    Yup, and that average fan is taking in every word he/she hears as gospel. When a mediochre player is touted like that, the average fan is being mislead. They should be touting the players that deserve it and just make a passing comment about others... something like "Richie's going to be versatile off the bench".

    But the average (or casual) fan will never know they're misled because they could care less if Richie is really any good or not. As long as they can remember him making a few good plays, he's gold. That same fan is distressed because WMP has a poor work ethic (because Marty is a HOFer), Adam Dunn strikes out too much (remember Dave Kingman?), and wants to know when Pete's gonna be reinstated. They don't need Jerry Narron to mislead them.

    I don't have a problem with RA if he stays healthy (my concern for him) and hits the same as last year. Dude hat some pop and has always had some. I think in this park if he plays as many games as last year he hits 25 HR and the guys in the clubhouse seem to like him.

    Absolutely! All those involved should be more careful about how they talk about the players in a public setting.

    He can't play D, he can't hit on the road and we have better options at all spots he can play.

    Backup fine, starter..no.

    I always like when he calls himself a "baseball guy."

    Well gee....I'd sure hope so considering you work in major league baseball.

    Re: Narron quote

    Here is more Miley like quotes coming from Narron, note that Womack was listed 1st and 2nd base. The sooner he is gone the better but they need to bring a manager in that know to play the youngsters because right now the Reds don't have the pitching to win.


    Competitive spots: "Definitely pitching. The bullpen spots. We're looking for some guys to step up and pitch well for us out of the bullpen. A lot will depend on Paul Wilson and where he is, the fourth or fifth spot in the rotation."

    Third base: "I think all of us are hoping Edwin Encarnacion plays well and shows he can be a major-league player."

    Second base: "Tony Womack, Ryan Freel and (non-roster invitee Frank) Menechino. We've got a lot of depth there. That's nice to have."

    Where Rich Aurilia fits in: "Richie can play second, third, short, maybe even a little first base sometime. A lot depends on how things play out. Rich is the type of player who knows how to play the game. For a manager, no matter where you put him, you know he's going to play it right."

    Which relievers he sees as potential closers: "Every one of them. I really don't think it does any good to talk about it the day before we start."

    Fully agree RR. But then, that would take all the fun out of it on here for some.

    I remember a couple years ago when everyone was screaming and bragging on Brandon Larson as our future 3Bman. Whatever happened to him?

    Am I saying EE is another Larson? Of course not. Just saying that this team needs, along with patience, to exercise some caution with EE (age 23) in his development. No one denies that maturity is an issue with EE. And I think that is why guys like Aurilia and Womack are here.

    But what happens if he does go into a prolonged "tailspin"? Do we just suffer and stick it out, while keeping our fingers crossed and hope he comes out of it? PATIENCE is not something alot of Red fans don't have. In fact, alot of times, they don't even like to hear the word mentioned.

    We have HUGE question marks right now at 3rd and 2nd base. And I don't think anyone who supports the RA signing (and especially the Womack signing) feels these two are the longterm answers. But until kids like EE, and maybe either Olmedo or Bergolla, step up and prove themselves on a consistent, daily basis, then we are gonna see a platooning situation with these other two.

    I'm glad they signed Aurilia. It gives some something to talk about, and DO at the games, this year?

    Yes we suffer and stick it out, he has nothing left to prove in the minors.

    I fear EE struggles for about a week and loses the job for good to solid vet Aurilia, if Rich was just a backup fine..but I doubt that's how it goes.

    Don't even get me started on Womack, he was by far one of the worst players in MLB last year, release him and let Freel have the job.

    At least, if I recall that dark time, Larson was given plenty of opportunities and failed. I think we just want EE to get that same chance.

    Larson was a first round draft choice - a choice the Reds went with instead of Lance Berkman, IIRC. The Reds FO were going to try to get their money's worth and some pride w/Larson if they could - hence the many opportunities. IIRC, didn't the Reds get EE from the D'mitri Young trade with Detroit - but didn't the Reds also have to pony up some money for him as well? Whatever the reason, no one denies that EE has really nothing to prove in the minors (except for his defense, but the hot corner is one of the hardest to master) - but GAC was right when he questions whether or not we as fans, or the Reds FO have the patience to allow EE the time and games to mature fully as a major leaguer (the same goes for Wily Mo, IMHO). If the team is more than 10-15 games out - who cares? But if they are competitive....?
