    Oh Brother! Now I've heard everything!

    Drives me nuts!

    Sunday, April 30, 2006
    4/30 - Taylor Buchholzvs Elizardo Ramirez
    Filed under: the bench player Lisa Gray @ 10:18 am
    Taylor Buchholz, RHP vs Elizardo Ramirez, RHP

    The Reds have never faced Taylor and we致e never faced Ramirez. This is gonna be interesting. We壇 better start winning because we池e already 1.5 games behind and catching up is for the birds. I hope. hahahahaha

    Taylor Buchholz, RHP:

    1-1 in 2 GS and 2 in relief - 2 HR, 4 BB, 12 K over 20 IP with a 1.80 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and a .132 BAA

    - his last game, I知 sure yall remember, he came 1 out and 1 batter short of a CG 1 hitter against the Pirates. These Reds are a LOT more patient and there are a LOT more HR hitters, so Taylor better have his best stuff ready and not freak if he walks more guys than he痴 used to. Taylor had better be remembering how he pitched in his last game - because the way this team has ben playing, he痴 gonna need to pitch like that if he wants to win. And I sure hope this team is not repeating last year痴 habit of losing on the road because it took several months to kick it.

    - sad smile

    Yall know Adam Dunn wanted to play here for his hometown Stros. But the Organization didn稚 want any part of him and his strikeouts and his low BA and went after Preston Wilson instead. Anyone else think they picked the wrong strikeout king?

    Elizardo Ramirez, RHP, age 23

    signed by the Phillies out of the DR in 1999, came up in 04, pitched in 7 games in relief over 15 innings - 17 H, 5 BB, 3 HR, 9 K and 8 ER.

    traded to the Reds in August as part of the Cory Lidle deal and spent the rest of the year in the minors.

    Was called up last year when Ramon Ortiz went on the DL - went 0-3 in 4 GS and 2 in relief with 33 H, 5 HR, 10 BB and 9 K over 22.1 IP

    Called up this year when Eric Homerun Milton went on the DL. Faced the Nats, gave up 6 hits, 1 BB and 4 K - 2 ER over 7 IP (his best outing ever)

    Career totals: 1-3 in 4 GS and 9 in relief - 8 HR, 16 BB and 22 K over 44.1 IP with a 6.29 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and a .306 BAA

    If that's how they feel, more power to them. Or more to the point, more power to us.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    you act as if that is the first time you have heard it though....it has been said 15,000 times, and will be said 50,000 more times becuase well Dunn does carry a low batting average and does strike out a ton. He has lots of qualities, but the statement is pretty true to a point.

    As for if thats why the Astros didnt want him, well then they were obviously looking at the wrong numbers, but hey, thats their problem.

    Preston Wilson is lower BA, less power and no walks ... if he were a soda he would be LF Zero.

    Re: Oh Brother! Now I've heard everything!

    Yeah Doug, I think that's what TB is saying, that the Astros didn't want Dunn and thats why he's not playing in Houston now. It gives no possibility that Dunn was either happy here, or that the long standing rumors of playing at 'home' were overblown.

    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

    Yeah, I've heard it before... but I didn't expect to keep hearing it after AD signed his LT contract with the Reds.

    And, it's not exactly the same... this one has a whole different spin to it.

    I tried to read TB's comments - but I didn't understand it. I tried babelfish to translate, but I can't find the "translate to Astrolese" button
