General Banter and Breaking News

My god, it's 7:30 already?? The day is flying by. Anyhoo, just taking an opportunity to break out a new "General Banter and Breaking News" for today's bollocks.   Here's an image I found on Fark...

(Business Courier blog post) I read a lot here and there (not here, actually) about Reds fans not showing up. I guess a seventeen percent improvement, the second highest improvement in the majors, says something about the fans responding to finally having a winning season.

Lapham rips into Chad and TO

I don't get to listen to the Bengals Line when it is live, so I catch it during the week at work. Listening to hour three (labelled as "Lance and Lap take your calls on the game and who is more at fault, Carson or Bratkowski?"), the early part is Lapham giving a good go at TO and Chad for being marketeers instead of football players and then for Chad for being the (my paraphrase) "least disciplined route runner" over his career. Interesting stuff.

LOL Daugherty

"When some of us (OK, me mostly) advocated dealing, say, Votto and Homer Bailey for Oakland pitcher Joe Blanton, the Statboys came out flame-throwing numbers:" How you like me now, Daugherty? Reds weren't trying to jump a hurdle at that time. They were trying to get permission to run the race.

Should the reds make a move to replace closer?

  Should Dusty try something new as closer? (follow up to prior fanshot. Couldn't solve how to attach a poll to the existing one)

Should Reds make big bullpen move?

Article readable. The gist: Should Baker consider removing Coco from the closer role? "Yes" says author What would be so wrong about having Chapman as a "You're having a bad night, we got you covered?" reliever for Coco? [assuming Chapman hasn't already pitched and Ondrusek's uniform isn't refitted]

Sub 500 vs winning teams = "struggled". Is it a truism or just a statistic

+

I keep seeing it repeated in print or on bovine aggregate radio that the Reds "struggle" against the teams they would face in the playoffs. Save for the road series in San Francisco and the recent debacle in Colorado, I never felt like the team struggled against the teams or, as radio boy says, the starting pitching. I am inclined to believe the Reds will be competitive against any team they might face in the playoffs. Am I way off base?

Mike and Mike speed question

Listening to Mike and Mike this morning on ESPN Rad-iddly-o [1410 WING if that matters]. They have some speed round where the little dude asks Mike Golic some stuff and Golic gives a quick...

Methinks they doth protest much too much

I do... seeing others pop in here (and some Bengals supporters as well) and question (deservedly) the character of Larry Johnson led me to google a bit on character in the NFL.   Ran across this...
