We don't need Carew and Wiliams - just some roster balance. Even a Lance Nix type as a 4th OF and a better LH hitting utility infielder would do wonders for the roster.
No one thought Heisey + Stubbs would be this horrible. Two completely redundant parts that are just an OBP grease fire right now.
Did anyone watch Joe Madden use gas can tough guy who fought with Paul Wilson today vs the Yankees.
They had a chance to sweep and what's his name.......kept throwing breaking balls with a 2 run lead against Chavez....... but bottom line is that Madden for all his good......messed up in his bullpen choice and used a guy who had barely got the cobwebs off him in a big game.
Didn't we limp to the All Star break the last two years also?
Dusty on batting Stubbs 2nd every game: "Well, (chews on toothpick), well, uh, you see here, (curses Bartman under his breath), speed kills you know. Drew just uh, needs to, you know, not bat .210 and he'll be fine. Plus, and you guys don't know this because you never played with Hank Aaron, but speed kills. I should have mentioned that earlier. Plus, Drew is a former first-rounder. Act like you know!"
5 Ks in a row for Reds hitters.
