    Fay insider: Bray's shoulder is "sore"

    Awesome. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this will be a lingering issue.

    My theory on Blanton

    Here's my theory on what the Reds are thinking about with Joe Blanton: They want to get a look at Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez and Matt Maloney before they decide whether to pull the trigger on a trade. Remember, Dusty Baker and Walt Jocketty haven't seen any of these guys throw.

    If Baker and Jocketty like what they see, the Reds may decide they don't need Blanton. Or vice versa.

    "Baker said the Reds are still looking, but that's the case around baseball.

    "Everybody I know is looking for one," he said. "Maybe except Boston. But they might be looking for one with (Curt) Schilling hurt."

    But there becomes a time when you go with what you've got.

    "There some late (free agents to sign) out there," Baker said. "But you've got to move forward with who you have here. You don't want the guys here thinking: They're looking at somebody else. Are they dissatisfied with me? You've got get rid of that notion."

    One early note:

    --Left-hander Bill Bray is being held back because of a sore shoulder. He doesn't think it's serious. He over-correct in his rehab. "Now, I have to correct that," he said. "We're working out what I have to do." He is throwing but not off the mound.

    Cueto, Bailey and Volquez throw today. I'll report back with what I see. my guess is I could hit any of them.

    Did the Reds receive any healthy players from Bowden in "The Trade"?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    I think Brendan Harris was healthy...
    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.

    wasn't health the main concern though (rehabbing from Tommy J or something)?

    I think he had shoulder problems prior to the trade.

    OK guys it was joking rhetoric! :
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Hopefully it's nothing too serious. A healthy Bray gives the Reds another good arm out of the bullpen.

    Paging Mr. Fragile as Procelean. Please pick up the white courtesy phone located next to the 250 year old tattered parchament arm.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
