That's probably all Bob needed to say.We're not winning
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.
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".
With Arroyo going tonight, I would be surprised if Ross isn't back today.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

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 bringing winning baseball back to Cincy -- it was nice while it lasted..

It will be interesting to see if the orgainization has a change of heart and opens contract talks with Dunn.
What are you, people? On dope? - Mr Hand
Doesn't Ross have to be brought back today?! It will be interesting to see who the new GM sends down in replacement....
