    Lincoln heading to Louisville?

    If I'm the Reds, Mike Lincoln has a one way ticket to the Derby City.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    Lincoln can go home while Burton goes to AAA.

    Only hard hit ball was Soriano's.....everything else was weakly hit.

    Seriously...I think they will use that as an excuse not to cut him.

    He came in with an 8.10 ERA with the opponenets hitting .325 against him. That's more than just pitching in tough luck.

    Lincoln stinks, but today's loss wasn't his fault. It was the offense all the way. Lincoln needs to be released though.

    He played a role in it though.

    He's not going anywhere. Burton may go down for some work to get straightened out, but Lincoln stays on his 2 year deal.

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I had the exact same thought.

    You got to love the knee jerk "I hate _____" or "we should cut _____" threads that occur within seconds of a players mistake.

    Worst movie ending ever.

    Anyway, take a likely .500 team, take away the best pitcher and best hitter, the next best hitter in a fierce slump, and take away probably the fourth best hitter, and what kind of team do you have?

    O.J. Simpson played Cmdr. John Walker in that movie. All in all pretty good cast Elliott Gould, Hal Holbrook, Telly Savalas, and Sam Waterston.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Awesome reference. I saw it in the theater as a kid; I thought it was freaking awful even then.

    Even if it did have Nordberg.

    Re: Lincoln heading to Louisville?

    Right now, Lincoln is the 13th pitcher on a 13 man staff, that will go down to 12 soon. When that happens, and he still is getting hit hard, he probably is the odd man out.

    To be honest, with so many clubs needing middle relief, I think the Reds could easily trade him. If the Reds were to place him on waivers, I think more than one team would put a bid on him. I doubt they could get anything other than salary relief, but that's better than sending him to AAA or releasing him.
