    Keep him and see how we start out the season next year.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    The Reds had just signed a bunch of OF.
    Winker was penciled in as a part time or platoon guy.
    Of course Winker is going to change his approach to make Bell or the "powers that be" happy.
    A guy in Winker's situation is going to follow orders so that he gains playing time instead of losing it.
    Note: I am not blaming Winker at all, I would have done the same thing in his situation.
    So what I get from these two posts is that Bell pretends to agree with and implement the front office vision to get and keep his job while Winker pretends to agree with and implement Bell's vision to get and keep his job. Is it no wonder that this offense is a mess?

    The woman looked up, furrowed her brow, and said, "I don't think so. After all, you're the Reds manager, right? I'm pretty sure you don't even know what a run is."
    Classic my friend! LOL
