Kearns to AAA

Postby TheYanks04 » Sun Jun 12, 2005 2:15 pm

Guess the Reds got tired of him stinking up the joint or finding new and clever ways like "hand sores" to get on the DL.

Reds optioned outfielder Austin Kearns to Triple-A Louisville.

Talk about clueless. If I were them, I would've looked to deal Pena or Kearns. Pena has been really hot so he'd have high value, while others still believe in Kearns. I still believe in him and think that he's been struggling in part to the lack of stability in his job/motivation in Cincy this year.

absolutely moronic.

i can't imagine what they hope to accomplish, here. they've sacked his trade value, further damaged his confidence, and brought up an unproven (and unremarkable) outfielder in kenny kelly to replace him. typical reds move: poor form. :-t

yeah, yes...

If anyone has seen him play much this year you would know he has no value right now. He looks lost at the plate and hasn't made no adjustments to teams pounding him inside the last 2 years.
The Reds beat reporters say he work ethic is poor, often skipping out on xtra hitting. Hopefully this is a wake up call and can go down and work on his game and start hitting.

Sporsline player tracker claims that this means Wily Mo Pena will be playing every day. Can we really assume this?

They've changed that lineup around so many times this year with Freel, Dunn, Pena, Lopez, Aurilia...:-S

If he is out there all the time, is he worth a look?

they sacked his trade value?! i think his play did that. and obviously his coinfidence is getting destroyed in the majors. maybe he can go down for a few weeks, get hot, and gain coinfidence. i think this move was a must.

I agree with the notion that this is a poor move by Reds managment, but as a Wily Mo owner, I appreciate it.
