    It seems to me that the ony cure is a quick shot of Womack.

    I've always thought one of the Reds main problems the past few years is that they are too nice. Pitchers rarely pitched inside and it allowed hitters to relax at the plate and then our pitchers would get rocked. Not to mention the nicest guy in baseball Sean Casey gabbing away at everyone he sees which is fine but it doesn't win you ballgames. I respect Sean Casey and his charitable work but I think just the fact he is off the ballclub will make the Reds win more games.

    Leyland would look good in a Reds uniform! I like him. He was out of baseball way to long.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    So, I take it they won't be trying to trade for Sean Casey?

    Isn't Kenny Rogers on that team?

    Didn't he just get order to anger management classes?

    Kenny has "Swagger"

    I found this thread while digging up old Jim Leyland threads, and thought it kinda ironic that Casey would end up with the Tigers after Leyland complained in March that the team was "too nice".

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Bonderman, Zumaya, etc had alot to do with it. But do not discredit Leylands work he has given them the extra bite they needed.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Re: Leyland: Tigers' clubhouse too nice

    Things like theTigers go a long way towards proof there is merit to the 'Fire Narron' crew. Now I know there is incredibly more talent in the Tigers rotation and that has more to do with it than Leyland vs Narron, but come on, these are/were theTigers who are running rough shod over 'the best team in baseball' and now the 'money ball' boys. It says a lot that Leylands 'old school' baseball is beating both the team with the huge checkbook, and the team thats the 'anti-Yankees' with thier new school philosophy.

    Could the Reds benefit from a stronger leader? Perhaps. Perhaps they also just need a hearty dose of Bondermen, Rogers, Robertson, Zumaya, etal.

    Sure is something to think about though.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Did this just come out? Why would he be ripping his team's personality in the middle of the playoffs?
