    Observation on one of Marty's comments...

    Marty said today that Pena was one of the laziest players he's been around. I find that hard to believe. Though he's not a good outfielder, he has improved. He consistently plays winter ball. His plate approach has improved. And beyond that I don't think one can have a physique like his and not work on it. Does anyone know if there is an incedent(s) marty is referring to? PS- I'm for the trade I just found his comment odd.

    He's not racist towards anybody. He says what he feels, just like we do....the difference is, what we say doesn't get broadcast over a 50,000 watt station.

    Matt, does the fact that he's saying it over 50,000 watts make it more important for him to know what he's talking about and not necessarily say whatever he feels at the moment?
    It's not a slam on him but I agree with Redread that when he brands someone lazy it's really hard to shake the label.
    He's the voice of the Reds to a lot of people so if he calls Wily Mo or Felipe or Dunn or whomever lazy then it's gospel to alot of his audience.

    So if he's going to say that shouldn't it be something he's certain of, and not a situation where he just sees Wily Mo not hustle down the line and deems him lazy?
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
