    Well done Lincoln!

    nuff said. I knew it. I think Dusty knew it too. If he had to go to Lincoln the game is over.

    I'm just wondering how he holds a roster spot?

    He should be released. Lincoln has been horrible all year. I can think of at least two other games he has contributed to losses. Pitiful.

    Well it's just that Dusty seems to know he can't go to Lincoln, he knew in a tight game like today he just couldn't bring him in unless forced. And he's not an innings eater. So why is he here?

    IMO you move owings to the pen and Maloney stays as the lefty of the rotation if Edison is okay. If not, I'd like to see Lincoln released and see if Roenicke can add another nice arm to the pen.

    Hopefully they just keep pounding him here so the front office will finally do something.

    Re: Well done Lincoln!

    I got an idea. Lets fight blood, sweat, tears, and nails for 14 innings with a depleted lineup and shortened roster. Lets battle for 5 hours and then send Lincoln out there to take a big poopy in the nice cake we spent all sunday afternoon baking.

    Oh wait, we did that.

    Only reason he's still on the squad is he somehow lucked his way to a 3.12 ERA in May. He's been the 25th man on this roster for too long, and there's too many good relievers sitting in Louisville that should have his spot.

    It's amazing he managed to give up the same amount of runs in 1 inning, that the rest of the team gave up in 13. Rosales also deserves a lot of credit for this loss as well though, leaving men on 3rd twice with 1 out.

    He almost did it last night too, if it weren't for a horrible throw from third to home.

    Anyone who missed today's game missed a little slice of baseball history as Mike "One Pitch" Lincoln took the mound for the last time in a Reds' uniform. Hopefully.

    Talk about some bad signings.

    Lincoln and Taveras should have never received 2 year deals. I could have dealt with 1 year ones but 2 just makes you wonder.

    We shoulda have just put Janish back on the mound. He probably at least throws a little harder.

    Yeah Lincoln stinks but my God what a comically inept, horrific offense.It's like everytime we have runners in scoring position late in the game we send up Leslie Nielsen.

    Re: Well done Lincoln!

    The 2 year contract he signed in Dec 2008 is keeping him on the team. Reds would have to eat the 2.5 million he is owed next year. Hopefully Jocketty gets the ok from Castellini to eat the money and Lincoln doesnt take the trip to D.C.

    Id like to see Manuel, Viola or Roenicke take his place.
