    David Ross

    I'm worried about him. He didn't look like he had a clue today. I just thought last year it looked like he got tired and pitchers started to figure him out a little. Today it seemed like he will struggle vs. bad pitchers. I guess we'll see more against Lilly, a LH, on Wed.

    He did look really bad on his two strikeouts.

    Definatly looked bad today, but one 3-4 game with two homeruns and everyone will be talking him up again. It's too early to say if he's lost it or not, even if he has.
    "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."

    He made a nice play throwing a runner out at second.

    IMO, he's been extremely overrated. He .203 after the ASB. I'm expecting a not so productive season and a eventual platoon with Javy...with Ross getting the short end.

    I don't know what kind of jump Lee had on that play, but the pitch was as close to being a pitch out without being a pitch out as you can get. It was high and outside and it allowed Ross to catch the ball out of the crouch and get right into his throwing motion. He also had a clear view of the runner. I would expect most every catcher to get the out on that pitch.

    He just looked totally lost... that's the worry. And his post-ASB numbers from last year aren't confidence inspiring.

    I thought Lee got a pretty good jump, and at the time I expected him to be safe. I was surprised that Ross got him. Your explaination of the virtual pitchout clears that up.

    I've always thought that Ross actually gets rid of the ball quickly and throws well. It's the only part of his defense that I think is good. It's odd I think he's above average in throwing out runners but far below average in blocking balls. That WP on Harang should have been a PB, actually he should have turned his glove over and stopped it easily, it looked very lazy.

    It honestly has nothing to do with him going 0-4. It was more about him not having a clue when up at the plate.

    From my vantage-point, Lee got a good jump off first.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
