    Dusty: "We're close"

    The full quote is actually:

    "We're close, real close, to getting it together for a long period of time. I just feel it."

    Do the Reds have a sports psychologist? If not, they need one!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Re: Dusty: "We're close"

    the 2010 Reds are a TOR starter & a SS away from being a good team.
    a couple TOR starters are free agents this offseason.
    a SS should be available via trade.

    Optomistic view of 2010 includes...
    Hopefully a full season of an improved Bruce > 2009 Bruce.
    Dickerson/Heisey/Stubbs > Taveras
    Rolen > Rosales/EE
    2010 Bailey > 2009 Bailey
    .

    He might have said this while everyone was in his office watching Big Brother or something. I bet it didn't smell too good, and that it all seemed "close" in there.

    We're close to what?
    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

    We're close to completely alienating fans?

    "We're close to discovering Cold Fusion."

    That would be useful.

    Re: Dusty: "We're close"

    Here's the rest of the article by the way.

    Scott Rolen was held out of the Reds' lineup on Monday after being hit in the head with a pitch the day before. Dusty Baker said Rolen did not have a concussion, only a headache.

    Rolen was not available to pinch-hit in the ninth inning last night, when Willy Taveras came to the plate as the winning run. Drew Sutton was also on the bench, but Baker said, "I'm not sending the kid up there in that situation."

    That is the most ignorant thing I have heard in a long time.

    Did Baker think Taveras was going to send one into the bleachers?

    The only way young players can get used to pressure situations is to participate in them. Besides, it's not like the team is battling for first place. This is the time of the year when you can see if Sutton (and others) will be able to contribute in the future.

    Taveras was back in the lineup after missing the past five games with a sore wrist.

    "We've been struggling, so I hope to use my speed and help this team win," he said.

    Someone should tell him you can't steal first.

    The quote of the night came from Baker, "We're close, real close, to getting it together for a long period of time. I just feel it."

    Does he think the fans are complete idiots? The team has lost 19 of their last 23 games.

    The Reds are 45-60. They have won just 19 of their last 59 games. They must win 18 of their remaining 57 games to avoid losing 100.

    That's a lot of math.
