Redleg Nation editors Chris and Bill joined me for this edition of the Redleg Nation Radio podcast. It was a fun discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of the 2009 Reds, pitching, defense, the LF situation, whether Brandon Phillips should move to shortstop, and much, much more.

    You guys are just pumping these things out in rapid fire fashion early this year huh?

    Multimedia is always fun. Downloading it now.

    Finally got my office set up at home with the equipment to podcast. Much easier to produce now, so we’re hoping to make it a regular feature.

    This one was fun because of the discussion. I’m sure everyone will enjoy it much more than just listening to me drone on by myself.

    Loved the banter on the two versus three catchers!

    It is surprising that Arroyo’s name has not come up once in any trade talk.

    If the defense has improved, it is by only a very marginal amount. How important would a major improvement by EE in his throwing mechanics be?

    If Taveras struggles over the past two or three months and Stubbs gets off to a very good start at AAA, will Walt/Dusty make the move and go with Stubbs. He is fast though not Willy fast.

    Speaking of how many guys can we bat 8th, do the Reds have any offensive black holes as big as Patterson and Bako?

    Taveras will have to really show me something in CF to convince me that he is Stubbs equal defensively. I watched this kid play CF in Dayton and he makes difficult catches look routine. He’s very, very good defensively.

    I’m not as big a fan of his as Doug is, I think he’ll struggle offensively; but his defense is top notch.

    Question…if the Reds only carry two catchers and if Owings makes the team as a starter (thus could be used as a PH), doesn’t that free up two roster spots from last year?

    Yeah Chad, your lone podcasts were ok because you weren’t talking for an hour+ all by yourself. Interaction is great though, because it keeps things live and fresh with differing opinions. Really enjoyed this one.

    Chad, really enjoyed this podcast. I woke up this morning and it was -12 and it was only 3 when I left the house to run some errands. But, having some intelligent baseball conversation to listen to in this deadly winter brought a little warmth. It was good–it wasn’t too pessimistic, but it wasn’t stupidly optimistic either.

    Keep it up.

    “intelligent baseball conversation”? I thought it was Chris, Chad, and myself? Hmmmm….wonder who he got for this?

    Bill, perhaps he downloads multiple podcasts from a lot of sites and got yours mixed with another one, hence the intelligent baseball conversation (kidding of course).
