Stanton gets a $2.75 million parting gift if the Reds DFA'd him.

A testament to D-word GM.

Well, I guess we'll file that under Krivsky's "Bad Move" category. He's getting quite a collection these days.

Somewhere right now Rheal Cormier is eating filet mignon on Castellini's coin.

what took so long? by the way, did you see encarnacion's at bat in the 4th inning of today's game? he swings at more bad pitches than any player in baseball! he got 6 pitches in that at bat...ALL out of the zone and of course struck out! any one who thinks this guy should play ahead of keppenger is a baseball moron!!!!!!!!

Bellhorn couldn't even hit .200 in half a season with S.D. last year. Wouldn't it be better to have Jay Bruce Pinch-Hitting, down 3-1, with two runners on base?

The Cincinnati Almosts are run by people who "play to lose." I can't stand the GM and owner's approach to baseball...Bellhorn walked to load the bases...but still, Bellhorn and the Ellison don't belong on the Reds.

Votto and Bruce should have been up here many weeks ago.

Detroit calls up a 20-year old today, who hit a Home Run off Clemens, and Cowboy just said he thinks Bruce is a better player than Maybin.

Come on Bob, this isn't the produce business ya know!

THAT may indicate that present Reds coaches and the manager lack the backbone or teaching skills to FORCE the Encarnacion to adopt a more disciplined approach to hitting...same goes for Dunn's lack of plate discipline often on display.

But it all goes back to the owner who is too soft and quiet. Steinbrenner wouldn't stand for this crap, Castellini apparently lacks the "fire in the belly" necessary to win. Oh sure, he wants to win, and he talks a great game...but when it comes right down to it, if the owner doesn't call you out from time to time, these lazy millionaires on the field will do whatever the hell they please.

Keppinger is much better than even a disciplined Encarnacion though... that's for sure!

Encarnacion just struck again...out that is! Justin's right, how can we win with Dunn who simply can't hit with RISP, Encarnacion who simply won't take a pitch and McKanin who simply won't stop using Stanton???

Final Score: Reds Bullpen 5, Reds 4

PATHETIC!
