    It was simply a lack of effort. He certainly doesn't look like someone trying to make a favourable impression.

    And I think he's played LF in the minors previosly. But I could be wrong on that.

    All-World closer Hanrahan had a tough series. In all three games, he pitched a total of 3 innings, allowing 5 hits and 5 runs, walked two. Reds outscored the Bucs 19-17.

    Or maybe we just think that because we didn't use to have 4 angles in HD of replays to watch?

    I'm pretty sure they just aren't as good. They can't blame multiple angles for their inability to call the strike zone.

    IIRC, Phillips is now 23 out of 27 in scoring a runner from 3rd with less than 2 outs.

    That is beyond excellent.

    Dusty did say he needed to work on other things when they sent him down. Might of sounded like double talk but if his effort or play in LF looks off, maybe that is what they were talking about.

    He has played LF in the minors.

    I think they're tons better at calling balls and strikes. I'd love to see that strikes zone graphic used for an Eric Gregg called game

    Have you ever watched C B Bucknor or Angel Hernandez call balls and strikes? If not. It's embarrassing.

    Not to mention Joe West gets worse every year.
