    You are dodging man.

    You asked if Bob had the stones to fire Walt due to the Latos deal, yet you won't answer when that should happen.

    Disagree. Perhaps that was the case early in his tenure, but he's been more than villified on here over the years for his inactivity at deadlines and inability to fill certain gaps in the lineup.

    Astros hitting .258, Reds .238. Reds run differential is -4 and Houston is +4. Which one looks like the AAA team?

    1-2-3 go the Reds.

    Latos is not the problem.

    Whatever dude. And you conveniently ignored my post about his April struggles and making his money from May through September.

    You're typical Redszone poster looking to argue. Too many of those 'round here.

    And that's my beef. I've been advocating since '10 we need a legit cleanup hitter and guy to protect Votto in the lineup, and Walt & Bob continue to ignore it. No wonder they've only won the division once and continue to fall way short of expectations.

    I know the book on Ludwick is that he's a poor defender, but from what I've seen he's been pretty good (sounded like he made a beaut there)
