Dam you Reds, stop winning & trade Graves!

Postby RynMan » Mon May 31, 2004 12:57 am

Every time that Graves gets a save, i look like more and more of a fool for trading him away. I bailed on him thinking the reds will deal him at the break, but so far with the Reds winning, they may be holding onto him after all!!! dammit!!! I still think tho that the reds will be very lucky to make the playoffs in the best division in baseball. Dam you graves owners for now!

No offense to the Reds but there is no way they will be able to contend with Houston and Chicago with their starting rotation and BP, it will catch up to them.

They've also been reaping the rewards of hot streaks from Casey, Dunn and Griffey.

I agree with you to a point. Casey probably won't keep this up all year (he's now batting .392!), but to say that Griffey is on a hot streak I don't agree with. His BA is still terrible...we all knew the power was still there, so he's finally just healthy, he's not really on a hot streak. When he goes on a hot streak his average will come up to the proper .270 range.

I'm assuming you meant the Reds benefitted from Dunn's earlier hot streak, b/c he's ice cold now (some would argue he's not really cold either, just back to normal).

I agree though, assuming Houston and Chicago's staff's become healthy, the Reds would need some definite luck to make the playoffs.

Reds will drop, it will be the Cards, the Cubs, and maybe the Cards in the race in Sept. This always happens to the NL center- they are always bunched up in the beginning. I'd wait until the 'Stros' staff and the Cubs staff to be healthy before dealing Graves.
