    I knew the game on Saturday or Sunday after he made an error that he'd be gone. It was precisely the sort of thing that Narron & Krivsky are trying to eliminate.

    I've always been a little puzzled as to the angst at which guys like Bellhorn, Cosby, Wise, etc bring to the RZ...clearly, as the last week has shown guys are needed for games when we need to rest a player or someone(s) is injured...we need spare parts at Louisville in some cases...its the end of spring training, now we cut loose the spare change and go to work...

    As for the others, Castro is a defensive specialist infielder (FWIW) and Moeller is a defensive specialist catcher...sexy or not, these moves fit the profile of what Krivsky believes helps teams win...I really do think if we had, let's say Lenny Harris instead of Javy Valentin as the "pinch-hitter deluxe" that we'd have much less problem with Moeller...I prefer for our 2nd catcher to be good defensively (and yes, I'm basing that assessment off of what I've read, I don't tangibly know that for sure)...

    A pinch hitter instead of Javy would be acceptable and there would be less issue with Moeller. Problem is, Javy isn't a proto typical pinch hitter, so no one is happy about it.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I have no problems with Moeller on this team. I DO have problems with Moeller AND Valentin on this team.

    If we carry a third catcher, I'm going to cry. I think Deno is the obvious choice, especially since we're being told that the team is trying to gravitate its way towards pitching, speed, and defense (I love traditionalm NL style baseball!). There's not point in having Moeller if we've already got Javy. And Deno adds defense and speed to an outfield that lacks it, not to mention depth for when Griffey takes his first trip to the DL.
    Here's to another record-breaking season from Adam Dunn ...another 40 homeruns (all coming with nothing on the line) and 200 Ks! We Want King Jay!!

    What am I missing....If the starting outfield is Dunn, Freel and Jr; that would leave Deno and Hamiltion on the bench as pinch hitters. Both run and hit better than Javy. (if the starting outfield includes either Wonder Boy or Deno then you would still have 2 quality outfielders, hitters and runners on the bench) They just don't know how to put on the catcher's gear. Louiville being a quick 2 hour drive away, if one catcher goes down another could be in Cincy the next day. If its an away game that's another issue but lots of teams deal with that issue. If one of the outfielders goes down the same thing applies. Why carry 3 catchers just to have Javy as a pinch hitter. Again, what am I missing.
