    BREAKING NEWS: Milton will NOT pitch today

    He was scratched due to "back soreness." Lohse will start.



    Hmmmm....a possible "DL" stint could be coming.

    Oooh....interesting to say the least. Good lord do I hope he doesn't make a single start for the Reds this year.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    The plot thickens...
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "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."

    It is NOT possible that Detroit would have any interest in Milton. I believe he's physically ailing therefore Milton pitching in the major leagues defies every principle of winning baseball. Why would Jim Leyland wreck what he has built?

    I doubt Kriv wants to be accused of peddling damaged goods after the JimBo/Majewski debacle of last season.

    The "DL stint" may be his only way to avoid the debacle that has become Eric Milton.

    You have to remember, he didn't sign him....he's stuck with him, financially.

    Matt,

    I'm interested in knowing IF the Reds regular season broadcasts will contain that 2nd-inning visit with the sportswriters this year. I think it's a major waste of time and an insult to my intelligence. ha ha

    I would be all for it if Hal McCoy were the only invited guest. He comes prepared with notes/something to talk about. The other two guys would show up with a 'why do I have to do this' attitutde and the discussion on the color of one's sweater or socks would eat up too much time.

    Right...Leyland built it the same way Sweet Lou has built the Cubs. Leyland is a good manager but does he scout, negotiate and sign players and their moves?
    "Sometimes, it's not the sexiest moves that put you over the top," Krivsky said. "It's a series of transactions that help you get there."

    I'm pretty sure it will....with C Trent taking the place of The Godfather

    I guess we'll know Monday
