    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Willy: You do every thing first class except between the lines!
    BC: We will win this year. We will have a winning record this year.

    So, is he going to claim that was taken out of context as well?

    That discussion was completely laughable. It was Bob spinning his wheels and trying to undo what he did yesterday combined with Bob rambling on about how much he loves this year's team and how this year's team is going to win.

    Oh well, WLW does have some nice one liner sound clips from Bob that I'm sure they'll play. When they're 15 games under .500 in late July and trying to sell players for cash, I'm sure we'll start hearing the "We're going to win. We're going to contend" sound bites again.

    The unasked question is: "Why in the world should we believe your assessment of the quality of the team when you've been nothing but wrong thus far?"
    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.

    Willy doesn't let things like that slip into the ether. That will come back to haunt BC.

    I am trying to believe that statement above by Castellini in light of his statement yesterday:

    By John Fay January 22, 2009

    Bob Castellini, the Reds chief executive officer, said for the first time this morning that the struggling economy is affecting the Reds' budget, and suggested that fans should not expect any major additions to the club at this point.

    General manager Walt Jocketty reiterated the message and said the club is already close to budget as far as the payroll goes.
    So, which is it, Bob?? If "sponsorships are up" and the players payroll stays the same, doesn't that mean more $ is going into your pocket?

    If sponsorships are up, doesn't it follow that payroll should also be up, and that the economy is not affecting the business?

    Anyone else getting a mixed message here?

    If sponsorships are up then your own economy should be up. But they said they aren't spending more because of the economy is bad. Geeesh make up your mind! He is fast turning into nothing but a big windbag that may turn into a complete caricature before all is said and done.

    Why would a business owner do anything but praise his product?

    Perhaps they have a few more low-dollar sponsorships. The actualy # of sponsorships could be higher, but at a lower average price, meaning less actual money coming in. If you take him literally, that migt be one way. (Or it might just be more spin.)

    Let's not forget dude ... let's not forget ... that Bob also said season ticket sales are right about where they were last year!

    Sponsorships up + season ticket sales maintained = the economy's killing the Reds!

    Or so says Bob.
