    Kearns and Lopez are not your saviors.

    If you try hard enough maybe you can get an effigy burning going for the guy who took over the team on Febuary 8th.

    No no WOY, it's totally reasonable to expect total perfection and that 15+ years of franchise abuse would be undone in 8 months.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    That's because of their great general manager. Maybe we can offer him enough money to come back and run our team. No thanks, been there, done that, let's look to the future.

    couldn't something be worked out with one of the clubs that has a big ballpark...milton's bad, but he's good for the occasional solid outing...not that i'm defending him, but i think he has 14 quality starts, of which he took the loss on 5...problem is when he's bad, he's very, very bad...

    if you're a Reds fan the future looks bleak unless a bunch of guys found a new level of performance this year.

    Why are you posting a reasonable sentence? Don't you know you are different, and WayneK's an idiot? Drink the Kool-Aid man.



    You know after 6 months that a person can't do his job, I guess I don't have the extrasensory vision like people who want to drop kick Wayne K to the curb.

    The performance over the last two months speaks volumes about this team.

    The future of this franchise has looked bleak since 2001. And the new GM needs to be run out of town thanks to inept previous management decisions.

    Building a baseball team takes time, not some fairy godmother waving her magic wand. See you later when the bandwagon's rolling again.

    So what should we do, start rooting for the Yankees? Spend the next year continuing to whine about Kearns and Lopez? No thanks. As far as I'm concerned the future is a lot brighter than a year ago simply beause Linder and o'Brien are out of the picture. Some of Wayne's moves worked, and some didn't, but I still am more optomistic that we now have people running things who know what the're doing. Let's hope this organization will spend a little money, make a few decent trades, and start restocking the minors. Its not like the competition is all that formidable.

    The last 2 months?

    I'd say the stretch between 6-5 and 7-5 was the forebearer of what it could become.

    The last 3 weeks has been just like that stretch, up until the SF series in late August the Reds had won 8 series, lost 4 and split 1, true in August they were 8-10 up until the West Coast swing, but they were not as smelly as they are now.

    2 months of bad stink yes, but 2 seperate months from where I'm sitting.

    the future stinks and this GM blew off his own foot by drafting Stubbs and the trade of Kearns/Lopez for nothing in return. This team didn't really move forward in any appreciable way unless a number of career seasons are actually new levels of performance(which is highly unlikely).
