    I wouldn't mind getting rid of Rolen and Cordero.

    I just realized yesterday how much money Cordero makes. It's stupid. Rolen is a great Vet to have but he's really old now and is gonna retire anytime so it wouldn't be bad at all to trade him for someone. We REALLY need a good SS. The games i have watched Janish has been terrible. Maybe make a trade or two and look at calling up some of the prospects.

    Just checked the newest standings. It's actually not as bad as it feels. It feels like we are 6 GB.. But were only 2.5 GB. That isn't much of a big deal. It was later in the season last year when we made our big break and passed the Cards after the fight. I think and hope we will progress and start winning more games.

    EDIT: The batting hasn't been great but really the thing that HAS to improve is the pitching. Our best ERA guy right now is Leake with a 3.89 Then our second best is Arroyo with a 5.1 and it gets worse from there. That's terrible pitching. Makes it a lot harder on the offense to feel the pressure to perform every night.

    For all that post on the Reds thread.

    I think you should tune into a few innings on 700 or 950 AM and Listen to Marty Brennan. He is on par w/ Slick Leonard. It is an interesting and informative perspective.


    You can thank me later.

    In 3 weeks I will be in panic mode and wanting a fire sale. No Bats again. Interleague Play has been a curse this season.

    Cordero to the Braves makes a lot of sense. I think they have the most talent to pick from.

    Hernadez to Pirates also makes sense. The Reds have a young catcher they can move up or give Hanigan everyday duties.

    The pitching has been respectable. It is the lack of offense ie inconsistency. I cant believe the Reds are top in the NL in runs scored and put together back to back games of 0/2/0/1 in a four game span. I am MIFFED, Fire Hitting Coach, easy move but HIT the Ball.

    why would the Pirates be buyers? That makes zero sense.


    You guys could use a pitcher or two. Dempester or Z seem like good fits. But i bet the bum Henry tries to save his job and doesn't sell. I hate that guy with a passion. Billy Beane please! Honestly think what Beane could do with 140 million dollar pay roll.

    Pirates need a catcher. Ryan Doumit is injured and a DH & Snyder is hurt as well. They have had 3 this week.

    Pirates have the best closer in the central and are getting quality starting pitching. They have a chance.

    The Pirates can just call a guy up from AAA. No way in hell the Pirates trade a prospect for a veteran they aren't close to contending that would just be stupid IMO.

    Pirates are only 1.5 games out of 1st place. The Central is up for grabs. Pittsburgh needs a catcher that can throw guys out FYI the C that started the season for the Indians [AAA] Miller reassigned and two have been called up in the last week. It is a more complex situation than just calling guys up.

    I would put 20 dollars that the Pirates will not be buyers at the deadline i mean they are the Clipper of baseball it just isn't gonna happen IMO they don't care about winning. I bet they will use thaat extra money and sign some international free agents. The Cubs spent almost 3m dollars on two 16 year olds. Last time we did this we ended up getting Starlin Castro at age 16. I just see the Pirates more willing to spend for the future than spending money and a prospect on a older catcher. Again just my opinion. But again I didn't see them signing Kevin Correria for nearly 8m dollars they could of used that 8m on the draft and players they could keep for 6 yrs before becoming free agents.

    Have you watched the Cubs lately? our season was over ages ago lol. I like watching good baseball i watch the Reds a little and the Cards a little. I vowed i watched my last Cubs game for the season a few weeks ago. I just cant take us beating ourselves day after day.

    I'm so sick of seeing Volquez suck. We need to cut our losses and pull him from the rotation. At this point we can't even trade him because he's got negative value.

    It seriously infuriates me to watch him pitch. Volquez starts, you can almost guarantee he gives up at least 3 yard jobs and 5-10 ERs.

    Correria is an 11 game winner. The Pirates are 4 games over .500. They have sold out the last two games. This could be their first winning season since 1992. They have to make a move if they are still in contention in 3 weeks. They did invest money in Snyder [veteran catcher w/ bat] but he has a back injury. Doumit is also often injured. It makes sense like them to invest in a veteran short term catcher and Ramon Hernadez is just that.

    Look up the Reds in 2006 w/ the Felipe Lopez trade.

    It is not like he constanly makes a ton of terrible of pitches. He makes dumb pitches in key situations ie Haliday's 3 R HR last night. It is a lack of focus.

    We just need to tell Cueto to get his stamina crazy high and pitch every day.

    The Giants have interest in Soto of the Cubs and are also interested in Reds catcher Ramon Hernandez.

    Lack of focus, bad pitches, bad decisions, I don't care. What he does CONSISTENTLY is give up runs in bunches and put the team consistently in a position to have to try to come from behind. He hasn't been the same pitcher since his Tommy John surgery/PED suspension.

    I'd be kind of sad to see Ramon go. He's grown on me quite a bit since we got him. It COULD end up being a good thing because Hanigan could become the regular starting C and Mesocaro is going to be a stud by most accounts. Just wouldn't want to throw Mesocaro into the fire before he's ready. Plus Ramon has a great bond with our Dominican pitchers.

    Dude if Chapman pitched like he did last night at least 70% of the time, he'd be the most dominant reliever in baseball.

    Last nights loss burned. Reds must win the next 3 games or else.

    Don't give me this too early, lame *** crap.

    It is not too early. The Brewers are playing w/o their horse Braun.


    Base Running is terrbible. Fielder had back to back errors & we dont score Phillips. Bailey walks the pitcher than gives up a 3 R HR to the next batter.
