Cincy didn't add much to their team in the offseason, but they do have the two top pitchers under LT contracts. I guess it will be at least 2 years before they threaten to make the playoffs. Hooray for small market teams!

Keep an eye out for Travis Wood in a few years. He was drafted by Cincy a few yrs ago as a pitcher out of the town I live in. He had his HS team nationally ranked & can bring the gas. Suprisingly, the usually frugal Reds got him enough of a signing bonus to forego pitching for the Razorbacks.

Coincidentally, your crosstown rivals, the Indians have a pitcher from the town I live in as well...Cliff Lee. I think he just got hurt, but will be a vital cog in their starting rotation if he keeps progressing

Apparently, the fans who love him get outweighed by the few who get on Griffey due to lack of numbers (mostly due to constant injuries). We love him anyway, but he feels its just due to him putting up historical stats. Which is F'g crazy because they aint THAT good. Get with it Griffey, you sound/act like a child!

Are you gonna start a pool as to what date that Griffey has a season ending injury? Hamilton looks like a Comeback Player of the Year candidate...if he stays away from Mr. Brownstone. Just kidding, I'm rooting for the kid. He's got a chance for rehabbing his career after rehabbing his life. Pretty significant, considering he has a wife & kid. Of course, as a Dodger fan, I always hoped Steve Howe would get his act together, too, so I know it's a tough road to hoe.

I'm looking forward to the Mid_august slump that the Reds always go into, that way they'll bring Homer Bailey up for the end of the year and get him ready for next year. By the way about what you were saying about Griffey in earlier posts, when he left Seattle, he was by far the best player in the league and still is a first ballot hall of famer. He was on pace to beat Aaron's homerun record if I remember correctly. He just can't stay healthy anymore.

stonebreakerwasgod
04-01-2007, 01:24 AM
Was is the operative word. :) He hasn't been healthy since he came here. We support him, but any fan will boo if their big gun doesn't perform. We lost good people and pitching to get that 'bum'. Hell, I remember going to see him play in San Bernardino when he played 1A ball with the Spirit. Talk about hype!! He lived up to it, no doubt, but not with the reds.

NDBCSChamps
04-01-2007, 01:50 AM
Yeah but the fact that he has had major injuries hasn't helped alot. I mean he's been in the bigs I think like 15+ years, thats a lot of wear and tear. I used to live in Cincy so I know what kind of crappy he catches up there, but he hasn't been healthy and besides Dunn what did he ever have around him. Kearns? He couldn't out hit Felipe Lopez his last year in Cincy, he underperformed after his rookie year. And Carl Lindner was a joke of an owner, seriously the guy is a freaking billionaire and rarely put any money into the team.I am so glad he sold the Reds. So you can't say Jr. is the only reason the Reds haven't been contenders. There have been so many bad personnel decisions by the Reds front office I surprised they were in the hunt last year. Honestly, I think the Reds will make a serious title run in a few years under their new ownership.

The pitching certainly looks better this year, except Milton, who would be gone except for his huge paycheck. But the Reds are keeping 6 guys around (mostly on IR) so that come late May, if some guys arent' performing, I think you will see some changes. Good job on the part of the GM to have a good backup plan.

I think Phillips is going to be solid. Beyond that, who knows? He could be really good, or just ok. I like his defense and his speed. His bat tends to come and go.

I think Josh Hamilton is the guy I would draft from the reds. He could be dangerous.

Once again the 'natural' Josh Hamilton came up big. Two homeruns, and an awesome throw from the outfield to nail a runner at 3rd. Too bad the reds are have a CRAPPY bullpen.

IRISHDODGER
05-07-2007, 09:37 AM
Hamilton is the "feel good" story of the year thus far. I think he had to sit out from 2002-2006 due to his drug problems. That's a lot of time to sit around and get fat or lose your timing at the plate, which he obviously did NOT do. The kid is starting to look like the 5 tool player he was out of high school when the DRays gave him the biggest signing bonus ever (at the time).

The Reds mgr, Narron, has a brother who coached Hamilton in high school in North Carolina. I think he coached him on an all-star team or something. Any way, he vouched for the kid, as well when they were deciding to purchase his rights. The Cincy GM made a deal w/ the Cubs so another team wouldn't beat them to the punch in the supplemental draft. The Cubs drafted him & sold him to the Reds as agreed & the rest could be history as if he continues to tear up the NL, he'll be the steal of the century!

Oh yeah, Go Dodgers!

stonebreakerwasgod
05-07-2007, 10:19 AM

Texas Rangers will deal Volquez to Reds

The Texas Rangers spent most of 2007 trying to build up the starting pitching depth in the organization. Friday, they put that depth to use.

The Rangers reached into their stock of young starters and used one, Edinson Volquez, to address one of their more pressing needs, the outfield. The Rangers, sources confirmed, have agreed to send Volquez and minor league pitcher Daniel Herrera to Cincinnati for power-hitting Josh Hamilton.

In a way, it's a trade of one successful rebuilding project for another. While Volquez worked his way back from Class A last year to have a successful September for the Rangers, Hamilton overcame a long history of injuries and addiction issues to have an impressive rookie season for the Reds.

Hamilton, who will turn 27 in May, hit .292 with a .922 on-base-plus-slugging average in 90 games. He also hit 19 home runs and drove in 47 runs.

i don't know how he compares with other owners, but i always root against them because of him and what he's done. my gripes:

1) i hate the "Los Angeles Angels nowhere near Los Angeles, actually in Central Orange County, not the Orange County in New York or Florida, of Anaheim"
2) advertising is out of control; there's barely any space in the stadium that is not filed with signage
3) as of last year, all the good seats were converted to season tickets only. so you either have to buy a season ticket package, you can find those tickets on the ticket exchange, but you then have to pay all sorts of fees to get the single game tickets.
4) the game isn't the main attraction, it's a side show compared to the between innings "entertainment" (everything is an advertising gimmick, see #2)

ironically, they are one of three teams i actually like watching. i just happen to like watching them lose. if arte "i need a map to figure out where my team is located" moreno were to fix #1, i would stop rooting against them.

He wants to win a title... he's a millionare but not the like of Steinbrenner where he has unlimited money... he must earn money elsewhere to stay ahead and keep spending... LA brings in more money than OC from a marketing standpoint... and who cares about where the team is??? there are other sports franchises are NOT in the city they claim, just near it... and no one gripped about the Los Angeles Rams who played in the same freaking building... if the city of Anahiem hadn't put up such a fit no one would have cared.. and btw since when is Anaheim nowhere near L.A.??? So Cal's not like Texas and it's not like the Cowboys moved ten hours away to El Paso and kept the name "Dallas" Cowboys... it's a freaking 30 minute drive

2) advertising is out of control; there's barely any space in the stadium that is not filed with signage

Some have said it's like a Minor League park in that regard... I say hey, that pays that one extra players salary and if his yearly totals are the difference between the post season or early off season I say put up another billboard...

3) as of last year, all the good seats were converted to season tickets only. so you either have to buy a season ticket package, you can find those tickets on the ticket exchange, but you then have to pay all sorts of fees to get the single game tickets.

As of last year??? I have been going to the big A since birth and my parents had their honeymoon there... Disney ripped out 1/3 of the seats, jacked the price up and converted everything on the lower deck to season tix... Arte has up'd the tiket packages park wide sure but those ticket packages work out to be 9 bucks a tiket in most cases... I know b/c I bought a set of four for my fam for x mas...

4) the game isn't the main attraction, it's a side show compared to the between innings "entertainment" (everything is an advertising gimmick, see #2)

I don't know what you are reffering to here... the cow milking or players contests they have??? that all goes back to the Gene Autry days... It was a good idea then and is now... do you have kids???

No, I'm not a Dodger fan. Dodger games are where Raiders fans go to drink and take out their frustrations over no pro-football team in LA. I do like watching them, along with the Angels and Braves. I haven't had a team for years.

Johnny Cueto's huge debut as a Red.

SPECTACULAR!
In his first professional start, he went 7 innings, gave up one hit, had 10 k's. Not only did he not walk anyone, but he didn't even have a 3 ball count on any batter.
He overshadowed the first closing of Cordero, who went 1-2-3 in the ninth to record his first save as the high-priced closer.

Last pitcher to record 10 k's in his debut.....Dice k.

Very impressive......did he knock in the winning run or anything?

Volquez debuted today for the Reds....and had this line: 5 1/3, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 8 K

Not too shabby, as the Redlegs beat the Phillies 8-2, and now sit at 4-2 on the year.

Volquez looked really impressive.... he got flustered once and I thought he may unravel and give up more than just the one run but he re-composed himself and got the K to get out of the jam.
