    So.......the plethera of issues we face

    1. What to do with Lecure?
    2. What to do with Bailey?
    3. Where is Volquez going to fit in?
    4. Should Chapman come up and pitch in the pen?
    5. When does Dusty begin to cut back on Leake's innings?
    6. Should the Reds make a run at Lee who will probably leave us high and dry at the seasons end?
    7. Votto is playing an excellent 1st base and you aren't going to move him...so what to do with Yonder?

    It is a great time to be a Reds fan

    Man, those are good problems to have.

    1.) I think Lecure would be good coming out of the pen, although he's a lot better than I thought he could be.
    2.) I think if he's healthy Bailey is your fifth starter. I think moving him to the pen might hurt his mindset. I just feel like he's fragile.
    3.) Anywhere.
    4.) Absolutely
    5.) That's a tough question. The kid is so good you don't want to mess with him too much, but you also don't want to kill him.
    6.) I don't think so. I think we are fine without him and don't want to give up what it would take to get him. Great, great pitcher, though.
    7.) Another great problem to have.

    Think he was referring to Cliff Lee since Seattle is shopping him pretty hard.

    Cliff.....if you look at what the Brewers done with Sabathia it would basically be the same type of situation.

    Yeah, maybe. It's hard telling unless this team is on the cusp of a Pennant.

    Yeah, but I wonder if waiting till the deadline is a mistake given the number of wins Cliff could get us in between then and now.

    7. Possibly see if he can be converted to a 3B. Rolen only has a couple good years left in him at most. Yonder might be a solid understudy.

    I would think so. I think he and Jocketty are tight now. Walt gambled and gave Rolen a "third" chance, and I think he'd stick with the Reds.

    I will punt you if you rub that bobble head in my face again.

    I'm waiting on someone to get hurt if they simply mess up Jonny's order at Skyline.

    This whole Jonny Gomes thing just seems meant to be. Remember how we wasn't even going to sign him, and then when we did it was figured he would get sent down and not make the roster. And now all of this........and they say the NBA is where amazing happens...pshh

    Here are the first round of Gomes Facts:




    When Jonny Gomes does a push-up, he isn’t pushing himself up, he is pushing the world down.


    When Jonny Gomes puts on Chris Sabo’s goggles, he can see the future.


    MLB is considering putting Jonny Gomes’ DNA on the list of banned substances.


    If you spell Gomes in Scrabble, you win. Forever.


    Jonny Gomes knows what Willis is talkin’ about.


    Jonny Gomes once took one of Dusty Baker’s toothpicks to the plate instead of a bat. He was intentionally walked.


    Superman wears Jonny Gomes pajamas to bed.


    Before the Boogeyman goes to sleep, he checks under the bed for Jonny Gomes.


    Jonny Gomes can touch MC Hammer.


    For Jonny Gomes, the outfield warning track isn’t there to warn him. It is there to warn the wall.
