    which is faint praise. The team DER is still very low, better to focus on guys who allow fewer balls in play.

    Silva's a product of the Metrodump and not much more. If you're serious about Carlos Silva, then you better want to know what he does on the road, and you'll also want to know how the Metrodump's run index (park factor) compares to GABP's run index.

    It ain't pretty.

    Metrodump Silva: 3.88 ERA, 4.22 DIPS ERA, .746 OPS against
    Away Silva: 4.93 ERA, 4.71 DIPS ERA, .849 OPS against

    The Metrodump's park factor since 2005 is 0.95 whereas Great American's park factor since 2005 is 1.13.

    I don't even want to imagine what's likely to happen to Carlos Silva if he pitched half his games in Great American, especially with that lackluster strikeout rate and our below average defense mixed in.

    I've got a question about this and there is no delicate way to put it.

    In the official release first quoted in the thread it says that the REDS would comply with MLB's minority policy and be interviewing such candidates - is Dusty Baker a minority candidate for the REDS to interview just to comply with MLB's policy?

    That's what we're all hoping...but I think it's more than that.

    I think it's going to be a history making move...

    This may not be over yet...

    No news

    The Reds did not name Dusty Baker -- or Dusty Rhodes for that matter -- as manager Friday. Baker's apparently on his way to Bristol to some studio work for ESPN this weekend.

    The fact the Reds haven't made a move on the manager could mean they're going to see what shakes out with Joe Torre and Tony LaRussa. Either would be a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    Some of the people I talked to think there could be an unknown candidate. Possible. But I'd be shocked if the Reds would hire someone without a long big league resume -- unless that person is Pete Mackanin.

    I assume by "history making" you're referring to the largest number of internet nerds in history to jump off the Roebling Bridge at once?

    Ok...2 historical moments.


    If Dusty's the guy...he'd be the first African American manager in franchise history

    I think Baker just might be a crazy enough solution to work; you treat cancer with radiation; and bipolar disorder with lithium.

    He just might be the right shock to the system to deliver the Reds from this torpor.

    I'll give a cyber-nickel if you can tell me the name of Dusty Rhodes's girlfriend from his WWF stint back in the eighties.

    I've fairly well recovered from my addiction to wrestling, but I still do remember that it was Sapphire.
