    Pretty Good Insight

    Seriously good writing by Daugherty today on the state of the Redlegs. Just not ready for prime time. We need somebody to step up.

    Like Thom does so each time he speaks, so does PD demonstrate a very shallow understanding of MLB with every peck of the keyboard. Surprising he enjoyed the constant droning on about RISP by Brenneman during EVERY Cardinals broadcast.

    The only thing I am agreeing with at this time is the bonehead plays are occurring way too much this season. Not sure of the reasons or the fix, but that is the one dig I can dig.

    Any good points he makes are erased by his obvious trolling of those whose opinion's differ from his.

    His "attacks" on those who disagree with him make this a disgusting article to read.

    Terrible.

    If Joey Votto had Matt Holiday and Matt Carpenter hitting ahead of him....Good Lord...

    Here's what I want all you RBI guys to explain to me right now. Take two sentences and explain, with facts, how Brandon Phillips can be 2% below league average as a hitter and have all these riuns driven in.

    Just explain it. Two sentences.

    Go ahead-

    PD's baseball writing is as shallow as Thom's announcing, instead of emphasizing each play with a admonishing over used adjective like Thom he leans on cliche and baiting.

    Simply put he might be right in theory but he can't explain it without coming off like an arse.

    And if M. Latos is gonna be the ace, he best out-pitch Joe Kelly, no matter his mates’ ineptitude.
    Oh yeah, Latos isn't an ace because he didn't pitch a shutout against Joe Kelly.

    This is one of the worst lines I have ever read in a baseball column.

    What columnist actually lists "I told you so's?"

    It amazes me someone actually read this article and thought "wow, these are some good insights."

    I haven't read a Paul Daugherty article in at least 10 years and I am not about to start now. He is the worst of the worst and has been for eons. Every single one of his columns is pure drivel.

    Daugherty is a casual fan at best.

    Casual, unless his Pirates are winning. (This is from last year.)

    Confession: Iím not the biggest baseball fan. Mostly, baseball works best as a concept: The idea of going to a game can be better than actually following through. A starry night, a slice of moon, warmth. The perfect green symmetry dominating our vision for 180 degrees, like bright green paint spilling across a panoramic canvas.

    The home team, winning more than not.

    All wonderful. After three innings, then what?

    I get a little wiggly.
    "Interesting how so many fans are so concerned about trading prospects for established talent. This time, it involves acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect.

    I do it in a second"
    "By the time he left here, traded to Texas for some kid pitcher with attitude issues, Josh Hamilton somehow had gone from thrill-a-minute heartwarmer to entitled eggshell. The Reds dealt him for Edinson Volquez, a trade that is just a few floors and a fast elevator from Manhattan-for-beads and Robinson-for-Pappas.

    How about we bring him back? "
    "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."
