    When Janish steps to the plate, I just look at it like he's a pitcher so I don't expect anything.

    We just have two pitchers in the lineup. One bats 2nd. Sweet.

    Fix LF. Now.
    The time to really address LF was in the offseason. It was painfully obvious that LF was the area that needed significant upgrade if the Reds were serious about trying to take the next step.

    Walt, of course, did nothing. In fact, he seemed to relish any opportunity to flat-out deny that they were involved in any trade discussions. It was disheartening, to say the least. It's May now and it's nothing short of maddening watching this team's predictable failures.

    First one I could find (after looking up 4 people) was Alex Gonzalez in 2000.

    By the way, coming into the game Janish had a .265 OBP (and dropping like Jonny Gomes BA every night).

    Wow.

    A 3.5 is too high to be real this far into the season?

    Had to step away for a few minutes? Have the Phillies scored again yet?

    I am much more worried about SS than LF. The Reds have a lot of guys who could come up and play LF right now (Heisey, Alonso, Frazier, Sappelt when he's healthy). The Reds have precisely nothing at SS.

    Yep, and I feel better about all of those options in LF than I do Fred Lewis and Jonny Gomes.

    As do I. All 4 of them, in fact.

    The Reds are waisting their time with what they're doing in LF. Eventually the figure it out and we will all ask what took them so long.

    SS is something that will be addressed via trade. Hopefully Walt can get the big fish.
