    It's amazing how fast Reds pitchers can fall apart.
    Yeah, just wait untill Narron gets ahold Homer Baily.

It was a good example of a manager waiting until the game was out of reach until he finally pulled his pitcher when it wasn't late in the game. I'm not suggesting Narron did this tonight, but it helped confirm the notion that Jerry's not really any different than most ML managers. They all pretty much do the same things most of the time.
    Ii's going by the book. All "old school" type managers are issud a copy.

    Funny story: One of my wife's two brothers recorded a Cardinals game on a cassette tape. That Christmas when their other brother and his wife were visiting home, they were driving somewhere. Jim had the tape in his tape player in his car and put it on. They're driving along for about ten minutes when the wife says, "What are the Cardinals doing playing in December?".

All the talk, even from Krivsky was that Chris Denorfia would replace Kearns, and after three or four games, Narron or whoever gave up on that plan. Deno was sitting the pine and mostly has since though the excuse of leaving him in Louisville was PT and Kearns was the replacement. It's not working.
    I'll agree with the assessment on the failed post-trade strategy, however I back up my initial analysis.

    Post All Star

    Player 1: 50 AB 16 H 5 2B 1 3B 2 HR 6 RBI .320 Avg .424 OBP 1.004 OPS
    Player 2: 57 AB 17 H 5 2B 0 3B 1 HR 7 RBI .263 Avg .411 OBP .814 OPS

    Guess who is whom?

    So yes, Ryan Freel has "made up" for Austins production (so far). And if Austin were around, Freel wouldn't be playing.

    As for FeLo...his LH bat is missed...no doubt. Clayton and Castro make too many outs.

    As for the team:


    To make sample sizes the same:

    18 games Pre-All star game:

    Runs Scored: 90 (5.00 per game)
    Runs Allowed: 103: (5.72 per game)
    7-11 in W-L

    18 games Post All Star

    Runs Scored: 80 (4.44 per game)
    Runs Allowed: 86 (4.78 per game)
    10-8 in W-L



    Different opponents, different results.

    So the team was sliding before the break...changes its composure, catches some fire and then resumes its slide. That's all.

    Is the team better or worse? Probably more balanced, but not necessarily better. Instead of losing 10-5, we lose 5-3.

    It's just a different kind of suck now.
