    Ahhhh, I don't know.

    With the Reds' success this year, the national press is viewing it as another success by Walt Jocketty. With that comes a little leeway for making moves and having them viewed positively. Or at least not viewed as another bozo move by Bowden.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Re: Reds Looking at Isringhausen

    I'm younger than Springer and Isringhausen. My fastball is mediocre, but I've got a pretty good curveball, and I've mastered the knuckleball, which I've been throwing for 17 years. I'm not really doing anything right now, so Walt, give me a call.
    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!

    Surely, this must be about a coaching job.

    Sounds like the Reds are right up against it in the budget department.

    No doubt. Adding Johnny Damon? Nope.

    This is the squad they'll either live or die with.

    WJ is doing a pretty good job of generating bullpen options for the stretch run. If he can still pitch, one thing Isringhausen brings is closing experience. IMO, the Reds will need more than Cordero in September. They may be reluctant to use Masset, Ondrusek, or Smith in that role in high pressure games.

    money is their as they are no doubt seeing the type of crowds they saw in 2003 when the park opened. i just hate to say that there is nothing out there that makes a whole lot of sense.

    Notice that after the deal was made, none of the reporters claimed the Reds were in it till the end? Also, no names were reported coming from the Reds.

    Really? The way it's going they will be fortunate to draw 2 million when in 2003 they drew 2.3 million. They have already played the bulk (49) of their home games.
