    He might be the worst reliever on the Reds. But he'd be a back of the bullpen guy for a lot of teams.

    Brutus, the Phillies are currently setup awful for the future and have spent a bazillion dollars on a team that has numerous flaws and is out of the playoff hunt. I really dont care how they evaluate Ondrusek.

    Even if Marshall was not available (apparently he was), there were still 3 better options in the pen. O is just awful against lefties. He should not be used in a crucial situation against them. Against righties, its at least maybe defensible. Dusty has used O like a steady high leverage reliever. He's not. Dusty is brutally wrong on this one.

    I understand that. But even still, the lead run scoring was not Ondrusek's fault. It was Ludwick/Cozart's fault and I don't see many people acknowledging that.

    Why wouldn't you have Heisey bunt? I really don't get it. You still have the better team, you win in extras most likely.

    Heisey just missed a hanger.

    It's not Logan's fault? Really? It's really hard to take some posters on here seriously when their judgement is so clouded by their hate for Dusty...
