Rangers 11, Reds 4

Ugly loss to end the homestand. Bronson Arroyo had another rough outing: Six innings, eight hits, seven runs (six earned). Three errors -- David Ross, Juan Castro and Alex Gonzalez. Three relievers combine to give up four runs in ninth.

The highlight for the Reds: Adam Dunn went 2-for-4 with two home runs. His trade stock has to be up. Hes' hitting .350 with five homers and 11 RBI over his last 14 games.

The Reds finished the homestand 4-5.

Marty and Jeff made comments today regarding Bronson Arroyo's "rock n roll" career. They implied that he needs to spend more time working on his pitching than worrying about what song he's gonna open up the 2nd set with. Do you have any thoughts one way or another on that?

I personally don't think that has anything to do with it. Other guys play golf, hunt and fish. His hobby happens to be a well-publicized one.

I'm tempted to approve of a Dunn trade (they can spare an outfield bat), except the Reds would probably trade him for a Majewski-type and a hot dog. Here's an article with more on a possible Dunn trade: http://www.thenewsroom.com/details/413386?c_id=wom-bc-bh

What I saw and heard yesterday was lethargy, no emotion, no anger about losing a series to the worst team in baseball. The three outfielders were engaged in a happy powwow between the 8th and 9th innings in the outfield with seemingly no concern they were getting their rearends kicked. The TV broadcast was so "nice" with all the Father's Day stuff, that it coincided with the lethargy on the field. The announcers didn't get disgusted and neither did the players or coaches. The bullpen and clutch hitting are certainly a big issue, but maybe the underlying problem with this team which has existed for years is no leadership, no fire, no knowledge of how to win and overall complacency about winning. Even though I realize the manager is not the only problem, something has to change and change now, so it's time for Narron to go. Joe Girardi is about to slip out of our hands to Baltimore.
