    Taveras: 5 AB's, 5 outs, 15 pitches

    Throw out everything else here, why we signed him, why he's playing every day, why he bats leadoff. I have one very simple fundamental question about Willy Taveras:

    Why DO YOU FREAKING SUCK SO BAD?!?!?!

    Seriously, what is the reason? Is he functionally retarded or something? How does he even last this long in the major leagues?!?! How do you suck THIS BAD and have anyone promote you, EVER. What does he bring to any team besides speed, which is worthless? Even counting the fact he HAS speed, imagine how bad of a hitter he would be if the few hits he does get that he runs out, if he DIDN'T have speed!

    Holy crap, how can someone SUCK THIS BAD?! HOW is this POSSIBLE??? Like on a technical level. Like Tom Emanski tape level, what is he doing that makes him suck. I really would like to know, because he is the WORST player in Major League Baseball. I rather have a donkey take a dump on home plate and that count as our first batter than him.

    WHY?? For God's sake WHYYYY????

    The OBP of Taveras and Gonzalez is beyond embarrassing. .275 and .246. Are you kidding me? How do you stay in the major leagues with numbers like that???

    Back in the day, that was Cedar Rapids, amigo.

    I wish everyone would just back off on Taveras. He said coming into the season that he was gong to steal 100 bases. He's got 21 now. That meas the guy is going to steal EIGHTY bases in the next two months. You don't think that's going to help the Reds win some games down the stretch?

    Amazing.

    THIS is your leadoff guy.

    Only on a Dusty Baker team.

    Only problem is, he doesn't have Barry Bonds and Hank Aaron batting 3rd and 4th...
    Those guys could win games when you give up 2 outs to start an inning.

    PEACE

    -BLEEDS
    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009

    But he'll get thrown out 50 times trying to do it!
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
