Tonight’s game at Boston Chad Dotson 06/14/2005 5 Here’s a game thread for tonight’s tilt with the Bosox. Enjoy, and go Reds! 🙂 Share this:TweetPrint Related 5 Responses Chris 06/14/2005 Yes, we’re being trounced again. At least someone finally got a hit. I think the Reds took a very bad, unprofessional approach to this trip. They were all wound up in the Fenway aspects of the trip (taking tours, lying on their backs in the grass, sneaking souveniers, etc.) that they totally forgot they were a professional baseball team playing games that count. They’ve treated this like an exhibition. Boston hasn’t. Joel 06/14/2005 The Red Sox are treating it like an exhibition too…a hitting exhibition. It’s funny to hear the Sox announcers act like it is just the Sox bats coming alive. I want to call them and tell them that everybody does this against this pitching staff. Glenn 06/14/2005 This team just can’t seem to get going. Swept by the Rocks. Win 2 out of 3 against the O’s. And now lost two straight to the Red Sox. The hitting seems to either be very, very good or non-existant. The pitching is almost always bad. This season’s in the tank. I just hope the Reds don’t panic and start again with their annual house cleaning for “prospects”. Heath 06/14/2005 Well, if current trends continue – this ought to be a fun series this weekend in Atlanta…. Tyler 06/15/2005 The Reds do need to dump for prospects IMO. They are not going to win with the way this team is assembled. They need to dump Milton for a bucket of ball and maybe some pine tar(I know I’m asking a lot). Dump salary while keeping the core in tact. Harang, Hudson, Claussen, Kearns, Dunn, WMP, Felipe, Encarnacion, should be the only untouchables. The rest are free game. The way this team is set up now it can never win. Get as much pitching for Casey as you can. Dump Griffey on the Yanks where he can DH/CF for Eric Duncan and a couple of high ceiling guys. Start over the right way. When Bowden dumped salary, he compromised the future with dumping Williamson(who should be our closer). We need to get someone in here who can evaluate talent though. O’Brien is not the guy to do this. If we can make these trades, it frees up a lot of money to spend WISELY! With that young core of hitting, as well as guys like Hudson, Claussen, and Harang starting we’ve got a start. We need to develop and make good FA signings. Not 25 mil to the HR king of pitching.
