    Even if he wasn't coming back, he's the best of the 3 C on the roster right now. So, we're not winning now and we're not building for the future. I wonder what the plan is then.
    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.

    Part of a trade scenario? Otherwise doesn't make much sense
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Hanigan on his way up? Not sure why the Reds would want a Javy/Bako platoon going forward...

    Probably bcause the team likes the way he is working with the young pitchers, not every aspect of the game comes out of a honed piece of wood.

    Despite Redszones insistance that it does.

    You mean there's more to baseball than OPS+ and RC/27?

    Do tell.

    That's a point.
    I assume that you mean to work with just Volquez and Cueto. The rest aren't that young, so does Valentin and the rookie catcher work with the rest?

    I don't mind Bako over Ross. Bako has been working with the young guys, and his D is better than Ross, Hanigan is getting his chance. I like that. The purge of the junk is beginning. For crying out loud let Jocketty work things out. Patterson will be gone and so will a lot of other people before next season begins.
    Valentin will NOT be doing any catching - Hanigan will.

    I would expect Hanigan to get a lot of playing time, otherwise, why bring him up? Ross should have no problem finding a home.

    are you joking me??? Bako is horrible.. Ross is at least a serviceable back-up... Bako doesn't belong in AAA... Patterson the same... I do like Hanigan though...

    Pitching and defense is a priority over offense, though some on Redszone argue often and complain otherwise.
