    "I'm telling you, those Nationals fans made a difference for him," Dan Kearns said. "They talk about Cincinnati being a great baseball town, but they look for you to strike out so they can boo. Here they were, Washington, in last place, and they cheered everything."
    Wow, Dan Kearns has caught on to us. How did he find out I get my jollies driving two and a half hours and forking out a hundreds bucks or so just to boo people.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I have no problems with Kearns, either, and wish he were still in RF for the Reds.

    As far as his dad goes, that's just a dad talking. It has to hurt to hear fans booing and cussing at your son.

    I wish him the best, except when he's playing the Reds!

    Reds fans are frustrated by a six-year slide after decades of living high on the hog. DC fans are in "Yippee, we've got a team!" mode.

    Though Cincinnati should be careful not to become known as the little Philadelphia. It's become a bit of tough environment for young players.

    I think Austin feels a lot bigger now that he's in Washington and away from all the booing.

    As usual with Kearns, he accepts no responsibility for anything and blames his struggles on someone else.

    It just seems that Austin got too "comfortable" in Cincy. If it takes a trade to wake him up, then I wish him the best and hope that happened.

    Then again, he just signed a lucrative deal. Sounds like he's feeling comfortable again.

    HA! HA HA!, but true, I doubt that Denorfia makes the opening day 25 man roster.

    He was way too comfortable after his first half of his rookie season. Kearns then got fat and lazy and didn't show up to play in shape. I think many cincy fans think he squandered his talent. If you want fans to be happy when you are in last place what kind of competitor are you?

    With every losing season that passes, Pete Rose moves just a bit faster and hustles just a bit harder in people's memories.

    If the Reds don't win a pennant soon, fans are going to start believing he was on first base before the ball was even pitched.

    Its so funny how much Washington is Reds EAST. I didn't know Boone was the Nats' director of player development... who's next? Uncle Carl?
    Tom Shearn... who knew?

    The Nats do have the new stadium opening up next year, so that should hopefully give the team a bit of bounce in terms of payroll. But yeah, losing Soriano and getting nothing for him would not exactly lead me to the same conclusion that Kearns came to.

    Imagine the defense in the OF with Denorfia and Kearns. Makes me weak in the knees, and brings a tear to my eye.

    Ah, what might have been.
    Huh? Kearns has a very good arm and makes plays on the balls hit near him. But he doesn't cover a lot of ground. When Freel took over in right field last year, it was obvious that he was getting to many more fly balls than Kearns did.

    Indeed I'm sure that one of the reasons Krivsky obviously wanted to move Kearns was that an outfield of Griffey, Dunn and Kearns was, collectively, just too slow.
