don' give up yet. Remember 1964.If you can't or weren't born yet the Reds were in a lot bigger hole than this.

With as streaky every team in this race has been, including the Reds, I disagree that it is over. Still have 3 at GABP with the Padres too.

Well, she'll just have to wait because no self-respecting diva would think of going on stage without the proper make-up on. Heaven knows she doesn't want to look washed out under all of those lights. Send her down to make up and then down to wardrobe before she comes on stage!

I don't get how some people can get away with calling themselves fans sometimes.

fan  /fæn/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[fan] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation

–noun an enthusiastic devotee

What ever happened to just laying it out there and having a little hope or faith... enthusiasm for your team rather than calling in the proverbial fat lady during hard times.

This team will go on a tear soon. The offense is not this bad. The pitching may be, but they have to win the Harang/Arroyo games, and lately the Milton ones! I haven't given up hope, but last night did put a dent in the armor.

I think this team has one hot streak left in them before the end of the season. But it had better start real quick if it's going to have any impact whatsoever.

To each his own, but I don't see the point in even paying attention if you're always assuming the worst. I guess pessimism is just a pet-peeve of mine.

And they didn't finish first. But i still have some hope. I think they could still go on a hot streak.

Of the 24 games left the Reds play the Pirates and Cubs 13 times. So it is not over yet.

I can't even believe people are so quick to pull the trigger! Have you not watched this team all year? Grande and Welsch have over-emphasized all year how this team [I]NEVER QUITS[I] so what makes you think they want to quit now? We've got a nice long homestand, and I'm not hating on Griffey, but we played better without him in April with a lot of those games being at home. Let's stay optimistic and get out to the ballpark and watch our team! Tonight's crowd was pathetic. If you don't want this team to show up then come out and support!


See you at the ballpark...
