, I'd go with Leake in the 8th until a guy reaches base.

    Yeah, I'm sending Leake back out for the 8th.
    "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."

    If the Reds are in a race, and Hamilton is hitting .150 for the year, I still want him up in September as a pinch running candidate. Crazy weapon.

    Pretty pitch! 1 punch out through 6...3 of them in the 7th. Nice!
