    Jacoby has to go!!

    I think its time Brook Jacoby gets fired for this pathetic offense, inability to hit in the clutch, and taking too many called 3rd strikes. Time for another approach. Who can we get?

    He doesn't really get mentioned much by headhunters. But, I agree, he's not exactly setting the world on fire. Send him to the house.

    Maybe Chris Chambliss is available. Firing him was almost as dumb as hiring Dusty.

    i think it's about time the players take some blame instead of all the coaching staffs. are you seriously going to tell me with all the managers and coaches we've run through in the least 10 years, none of them were competent? the players suck and thats the bottom line, until the is changed the coaches hands are tied.

    Ive often wondered why a guy who could never teach himself to really hit big league pitching is teaching others....

    I think it is a move that needs to be made by Dusty to save his own butt. It is not that he is doing bad job, (even though the hitting has been bad) it is that this team needs to move into a positive direction. They need to go out and get the best possible hitting instructor available. Dusty also needs to hire Mario Soto as his bullpen coach so our pitchers can get better too. Just my opinion.

    Re: Jacoby has to go!!

    The problem as I see it is we have too many guys going to the plate with what looks like no particular plan of attack. These guys all got to the majors because they have talent. A hitting coach at this level is little more than a mind coach as I see it. And our guys look often like they have no clue when they step to the plate.

    Now either Jacoby doesn't know what he's doing or he does but can't communicate it to the players. Of course, that is kind of a critical element of coaching, communication.

    You are correct sir. Although I believe hiring Dusty was dumber.

    Throw him out on his head, along with Pole and Dusty. Expensive trash.

    Firing Chambliss was probably Krivsky's worst move as GM of the Reds. It made no sense, The Reds had the #1 ranked offense with Chambliss, but after one off year, Krivsky fired him for no reason. The players loved him, especially Dunn and Griffey, so that wasn't the reason, and Narron is too nice of a guy to have a coach fired, so I never understood why. Maybe he was a O'Brien hire, and Krivsky just wanted to have all his own men? Whatever the reason, it was a dumb move.

    Re: Jacoby has to go!!

    This offense is just painful to watch. Poor Daryl Thompson has forgotten what it's like to look on the scoreboard and see that his team has a run.

    1 run against Yanks on Sunday
    1 run against Jays on Tuesday
    1 run against Jays on Thursday
    0 runs so far against Tribe today

    Incredibly frustrating to watch.
