    josh i have a scenario for you see what you think after signing josh hamilton the angels have an abundance of outfielders why not take ludwick leake and a young arm like lotzker or treviseo and get a real protector behind votto, trumbo fills that role and he is young and can play left field just curious what you think ?

    They're so similar that it begins to make you wonder how the Braves can justify spending all that money on Upton. If Stubbs didn't hit .213 last year they'd be the same exact player.

    We were talking about inflated contracts for the most recent signings. Wanna see something crazy?

    Check out the last four season splits of Stubbs and BJ Upton. Considering Stubbs has played about a hundred less games than Upton, their statistics are oddly similar... And Upton just got 5-years/$75.25 million.

    I enjoy your writing. Remember, you get on a "roll" not a "role" and one can make a "concerted effort" not a "conceded effort."

    Hey Joshua, thanks for becoming a fan! I really enjoy reading your baseball content, especially about the Reds. I also saw that you played and now teach baseball, which sounds amazing. I played very seriously for a long time, mainly pitcher, and some first base. I still love the game and being from LA, the Dodgers look to have finally found their groove! Although we will see for how long haha thanks again!

    Nice to see a new face in the Reds writing community. Good first article. Oh, and Halladay didn't throw a perfect game haha give Jay Bruce a little credit for drawing the only walk.
