    Un-*******-believable.
    D'Backs say they have a few offers of equal value on the table, so I expect it to be a little bit more than that

    Magruder quotes Hall, the D'Backs CEO, as saying: "There are some other teams involved that have deals of at least equal value out there. I would not categorize the Yankees as a front-runner."

        • Why do teams cater to the Yankees? That deal for Haren is terrible.

          • The Reds will use this lineup tonight:
            2B Phillips
            SS Cabrera
            1B Votto
            LF Nix
            RF Bruce
            CF Stubbs
            C Hernandez
            3B Janish
            SP Cueto

            Dusty Baker IS the worst manager. Ever.

                Manuel might be the 2nd worst.

                But after years of a .240 clean up hitter, using our best starters in relief, making bonehead pitching changes (or lack thereof), even worse pinch hitting and almost a refusal to start the young up and comers, Dusty is still the worst.

                OCab was TERRIBLE in June. Yet he kept playing of Paul Janish.
                The outfield has struggled, yet Chris Heisey is yet to start.

                Nick Masset continues to do a wonderful job of giving up base hits and still is put in during close games we have a lead in.

                Cordero....If you want a picture of overpaid and overvalued.

                • I think you just want something to ***** about. Gomes hasn't been hitting well lately, and a righty is pitching. Janish has played excellently this year, and Cairo needs a day off.


                  <@JBond> And Dg, you'd waste it on corndogs
                  <@JBond> So you get no 5 dollars
                  <+DG> how is buy one get one free wasting?

                    That is a terrible line ANY way you want to slice it. I have no problem with Janish at 3rd. NONE. Where did I say otherwise?
                    Nix ******* blows whale *****. He is terrible. Chris Heisey would be much much better. He has no right and I mean NO right to be batting cleanup.

                    Janish has been hitting well. And that is why he shouldnt be at the bottom. Below guys who cant buy a hit.
                    It is laughable. Even with the players in the line up, it could be constructed much better.

                    If I just wanted something to ***** about, I would be a Browns fan.

                    • Look at that lineup and tell me who should be batting 4th? Bruce has been terrible lately, and there is no one else with power available. Maybe Heisey should be playing, but again, that's a righty-righty matchup, and we still don't have a 4 hitter. Sometimes you have limited options available.

                      Cabrera just went 2-4. It's safe to say that he can "buy a hit". Bruce just had his best game in a while, going 1-3. He has been awful. No way you can bat him cleanup.

                      You criticize, but meanwhile you offer no better alternatives.

                        Put Phillips back at cleanup. Or Joey.
                        Bruce would be better at clean up. Nix is pathetic.
                        Heisey hits righties better than lefties.

                        1. O-Cab
                        2. Janish
                        3. Joey
                        4. Phillips
                        5. Bruce
                        6. Heisey
                        7. Ramon
                        8. Cueto
                        9. Stubbs

                        Without Rolen, we need to look into the LaRussa style of lineup.

                            Please don't tell me you are complaining about having Dunn as your cleanup hitter for years...

                            But other than that, yes Dusty is awful.

                            • Phillips was awful in the 4 hole, and I don't think it is a good idea to bounce him around. You could argue Bruce or Nix in the 4 hole either way, but regardless, I don't think it matters much.

                              I'm not a Nix fan by any means (in fact, he's far and away my least favorite player on the team) but he needs to get some starts as well. I would prefer Heisey, but I can understand the starting of Nix.

                              As for your earlier complaints about the bullpen, I agree somewhat. I don't know why Dusty has been so insistent on pitching Massett, but I think virtually ever team has a similar problem there.

                              I really am not a Dusty fan. I think he has been to lenient on players, and he mishandles relievers. However, I really can't complain about this lineup.

                                Griffey. Then he moved to 3rd. And Dunn took over.
                                Those two combined was bad. Bad for the club house. Bad on the field.
