    Dusty does not get the best out of his teams.

    Just one of those days. Again.

    This team is just steamrolling towards a playoff spot.

    Some people have had an agenda against Leake for three years, though, and they will use every opportunity they can to say something bad about him.

    2. Hanahan is having the exact year I expected from him based on age projection.
    Hannahan is a bench player with a very solid glove. I'm really trying to understand why we're even concerned with him at all. He'll run into a couple of HR's and hits here and there, but he's on the team for his glove.

    3. Choo was not an upgrade in Center. He's an upgrade in Left and an upgrade to the top of the order. Either sign only Choo, only Ludwick, or Ludwick to be the 4th Outfielder.
    Choo was an upgrade in center. Overall. Yes, he's a downgrade defensively. But take offense and defense as a whole, yes he's an upgrade. But here's the thing...without Choo in center...who do you have playing center?

    4. There's always a way to make a trade happen. Most players are available at the right price. There were three Cubs available (not Soriano) who would have helped greatly and cost little.
    2 things. Our farm system is considerably depleted over the past year or 2. And the guys we DO have down there are struggling mightily this season. Trading them is selling low on them as trade chips. And it takes 2 to tango. Trades don't just happen, you've got to have a trade partner who wants what you have.

    5. $2.5M more would have been available had Rick Sweet been Manager instead of Dusty.
    And you're assuming that the team would've played better with Rick Sweet? I'll never get the Dusty hate around here. Never.

    6. For the record, I have yet to see a poster on this site who has supported Walt and the two previous G. M.'s as much or as well as I have, so you're suggestion that all things that happen will only generate a complaint from me is nothing but empty banter.
    I agree that Walt hasn't accomplished much this season...but we're only seeing the end results...not the process. People seem to assume he's not trying hard enough. I don't.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Well, at least Frazier is being more patient at the plate. Now maybe we can get a hit next inning.

    If you pump in strikes (quality of those strikes doesn't matter), you will beat the Reds with ease.

    Ok. The hitters aren't producing sufficiently.

    How this team plays in Sept. and Oct. will define the 2013 Reds. If they play .500 ball for three months in the middle of the season then so be it.

    Baseball is an ironic game. Take away the good defense and Leake might not have reached 100 pitches. There's zippo that is controversial about making that observation about this game.

    I wonder what it would take to get Venable from SD.
    "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."

    Will Venable always looks like a great player when we face him. No clue why. He's well below average against everyone else.

    It's an absolute joke to get one hit against Ian Kennedy.

    4 runs in 2 and 2/3 of a game.
