    Marty was on Lance's show today

    In a nutshell...

    Basically said EE has no business in there right now, because he can't be counted on. He is fine with Rich A. and Clayton playing everyday at 3B and SS and thinks it's funny that any fans would complain about it. Rich A. and Clayton have the experience and we can count on them down the stretch because they are "ready".

    Also ripped on Lopez, for falling asleep out at SS and we are way better off without him.

    Anyone else hear him? wow.

    Of course he had no data to support his position but when you're an HOFer you don't need any.

    Mr make the routine play Clayton has a .944 FP(which would seem to define making the routine play) whereas Lopez had .959 while with the Reds.

    Is there a way Matt can archive that one so we can take a listen? I mean, Marty wasn't holding anything back.

    I am completely ok with being 180 degree opposite of Marty's opinion.

    Seems like Marty's seen a playoff run a time or two before. Don't think you need a rookie who could commit as many throwing errors as he could hit home runs breaking the team's back in pressure situations.

    How about a rookie who wins the MVP of a play off series? He could do it. They would not!

    Outside members of the BRM, Marty seems to consistently disparage a lot of former Reds who've been shown the door.

    I don't know if the fact that the brass thinks we can "count on" Clayton because of his experience is sad or funny. I do know neither one is good.

    I heard it and wanted to just pound my head on the desk. Marty, while he didnt have much sway in what I thought before, now has even less pull. What kills me though, is people will eat this crap like its the word of God because Marty said it.

    Just out of curiosity, when is the last time Edwin made a mistake that hurt the ballclub?

    I HATE this attitude, I really do. I hate the free ride the veterans get from the media and management.

    Oh, and Marty, as big a lollygagger as Lipe was apparently, I never saw him fail to make a relay because he was blowing a freaking bubble.

    Exactly. He knows that in a playoff race, you play with the knowns rather than the unknowns.

    Edwin at third and Aurilia/Phillips at SS is an unknown. What's known is what they're doing, with is working just fine.

    Fans don't like it but defense wins championships. The Boston Red Sox "took off" when they traded Nomar and put a better defense SS in there. Krivsky and Marty come from that same school...

    Not only does the objective data compiled say different. My own subjective opinion says different than Marty. I can see with my own eyes that /Royce Clayton should not be out there.

    I feel like I'm going crazy. Is he watching a different game than me? Someone help me here.

    I guess I must defer to Marty, because he is the one in the Hall of Fame.

    Or the other night when he said Maj can't seem to handle being traded to a contender. "Reminds me of the kid Wayne Kirby in the 1970s"

    Um, memo to Marty before you make more irresponsible and incorrect comments -- The Nats were leading the WC race and in the thick of the NL East race at this time last year and Majik was doing quite fine thank you very much...

    July '05: 3.07 ERA (14.2 IP)
    Aug '05: 1.80 ERA (15 IP)
    Sept '05: 1.42 ERA (19 IP)

    Of course we all know those 48.2 IP's of post AS Break ~2.01 ERA ball were all just luck...
