    Re: I was wrong about....

    I thought Chris Heisey was better than Ryan Ludwick. I was wrong.
    I was also convinced Jay Bruce would end up playing CF after the deadline. Wrong again.

    I slammed the Reds bench earlier in the year and they've proved me wrong. They've weathered losing guys like Stubbs, Votto, and Phillips and haven't missed a beat. Guys like Ludwick, Frazier and most recently Xavier Paul have made significant contributions. Kudos to them...

    I was wrong about the future value of an Austin Kearns rookie card.

    After blowing up AAA, Alan Knicely was going to have comparisons to Bench. Fail.

    Re: I was wrong about....

    I've been wrong all my life. Here's some examples:

    1. I was wrong about Dusty Baker. He somehow just wins
    2. I was wrong about Zach Cozart. He has a lot to learn
    3. I was wrong about Jay Bruce. He is human
    4. I was wrong about Mike Leake. He still has a long way to go.
    5. I was wrong about not trusting Chappy on consecutive days. Like tonight.

    I'm just wrong...

    I didn't realize Patrick Swayze contributed to the sound track of Dirty Dancing. I realized tonight that I was so very, very wrong. Sorry PZ, all these years I wasn't giving your your due.

    To be fair, I think it was injuries that derailed Claussen, not lack of talent.

    Re: I was wrong about....

    I was wrong about Chris Heisey. I thought he would have a monster year and be the starting LF. I also was wrong about Miguel Cairo. I figured he'd still be the super sub he has been for the last 2 years. And finally I was wrong about Mes(at least so far) I thought hed win the ROY in a landslide and hit 25 HR for us. Hes still got time but I dont think he can achieve the numbers I was expecting.

    I thought adding Ken Griffey, Jr. to a young Reds team that finished one game short of the playoffs was a foolproof plan for success.

    I thought we'd never be able to sign Votto, Bruce, AND Phillips to long-term contracts at the same time.

    I thought Men At Work would have a longer career than Flock of Seaguls... I think I was wrong about that, although, it's kinda hard to know for sure.

    I thought I was wrong once, but it turned out I was just in Canada.

    Re: I was wrong about....

    I was wrong about Ludwick. Gotta give the guy props. Seems like he's having a career type season. I hope it continues when Joey gets back. Rolen was 0-2 last night with 2 walks, but has been hitting over .300 since the AS Break. I would love to see the offense start clicking on all cylinders from top to bottom heading into September and postseason. And love to see our pitching continue to be good.

    Crossing my fingers that it's all coming together.

    Props to Ludwick.

    I think I may have bought into the "building a winner for the new ballpark opening in '03" hype. That turned out well.
