    Before you lay into me, I only halfway mean this. I've always been a staunch Casey supporter but his antics lately have me on the verge of reconsidering my view of his importance to this, er, team.
    no laying into you from me. I agree 100%

    FeLo sure is making it hard to continue missing Barry Larkin. But I do anyway.

    I miss Barry. I miss Davey. I miss Leo.

    I still love FeLo's game.

    Id consider a 4 or 5 year deal between $15 million and $20 million.

    If the Reds let him know hes going to be the full time shortstop then I think it wont be hard to sign him... All I know is if he continues this, the Reds better sign him to a long term contract because he is showing good signs of being of the future shortstop for the Reds.

    I just hope they dont do what they did with Dunn. If they are going to sign him, sign him this offseason and not those crappy 1 year deals either.

    Im sure he would bite as long as he knew he was going to be the full time shortstop.

    That'd be mighty fair... for the Reds. I'm thinking maybe 4 years with an option for a 5th at $3M, $5M, $7 and $7 and if the 5th year is picked up, $8M with a $1M bonus.

    Game segue - Stop telling me you're old school and BE old school

    Go back in time 1980s and think about what the manager would have done once Encarnacion got that one out single in the 8th. In fact, let's pick the managers of the Reds and Astros for the mid-to-late '80s for this little exercise - Pete Rose and Hal Lanier.

    Let's see, young kid been struggling a bit at the plate, gets on first with a one-run lead in the bottom of the 8th. Kids' got good wheels and the guy on the mound is an easy read with NO move to boot. Oh yeah, veteran hitter at the plate too.

    Is there any doubt in anyone's mind that the kid would have been off the races in the first three pitches? Old school, the school where these modern managers claim to have matriculated, would have that kid playing some baseball. In fact the first base coach probably would have greeted him with "Time to cut it loose kid and show 'em you got game." When a manager like Rose or Lanier thought they had an advantage, they pressed it.

    Yet instead of letting Encarnacion make something happen faux old school managers like Narron make him sit around and wait for something to happen ... and there's the rub. It's fine if these managers want to throw rocks at Billy Beane, but they're hardly making a case for an alternative form of baseball. Somewhere Jerry Narron, real old school baseball men like Whitey Ford are throwing rocks at you.

    They say speed never slumps, that is unless you throw a cage around it. What galls me about these modern wannabe seamhead managers is they're getting in between their players and the game. They aren't aggressive and they don't look to take advantage at the micro level. It's too bad because I remember back when a kid named Eric Davis got off to a rocky start in 1986 and after swiping a few bases and making some highlight plays his bat came around (of course his manager also thought enough of him to hit him at the top of a veteran lineup).

    Hey Jerry, stop sharing the constipation.
