    I'm not sure that I trust Walt Jocketty or anyone with this ship right now. It's obvious that anyone working under Castellini is under major pressure and needs to make drastic moves. Drastic usually doesn't work in April.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    There you go jojo, being serious again. That just doesn't fit in with the Redzone culture.

    I don't know anything about Gregg Doyel other than occasionally hearing him on the radio but this short editorial smacks of loser.
    I'd be embarrassed to sign my name to it. He sounds like the sarcastic "loser" who isn't invited to the "cool" kids' parties.

    Good one. Things are never boring with the Reds, oh, except for that losing problem.

    Interesting proposition.

    Yes, I would.

    As for the Dunn/Bailey for Kemp scenario, I'd do that too if I had determined that I couldn't re-sign Dunn

    You know, that's the whole punch line. Maybe Wayne was to methodic for Bob. Moved too slow, held too much in, didn't seek advice enough. Wayne just hoped it all would pan out, kind of like 'the trade'. If you just sit and mummble to yourself in the corner, it will fix itself. Wayne got gun shy and was scared of finding another Majewski before he found another Phillips.

    I also expect Walt has orders to 'fix it' fast.

    Worries me most that Cast's win-now attitude, while admirable in a way, actually shows no knowledge of baseball and particularly of this team, which is not yet near being a contender. I expect bad, short-horizon moves to follow.

    Not aimed at me, but I'd take Kemp without even blinking. 3 years younger. Better defender. No health concerns. Easy call.
    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.

    I don't think I have ever agreed with Gregg Doyel.

    He is a bad writer and a twit. I'm not surprised he's Daugherty's bestest buddy.

    Nope. I was 100% for the Hamilton/Volquez trade and still am.

    I think Hamilton is a ticking timebomb. One that may never go off, but the thought that it could is serious enough to make me happy he's raking in Texas.

    Volquez is a dynamite pitcher. Bailey could end up being better with just a little more seasoning. He is still very young.

    Lucky that you never had to hear him on Homer before he was let go there.

    Absolutely the most negative man I have ever heard on a radio. He hated everything. I am quickly becoming a grumpy old man, but this guy was light years ahead of me. And he's still a young guy.

    Kid must be the best ever?! Better defender? I obviously haven't seen much of Kemp but he would have to be pretty special out there to be better than Hamilton. Unless you are using only Hamilton's limited time out in CF last year after all that time off, I don't see it.

    Not to say I would or wouldn't do that deal but I have a hard time buying that one RMR.

    Double negative. What do you really mean?
