    You explained to me during the Rockies game thread that I had no patience.... now this. Plenty of people comment on how dead this team can look.

    Whoever wrote that Heisey, Cozart and Stubbs all look like the same hitters....flailing, guessing and then just quitting on their AB's sometimes and striking out meekly was dead on.
    I honestly don't spend much time in game threads. I guess when I do, I must see you attributing failure to guys not trying, too laid back, etc. and I respond to that fallacy. The Reds won 2 of 3 in that Rockies series. I went to a game where guys were just trotting around the bases. Lollygaggers.

    I was talking about the quality of AB's and what it seems like.... a lot of giving away of AB's. Just lazy to me.

    And you attribute that to the opponent because Dusty takes the also ran's lightly? I'd say it goes back to "every teams wins 1/3, every teams loses 1/3, its the other 1/3 that matter" dynamic. Plus, the Pirates can pitch. There are two teams competing, not just the Reds winning or losing based on whether they feel like trying hard or lollygagging against a "lesser" opponent.

    In short, I think your interpretation of this observation puts everything on the Reds effort level, while I think it is just watching two teams compete and sometimes the other guys come out on top.
