    The Bats are probably on the road that weekend so that's probably a safe bet.

    We're not winning
    That's probably all Bob needed to say.

    Are we failing to forget one Albert Puljos who Jocketty was responsible for? I don't see Bruce going anywhere other than Cincy in the near future and I also see Bailey in the starting 5 shortly.

    I'm not sad WK is gone, but I think the "we're not winning" excuse is pretty weak.

    I'm sure it's deeper than that and we'll never know.

    Jocketty may make his first roster move today. I think today was they day they were talking about bringing Ross up.

    Again, I just don't get it.
    My definition of win is a consistent team that notches at least 90 Ws on an annual basis, and not only is always at the top of the division, but has some success in the playoffs not only in their league, but the World Series. Winning a weak NL Central doesn't make us a winning ballclub.

    Our holes are far more gaping than most others in the division, IMO.

    The NL Central will most likely be a 2 horse race between the Cubs and the Brewers. If we play well, we'll be 3rd. Do I think we're a last place team in the NL Central? No, I don't, but at the same time we're far from "competing", and we're light years away from "winning".

    I share the sentiment echoed by others that "competing in the NL Central" is a completely different animal than being a "winning ballclub".

    His rehab assignment has ended. Unless they are going to release him it is time to bring him back.

    They can keep him on the DL indefinitely.

    With Arroyo going tonight, I would be surprised if Ross isn't back today.

    To base this decision on the results of the first three weeks of the season seems silly to me. The win now mentality clearly prevailed, but for Cast, it might have been more to the idea that the current record is one thing, the prospects of contending for a title anytime soon is another. Perhaps two more years of .500 type baseball isn't going to cut it in BC's mind.

    Hope we don't follow the Cardinals' path of picking up every drunk, druggie and low-life player out there.

    I would've been happy with consistent progress towards that.
    Wayne has made decisions which made last season horrible and this season's team doomed to sub-500. Some of his dumb decisions will haunt us next year as well (Like Freel and one more year of AGon).

    This team has not improved over Wayne's tenure. Wayne's bad moves have outweighed his good ones.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I think it was pretty clear that WK had no interest in signing Dunn to an extension. According to Dunn there hadn't been any conversation about an extension ... which says everything.

    It will be interesting to see if the orgainization has a change of heart and opens contract talks with Dunn.

    Doesn't Ross have to be brought back today?! It will be interesting to see who the new GM sends down in replacement....
