    What the heck is wrong with Miley. He deserves to be whipped and tied. Freel sitting and Aurilia playing. Unbelievable. What's this clown trying to prove? I've tried and tried to somehow understand this guy's thinking but I've come to the conclusion that he just plain doesn't. I don't think I can watch the rest of the season with this guy at the helm.

    In my mind, I'm going to pretend that this is Miley's lineup. And I will keep my sanity and all will be well.
    That lineup makes too much sense, paintmered.

    Re: Game thread 6-4-2005

    Is it wrong to say I want Aurilia to go 0-5 with 5 k's and make an error?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I really think DanO is the one who wants Aurilia in there moreso than Miley....regardless of what Dan says.

    Miley knows Lopez from AAA and knows what the kid can do. Dan brought in Aurilia to be the starting shortstop, which he clearly has been beaten out of.

    Lopez continues to play, but since Aurilia is Dan's guy (much like Romano over Kevin Kelly), he's in the lineup.

    Now last night's lineup there is no excuse for whatsoever.

    This is the first time I've said anything bad about O'Brien, but he needs to go, only for the fact that he hasn't fired Miley by now. I hope Aurilia reinjures himself today, and has to go on the 60-day DL. It would be a good birthday present for me.

    If, in fact, that is the kind of crap that is going on, at the expense of winning, with this FO and manager, then Lindner or Allen needs to step in immediately and give them both their walking papers.

    That would take a pretty catastrophic injury to land him on the 60-day DL. I want him out of the lineup, but I don't wish a severe injury upon him.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Do REDS' fans get on Miley above the home dugout, such as calling him stupid, etc.?

    Do they get on Aurilia to retire and save face?

    A pulled rib muscle, or hit-by-pitch on the wrist would make me very happy. He'll still get paid, but he won't be playing.

    I can only sit here and shake my head while my stomach is roiling and just want to HIT SOMETHING!

    For the love of God, what is DM thinking that, in his mind, this is justified. Aurilia seems to have more clout than any of the other players... is he in the mafia? He tells the press he's unhappy about not playing every day and here we go.... he's in the lineup. Griffey and Dunn told Miley they were upset they weren't in the lineup last night and they still sit... the two biggest threats in Coors field... and he couldn't even see fit to pinch hit either one of them. I hope they both have a blockbuster game tonight.

    What position is he playing tonight? I didn't even bother to look.

    Re: Game thread 6-4-2005

    TRF sitting alone in the KACV control room, monitoring Tucker Carlson and awaiting the beginning of the Reds/Rockies game... "This lineup blows." He said with just a hint of disgust. "Randa in the two whole? I could out run him. Nevermind the fact that he doesn't have a clue as to how to got on ba...." His voice trailed off as he heard a loud crash outside the control room door. Slowly he arose to investigate, when suddenly Dan O'Brien pounced from the shadows and drugged TRF.

    Hours later, TRF woke to 4 bright lights in his face. A voice from the shadows yelled in a booming voice... "RICH AURILLIA IS A VETERAN INFLUENCE THIS CLUB NEEDS." "Whatever." was TRF's one word reply, which was met with 5 masked men and stun guns. "RICH AURILLIA IS A VETERAN INFLUENCE THIS CLUB NEEDS." The voice repeated. Again TRF's sarcastic retort was met with pain. "JOE RANDA IS A PROVEN WINNER, AND KNOWS HOW TO HANDLE A BAT!"

    Hours passed. Or was it days?

    TRF woke, back in the control room at KACV filled with confidence that today's dgame will end in victory for his Cincinnati Reds. Equally confident that the reasons for that victory are Joe Randa and Rich Aurillia. Now why do I have an acidy taste in my mouth? And where did i get all these bruises?
    Suck it up cupcake.
