    Re: Anyone watch Reds pregame? (significant)

    TeamBoone beat me too it!

    John Allen is with Chris and George right now.
    A bunch of the same: We are committed to winning.
    Have talked to some players.
    Talked to Coaching staff.
    We are trying hard.
    Its hard work.
    Will not rule out anything. And sites All Star game as a time when moves often start being made.
    Won't rule out player moves both additions and subtractions.
    Excited about players coming off DL.
    The fans want us to win.
    The nucleus of the team is good.
    Sites Lopez as a new piece to the puzzle.
    Pitchers (Wilson, Milton, Graves) have made it tough, everyone is trying hard and is dedicated.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Actually I think there was one little bit of info there. He had some one on one conversations with players he has known for a long time. (he said 10 years). That sounds to me like getting opinions on Miley.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    "We want to win"
    "Were working hard, were trying hard. noone is trying harderthan us.(uh John, Avis already took that)

    Bah humbug. Much ado about nothing.

    Hey John Allen: it should be taken as a given that you and the FO are "working hard", kinda having the same reaction to that non-news as I did to Danny Graves' "we are trying hard"...what do you want, a cookie? You are kind of SUPPOSED to work hard.

    Tell us what's being done to fix this or get out of the booth with your big bunch of nothing.

    SMOOCH SMOOCH MR.ALLEN said the tv guys. Notice he went on t.v. rather than with Marty on the radio. Pure p.r. and pure something else if you know what I mean.

    Why couldn't Allen have discussed Miley's abilities with these players that he supposedly trusts upon their return to Cincinnati this evening?
    And wouldn't Dan O'Brien fire Miley, unless he himself is also being terminated?
    Is it possible Allen went to Colorado largely to wish convicted felon and financier Michael Milken well in his efforts against colon cancer?

    Miley is history. Allen is just doing due diligence, talking to a few players first.

    Okay, so will Narron be the guy or will we see something like a trade to the D-Rays for sweet lou?

    Narron would be an interim, IMO.

    Then the Reds massive brain trust would have time to ponder Miley's successor.

    Sweet Lou 54 lineups in 54 games, that will play well around here.

    So is Miley's ineptness causing another Cleveland Crybabies incident here? Or is he just Don Hefner bad?

    Yeah, I m kind of playing the devils advocate here...I mean, I love Lou's spirit but we don't have the team that he needs to have around him...we need a teacher who can mentor relate and not be intimidated by the superstars...

    Cleveland crybabies? MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION.
