    Re: Reds Vs Astros 5/10

    The postgame from C. Trent:

    POSTGAME: Bob Castellini came out of the clubhouse before we were let in, he was in a much better mood than when I talked to him earlier today. "Great day," he said. "Nice way to go out before a big road trip."

    Jerry was happier said the Brewers will make a slide, so they're not panicing yet.

    Also, Weathers was looking for me. He was already talking to the TV guys while we were still talking to Jerry -- but got a couple of minutes where we talked later. He was like, "We're cool, right?" And I assured him we were definitely cool. And that I understood as much as anything, he was taking up for his teammates the other night.

    Dunn said he didn't care about the cycle -- he said he was going to make a point of thinking double if he did have a shot at a single there, just to show he didn't care about the cycle. He said, "If you're 4-for-4 with 6 RBIs, who cares what they are?" Said he'd rather have hit another homer than a single.

    Junior said that if Dunn had gotten the cycle, he was going to go out and take third base as his momento -- he said he did the same thing when Jay Buhner hit for the cycle.

    Also, didn't talk to him, but Mike Stanton sat at his locker ready for anyone to talk to him, just in case. I didn't see anyone take him up on it, but it looked like he was waiting until anyone who wanted to talk to him had that chance before he went to take a shower. Again, that's just how much of a pro he is.

    Oh yeah, Jerry said Sunday's starter will probably be Livingston or Dumatrait -- not Homer.

    Jerry: "Iím not saying Homerís out of it, but weíre going to keep him down there for a few more starts. Hopefully heíll continue to impress. Iím not going to get my hopes up for Homer quite yet. "

    Harang stinks on ice right now. He's in Uncle Milty territory with a 5.04 ERA!!!!! Wow! That's depressing, son!

    Amazing how well he did last year in a "contract year", ain't it boys?

    And Stanton needs to retire yesterday. He's fat, tired and he's well done toast. C ya mikey!

    It all adds up. Only a fluke of offense has saved him from complete meltdown.

    Three good starts and 5 clunkers. He's simply got to get it going. The season's over, but it'd be nice if he were at least a trade option at the deadline.

    Junior's intro "music" for 2x at the plate was the Soul Glo commercial from "Coming to America"...

    Winning is fun.

    5 games under, and "some" air is breathed into the team going at west. Gotta start somewhere.

    Needless to say, I'm not getting my hopes up.
    Stanton shouldn't have even gotten on the plane to go out west. Needless to say, I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I don't know about the rest of you but I don't give a lick about how much of a pro he is. I just want to see him get batters out. I think Paul Wilson is a Pro but I don't want him on this roster.

    This one gets rep too. It flows like wine.

    Stanton shouldn't sit around looking for an interview; he should buy a paper bag and cover his sorry freakin' head.

    Yeah, I'll take that stinking 5-1 any day of the week this early in the season.

    Wait a sec. For EE you are willing to overlook a complete lack of results.

    For Harrang, you are only focused on his results.

    What's the disconnect?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Multi-million dollar ace-designations? 28 years old? Starters have a bigger role and their results are much more important?

    (But I wouldn't recommend sending the guy to AAA even if they could do so).

    Look. Eddie needs to improve his game. He just needs to do it at the MLB level.

    You can't put EE out there every day and let him continue to struggle like that. He is costing the team runs and therefore wins. This team can still turn it around this season but if you keep him out there he will drag the team down with him. At some point his teammates are going to start saying " Damn, how hard is it to throw a ball from 3rd to 1st? " and things like that. This just might be the time for the Reds to trade him for some good young bullpen arms. The Reds need relief help and EE needs a new start. It won't be easy for some Reds fans to swallow but it ultimately might be what's best for the team.
