    Early fielding practice for the Reds today

    Unusual early session

    Looks like the Reds had a mandatory early workout. There was the usual extra hitting and the like. But this was no typical early session.

    They took fielding practice. Bucky Dent hit fungos into the gaps and corners, outfielders ran them and hit the cut-off guy. You usually only see that kind of stuff in spring training.

    After the club took infield -- again a regular season rarity -- Jerry Narron called them all in. He talked to them for about five minutes around the pitcher's mound. Bucky Dent also spoke, as did David Weathers.

    Desperate times, desperate measures and all that.

    We'll see how much good it did starting at 7:10.

    Looks like Weathers is really trying to fill that "Veteran Leadership void"

    I like what I'm hearing, but I sure do dislike John Fay's reporting this year. As my grandma used to say, "Who died and left him boss?".

    Saarloos to start; Jerry on workout

    Kirk Saarloos is the Reds' fifth starter for the time being. He'll either start Sunday in Aaron Harang's spot or Tuesday in Eric Milton's. The Reds are expecting Harang to be back for Sunday's game.

    Saarloos is happy with the move.

    "Any pitcher would be," he said. "I don't think the pitch count matters with me. I did the same thing last year and I threw 104 pitches the frist time out."

    Jerry Narron's explanation for the early workout: "Felt like we needed it after a day off. It's a beautiful day in Cleveland . . . "

    The session was unprecedented under Narron. The team had not done it once all of last year or this year. Judging from the body language not all the players were happy about. When you lose 12 of 15, you got to do some things differently. In other words, it's a big, old hang with 'em.

    ......and if you can't hit the cutoff man, you'll have plenty of time to think about it when you're living in a van down by the river.

    Yeah John Fay needs a reality check. He's got a napoleonic complex or something.

    If they could not hit that target than who can they hit?

    RIP Chris Farley! I loved that funny man!

    Well, we can see how much good that extra practice did.
