    And I've given you props for repeatedly acknowledging it.

    But Valdez over Cozart (and in the 2-hole no less), and Cairo over Frazier (for whatever reason) were obviously likely to kill the offense today, against a good starter.

    Lineup construction matters.

    I thought Cozart and Frazier were sick. They had to have iv's after yesterdays game.

    You need to have a bench that can give you something. Spot starts to give guys the day off, big pinch hits, bunts...whatever. We have a bench full of guys who we want to avoid at all costs.

    I don't follow our minor league system much, but if this is the best we can do games like today are gonna be ugly.

    I was at the Votto 3 HR game versus the Nats and in the first 6 innings Bryce Harper made a feet first sliding catch and a head first diving catch. I've not seen Stubbs do both in his 400 game career. How is that possible? Seriously?

    It looked bad early in the year but picking up Simon has been great.

    I agree. There is too much redundancy on the bench.

    Well, at least Simon is looking good out there. He makes Coco look like a mop up guy.

    For being a GManagerial Genius, it seems that Walter has been slightly off his game for the past 5-6 years.

    We should sign that Pirates ball girl to play some late inning d at 3rd.

I've put as much analysis into my posts than anyone at REDSZONE. So, quit your whining about other people's posts and try to contribute something positive about baseball or the REDS. Pointing out Dusty's faults is contributing something positive as it's pointing out ways where the team can become better....and that's what baseball fans do...you talk about the game, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Dusty Baker, while occasionally being the good, is usually the bad or the ugly.
    Love how you try to say that people don't bother to look at the other point of view but then end your rant with the same Dusty sucks dig at the very end. Way to see that other point of view.
