After listening to Waynr and 'Doc' mush it up on WLW tonight, I about threw up. And now seeing sudden 'sweaterpants love' dripping across the blogishpere - I say. Bullshit.
Waynr did an overall C+ job. Jockerty is a proven GM. Castellini wants to at least give the perception of wanting to win now. Bob could give a rat's ass about alienating 'baseball people'. He truly wants a winner. Therefore he brought in some one who he thinks can take the organization to the next level. Waynr's booting should send a signal to the entire organization as well. That being 'Big Bob's' not messing around. I think he's had enough of the Stantons, Castros, Cormiers, 3 catcher rosters,Josh Fogg and the list goes on and on - and so have the fans and certainly I have had enough.
Now the Reds need to get the roster in balance, weed out the guys who are placeholders or unproductive and bring up Bruce, Bailey and anyone else who can help benefit the team growth for a stong 2009.
Finally If I hear on more sports radio caller say that the answer to the Red's woes is to get rid of Adam Dunn and use the money saved to 'buy' a strong pitcher and maybe a RH bat, I am going to throw up. Utilize the guy's strengths and stop trying make him into what he isn't, the same with EdE, Votto and the rest.
GO REDS - The season has just begun!
