    No, but he seems to be struggling at the dish for some reason. Must be the lineup or the way they're pitching him.

    82 OPS+. Not really close to league average.

    Cards up 9-1 in the 3rd. Would be nice to have a game or 5 like that.

    He was hitting .289/.439/.500 coming into tonight. In what world is that struggling?

    I just don't see the Reds suddenly becoming a better team, offensively or defensively, by getting rid of Rolen at the moment. Not saying they shouldn't pursue a quality 3B, but giving the job to Miguel Cairo or whoever doesn't seem like a much of an upgrade.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    OPS an entire 8 points lower than it was last year.

    Hoover or Simon in the 9th?

    I want to see Hoover. No interest in Simon
    I thought league average bullpen arms looked better than this

    When Soriano is making good defensive plays in left you know it's not your night. This ND receiver is still throwing mid 90s! A good few games for him, but the Reds are definitely helping him out!

    Reds get a break as they are bringing in a reliever.
