On Hamilton, Gonzalez

Josh Hamilton has a mild right hamstring strain. At this point, that probably ends his season. He's not going on the 11-day road trip. Asked if Hamilton would play again this season, Pete Mackanin said: "It's hard to guess. I wouldn't think so."

Alex Gonzalez has a bone bruise of the left knee. It's unrelated to ball he took off the shin Sunday. He is going on the trip. He's listed as day-to-day.

Norris Hopper will get the bulk of the time in center. Mackanin said he may take a look at Buck Coats.

Does Mackrivsky want to take a look at Buck Coats or is that coming from his boss as usual?

Since Krisky has done a fine job rebuilding most of the Reds organization, from the pitful state it was in, probably trying to see what they got when they picked him up.

I think of it this way, the Reds know what they got in Bruce and Votto, but in these guys. If these new guys can't play well now, better to know before the season is over then to discover it half way through the year next year.

It's disappointing that Josh Hamilton ends the year injured, but it is for the best that he not risk a more serious injury.

Looks like Hamilton is going to be the Eric Davis of the 21st century. Amazing talent, will never play a full season due to injuries. Dunn has his faults, but he plays everyday and is about to become the first player in Reds history to hit 40 home runs in 4 consecutive seasons.
