Listed weights really don't mean anything to me. Adam Dunn doesn't look overweight to me. He is a big guy.
he looks just like a Texas quarterback, doesn't he?
I mean, I look and I think, "Vince Young"
Off topic, for sure, but...
I miss those uniforms. What we have now look like ice cream suits. and the old style piping around the collar and down the buttons is so last year. No style for this club. I've decided it's the uniforms...
Blech. I almost wish they'd go back to the '80's... it's time for that look again, I think.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Try these numbers out for size:
Austin Kearns 2008- .221/.308/.317 with 6 homers and 30 RBI at $5 million.
Corey Patterson 2008- .197/.227/.348 with 9 homers and 21 RBI at $3 million.
Austin Kearns is not a good player. Period. If the Reds signed a player with Kearns' numbers at Kearns' salary from outside the organization there would be a 20 page thread calling for Walt Jocketty's head.
Awhile back I remember reading a number of posters saying they'd love to bring Austin back into the fold for 2009 even at the inflated salary he'll be due (can't remember what he's due to make next year). This is just foolishness. Yes, he can play a pretty good defensive outfield, but come on now.

I hate those uniforms of the 80's; always have... even in the 80's.
I like the sleeveless, vest-like jerseys and think they would allow the players more freedom, whether in the field or at the plate. In fact, that little thing Jay Bruce does before he bats is because he once caught his elbow in the sleeve. Now he always pushes it up to make sure it doesn't happen again. Not a problem if there are no sleeves.
