    Re: Gammons: Brewers have more staying power than Reds (ESPN News)

    Gammons did say last night what a joy it was to watch Griffey play the OF. I actually always though Gammons was ok on the Reds. I mean we stunk for years. We were lucky to get any face time, but lately we're on every night. If it wasn't for Detroit it would be even more.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    The Reds will finish higher than the Brewers as long as they have a special assistant named Dan O'Brien.

    No question. But I would respect him a lot more if he would note something like "hey, I killed them back in 2003 for this, but Harang has been far better than I thought he would be and the Reds have benefited"...matter of fact, that would make me enjoy his analysis even more, whether it was about the Reds or any other team.

    Having a strong opinion? No problem. Pretending, after facts are in when you were wrong in your previous opinion that the previous opinion in fact did not exist? Less OK.

    Here would be a fun exercise for the national types...WHY are the Reds confounding their expectations, maybe spend a minute or two on it, that's all. Won't be too hard.

    Perhaps the team won't keep it up, many of us, including myself, believe that to still be the case, and yet, have had to admit that the team has far exceeded expectations so far. The reasons for that are rather interesting, actually.

    And, props to whoever up thread noted that if the Phillips thing had happened in reverse that the carcass of Reds executives would be hanging from every Gammons column and piece. Cleveland really screwed up with him. Even if he regresses at this point, Cincy has gotten a rather stout bit of production from Phillips, both offensively and defensively, for absolutely nothing. Pretty feckin' brilliant, actually.

    I was thrilled with the trade for Harang. In Fact I was thrilled with the Boone and Williamson trades too. Still am. Which is odd because despite the fact that Arroyo is pitching ver well, I wasn't too happy about that one, and continue to think the Reds should have gotten more.

    Aren't the Brewers looking at Dave Williams?

    Nuff said.

    And what ex-Reds GM now works for the Brewers?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
