Ok...the season is over and obviously it did not end up the way we would have liked (although it ended up the way some anticipated).
Looking back with our near perfect 20-20 hindsight, what were the highlights and lowlights of this past year?
Phillips; Nuff said
Hamilton; * (the * for durability issues, otherwise a highlight)
Burton; showing signs of being solid
Couter; while not solid, showing signs of being usefull
Belisle; not a world beater but lasted longer than I thought he would
Dunn; turned in another great year
Harrang; 2006 wasn't a fluke
Keppinger; an actual improvement for the bench
Votto; way too early, but he showed what he might be able to do
EE; slow, miserable start...but turned it on big time at the end
Coffey; just plain horrable
Jr; I NOT SLAGGING ON HIM, but his RF defense was still an issue and while he had an awesome year at the plate it was a shame to see him come up short of 600. I was also bummed that he didn't make it to the end of the year without being hurt...it was so close. I'm frustrated FOR him, not AT him
Stanton; not that it was a total shock, but wow.
Sarrlooss; I was shocked, but wow
8th inning of about any game......
Gonzos defense; but I'm willing to cut him some slack vis. his child
Ross; I figured he'd slow down compared to 2006, but yikes
Homer; sorry to fire up the debate, but I think bringing him up was a huge mistake
Castro; Nuff Said
Freel; Nuff Said
