    We have a lot more problems than pitching. We havent hit well or fielded well.

    He is addressing those things right now on the press conference, pitching, situational hitting etc...

    HAHAHA


    How bout 1/13 with runners in scoring position on saturday for example?

    How bout sunday Rich aurilla leading off the inning with a triple and we don't score a run that inning...

    Those are the little things we need to do. Put the ball in the outfield or atleast into play.

    That's just flat out awful baseball.

    Pitching is obviously our major problem but to say it's our only problem is flatout ignorant. This whole team is a mess.

    The way I see it, O'Brien is now out of excuses. He has his guys on the field taking his direction. If the Reds don't make an amazing turn around, he may get half of next season to prove he belongs as a GM. Then we will see...

    Miley made a lot of on field decisions that left the majority here scratching their head. Gullet has not proven to be the great pitching instructor he is reputed as. The facts just didn't support either staying here.

    I wonder if we can get a 'fly on the wall' in the clubhouse tonight...

    What is Narron's opening line?

    I say you pull the good ole HS baseball trick...

    "Batting Practice Saturday morning is optional" Coach says


    Monday, every kid not at batting practice isn't in the line up.


    NO ONE on this team is playing well enough to not need some extra practice.

    I expect it as soon as we have a 3 game winning streak.

    On baseball tonight they were talking about Dunn hitting in the 6 hole... and were talking about payroll. Comment along the line of the 6 hitter commanding 8+ mill after Arb... Kruck said something about should Dunn be in the 6 hole. and Gammons and Reynolds both said something along the lines of that's a complete other discussion we won't get into.

    The only hope is that none of the pitchers show up for BP and the Reds have to forfeit?

    It does have effect on the players in terms of their respect for the coach and belief that they have a chance to win. It would also signal that changes will be afoot immediately and for the better. However, yes, pitching is the vast majority of the problem, though run production could be more consistant. Hopefully Rhule will make a difference, though I don't expect enough of a difference can be made by a pitching coach with this staff.
