    I'm starting to daydream about what Navarro could be.

    He'll likely just break my heart.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Price said they didn't think Phillips' injury was "brutal." They hope to have him back "sooner than later." #reds

    Hamilton been dealing with a tight hamstring since spring. Thinks it'll be OK in the couple of days. #reds

    People who want to criticize Walt for not improving the team are due for a nap themselves if you ask me. Very cranky.

    The issue is NOT during the off season .....or even in ST. It is once the season begins, he loathes making even obvious moves for the sake of 40 man roster shuffling of fringe players who are on it.

    Forget about making trades or waiver wire pickups. That though I see as a money issue, which seems to shut down and budget is set for the season once it starts.

    Hopefully he learned from trying that last year, but I guess it is hard on an athlete to admit mistakes though.

    Maybe guys will keep stepping up, and Price has moved other players around when things were not working. I trust Price to do the right thing if that situation arises.

    Yes. I mean whoever they put 4th needs to break out big as Dusty and now Price seem to think that only BP can handle that spot. Each time they try Bruce or Devin there....they give them a few games, maybe a week and that is it.

    This is going to seriously curtail Brandon's hitchhiking.

    The bummer about the steady stream of injuries that has hit the team this year is that, when healthy, I'm pretty sure the Reds are the best team in the NL Central.

    We're lucky this is happening before the break. Those extra few days can help a lot with nagging pains.

    If he plays hurt I think we have to put the blame on the manager. BP is being a team guy by doing that; it's stupid but admirable.

    This is clearly karma for what he did to reds44.
    "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."

    You know, this is the first time I have seen anyone mention such a thing. I'm so glad someone finally made this great point. My life is now complete.

    Not really, it's a sprained thumb not a bad wheel, and I think "barely hitting" is a stretch, and to say he'll "find a way to hit 4th" seems to imply Price will let him hit wherever he wants in the lineup, or that he'll even promote that idea. Dusty's gone.

    "We'll do due diligence to get much more depth on the injury," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It can be more significant than we believe it is and hope it is as this point in time. But right now, the initial signs are it's not a brutal injury and we can have him back sooner than later."

    And last year it was just a small wrist problem that lingered for 6 months.

    He has a .308 OBP and a .392 SLG. That is barely hitting. And he's hitting cleanup, or now third since Votto is gone. In terms of how the Reds lineup should go based on the quality of hitters, without Votto in the lineup, he should bat sixth at best. He's a worse hitter than Hamilton, Frazier, Bruce, Mesoraco and Ludwick. Phillips hasn't really hit in 13 months. Bryan Price has been here for all of those months. Brandon Phillips is still hitting 3rd or 4th in the lineup. I don't know who is making the decision for where Phillips is hitting, but it's a bad decision regardless and poor performance doesn't seem to matter.

    You don't "have" to blame the manager for any such thing.

    The manager can only go by what the player and medical team tell him most of the time. If the player get clearance to play, and says he feels good to go, then any manager will usually play that guy.

    Phillips, and most other athletes, takes pride in playing through things, and trying to avoid DL stints, and play through what they feel are minor injuries.

    Like I said, hopefully BP learned from last season's situation, and handles this hand injury with more caution.
