    There are plenty of guys without big names in baseball that could successfully skipper a team. I really think getting a guy like Baker would have more to do with branding than a commitment to winning.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Well, "commitment to winning" is a loose term. I do think Baker would come in demanding the team spend the money it takes to give him what he thinks he needs to win. That doesn't make him right. The Cubs gave him what he wanted and it turned to mush.

    So it might wind up being more fluff (marketing) than substance (wins), but I'm reasonably sure Baker, Krivsky and Castellini would formulate a plan that they thought would bring about immediate success. It's possible to have the commitment and not the results.

    Yes they are. Matt Morris was right behind Carlos on the groundball outs list. Do we want him too?

    To be fair, I wouldn't mind Silva as long as the money is right, which it probably won't be. I'd hate to see the Reds throw so much money at him that it prevented them from spending money elsewhere.

    You know, Matt Morris was another guy that came to mind as a potential target if Baker gets the gig.

    And, no, I wouldn't want him, but I figure the club wouldn't be after a lot of guys I would want.

    The Reds infield defense is better now than in past years.

    Do you think Baker would have that much control over player acquisitions? Would Wayne give him that much say?

    The Reds tied some franchise record or broke a franchise record for fewest errors soemthing or other this season.


    Odd, considering how much the defense was lacking...

    Odd.
    A team record, yes. They are still a bit range-challenged overall but they are making the routine plays more often now. They were still midde of the pack in team fielding percentage.

    Silva let up 38 HRs in 2005.

    Keep looking.
