    I tend to believe a lot of them have the rocks you speak of.

    Indians refuse to roll over.

    Great game.

    I don't believe Julio Lugo will be a Red Sox after 2007 at this rate.

    It is. But believe me, I do know what it's like to not have one, too.

    you're right. I am continually amazed at those that say the Reds don't need one. It wouldn't be my first priority but in the top 3.

    Not really, but he keeps being overpaid year after year. Any chance the Reds can get Mike Lowell. That guy is a horse. I would love to see him at 3rd for the 2008 Reds.

    No, I was joking. He always seems to get so close on all these teams he's been on... and has never won. The 90's Indians, on SF vs the Angels, the Cubs in 03.

    He was pretty much a toss-in in the Hanley Ramirez/Josh Beckett deal.

    But honestly.. where would he play? Dusty is set to have his "Infield Guy" prep Encarnacion to be a Gold Glover.

    Put Edwin at first and trade Votto or play Lowell at 1st.

    Why? Edwin isn't a 1st baseman. He simply isn't. The Reds need Lowell about as much as another outfielder.
