    It is very true that some people have an agenda about Leake. I'm not one of them.

    Welp, looks like we're giving San Diego another gift-wrapped run.
    "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."

    Baker needs to throw some bases and get the Reds madder than spit. It was probably a good call though.

    Defense again. I would go to the bullpen here.

    Great defense.

    Fair enough. But this was to be an easy stretch in our schedule. Counting on a hot September is a big IF. I'm more inclined after 4 1/2 months to say they are what they are. Lowered expectations are a good thing w/ these guys.

    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.

    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.

    5. $2.5M more would have been available had Rick Sweet been Manager instead of Dusty.

    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.
    1. No, there is no logical solutions. Every single year the Reds, and every other baseball team for that matter, have to rely on young players who may or may not be able to play at the big league level. There is no way to avoid this.

    2. After having a .793, .647, .623, .719, and .654 OPS over his career, you knew that Jack would have a .581 OPS this year? You should be employed in the Reds' front office.

    3. A Ludwick-Choo-Bruce outfield is absolutely better than a Ludwick-Stubbs-Bruce outfield. There is no arguing that Walt upgraded the outfield in the offseason.

    4. If there were so many trade opportunities available then why were there only 4 trade deadline moves made? It isn't because every team is satisfied with there lineup. No one was selling.

    5. I doubt Sweet would be able to handle the clubhouse as well as Dusty. Changing managers could definitely disrupt this team's balance when you consider what a great player's manager Dusty is.

    6. If you complain about the Choo trade, then you obviously hard to please.

    That odd top of the inning may have woken this team up.

    The team behind us in the wild card has what I think is one of the best managers in the national league...he gets a lot out of his players...I'm a Gibson fan...no nonsense manager. Reminds me a lot of Lou in 1990
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    I know since it can't be measured by numbers most think it doesn't matter but would love to have seen Dusty completely lose his mind out there.

    Outstanding performance from leake today. He pitched great in SD before Chappy blew it for him. Hope the offense will help him out today.

    Great start by Leake. It would be a shame to see yet another great start wasted.
