Dominate: VT. the act of Sheets throwing a complete game under 100 pitches to the Reds.

we've won 3 of the 5 series we have played them this year FCB. ;)

But if we loose today, we lose the season match-up. winning 2 of three and losing 3 of 4 are not equal.

If the Reds had to play the Brewers to determine their fate for the rest o fthe season, they'd, uh, lose.


Series is tied at 9.


So the Brewers are dominating us but the series is currently tied? And your assumption is that if we played them the rest of the year we'd only loose? Is this another example of your definition of "love" that you gave earlier?

BTW, are the Brewers dominating us like the way the Cubs are dominating the Cards? I seem to remember you've said the Cards are a real solid team and a near lock for the division.

Well, I will say it's a bit condescending to claim that those who think Castro lacks range just "aren't watching." I get that some people are good at evaluating what they see. I think my experience having played most of my life in the infield gives me a good idea of what I'm seeing when I watch as well. And I watched a lot in person when Castro was with the team before, and on TV (which gives you limited feedback on range, IMO) and I just don't think the guy has very good range. And yes, I AM watching. I just come to a different conclusion. But don't tell me I'm not watching if I don't agree with you. A player lacking range who makes a nice play going to his right, might look like he's got good range when a rangier player might have made it look routine. You can tell lack of range by balls he DOESN'T get to. Aurilia at short last year had such bad range that it WAS obvious by even watching on TV. I can't count the times a ball was hit you'd think would be a fairly routine play get by Richie. That's why he hasn't been used there this year.

Does Castro's lack of range get exaggerated here? Of course it does. It's RedsZone. But that doesn't mean it's not a weakness of his. I truly believe his range is a liability, regardless if some folks think I must not be watching.

When he's healthy he's unbeatable. If he stays healthy for two months (and he's done that many times in his career), the Brewers just made the equivalent of acquiring an ace via trade. There won't be a team in the NL this year who can claim that. It should make the race very, very interesting.

Originally posted by RFS62: Some guy named Cal made a pretty good living with that theory.



Casto's range is not a lot worse than a lot of guys that I see playing shortstop on a daily basis for a lot of major league teams. The guy makes all the plays that he can get to, and there is certainly something to be said for that. I don't dispute that there are elite type shortstops that have the range and make the routine play, but I haven't seen that on the Reds since a "younger" Barry Larkin. (His range was not the best the last few years he played, either, but he made all the plays he could get to and an occasional brilliant one)With stats being what they are these days, most of the time you should be able to put your shortstop in a position where range is not as big a deal. Heck, Cal Ripken made a pretty good career out of it. I hear, range, range, range but sometimes, I don't think it is as relevant as some make it and just use it to hammer a player they don't hold in high esteem.

Great minds.....................;) :beerme:

My point is the Brewers are tied with the Reds and they've only gotten better as a team. The same can't be said of the Reds.

Many think the Reds are improved since the all star break, when we have gone from will card contender to wild card leader.

And the Brewers have gotten better because Sheets and Ohka are back.

If the Brewers had been healthy all season, they would likely be in first place.

Of course, if the Cards rotation had pitched like last year instead of imitating Eric Milton, they'd be 20 games in front.

I guess that's why they play the games.

Narron will leave him in.

Appropriately so, unless his spot comes up this inning. He's a workhorse folks, he just starts getting good after 100 pitches. I know we're not used to seeing starters able to go over 5 innings with pitch counts driven up because of the ability to strike people out. This is not Cory Lidle, Jimmy Haynes, or Paul Wilson. It's a bonafide front of the rotation horse. The kind we've been yearning for for years....and 'poof' here he is.

When and where did I say that?

It wasn't directed at me, but you said to someone who said that Castro lacks range that he must not be watching. Look, I'm not interested in going down this path further. I don't think his lack of range is a bad as some make it out to be, but I do believe it's a deficiency of his. Hell, I enjoy watching the guy play. He's fun to watch pick it when he's on the field. He's flashy and makes some nice plays. And I also agree that probability says that on any given day, it's not likely that more than one ball would be hit where his lack of range would prevent him from getting to it. But over the course of a season, or even a month, there will be balls that a SS with average range would get to that Catro wouldn't. I think it's a legitimate opinion. And I do think that range is important for middle of the field defense. And even with all the science behind positioning, there will still inveitably be plenty of balls in a season that a rangy SS will get to that a slow one won't. IMO, range is the biiggest difference between good and great shortstops.

Not as much as when Edwin is in the lineup.

RA is doing a great job and deserves to be in there and more important the Reds manager thinks so and it doesn't look like he's changing anytime soon! I know you don't like it, but it is what it is. Now if RA didn't do anything then I'd be on the bandwagon with you, but his hit against sheet in his 1st ab when no one can hit him shows why you need him in there, especially with a tough pitcher. RA shined last year in the 2nd half and it looks like he is doing it again. Sorry!

Disastrously bad deal that this is, the guy with upside in this trade--Cruz--went to Rangers. Maybe this works out if you really believe that Mench can hit outside of Texas, but there isn't a lot of supporting evidence for that, not when he's slugged .503 on his career at home, and .454 on the road.

Where this does work is financially, making this a throwback to... what, the hoary (ahem) days of Sal Bando?

so you think Harang has not shown that he is the real thing? He's a very good pitcher. No, he's not one of the 5 or 10 best in baseball, but he's close and very good.
Just so you know, before todays game, Harang had the 5th best DIPS ERA in baseball, behind Liriano, Webb, Bonderman and Santana.

I don't think people actually are aware of how well Harang has pitched this year He's had terrible BABIP luck all year, but that eventually normalizes.

And Webb, who is in 2nd place, is only .07 ahead of him. Only Liariano is ahead of him by much.

Here's the funny part. FCB, as Matt has pointed out, you are quick to call the Reds idiots, but serve as an apologist for opponents when they make questionable deals like Melvin just did. He got very little for Lee and I thought he should have traded him early in the season. Maybe he tried and he just could not get any leverage with anyone. But unless you just like bald headed outfielders, Mench is Joe Average OFer, Cabrero was sporting an ERA in the high 4s, and Laynce Nix is a meaningless throw in. It was a position filling deal to keep from getting totally hosed by Lee's unwillingness to sign. Meanwhile, the Super Genius will be using his ticket priveleges to watch other teams play in the playoffs while Texas makes a run for the AL West crown. Yup, they got unclothed.

He could have gotten young talent from other places, but he wants to create the illusion that the Brewers can still contend.

Thanks for the info. Didn't realize that.

In that case, he got the best deal he could get out of it, IMO. All I know is the Brewers are better than they were before the trade; and the Reds aren't.

Sounds like Krivsky II.

Except he will contend.

But that's not really the point. He's made his team better now and at least next year.

If the Reds had had the injury problems the Brewers have had this season, they'd well over 100 pitches in the run-deficit column.

Most people thought they'd be there even if they stayed healthy.

Many are overdue to give the GM, the Manager, and the Players some dap.

yeah, don't see it.

IMO, you just saying that b/c it was the Brewers and not the Reds

you'd say anything to denegrate the Reds at this point, it doesn't matter what is actually going on.

Don't think he made his team better for either year, but neither did Wayne. I'm not giddy over any of the guys that changed hands in the MIL/TEX trade. I can't say the same for the Reds deal.

Well, with as awful as this team is according to you, Sheets might have to go on the DL with a strained ego after giving up 2 whole runs to this team.

Whatever. Keep thinking it if you want. Whatever makes you feel better.

I was with Krivsky up until his debacle on July 13. But I'm not going to be stupidly and blindly supportive of a guy who just blew a hole in the hull of his own ship.

Hence why I said "this season". I give Wayne all the credit for that deal, though I wasn't a fan of it.
