Share this:TweetPocket 13 Responses Y-City Jim 08/13/2008 See Crawford is down for 4 to 6 weeks for Tampa Bay. Let’s trade them Corey Patterson. Dave from Louisville 08/13/2008 No way he’d clear waivers, with hsi speed and defense. Jay Bruce for President 08/13/2008 Maybe if we’re lucky Jim Bowden would block the trade and we would say take him Dave H 08/13/2008 Hey, Dave, don’t forget his power. Fire Dusty NOW 08/13/2008 Nice touch with the “After Dunn”. Oh wow. Bases loaded ground rule double. This team is horrendous. DevilsAdvocate 08/13/2008 Dusty specializes in the 1-batter-too-late pitching change. Phill 08/13/2008 Can a brother get an effective pitcher? Kevin 08/13/2008 haha, that’s true. Think we can come up with some kind of stat dealing with the 1-batter-too-late pitching change? He is the king. Y-City Jim 08/13/2008 Stubbs 2 for 4 with a HR in his Louisville debut. Homer was mediocre. 6.1 innings, 6 K’s, 3 BB, 107 pitches. Keep working. Chris 08/13/2008 Stubbs could be interesting next year if he hits the last couple weeks at AAA. I can’t imagine they’d hand a job to him (or Frazier), but if this team finds power elsewhere, I could live with .260/.360/.400, plus-speed, and Gold Glove defense in CF. It’s an unusual profile, but it could work. Fukudome, Randy Winn, and Giles (now) have comparable lines, but lack the defense. Marty sure would sure bitch about the strikeouts, though. Jay Bruce for President 08/14/2008 trade encarnacion and let frazier play 3B in the future Eddy isnt good enough to make a spot available AnnapolisRed 08/14/2008 Homer-A friend of mine that works in minor league baseball told me that the Reds have totally screwed up Homer Bailey. They were so concerned with how fast his delivery was that they completely changed the way he throws and has lost about six MPH on his fast ball (which would explain the drop in velocity). He doesn’t think he can be salvaged in his opinion. I don’t know who’s idea that was, but he should be fired. Y-City Jim 08/14/2008 He may have lost mph earlier in the year but corrections have return him to 94-96 mph. The K’s are up but he still has to develop MLB-quality breaking pitches and off-speed pitches that he can control.
