    Watching Hancok Today

    He is thinner than half of the Reds
    His stuff moves and is all below the stomach
    He escaped a 1-3 jam with one out
    But I am sure we could not have used him because he ate too much. What a pasquinade, a farce, a feuilloton, a complete disgrace. He is better than ANY of our relievers.

    That clinches it, FCB and redsupport are actually related.

    The point remains that he did not do what the team asked him to do in the off season and for that he was released.

    If he would have stayed in Cincy would he have pitched as well? Would he have been a "team" guy? Would the others on the team who needed the same sort of message he got by his release have responded?

    I see as much minus to keeping him as I do plus only because we don't know how he and the rest of the team would have responded to the management and FO had he not been called into account.

    .
    Yep.

    Keep beating that drum.

    Wayne should be severely censured by his boss for even allowing Jerry Narron to make that call.

    You can't let a nobody like Narron to make important roster decisions like that.

    That's the point.

    Yeah, all those 'team guys' have sure helped us out so much the past few years.

    Who else got any sort of message? I don't think it made Dunn or Valentin pass up seconds or thirds at the buffet table. Oh wait, those guys are the image of Adonis himself, the Reds didn't tell them to lose any weight. At least that's what I'm forced to assume since neither was non-tendered for reporting to camp fat.

    So...
    they either actually believe Dunn is in peak physical condition
    or
    they don't think being in peak physical condition is important for your best player in an OF position
    or
    They did tell Dunn to lose weight, he ignored them, and they didn't do/say a damn thing b/c he makes 9 million dollars a year

    Josh Hancock would have made a HUGE difference in the first half of the season when the offense was clicking and the bully was blowing games. Getting rid of him for nothing was and still is one of the more silly things the Reds have done in last decade, IMO.

    Didn't seem to be such an unpopular move when it happened...he wasn't exactly setting the world on fire the previous season.

    Except when, in my case, it was foresight.

    And the point is you keep players who perform, regardless of weight or whatever idiotic arbitrary rule you impose on the ballclub.

    Dunn is like 35 lbs over weight now I wonder if Krivsky has set a weight for him to be in the spring? I hope that the entire team comes into spring training in much better condition.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Muscle weighs more than fat. That is all I wish to contribute to this thread.

    With Hancock we win our division. That is my belief and I am sticking with it. Anyone who believes that Hancock wouldn't have added a few extra wins over the junk that we sent out most of the season just didn't watch the same team that I did.

    This is my biggest gripe with waynek. He made some really bad decisions that costs us big.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
