Seriously considering giving my lifetime obsession with the Reds up.
What are you, people? On dope? - Mr Hand
I'm too busy reveling in the UK FB team's win over #1 LSU to let another stupid, stupid move by this train wreck of a franchise get me down tonight. I'm sure tomorrow though, I will be one honked-off Reds fan. Blech!
Doc K is probably grinning from ear to ear right now, his business is about to double.
We bought him, now we have to live with him. Let's hope he learned something during his catastrophic tenure in Chicago.
Anybody that gives up on the Reds because of this wasn't needed in the first place. Maybe it indicates the club will open the coffers a little this winter. Just looking for the bright side....
But today, I started feeling better. I had my first real winning session for the month. I was really having a good day. My Ducks won HUGE at home...my Cowboys are undefeated. LSU lost...I was dozing off in my Lazyboy...I wake up...
And now I feel like someone has seriously punched me in the gut.
I'm not sure who would have been worse to root for: Larussa or Baker.
Those quotes are the epitome of the anti-Dunn. Not to mention guys like EdE, Votto, Bailey, and Cueto are seriously hamstrung now.
God, I'm physically ill and wanna cry. It's been a bad month and it just won't stop.
Just one question (okay, three)... why on earth would Castellini do this? I honestly can not comprehend why.
Why in the world were they so hell bent on a big name, even if he isn't all that great?
And why so quickly? It's only been two weeks since the season ended!
Stormy hit the nail on the head, several times. If fans can see all these things, I can't understand why ownership can not.
I'm unable to express how disappointed I am with this choice. I just have this horrible horrible feeling that it's a huge mistake.

This makes me want to torch my baseball card collection.
Seriously, Dusty was nowhere near my top pick. In fact, he was quite near the bottom - I would much rather have had Pete at the helm (and I do hope that Pete is given a job in the organization, but that is doubtful).
But, the deed is done. Like a goofy basset hound that was just spanked, I will still faithfully follow the Reds hoping for another doggy biscuit.
No pitching coach that I know of can claim a flawless record for health, but Mazzone's pitchers have typically been quite healthy. You can't point to a prolonged record of abuse by Mazzone pitchers.
