    Special K on the Radio

    JLB5 posted this on the Sundeck board...

    Worth a listen. Seems he's not too high on Votto's D and Homer is scheduled to start in Sarasota tomorrow. Talks about why guys like Cueto aren't up and some of the moves like Coutlangus going down (said he was walking too many and 1st batter faced reaching base too often).

    I can tell you that I would never ever want to be in an ally fight with Special K...dude doesn't hesitate to take the bull by the horn.

    These shock jocks do nothing for me. I'd be surly with them, too. But, points of interest....

    Krivsky really likes Guardado. I would not be surprised to see him back next year, even at 3+MM.

    Krivsky likes Mackanin a lot -- really praised his handling of the blowout Monday vs Atlanta.

    He likes Bruce a lot -- forecasts a "great career."

    The rest was pretty much by the book -- won't rush prospects, vets help buy time for prospects, won't commit to anything vis-a-vis 2008 (re: Keppinger).

    Kudos to the shock jocks for asking why the Reds are wasting time with some riff raff instead of seeing what a guy like Votto can do though. Most lob in softballs and while this isn't hard hitting journalism, its pretty good for sports interviews considering the subject matter.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I think that was the best interview that any 1530 homer guy has done in a long long time. Whether you like Doyle or not he didn't kiss up to the guests like a lot of host do and asked him some tough questions. He basically asked him the questions that all of us on RZ wanted to have answers to.

    Krivsky's snippy.

    God fordbid his moves get questioned when his team is in the mess that he's put it in.

    I like the Votto and Bruce answer "there's only room for 25 guys until September."

    Ok...Belhorn, gone....Votto up. Ellison down, Bruce..up. I'm a damn genius.

    Tell Hatte his role will be limited the rest of the season so they can get a look at Votto and Cantu (if they must..plus he doesn't have to play first, he can fill in for other guys if they need a rest). Tell Dunn and Junior their role's will be limited so they can give Bruce a look. Griffey sits 2-3days...same with Dunn...Bruce plays 5 days a week.

    Wow...that was tough.

    I agree with what you say except for sitting Griffey. He is on his way to 600 and it just wouldn't be right to sit a guy that is that close to a milestone. Let him play everyday until he reaches the mark, then he can sit if needed. I know it's a sentimental thing, but when it comes to milestones like that, you don't mess with a guy. Dunn is also potentially in a contract year, sitting him would be unfair to him if you aren't going to pick up his option. Same goes for Hatteburg. Even though I agree we need to see these younger players, it's harder to do than it would seem. Yeah, baseball is a business, but things like this have to be taken into consideration.

    Maybe Griffey sits twice a week (which may not be a bad thing for him)....I don't think Dunn sitting a bit more in the last month and a half is going to hurt him...team's know what he's done this season, and know what kind of player he is....or decide on that option NOW and tell him the situation. Quit toying around and start looking toward 2008....there's nothing left to play for in 2007. It'd be nice to go into the offseason having an idea of who you have, who is ready, and who is expendable.


    Hatteberg...you either pick up his option or you don't. If you bring Votto up to give him a look, and decide he's not ready, you pick up Hatteberg's option....if Votto comes up and you get enough of a look, and decide he's ready to go, then you can let Hatteberg walk, or pick up the option anyway and make him a resevere/bench player.

    I'd rather know (or at least have an idea) in Votto before deciding on Hatteberg one way or another. I would AT LEAST like to know that....if they want to wait on Bruce, I can understand that given their current outfield situation...and the fact that he is only 20. AT LEAST see what Votto can do if nothing else. They owe it to him, and the organization.

    I'd rather have guys who can get opposting batters out on a consistant basis.
