    I think the idea is that guys like Neifi Perez are less likely to beat you than guys like Barry Bonds, so the manager isn't going to spit into the wind and take on a Bonds (or others of his ilk) when they have a better chance against small fry like Neifi.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Yeah, I've heard coaches say that about walking guys like Bonds (in terms of strategy). But I'm talking about when they say it, as if to say, "we aren't going to be beat by their superstar." Maybe they still mean it in the original sense. Oh well. Maybe I'm just off my rocker.

    You know what the sad thing about tonight is. Claussen wasn't firing on all cylinders tonight like he was against the Orioles, gave up to many dongs and hits, but got the K's when needed and almost got the QS.

    Eric Milton would kill for a start like this. It just shows what a nightmare this year has been for Eric, he probably worships Claussen now hoping some of that good luck will rub off on him

    For anyone else who wants to know, I started a thread on it.

    Thomas Pauly is out for the season

    Same old Reds development system

    Don't see this as a big problem unless he tore up a labrum. Let him replace Nelson as closer in AA next year. Though if they continue to start him, he may get seriously injured.

    I see it as a big problem. An endemic problem.

    Kid comes in, healthy, able to pitch, puts up solid numbers.

    Then gets injured.

    If he has such poor mechanics, then it's the Reds job to fix those right when he signs. That's what the developmental and instructional leagues are for.

    Just very frustrated, Pauly was an excellent prospect for the Reds who's now out for the year. Not a pretty picture.

    You don't understand jm, do you think you could "fix" Scott Williamson? That is the type of pitcher Thomas is. I am not surprised he had a moderate injury.

    i gotta side with Aronchis about the kind of guy Pauly is. i do think it's an idicment of the Reds developmental staff as well, as they should have recognized that he's a huge threat to himself starting, and converted him to the pen by now.

    Have I ever mentioned I hate when the infield is played in?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Me too, it rarely works and most often allows another baserunner. Some managers hate to... like Earl weaver.
