    I saw that Jim, but they were splitting time…that’s why Jr and Adam’s were more impressive.

    As well as Jr and Dunn have played in July, I’d like to point out that the pitching has been much, much better (almost respectable) in the second half. I was no fan of Don Gullett’s abilities as a pitching coach, but in fairness I’d have to say, that the pitching had shown some improvements prior to his firing. Whether it started under Gullett or Ruhle turned them around, I’m just glad it finally did turn around. The season’s gone as far as the Reds being in contention, but at least its not as tough to be a Reds fan as it had been.

    Yeah Greg, I wish that Dunn kid would get his act together. Its all his fault! We waste too much time harping on OB, Milton, Miley, Gullett, et al.
    Now for a serious comment. Right now, I think the biggest contributions OB has made to the team are the trades he didn’t make.

    When was the last time the Reds had a 1000+ ops from the catcher position?

    Not to mention the Reds are 13-5 since the Break. Of course we’ve played 3 teams from the NL West during that span.
