    Krusty you must've read my mind. From the ESPN transactions list

    Boston released Terry Shumpert (pass)

    Pittsburgh waived Joe Beimel (ditto)

    The Marlins said "buh-bye" to Brian Banks (ask ramp about him)
    Never overlook the obvious

    As of right now the backups on the bench may just be as bad as it can be, we better HOPE that the starting 8 can play 9 innings and 162 games

    I am serious about this in games that Jimmy Haynes is not starting he is the Reds 2nd best pitch hitter after Pena maybe third because I think Castro might be better than him. 8^(

    4256, so you want Haynes to do a Brooks Kieshnick in reverse? :idea: It would be interesting if, instead of DLing :haynes: to start the season, the FO sent him to the minors to learn a position.

    OK...I've been AWOL. Too daggone busy and not happy about it. I've tried to keep up. Heck, i even got to listen to today's game (I was in the car and my new Acura TSX has the best AM radio--from 330 miles away, WLW was strong!).

    I was wondering about Sanchez. His stats looked good and today, he couldn't get anyone out. I fear this decision. Any opinions?

    Oh yeah, being AWOL means that I got a surprise when I logged on. Surely, we won't be Cubs or Dodger Blue on Opening Day...will we?

    I am still trying to figure how Jacob Cruz doesn't make this team. Like others have said, this bench is ill concived. Going with 12 pitchers makes no sense to me either. If Reidling is moved to the fish, could it be for a Hollandsworth type?
