    From the Sun Deck: Let's play Good Idea/ Bad Idea

    I'll start-

    Telling OC to hit the road- Good idea
    Keeping Chapmania in the 'pen when we have so many starters, and he's looked pretty sharp as a set-up man- Good idea

    320
    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    This reminds me of the skit from the Steven Speilberg cartoon Animaniacs. Good Idea / Bad Idea. Funny stuff.

    Good Idea...signing Joey Votto to a long term contract
    Bad Idea...putting a contract out on Joey Votto

    Good Idea...turning Chapman back into a starter
    Bad Idea...turning Gomes back into a starter

    Good Idea...fixing Frazier to a set position
    Bad Idea...fixing Frazier to a fetal position

    Good Idea...running Bruce out there everyday
    Bad Idea...running ON Bruce out there ANY day.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I suppose. I just see a bigger future hole in the back half of the pen than in the rotation, and Chappy's now the only possible starter with any experience there.

    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.

    Good Idea - Reds going into 2011 with Greinke as the Ace
    Bad Idea - Reds going into 2011 with Arroyo as the Ace

    Good Idea - Moving Alonso in the Off-Season for a LF
    Bad Idea - Using Alonso as a LF

    Good Idea - Aquiring a closer in the Off-Season
    Bad Idea - Cordero the Closer in 2011
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...
