    So you are saying I am wrong saying shock radio or are you trying to say I am right?

    I guess that clears it up. He does do this stuff to provide an opinion that is controversial. I guess some people listen to his show. I though, am not one of them.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Relax. I provided the definition for you and others. Therein lies your answer. If you're still wondering Muggerd, it was. And yes, I'm sure all of the Redszoners here knew that. We have an intelligent base of Reds fans here!

    When Burbank has retired, the only time my radio will be tuned to 700 is for Reds coverage.
    I understand what you're saying, I was just merely saying that I can't listen to him too long because I feel a lot of it is nonsense that goes on and on and it just drives me nuts. I don't really appreciate that kind of radio so I don't listen to it often. I guess I wish it was more of an intelligent discussion between the personality and caller instead of sarcasm and narcisism on the part of the host.

    Also, regarding Cunningham, I will say I've not really listened to him. I'm not from the Cincinnati area, so the only time I really listen to WLW is during Reds games and sometimes after.

    Furthermore I do understand that my comments are not directly related to the original content of the thread, but I felt my sentiments somewhat echoed those of the quote I responded to.

    While most of his comments were quite "shocking" I agree with his statements on Arroyo, and no he doesn't give 110% everytime. He complains that he doesn't pitch well in day games because he "doesn't sleep very well". That is hilarious maybe it has to do with the fact that he is on main street in covington every night until the bars close, and who knows where after. If you are getting paid that much money to pitch every 5th day and it so happens to fall on a day game. DONT GO TO THE BARS ALL NIGHT. I make very little money and am not in the spotlight whatsoever, but I still take my crappy jobs seriously. Give me a break Bronson gives 110%, he is to busy trying to be a rockstar rather than a good pitcher.

    Re: Cunningham has no class: Griffey a "disgrace", Dunn "Drunk, a Monkey, and Black"

    I'm not sure what was so shocking...

    Arroyo doesn't give 100 percent in all games. How many poor pitching performances were a result of just being hungover? We will never know, but that brings me to another thing Cunningham said:

    Dunn being drunk. OK he is obviously not drunk, but it is like when you see the car ahead of you swerving all over the road or driving like 10mph on the highway, you think to yourself, "I hope you're drunk, otherwise you have no excuse."

    Cunningham exaggerates, yes. It is shock radio. But the points he exaggerates are legitimate ones.

    And nobody in their right minds think that Griffey and Dunn have been part of the problem this past million years with the Reds. But they aren't really part of the solution either. They are just there. Somedays I wonder if they are taking bong hits in the clubhouse before ABs.
    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."

    Re: Cunningham has no class: Griffey a "disgrace", Dunn "Drunk, a Monkey, and Black"

    By Bronson giving 110%, I meant that this is a guy who stayed in many games WAY to long, who gave you over 240 innings last year, will give you another 200+ this year. Bronson is good for nearly 7 innings and 100+ pitches per start.

    Yeah, you can say that is what he is paid to do. You can say this is his job. However, he is a reliable pitcher who had gone less than 80 pitches only twice this entire season. In this day of pitch counts and limits, Arroyo has given solid performances for the last 2 seasons. Letting him out of a game after 80 pitches isnt THAT big of a deal.

    Now if it happens consistently, well that is another story.

    Just because he shows up we should all thank him? Thats a lindneresque attitude. I wish my job only depended on me showing up and staying for the duration with no regards to my performance.

    Don't we all? Sadly there aren't many, if any of those jobs out there.

    Oh but they have had plenty of effect on our pitching.
    What percent of the payroll do they eat up again?
    Huh? Huh-uh. Oh yeah, uh-huh.

    Yep, there will always people listening for the resulting fireworks. And that is Willie's schtick. He wants to bring out the crazies,------pro and con, ----knowing full well a lot of people can't resist observing the nasty fight, that will result from his outrageous commentaries. I bet he's playing with himself when people start calling in to respond!
