    I would like this even better than him being manager. Anything that gets dan O'brien out is fine with me.

    Lou makes teams better and that would be great. Lou can not overcome bad managment as was shown in Tampa. He'll get the most out of what you give him but the Reds biggest problems are higher up in the organization.

    If he has a front office that will get him better, yes. He gets the most out of what he has, but as I said the problems in the Reds org is top down.

    I hate to start an argument, but I have to disagree with you there.

    I believe that this Reds team is alot WORSE than people realize. And this whole "the Reds are the #1 NL offense, just look at the numbers" just makes me laugh.

    You could put Pedro Martinez, Roger Clemens, and Johan Santanna out there in a Reds uni, I still don't believe they could take the wild card.

    You put Pedro, Rocket, Santana in a reds uniform and one of them wins 25 games, all three top 20 and the Reds approach 100.

    I would venture to guess that if you replace Wilson, Ortiz and Hudson, leaving Harang and Claussen to join the three above, you would improve the pitching from historically bad to top five in the major leagues.

    Don't forget Lou's team was actually built by Pete. Lou just takes the credit for it!!!

    This is 100% true. With three dominating number 1 pitchers the Royals could make the playoffs.

    Did Pete have Billy Hatcher? I think not!

    Good point. Pete didn't have Randy Myers, either.
