    Oh it is too heavy, it's always going to be that way though. I just think it's such a high ceiling there isn't a chance in hell the staff doesn't get a full season look at it. Wily Mo got so much better last year in plate discipline and ability to judge the strikezone that I can't see why he won't continue improving. Not to mention he is considered one of the hardest workers on the team.

    We know that is not going to happen.

    Although that doesn't mean that Kearns and WMP are not likely to be more productive in 2005.

    Re: Randa

    The real reason we signed Randa...

    8 sac flies last year per Lance on 1360, apparently filling the gap made by Dunn in that area... :mhcky21:

    You know I'm the first the bash the Reds if they breathe wrong...however, what they've done with a small budget is upgrade the rotation, bullpen, and infield

    ....At least they're doing SOMETHING...they did NOTHING last off-season

    Ohhhhh, if only Bob Boone were still managing the Reds he could have Randa on the bench and use him as a pinch hitter whenever Dunn came up with a runner on third and less than two outs. Even if it were the first inning.

    He got the bat on the ball more and K'd less.

    2003 - 1 bb 6% of his PA's
    2004 - 1bb 5.75% of his PA's

    2003 - 1 K 34% of his PA's
    2004 - 1 K 29% of his PA's

    2003 - Made an Out 74% of his PA's
    2004 - Made an Out 71% of his PA's

    ISO--Isolated power. SLG minus AVG, from .139 to .268 Which is the 16th highest for a 22 year old in MLB history

    I feel the same way. These moves aren't going to make us a contender, but hopefully will prevent us from being laughingstocks. At least DanO is making some effort this year. Some of the moves might backfire, but at least he's not resting on his laurels thinking that Larson and an undermanned bullpen will be "just fine".
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I know that and understand that. Plate discipline doesn't just include walks. It's learning to wait in the count for better pitches to drive.
