    Absolutely nothing. You are correct. All I was saying that if this is the "big" move, it is not going to be enough.

    I am opened minded enough to agree that this move may have been good for other reasons, but without some changes in the pitching department, this move alone isn't going to keep pitchers like Wilson and Milton from giving up 6 and 7 runs a game. Unless Luis Lopez can pitch, we are still in a pitching quagmire.

    Re: Jiminez waived!!!

    [QUOTE=Johnny Footstool]His "inability to do the little things?" What, like working deep into the count, which he does as well as anyone in the league? You don't see that as a "little thing" that helps the team win?

    Nope, cause working that count more often than not had him looking catatonic as strike three wizzed right by him, time and time again.

    And little things like swinging at the first pitch on sunday with runners on 2nd and 3rd and a wild pitcher throwing.....hows that for working the count.

    Not sliding wednesday on play and then flat falling flat on your face trying to score on another.

    Little things that dont show up in box scores, or in idiotic fantasy stats.

    Yeah, nevermind the fact that by seeing 5 pitches per at-bat he was actually helping the team see more of the pitcher's repetoire and helping get the starting pitcher out of the game. That's basic strategy.

    And you're still ignoring the fact that he was coming out of his slump. But don't let that stop you from hating.

    Is OPS an "idiotic fantasy stat?"

    I don't mind the move, as long as it leads to something greater, as most others have already stated.

    It is when evaluating a player as whole, not just the offensive part of his game.

    But by ignoring his OPS and his ability to work the count, you're *not* evaluating the player as a whole.

    It's because any move this team makes is so ridiculous, as to be laughable. This move does nothing to help the Reds and may well prove to be more detrimental than keeping D'Lo on the bench.

    I for one wont miss watching D'Lo take a called 3rd strike down the middle and then complaining that it was a bad call. Shaking his head in disbelief. Swing at the ball!! But as a whole I agree, other, better moves could have been made at this time. Send a message to the pitchers.

    People keep bringing that up B. I must have missed it, because I don't remember any attitude problems with D'Lo. What exactly did he do?
