    Reds must be trying to set a record for getting picked off. Sigh. Guess Dusty didn't yell enough on Saturday.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Ah a pick-off of a Reds runner. I love the running game.

    I hate the top 2, but the choices are limited.

    I was listening to the Astros broadcast in my car. At this point in his life, Milo Hamilton may be the very worst baseball announcer I have ever heard.

    Pretty wide strikezone tonight.

    He didn't have a big lead and wouldn't have been picked off if he was paying attention.

    This!

    A big reason, despite his past slash lines, that I wanted him in the 2 hole... I hoped it would change his frame of mind and his approach would follow. Now if we can keep him awake on the bases!

    I think you have a better chance of being struck by lightning while holding the winning poweball ticket than of Phillips making a lasting change.

    I won't be surprised to see Phillips traded during the season to make way for Frazier and a bit of salary relief--no matter how the Reds are doing.

    I'd be in favor of it. He's about to become awfully expensive.

    His tradeability might be a stumbling block. That $12MM for next year (considering the club option buyout is a lock) is a question. He'd be more of a candidate in July 2011.

    I'm in the minority that thinks Frazier would be a downgrade. The primary problem with Phillips is that he's used as a main man when he's a 6 or 7 hole second banana. If he was used as he should be he would be a strength.

    Of course the money makes that difficult.
