  1. “And there’s a shot into right-center!”

    So says George Grande, just before the second baseman hauled in a popup three steps onto the grass.

    Boy, he’s just terrible.

  2. Yes, Grande is horrible. I do enjoy laughing at chris “don’t I look like Tom Selleck with my mustache?” welsh when he talks about his horrible pitching career.

    I’m actually rooting for Aurillia to get hot enough for the Reds to trade him. Maybe if he puts up good enough numbers we could get something like a new asst equipment manager, or a new bucket of sunflower seeds. Keep up the good work Rich!

  3. Dan, you took the words out of my mouth. Letting Aurilia hit at Coors gives him a great opportunity to improve his stats, and make a trade seem like less of an impossible pipe dream. So far he’s taking advantage.

  4. Question: Why does Miley bring the infield in, with a 4-4 score and a runner on 3rd in the 6th inning (at Coors Field)? Does he really think that this game is going to end up 5-4 over the next 3 innings?

    In any event, the strategy backfires (as usual), and the Reds are now down 5-4.

  5. Lopez, Griffey and Randa are the only ones playing ball. Kearns and Dunn are napping and the pitching staff is the worst in the league. Aurilla’s part of the problem but in the same breath, getting rid of him doesn’t solve much. Miley has got to go. What’s Sparky doing these days? He might be 105 years old, but he could be three days dead and still do a better job than Miley is right now.

  6. Sparky is younger than McKeon!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Tyler, you ruined my day. I’d forgotten how bad the Reds had screwed over McKeon. That was another legacy left over from the Bowden years. Thou shalt screw over anyone who brings success to the organization.
