    If you've been a Reds fan long enough, that's the way they have been for awhile now.
    It used to be in the 80's they could gaurantee a win from the likes of the the Braves. Now they are almost certain to beat the league leaders and get swept by the cellar teams.

    The 1999 series at Milwaukee to end the season comes to mind

    So what if we were 6.5 games out? Big deal. We may have been 6.5 games out but still doesn't change the fact that we're still a terrible team. Sure we could say we could make the playoffs but does anyone actually think we deserve to go much less win a series? I don't know why so many people get upset over this.

    They are what they are and thats a 76 win team nothing more nothing less. Actually making the playoffs this year would set the team back even further for next year, ownership might think that the team is actually good and not make any changes. The Reds have 2 good starters and rest of the rotation is terrible, how can a team win with Shearn, Rameriz, Dumatrait getting consistant starts?
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Amen.

    Every time I see The Magic Man coming in, I know its an automatic notch in the win column.

    And Coffey. So much potential. Maybe if he ran a little faster to the mound, that would push him over the edge, spilling onto greatness. Pay attention folks, you are watching a future HOFer. Wait a minute, if he really is a lock for the HOF... I wonder why he even bothers hustling then? That's KGJ 101.

    Stanton? Why I bet he could pitch ANOTHER 65 years easily. Watching him pitch...he makes it look so easy. Perfection should be so attainable.

    L.A. manager Grady Little had a bad feeling about Wednesday's game when he saw Harang and pitching coach Dick Pole walking in after Harang's warmup.

    "I saw two big men," Little said. "Either could have shut us out tonight."

    No.

    This is classic Reds:




    And this is Classic Reds:




    What we saw yesterday was the same nonsense we have all been sitting through for 10 years and counting. The "little red wagon" is right. I miss the Machine. Courage, Charisma, Talent, Amphetamines, ...well, 3 out of 4 were good. Oh yeah, and they won. A lot. I don't know what I have been watching for the past 10 years but after a while it all starts to look like 1982. Maybe Tom Hume really is the answer to our bullpen woes?

    The others deserve all that. Gary Majewski has been effective in August, and should continue to do well in September. I think he could be an effective reliever for the Reds next year.

    He continues to scare me when he comes in because he ,like coffey, seems to hittable.
    Burton last night impressed me after giving up a run, bouncing back like he did.

    Majik is a ground ball pitcher, like Coffey.

    See proof below:

    Majik in 2006 - 84 GO to 48 AO - 1.85 ratio (34 Ks)
    50% of his outs came via the ground ball
    Majik in 2007 - 29 Go to 17 AO - 1.88 ratio (7 Ks)
    55% of his outs came via the ground ball
    Coffey in 2006 - 104 GO to 66 AO - 1.71 ratio (60 Ks)
    45% of his outs came via the gound ball
    Coffey in 2007 - 66 GO to 32 AO - 2.38 ratio (36 Ks)
    49% of his outs came via the ground ball

    These are "pitch-to-contact" guys more than anything else. Dan-O would be proud. So, as I see it, the point is to be hittable. When it's hit at defenders, swell. When it's hit over the fence, not so good.

    or in the gap , or down the line, or off the wall, or oh well unless you have a Brandon Webb sinker, I am not a big fan of the pitch contact thing.
