    If by "players" you mean "warm bodies," then you're right -- DanO usually had at least 23 warm bodies available on the roster.

    When some of those "warm bodies" are Eric Milton, Dave Williams, and Ramon Ortiz, you'd be better off with empty roster spots.

    I sure read this the first time through as calling Krivsky an "imbecile".

    I agree with Cedric and agree that often your many good points lose credibility when you post over-the-top comments like that one outside the game threads (those are more reactionary so I dismiss those as pure comedy).

    I must also need a remedial English refresher. To be less offensive and contain the insult towards its intended subject matter I would have written something like the following

    "His roster management is imbecilic"

    But then again what do I know...

    BTW, lately I couldn't disagree much with that last phrasing.

    This should get Kremcheck fired.

    It's getting hard to defend Mr. Krivsky.

    I'm curious as to why the ire towards Krivsky on this? Schoe said it doesn't affect his pitching AND what if the Reds asked about it and the Blue Jays said everyhting was "OK". Players do not receive physicals before a trade.

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    If only it would... sadly, the Teflon Doc is never wrong. Although I guess there's hope with Cast running the show, that maybe things will change.

    As I recall, Doc actually pays the Reds for the privedge of being their official doctor. I wonder when that contract is up.

    I don't think Wayne deserves an award for making us a .500 club. I'm not saying he stinks, but he doesn't deserve GM of the year.

    I would agree with that. Krivsky may win 3 years from now. He's laying his groundwork while maing patchwork. Minaya stuck to his plan, spent the money and improved the team significantly. Great job Omar. Even smarter for not taking the Reds post.

    While I approve of your admiration of TBL, the more relevant quote is "the dude abides".
    FYI - I happen to know the "real" Lebowski, and the movie cannot even come close to capturing the character of this HS classmate of the Coen brothers. Truth is stranger than fiction. Despite that, I love the movie - it is one of my favorites.
