I'm Stupid, But I'm Not That Stupid

Reds GM Walt Jocketty, in Sunday's Cincinnati Enquirer, lied to us. Here was his explanation of Jay Bruce remaining in AAA Louisville:

"Right now, it's a matter of playing time," Jocketty said. "The place to play him would be center field but we've got (Ryan) Freel, (Corey) Patterson and (Norris) Hopper. We're trying to sort through all this. At some point, we're going to just have to do it."

I realize Jocketty can't mention the words arbitration and clock in the same sentence, but that doesn't mean he has to insult us in the process. Does he really think we believe this nonsense?

How about my two favorite players being on such a hot streak? Lance Berkman and Adam Dunn are killing the ball. Berkman is a personal favorite, i met him the first time i went to Minute Maid Park and he was such a nice guy. He was alot better than the time Michael Irvin was suppose to sign autographs after a charity basketball game i went to. He ran out of the arena. I watched him take off his jersey and run away.
