    4 bad plays in 2 nights for Clayton!

    I count 5 plays in 2 nights where Clayton should have made the play and didn't. Only one of those got charged with an actual error. The lolly gag play tonight which Dunn contributed to was horrible. He was actually blowing a bubble when he caught Dunn's relay and looked totally disinterested in the runner. Surely Narron and Krivsky realize Clayton was not a defensive improvement. How long before they make him a bench player and start Castro or bring up Olmedo?

    You know, they cut Tony Womack earlier in the season. But they actually traded for this mongrel. What gives?

    I think that something will be done before Monday. I would also imagine that Castro will start on Sunday.

    I know it;s been discussed before, but I think we would've stood a better chance tonight with Aurillia at Short, and EE at third. Or evne Castro at short i an upgrade offensively and defensively. Clayton's hitting .105 in the last week!

    regression to the mean. He has NEVER been a good offensive player, period. He is the RH SS version of Tony Womack.

    Like I said when the trade went down, I would have been happier if it was a 7 player trade(minus Clayton).

    Phillips to SS Aurilia at 2nd and EE at 3rd.

    Re: 4 bad plays in 2 nights for Clayton!

    Do all you guys begging to play EE realize just how bad a .903 fielding % is for a 3rd baseman? Its the worst in all of MLB for any starting 3b. As far as shortstops go, Clayton has the 6th best % in all of MLB.

    Look at past championship teams and you will notice the managers place more value on defense and pitching than offense. This isnt the Reds we have seen the past few years. Sure its fun to watch EE bat, but he makes 1 error per 30 innings, thats unacceptable for a 3b. Plus, if you remove hishot April where he had 20+ rbis hes been an average hitter.

    Is he a future allstar? Possibly.

    Would I rather win some games in 2006 or watch him cut his teeth? Id rather win.
