    Chad,
    The column(that should be) on the right side of the screen is in the center column, kinda in front of the center column text…..it just started doing this last night. Is this an issue with the new lay-out or is it a problem with the settings on my browser ( IE )….Anyone ??? – Thanks

    No, but I’m sure we could scrounge up Rick Sweet’s phone number. Get me Carlos Fisher. Logan, if you’re any good, we’ll see you back in Cincy some time this summer.

    Wow, Chad. That takes a strong person to reach out to his former enemy. Or is it just any port in the storm(y)?

    Someone may have posted this already, but have you guys seen this Bronson Arroyo commercial? Hilarious

    @Furniture City Red: Is it the latest version of IE? I just looked at it on IE, and it looked fine.

    Honestly, I’m not sure why anyone would use IE at this point. It’s such a terrible product.

    @Chad Dotson: Dang!…’cause it came on the computin’ machine already installed 😉 ….what would you suggest I replace it with.

    I see a trip south for Ondrusek and a trip to the 15 day DL for Masset.

    That said, Harang and Bailey better figure it out fast. Chapman is a phone call away.

    @davidmp2: Chapman’s not ready yet. LeCure, Maloney or Lehr would probably get the call before Chapman right now. Come mid-year, it might be a different story.

    @davidmp2: Even if Chapman “puts it all together” in his start at Indianapolis tomorrow, he needs a solid 1-2 months to show he can do it consistently.

    Plus, he hasn’t gone deeper than 5.0 innings in a game yet.

    I had just had a few cups of coffee this morning before I got to redleg nation. I get here to see this post from Chad. Will someone please go check on him? Maybe he just went to the bar and is drunk-posting?

    Ondrusek needs to go. Fisher has looked great in AAA

    you know, the Reds team OBP has been TERRIBLE and the main reason the offense doesn’t score.

    then I noticed the Louisville team OBP! .285!

    @mike: What are you talking about, Mike? W******* is my favorite reliever, and has been for years. You know that.

    Of course, Chad, Weathers has been your favorite reliever for years, and you were upset that he was traded and warned us of dire consequences.

    To everyone else: Wrt Weathers, Chad has a selective memory dysfunction, a form of amnesia. It is important to go along with whatever he says about his former opinion of Weathers.

    Any thoughts on what is wrong with Masset? Is his velocity down, or something looking off with his mechanics?

    You mean there are 9 teams worse??!!

    @GRF: I don’t know if it’s his mechanics, but, as someone said in the recap thread last nite, he’s missing with his slider and they’re sitting on his fastball.

    He’s throwing his fastball timidly on the outside, missing , getting behind in the count, with the predictable result.

    PS Masset’s velocity is up from last year, 94-95 mph.

    It was Sultan of Swaff who made this obervation.
