    Heisey, Izturis, Hannahan....all bonafide candidates to DFA, but I'm sure Walt likes the team.

    BREAKING: Votto just caught the ball Phillips threw to him. No error.

    Hannahan is being paid $2 million. If the Reds decide he's getting too bad, giving him his release won't be a major obstacle.

    At least Walt shored up the bullpen with the signings of Broxton and Parra.

    Well, you could trade him to the Yankees for Cano or something (Yea, Hanananahan is THAT good)

    Saturday nights are less national tv for me, I get the blackout every time. Every other night I can nationally or locally watch them.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    When was the last time the Reds DFA'd someone?

    Votto has made a number of errors and bad plays lately. He is in a fielding slump and it is disturbing because a first baseman obviously gets a lot of chances.

    His UZR rating is negative, which is highly unusual for him.

    Brantley said the Reds are playing tight and it does seem that way. Not hitting with men in scoring position, now fielding lapses.

    My guess is is that the Reds will play better when they get home and in a more comfortable, familiar environment.

    i remember you posting that you were against the signing. Or maybe I'm thinking of somebody else.

    True. But the point is why the hell did Walt give a two-year, $4 million contract to someone who no one else in MLB would have given a multi-year deal? Just made no sense at the time and makes even less sense now.

    I know, I know, $4 million is nothing in baseball. It was still a dumb move. That money could have been better spent elsewhere. Hannahan is below replacement level.

    And that's worlds apart from being televised nationally.

    Montana = Os/Yankees in a 9 to 0 blowout.

    I'm sick and tired of Fox Saturday baseball. I buy the Extra Innings package and have a zillion channels on satellite. Can't watch it on MLB.com either. No matter what I would pay, I still can't watch the Saturday night game I want. It is stupid.
