The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
I can't think of a single team I've ever seen in which the manager treated all the players exactly the same.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Looks to me like Narron's hustle or you don't play rule is nothing but an empty threat.
They clearly see some work ethic/attitude/approach issues with Edwin that they're trying to correct. You really can't criticize Phillips for those things. He's one of the real gamers on this team.
And I think EE is in danger of punching a ticket out of Cincinnati. Not saying it's the right move, but I think they want to get Hamilton in the lineup without getting Freel out of it (as has been said many times, Freel is the team's only true leadoff hitter). I think Edwin could be the odd man out and trade bait by the deadline.
If anyone listened to the radio broadcast last night, it's pretty obvious that those close to the team see this as a little more than just Freel going back to super-sub duty. It may not play out that way, but that's the way they see it right now.
You turned it over, get your butt back on defense...
You slanted inside and gambled, hustle your butt downfield and make the tackle...
You started loafing, but saw the ball hit the wall, bust your butt and get to 3rd base...
You cannot defeat an ignorant man in an argument!
