    DP is okay, but he tends to meander a bit for my liking.

    Probably the best sports talk radio I have found is the NFL programming on SiriusXM.

    I'll grant you that "toxic" is an oversimplification of the pundit perception. "Toxic" would be everyone walking on eggshells for fear of setting off a temper tantrum and we've never heard of anything like that. "Toxic to winning" is more like it.

    "Languid" and "uninspired" are closer to the mark, but they may not be in the vocabulary of most radio guys.

    Dunn and Griffey must have heard this and put some kind of spell on the Reds tonight.

    Really?

    That's why you agree. Hilarious.

    Seattle was solid with Griffey for several years. Dunn was on a pretty decent team with Arizona and he helped them.

    So he goes to the worst team in baseball (Washington) and he's the reason they suck?

    Great logic.

    I'm mixed on this whole issue. I'm not a stats expert like some of the others on this board, but isn't it ironic that as soon as both Junior and Dunn are gone that the very next season the Reds win the NL Central?

    Except they didn't, both left in 08.

    The problem was pitching, anyone still blaming Dunn and JR for the lost decade simply has a big ax to grind with no logic or meaning.

    I thought Junior was traded mid-season 2009. I know that Dunn was traded in 2008.

    Nope, you're correct. Mid-season 2008. My bad. I still stand by my original comment though, just off on my timeline.

    Looks like that spell lasted the whole series.

    The media loves scapegoats and whipping boys. I find it disingenuous to go back and blame two people for a whole decade of futility.

    Which is interesting again, because our biggest division rival could easily have the argument that their season was ended due to a lack of clubhouse chemistry... Look at the TlR vs. Rasmus battles... Carp dressing down his own players... Etc... That team tanked in a hurry when all of those issues started happening at the same time.

    The logic is more aimed at the approach those two took... They, but ability alone, should have been the team leaders... Only issue is, neither one of them showed much leadership... Griffey was always bitter, and was the type of guy that would languish out of position in CF because his pride got in the way... Dunn was the type of player that would rather watch a called strike 3 than swing in a clutch situation and 2 outs...

    To keep from getting banished from RedsZone all I'm gonna say is I strongly disagree with this post.
