Such Great Heights

August 10, 2009

While Chris Sabo’s Goggles spent the last three days melting at Lollapalooza, the Reds quietly took 2-of-3 against the San Francisco Giants.   Good for them.

And they traded David Weathers to Milwaukee! 

Actually, I hear he wasn’t actually traded, he was just locked in a broom closet at Miller Park with a “Take me. Please!” Post-It note stuck to his forehead.  Apparently the Brewers took the bait.


It was nice to see Aaron Harang win his first game since the Clinton administration, and that the Scott Rolen trade is paying off in spades. 

I know, not Rolen’s fault, but how are the Reds going to WIN NOW if Rolen isn’t playing?  This team has a very small window of opportunity left and the time to strike is now!

Okay, not really.

    You are such a sarcastic, funny guy I think it’s great!!!
    Now seriously,I often wonder why it is that Dick Pole gets so much critisizm about the pitching staff when a pitcher is not doing so well,but no credit when the pitcher does better? such like Harang pitching better his last few starts, or Bailey this year compared to last,don’t give me that Lear teaching him the splitter crap,that helped but his location and velosity are better too.I’m not a Pole fanatic, but it seems to be a bit unfair.What do you think.

    Did you really just try to give Dick Pole praise for his work with HOMER Bailey? How can anyone take that comment seriously with that in there? HOMER?!

    Dick Pole has done one thing right — turning Homer Bailey from a really sucky pitcher into just a sucky pitcher.

    Nice job, Dick.
