    Re: Game Thread for 5/22 Reds vs Indians

    I guess the thing that really bothers me about the current condition of the Reds is there appears to be no one who sees any problems on this club. Lindner (can't spell) says, "that's baseball." Miley and O'Brien come up with generalities and then blame D'Angelo Jiminez for the losing streak. The players we have are just as bad. Casey and Graves, who seem to be team spokesmen, become critics of the other players and get called in for "advice" (I know this is fairly common, but those two wouldn't be on my list). Gullett is simply not quotable or just doesn't talk to the press.

    So, we have a totally impossible situation that can only be cured by firing Miley, Gullett, and O'Brien. Then we need to rid ourselves of Casey (it pains me to say that because I like Sean), Graves, and anyone else we can get someone for (if indeed we can) and start over. Any lingering will just make it a longer time until we can legitimately win again.

    Sorry, but I'm glad the fans are upset with Danny. It may send a message.

    For what it's worth, Lane was 6th in Runs Created for NL OFers in April.

    Maybe Danny will feel so small he'll vanish

    I wonder if Graves can play 2B? It couldn't be worse than having him on the mound. Could it?
    Personally I think it's the worst-run organization in all of professional sports.

    As my old man always said: as a law-abiding citizen, you've got three weapons: your pocketbook, your vote, and your voice.

    Well, there are others, but you get the idea.

    So was Juan Encarnacion.

    And we all know how THAT'S going to work out.

    That's a legitimate stat. It doesn't take away the fact that given consistent playing time, he has the ability to put up big numbers. He needs 600 AB's/year for a couple of years.

    If you add up all his Runs Created since the start of the 2002 season (59.9 RC) and divide that number by his total plate appearances (421) then multiply THAT number by 600 you get 85.36 Runs Created per 600 TPA.

    That would have been good enough for 37th best ML OFer last season.

    average at best.

    When Juan Encarnacion hit a grand slam on opening day vs. the Braves Skip Carey immediatley quipped "well I think it's safe to say it's downhill for Encarnacion from here on out"
