If I'm a GM and he's not playing because of injury, I'm not going to be as excited to trade for him.

The wheels are officially starting to come off. 0-6 on the road trip, the Padres are one of the worst offensive teams in baseball. But as we know, it isn't about this season, it's about building.

One positive yesterday, Amir Garrett had a good outing. Months ago that wouldn't have been a big deal, but as much as he's struggled since being recalled, him giving up 2 runs over 6 innings in a significant improvement. And think about this, of the 6 games in California, we had one start over 5 innings, and that was yesterday with Garrett. And as much as I complain about the starting pitching, the last two days in SD falls squarely on our offense. You simply can't score 2 runs in a game and expect to win. And that's what we got the last two days.

But back to Garrett, he IS part of the rebuild. Our future success is partially tied to how this kid progresses. Homer had a good 2nd rehab start yesterday, Finnigan is on his way, DeSclafani is on his way. This starting rotation may look significantly different come mid July. Now more than likely we'll be 10-12-15 games out by then so it's not a big deal this year, and we knew that.

Hey, leave the Reds alone, 14. They're playing hard and having fun. Why do you have to rain on their parade?

Not sure how much fun they are having...but they are playing hard. I don't know that anyone could be disappointed in the effort of this team.

The focus is not on the today though. But I'll be a fan everyday, no matter what happens.

Hey now...that's mean. Lance is a good guy and I can't think of a radio person who puts more into his shows than Lance does. I think with Lance and Mo Egger, Cincy has a really good duo of sports hosts.

They're having a blast, you can see it on their faces. Even Joey was joking around today. Why do you have to be such a debbie downer? Don't need negative fans like you.

Only someone who's never listened to sports radio outside of Cincinnati would say this.

You're either lying about listening to different market sports radio or you're lying about them being one of the best. Either way you're a liar.

Now you're wrong twice...I do listen to a variety of sports talk from other cities...and judging by their popularity and both having long standing careers with 700 and 1530, they must be doing something right.

I wouldn't go as far as lowest scum of society, but no doubt it's a gigantic waste of time.

Pretty close. Have you ever heard the ads during that programming? Divorce lawyers, medical trial testing volunteers, erectile dysfunction, IRS debt attorneys, etc.

Unless you listen to NPR, these types of ads are on all radio, all forms of music and talk. Also all of those annoying PSA's that tell us we need to buckle our seatbelts, put out campfires and not text and drive. Ronnie must listen to 8 track tapes or something?

That's not even remotely true. Sports talk radio advertisers know they are talking to the absolute bottom of society.

Garrett was dominant last night, very good command of a difficult pitch for youngsters, the change up.
Also good to see Robert Stephenson come in an have a couple of better innings.
Offensively, rolling right now, contributions up and down the lineup. This is fun!

Very reassuring that even in the midst of an eight game losing streak when the starting pitching has been mostly awful, in the end it's going to be fine.

Go Reds
