Has it seemed like the Cincinnati Reds General Manager Walt Jocketty has been missing in action lately? The last two weeks have been brutal for the Reds, with players under-performing and others coming down with injuries. Homer Bailey, Sam LeCure, and Matt Maloney are all banged up, with Maloney being placed on the disabled list so someone who can pitch might be called up from the minors.
But that’s the extent of the moves. Nothing but shuffling in one not very good piece to replace another piece that’s not doing as well as it should. With one quarter of the season down, Jocketty might consider leaving the beach and start doing something. Soon.

We got our training done early today because we’ll be off to Milwaukee this evening for a long weekend of getting away from it all. Milwaukee may not sound like much of a party town, but they’ve got beer, cheese, and a team that has gone 8-2 their last 10 instead of 2-8.
Don’t worry, we’ll still find time before we leave to write some actual content. As much of a diversion as all this training is, it’s no substitute for proper smart alecry regarding the cluster of the last couple weeks.
As usual, here’s the info on how to get involved:
1. Go to http://reds.com/5k to register for the Redlegs Run.
2. Email [email protected] to say you’ll be at the Blog Jog events before and/or after the run.
3. Go to Cafe Press to order your Red Hot shirt, in styles for women or men.
You pay to register for the run, but there’s no additional charge for hanging with the bloggers.
