    Just Watched hancock

    I know this is redundant but if the Reds had kept hancock they would have at least five more wins. He has excellent stuff, making the Dodgers look invisible.

    I always thought the guy could be a respectable reliever. Turns out he's even better than I thought.

    He throws an incredible slider , does not look corpulent especially compared to Yan, and he can outpitcher Weathers even while indulging his epicurean and gustatory senses

    One of the biggest bonehead things the Reds have done in quite some time, IMO. I've heard all the reasons why it was the right thing to do, and I normally can see the other side of an argument, but in this case I just can't understand it at all. It's either policy or it's not. I loathe token gestures meant to send messages, especially when the message will only impact the players on the margin.

    How do you figure the Reds would have won 5 more games with Josh Hancock? It doesn't take a whole lot to make the Dodgers look weak.

    He had to be moved. There are FAA regualtions on the amount of weight you can put on an aircraft. The Reds had a choice, either him or Adam Dunn.

    Is David Weathers a poster boy for asceticism or abstemious indulgence?

    I was disappointed the Reds let him go. He hurt himself by saying he would be in shape and coming into camp out of shape though.

    Really? Even though Todd Coffey has blown how many saves in the 9th?

    numerous games needed seventh or sixth inning zeroes put up. The Reds have sustained rallies from down one or two runs but the bullpen has magnified those deficits from one to two runs to five runs.
