    LaRue = Web Gem (at 3rd)

    Don't know if any one else saw this. I was flipping back and forth between the Reds and Tigers/Royals game and Jason LaRue just made a diving stop at 3rd base and got to his feet to gun out Ordonez. Who knew he had it in him. In addition to finding it humurous to see LaRue diving around at 3rd, I also find it humurous that the Royals are so hard up for offense that they are finding LaRue a place to play in the field just to get his BAT in the lineup. HMMM.

    LaRue had 3 starts at 3rd base for the Reds in 2001. He has also played some outfield before as well for the Reds.

    From the performance of our pitchers since LaRue took over in Cincy and then the change when he was not the everyday catcher I would beg to differ.

    I vaguely remember him in the outfield for the Reds a few years ago. The Royals are definitely trying to make chicken soup out of chicken sh...well you know the rest.

    the two catchers we've had are one year wonders. ross isn't even hitting my little brothers weight, and valentin is a great pinch hitter, but not very good defensivly.

    Watch Krivsky trade Encarnacion straight up for that slick-fielding LaRue.
