Castellini mum on the Reds

CEO Bob Castellini was on the field for batting practice, as far as I can tell it was his first appearance down there since Opening Day. He had an extended conversation with Wayne Krivsky.

I tracked Castellini down afterward, but he didn't want to talk.

"We've just got to come out of this and we will," he said. "Catch me when I'm feeling better."

No moves were made before the game. I'm told nothing is coming anytime soon. But check back after the eighth inning tonight.

Nothing anytime soon?

Perhaps when this team is 15 games out, this organization will feel the urgency to make some moves to fix this pathetic bullpen and other problems.

I don't get it.

How about this headline:


Yep, that's the rest of the summer unless they shake something up. I am not wasting my money on the crap they continue to put on the field.

Didn't have to wait until the 8th tonight!!! Coffey and Weathers pitch again. How many times can you run these guys out - night in and night out. Nobody can throw that many innings, including the game and warmups, and be expected to deliver. Their arms have to be ready to fall off. This comes down to overuse and lack of talent. Castellini can be mum on all he wants. I have been to 7 games and I'm tired of watching this crap. No more games until they show me an effort to right the ship.

At this rate, after this weekend, I wouldn't worry about making a move for the sake of saving this season. I'd only make moves based on next year. No need to rush Guardardo, Bray, etc. Let Homer fine tune his stuff on AAA and continue to run Milton out there every fifth start. The suits in this organization are whistling by the graveyard like the future matters more than the present. Didn't this regime speak about winning and doing so now?

eric milton has not won in 13 starts.

How can you continue to throw Milton out there every fifth day if you're trying to win. He's not pitching horribly but not great either. The reds position players cannot be playing with a lot of confidence knowing that probably 60% of the games that Milton has started over the last 3 years they've lost. You have 3 guys who are ready to pitch in the bigs and they deserve a shot......they can't be any worse right.

What a joke, this organization needs to be leveled or moved to another city, the reds do nothing right starting with management and ending with those "pitchers" that come in from the bullpen and throw gas on the fire. Level the stadium and turn it into a parking lot so it can look like the area next to the stadium, it will add extra space to tailgate for Bengals games...

Coffey gets creamed, Salmon gets speared, or we have bad Weathers. What's a Reds fan to do but blush?

I didn't watch today's game because they must lose every game with the bullpen and MILTON. I can't get why Reds fans go to Great American Ball Park.

Fire Krivsky, fire Narron. Fire every pitcher over 32 years of age. Let the young arms fire away and tell the rest of the guys to swing for the fences. They'll still probably lose but at least it will be fun to watch.
