Well, I'm fine with trading for Holliday. It's the home games the Reds can't win anyway.
Sadly, even with his current numbers, he could play LF and hit cleanup and be an improvement.
I'd be all for Holliday, I have no concerns about him doing just fine here in GABP and the NL. As RVH rightly pointed out he moved to not only a pitchers park but to a league where he must now get acclimated to the differences. We all know he has to learn new pitchers but more than that a new approach the AL has a more aggressive approach what with the DH and all.
"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
Maloney should get the first call up whenever that happens to be, though it may not be for at least another month, if no one gets injured. He earned it last year, and is earning it this year.
Maloney is a AAAA pitcher. If someone would bite on him + ? for a hitter I'd jump.
For the record, Roenicke isn't exactly putting up stellar numbers in Louisville. Maloney isn't exactly killing it either.
Matt is starting to hit homers again. Maybe ..like it was said...he needed to learn the pitchers a little more.
