Bauer was on radio and pissed that yesterday's game wasn't delayed until 10 minutes after the start time and after he had warmed up. Seems like Ron Gardenhire was up to shenanigans and didn't want to face Bauer....

i'm still impressed david bell had some kind of awakening after the fourth game of the season in regard to shogo. first four games, shogo only started two of them and didn't bat leadoff in any of them.

since then, shogo has been listed as the leadoff hitter every game, including two games that got postponed.

all snark aside, i would bet my life someone from the front office instructed bell to play shogo nearly every day and to bat him leadoff. i think reasonable minds would agree that bell's approach to shogo the first four games compared to his approach now is a drastic change, especially in such a short period of time. what suddenly changed so much for bell in the way he views shogo's role? it's pretty obvious, imo.

Being a non-engineer, I always wondered why you couldn't erect 4 giant posts around the stadium. Have a lightweight film attached to two of them with cables going to second set of posts. When rains comes you pull film over to second posts, at an angle so water rolls off.

I assume the problem would be getting a film that's tough enough and light enough.

As a structural engineer, I can tell you that there are numerous difficulties with this proposed design including strength of the film, size of the posts, size of the foundations to support the posts, and resistance to 115 mph wind loads per the Ohio Building Code. You would, in essence, be erecting a giant sail with huge lateral and uplift loads.

I went back and listened again and it’s hilarious. “For those of you who went to Reds.com and were quite curt...it’s way above our payscale and quite frankly it’s against the law.”

And Welsh quickly changed the subject.

I’m not an attorney but isn’t it most correct to say “legally, no one else is supposed to know” unless the player agrees to disclose?
