Hi,

I have been a Reds fan for a while, and a lurker on this site. I finally decided to bite the bullet and join. I am excited about the new GM (WK) and hope the reds can make a run at the playoffs in the not so distant future.

GO REDS

Welcome, Eddie Milner was a favorite of mine during the '83-'85 campaigns. Looking back I am not sure why, but I guess I was a small, scrawney dude back then and connected with him that way.

No idea why you can't post though. I am sure someone will come along shortly and let you know what is up.

Yeap. for the last few years the answer was usually "Unfortunately" but hopefully this year is better.

2. If so, what made you become a Reds Fan?
My pops coming home from work on a Friday night after a long week and asking if I wanted to go to the game. I had my first sip of beer, first dip, first score sheet, first hot dog, and said my first profane word at Riverfront.

3. How did you learn about RedsZone?
from redreporter.com

4. How old are you?
26

5. Where are you from?
Grew up in cincy, now live in northern indiana

Nope

nope

9. Are you now or have you ever been affliated with Richard Hand or Gallagher?

10. Do you wipe front to back or back to front?
front to back

11. Would you consider having your testicles (if you are male) cut off if it would guarentee a Reds World Championship?
i would cut one off and be a uni for the rest of my life if it could bring my reds back to glory.

12. Do you think Adam Dunn is overrated and strikes out too much?
He strikes out too much, but he gets on base a ton.

I grew up two houses down from Eddie Milner and he would always throw pitches to us in the backyard. Nicest guy I ever met. I have about 30 Eddie Milner signed baseball cards because of it, they probably are worth a collective $.13 but i've kept them for 20 years and through 8 moves.

Hey, everybody. I'm new to this site. I heard about it from a fellow Reds fan.
I am from Louisville, and became a fan when Louisville became the Reds Triple-A affiliate and when the Reds acquired Jr., who has always been my favorite player. I'm looking forward to great discussions on here. I am an avid fan. I keep up with the Reds on FSN Ohio, reds.com, WLW (Marty and Steve rule!) and now this fan zone.

well, where do I start? My parents are from Ohio originally-Tiffin, Finley, and moved out of Ohio from Cincy to various states before stopping in North Carolina, where I was born. My dad raised me on the Reds, telling me stories of drinking beer with Ted K, sneaking into games after he got out of work, and teaching me ball on the Big Red Machine. I used to dress up in my soccer shins, cowboy vest on backwards, and a halloween mask to pretend I was Johnny Bench catching-and ended up staying a catcher through college and a semi-pro league. My dad and I drove from NC to Cooperstown to watch Bench get inducted-chained my chair to a fence overnight and slept in it to make sure I was front row of the crwod. I go to Spring Training yearly, and try to catch the Reds when/where I can. Oddly enough, i have never been to a game in Cincy though ;( I am now 31, live in NC still, and work with disadvantaged youth. Go to Durham Bulls games all the time, esp when the bats are in town. I got to go out and hang out with many of em a few years back-including Dunn and Kearns, after a game! I am new here, been on a few other randmom boards here and there. Besides the Reds, I am a huge Steelers fan, and UNC Tar Heels fan in every sport!!!!

I think this is a good time for this kind of thread, just to show how much incredible diversity exists here on redszone!

I grew up in Cincy - moved around a lot after dropping out of two music schools (including UC conservatory of Music) and have mostly lived in new York City since the mid 70s.

I am a professional musician - a drummer. I've recorded with BB King, Robbie Robertson, Carly Simon, Joan Osborne, The Knack and a ton more and toured with a bunch of people - from heavy metal (Ace Frehley) to jazz (Bill Evans) (that's the short version... I hate listing all the people) i also am now an educator with a book - an instructional DVD and a semi-regular column in the leading drummer's magazine. Besides playing gigs, I also do what we call Drum Clinics - and Master Classes. Sometimes at universities - and sometimes at music stores.

i don't have the time to hang out and enter conversations too often, but I get immense pleasure from this group. I'm pretty much here for aminute at least eveery day! I've learned alot from people on this site. The mods are Gods :D
In all, I think we are ALL very exceptional!
anyhoo - there ya go.

GO REDS!

She came to prominence in Cincinnati but was born and raised in Darke County just north of Greenville. There's a statue downtown, a museum largely dedicated to her, and an annual Annie Oakley Days celebration. She's bigger there than the treaty, even. ;)

Thanks all. I am a Steelers fan simply because my family made its last move to NC from Pittsburgh, and was raised wearing Steelers gear. But, when I was introduced to baseball by my dad, he encouraged me to find a team of my own (he was a Tigers fan), and I picked the Reds. So, I figure that is a stronger allegiance, as I picked my destiny there.

Well, I figured it's about time I officially introduced myself. :)

1. Are you a Reds Fan?

Nope. I pretty much came out of the womb with a Cubs hat on my head. There are pictures of me a few hours old with a baby-sized Cubs hat on.

Yes, I realized I was doomed from the get-go.

2. If so, what made you become a Reds Fan. If not, why are you on this forum?

It's really hard to find baseball forums that encourage both the atmosphere of this site and a diversity of views on everything in baseball. A lot of baseball fan sites out there are either madhouses or full of really stubborn and nasty people. However, this one avoids that quite nicely.

3. How did you learn about RedsZone?

This thread (http://www.northsidebaseball.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=8083) on NSBB.com, which is my primary haunt.

4. How old are you?

22

5. Where are you from?

North side of Chicago.

6. Do you drink or take drugs? If not, why are you a Reds fan?

Boo Lois, yay beer!

I refuse to answer the rest of those questions, although I do think Adam Dunn is one of the best offensive players of this generation. :D

Greetings and Salutations! Ive "lurked" here from time to time and in honor of the upcoming series this weekend, decided to join up. Im from Chicago and a die-hard White Sox fan, but I do cheer loudly for your Reds when they play the NL club up north. Im going to be in your town in the next 24 hours and will get my first look at your new ballpark. Havnt been to Cincinnati in quite some time, last time I was there, I visited with an ex Sox player who is from Cincy, that was fun, I'll have to write about it sometime for you guys.

I will post a question regarding GOOD BARS to go to walking distance of the park. I like cold beer, so hope you guys have good suggestions.
Thanks again

Well, I'm a HUGE Mets fan, surfed in from a Mets site actually called cranepoolforum.com

Anyway, I'm a huge baseball fan second and love all forums of baseball discussion, I'm even on Bill Lack's CintiRed listserv on the Miami of Ohio Listserv

I consider myself a Reds fan second. Not as big as a Met fan, but do consider the Reds my second favorite team.

Probably because I went to a Mets-Reds game in 1985 at Shea (I live in the New York City area) when I was an 8 year old little guy. I also have a fondness for baseball history, and kind of grew a fondness for the Big Red Machine of the 1970's, as they were the last NL team to have anything resembling a sustained dynasty untill the Braves

Seems like a good place for some good baseball chatter...

I've been a viewer here for over a year, but I have finally decided that I want to have some input. I am a 31 year old fan of the Reds. I started loving the Reds as an early teen when guys like Eric Davis and Barry Larkin were my heros. I am from the Louisville, KY area. Nice to meet all of you all. I have really enjoyed the things that you have added to my Reds experience in the last couple years and I hope that I can contribure a fraction of the knowledge that you have given to me. HELLO ALL!!!!

I went to my first reds game in 1965. I was 7 and I remember I had a popcorn box (that doubled as a megaphone) and I had it signed by a few of the reds. My dad said if we stood near the clubhouse I could get an autograph. I got Rose, Pinson, and a few others.

What really stands out in my mind was the trip to the game. We lived in Milford and the ballpark was on the west end so the trip took about 40 minutes (or long enough to want to pee) and my dad stopped the 57 chevywagon on I-75, opened both doors on the passenger side and said "GO", and I did. We parked by Union Terminal.

Hello. I'm rude. No really. I'm rude. It's my REAL name. Well, real last name.

Anyhoo, growing up my fondest Reds memories are sitting on the back porch with my Grandfather, eating ice cream and listening to Marty and Joe.

I was fortunate enough to enjoy many a game during the BRM era. I was there the night that Tony Perez became the all-time Reds leader in RBI's (since broken by Bench) and got his autograph after the game. I was there the night Johnny Bench hit his only pinch-hit home run. I remember being at a game where Pete Rose led off with a home run to left.

Other Reds memories: My Mom almost having a fingernail completely ripped off trying to snag a foul ball, getting written-up by an R.A. for making too much noise in college while I was listening to Ron Robinson almost pitch a no-hitter. Watching the Reds sweep the A's with my late Step-Father. Tearing up when Bench hit his home run on Johnny Bench night and raising his index finger to the crowd as he rounded the bases. Watching Sparky Anderson "talking" to the umps with his hands in his backpockets. Being nicknamed "Charlie Hustle" by the guys on my softball team because I play just like Pete did. Always wearing #5 when I play any sport (yes, I once gave a guy a case of beer just so I could have the number ala Mitch Williams and John Kruk).

I live down here in New Orleans (we're fine...very little damage to our property...we were fortunate) and listen to the games on XM Satellite Radio or watch them on MLB Gameplan.

Glad to be aboard.

Welcome. I remember those popcorn boxes that doubled as a megaphone (after you ate the popcorn;) ). I went to my first Reds game in 1965, too, only I was a 10 year old Cardinal fan then; I took a photo of Steve Carlton posing beside the dugout prior to the game. We also were at Union Terminal, because we rode the train from Huntington, WV to Cincinnati.

I live down here in New Orleans (we're fine...very little damage to our property...we were fortunate) and listen to the games on XM Satellite Radio or watch them on MLB Gameplan.

Tulane University, class of 2003. I loved living down in New Orleans, but I wish XM had been carrying the baseball games when I lived down there -- it would've made life so much easier!

Welcome Aboard! :wave:


Hello, Redszone. My name is Matt, and my Daddy has been a member here at Redszone for a long time. I have been bugging him to let me be a member. I love to play baseball and I play first base and bat fourth for my Little League All Star team. I love the Reds and like to read all about them here at Redszone. I watch them every time they are on TV with my dad when I am not playing games of my own.

I'm instantly cool with anyone named Matt. Best name ever, if you ask me. :thumbup:

Welcome to you well! (My father is an RZ member too, but he just lurks.) :wave:

Yes, it's mandatory. Also you need to answer the following quesitons:

1. Are you a Reds Fan?
2. If so, what made you become a Reds Fan. If not, why are you on this forum?
3. How did you learn about RedsZone?
4. How old are you?
5. Where are you from?
6. Do you drink or take drugs? If not, why are you a Reds fan?
7. Have you now or ever been a member of the communist party?
8. Do you know who the Gang of 10 are?
9. Are you now or have you ever been affliated with Richard Hand or Gallagher?
10. Do you wipe front to back or back to front?
11. Would you consider having your testicles (if you are male) cut off if it would guarentee a Reds World Championship?
12. Do you think Adam Dunn is overrated and strikes out too much?
13. Which Reds player would you most like to go on a double date with and why?
14. What do you think you can ad to RedsZone?
15. Do you think Jim Edmonds is a showboater?

I wanted to start a new thread introducing myself and "do it up right!", but this will do. I'm a medical salesman, living in Lexington. I've been married 2 1/2 years now (I'll post the pictures later), have two dogs (pictures to come later), love to play golf, and I'm enjoying seeing the Reds organization move in the right direction. My gut is telling me that this is not the year we make a splash, but it is coming soon. One more thing, I'm a Wildcat at heart. UK Basketball is my other sports passion. I'm sure some of you are the same, some may root for the Bearcats, others Dayton or Xavier, and others from all over the country. I look forward to posting here and can't wait to see our beloved Redlegs take home a pennant in the near future. The future of Cincinnati sports looks bright!

Now, on to the questions:

1. Yes
2. Marty and Joe. Listening to them calling summer ballgames while sitting on the back porch with my great grandpa. Like Cawood Ledford at UK, Marty is truly the best, and we didn't need TV at grandpa's. I have very fond memories of these times. Me and Grandpa on the back patio, sometimes listening to the rain hitting the aluminum awning, sipping grandma's lemonade with mint in it, eating a hot dog, swinging a bat or acting like i was pitching, imitating the radio. I could go on...
3. Can't recall. I've known about it, but never joined.
4. 25
5. Have lived in Lexington for about six years now. Originally from Northern Kentucky (Ludlow, Cold Spring, and Alexandria)
6. No drugs. I like have a beer at dinner out or golfing.
7. No.
8. No.
9. No.
10. Both
11. No. It'll happen. Our WS is more recent than anyone in the Central Division, so, we're good.
12. A resounding YES!
13. Austin Kearns. I played against him in high school (I even struck him out twice in one game, and have the box score to prove it). Just to talk about baseball, his trek up through the system, Lexington, high school ball, etc.
14. :bang: :mooner: :laugh: Who knows? My take on things.
15. No.

Hey people.

I've been here over a year and just have casually posted a thread here and there. Haven't been much of a regular poster. Just came in, and decided what a great community this is, so I believe I am going to post more often.

I am from Indiana, been a Reds fan my entire life, and have had friends drafted by the Reds.

I play semi-pro baseball in The Greater Cincinnati area, and am a memorabilia collector. Got anything you'd like to sell, CONTACT ME! :D

I am also an avid video game player (they need to make a great baseball game! ESPN Baseball sucks!), as I have a XBOX 360, and Nintendo DS Lite.

I am also big into pro wrestling, football, and computers (I work for Dell).

If you have any questions what so ever, or would just like to casually talk. PM me! Thanks! :thumbup:


1. Are you a Reds Fan?
yes

2. If so, what made you become a Reds Fan. If not, why are you on this forum?
1990 Reds World Series Win. It got me interested in baseball, and it became my passion, on and off the field throughout school, and even in College. Now, as I manage a Semi-Pro baseball team, it has become even more of a passion.

3. How did you learn about RedsZone?
From a friend.

4. How old are you?
23

5. Where are you from?
Southeastern, Indiana

6. Do you drink or take drugs? If not, why are you a Reds fan?
I drink beer occasionally. Not a HUGE drinker.

7. Have you now or ever been a member of the communist party?
No.

8. Do you know who the Gang of 10 are?
No.

9. Are you now or have you ever been affliated with Richard Hand or Gallagher?
No.

10. Do you wipe front to back or back to front?
Front to back.

11. Would you consider having your testicles (if you are male) cut off if it would guarentee a Reds World Championship?
No. Some things are just not sacrificable.

12. Do you think Adam Dunn is overrated and strikes out too much?
Nope. Strikes out a lot, but not over rated.

13. Which Reds player would you most like to go on a double date with and why?
Javier Valentin. Probably one of the most down to earth baseball players I have ever met. Not to mention, he's short, and I would feel like a monster towering over him.

14. What do you think you can ad to RedsZone?
My knowledge of the game from the 90's and current.

15. Do you think Jim Edmonds is a showboater?
Somewhat.

My goodness, I can't remember the last time I stopped by RedsZone, but it's been a while.

Some of you might remember me as KayJay, others as KAppaloosa....back a few years ago when Junior changed leagues and teams.

Guess what? All is copacetic with me :).

But I stopped by to put my 2c worth in about Eddie Guardado (in short, he's a real nailbiter pitcher these days). I hope he comes through, and actually HELPS the Reds get to the postseason. I know Junior would like that.

I'm also still following the Red Sox too -- most Red Sox fans think it's pretty ironic that Bronson Arroyo (whom the idiotic Tim McCarver STILL thinks is "Brandon" Arroyo) is a Reds All-Star...but they're really happy for him and glad he's switched leagues so successfully (they call him Saturn Balls).

I'll probably drop by again before the season ends, if all goes well...

Hi Guys,
I'm actually a Mets fan from New Jersey

<---------ducking :)

I'm not a flamer and not one of those "my team is better than yours" people.

I like to go onto other teams fan sites to have intelligent conversations with other teams fans and find out more about the team and how their fans perceive them. Hope I'm welcome here. I saw the Reds in NYC when they were there earlier this year and was very impressed with Phillips and Freel. I think the trade you guys made with the Nats will help you since there's no way you compete with the Cards without a solid bullpen. By the way, what's up with Freel? I checked the box scores for the Colorado series and noticed he hardly played, is he injured or in a slump?

Hey all Reds Fans,
I just wanted to introduce myself and say I have been reading forever. I was raised in SE Ky where my Dad was a die hard Reds fan and took us to the games since my sis lives in N Ky. I now live in Northeast Tn and watch the Reds on Fox but have been to a few games in the last few years. I also am a Cubs Fan (bless my heart), somebody has to pull for the underdogs, lol.
I sure hope the Reds can hang on and get that wild card berth. Oh yeah, I saw the Big Red Machine many many times and even at my age, a nana here, I will always love Johnny Bench, Tony Perez and even Pete. A big Red hello to all.

Hello Redleg 39. This is my first time here at this REDSFANSITE and Im thrilled to be here. I too live in Columbus, but I grew up in Cincinnati. My first Reds game was at Crosley Field in 1969, when we played the NY Mets. I was 7 years old. My Dad worked at WLW from 1969 thru 1976. He was the chief producer at the station. Ive got promos of Johnny Bench and Pete Rose doing Terrace Hilton commercials, on reel to reel tape. This is the first year since 1989, that I have actively pursued and cared about watching the games again. Seems like we have a team that is only going to improve and be a regular contender again. Its fun to watch REDS BASEBALL AGAIN!!!! LOVE IT. Take care all my Reds Brethren. Thanks. Charlie.

OK, that side jaunt through the world of sports cliches aside, I am glad to be here and look forward to talking Reds baseball with you folks. I grew up in Warsaw, Ky., listening to Marty and Joe on the radio. Lived for a few years in Covington before relocating south on I-75 to London, Ky. Fortunately, the Reds are on the radio every game and on TV most games, so I can still keep up with the team. I work for a small newspaper in SEKy, and my weekly column is frequently about the Reds.

Yes, it's mandatory. Also you need to answer the following quesitons:

1. Are you a Reds Fan?
2. If so, what made you become a Reds Fan. If not, why are you on this forum?
3. How did you learn about RedsZone?
4. How old are you?
5. Where are you from?
6. Do you drink or take drugs? If not, why are you a Reds fan?
7. Have you now or ever been a member of the communist party?
8. Do you know who the Gang of 10 are?
9. Are you now or have you ever been affliated with Richard Hand or Gallagher?
10. Do you wipe front to back or back to front?
11. Would you consider having your testicles (if you are male) cut off if it would guarentee a Reds World Championship?
12. Do you think Adam Dunn is overrated and strikes out too much?
13. Which Reds player would you most like to go on a double date with and why?
14. What do you think you can add to RedsZone?
15. Do you think Jim Edmonds is a showboater?


Sheesh, I've been posting over on the RedsLive part of the site, and didn't even realize this was here- how rude of me!

1. born and bred a Reds fan. My earliest memories as a kid were going to Crosley with my dad, coming in through the left field gate to the brightest, most wonderful shade of green I had ever seen. We'd sit down by the third base walkway, where the players would come out onto the field, and try to get autographs. My dad pointed out Wille Mays to me once, and told me to pay attention to him, he was the best player in baseball. Apparently, Dad was not as impressed as I was with Alex Johnson.

2. I came across Redzone as a part of checking daily Reds blogs of other folks opinion on the Reds, and was amazed to find that there were other people who actually shared my angst and agony on a daily basis. I had come to hide my Reds habit over the years, as the past 15 or so years have not been kind to us Reds fans. I had been reduced to changing the Reds game on the channel when my wife and kids entered the room, because of the shame, like I was watching a porno or something. This support group has given me the courage to walk openly, in the daylight, and not be afraid to show some, any public interest at all in the Redlegs.

3. I'm 45. I was 9 years old in 1970, and from then until the age of 19 just kind of assumed that every city had an awesome baseball team. I realize now, in my maturity, that I will never see those likes again, sadly.

4, 5. I am from the west side of the tracks, and definitely drink too much beer, although I can no longer find Hudy or Burger anywhere. I firmly believe that ballpark food should be limited to pop, beer, peanuts, hot dogs, popcorn (but only in the carton that you can use as a megaphone), ice cream, and hamburgers. No fish tacos. Cotton candy is ok for kids.

7. Never been a communist, but ironically, am red through and through. With a littel bit of orange in the fall and winter.

11.Testicles? Sorry, but I'm all out. Gave one back in 1975 to get the first WS win in my lifetime, gave the 2nd in 1990 because I thought I'd never see another here in Cincinnati after the BRM days.

I currently have 2 kidneys left, however. Am willing to donate for Fall Classic wins.:beerme:

12. Dunner? Love him. Hate him. But love him more than I hate him. We have an agreement: he can continue to strike out 190 times a year, as long as he continues to get on base 40% of the time. We've reached a happy medium with that compromise, and are very happy together.

15 "Edmonds" are on sale during the Cardinals series for $1, as I hear it.:barf:

Yo! So I've been registered here once before but had my account deleted for inactivity - I'll make sure that doesn't happen this time around. Yeah, I've been a Reds fan all my life and fortunately can remember being so excited at the ripe age of 6 that my team had just won the World Series. Geez, at 6, you begin to think it happens every year. Oh, how wrong I was! Anyways, I live in Sarasota where no, unfortunately I don't support the farm as much as I should. For some sick reason, I'd rather drive up the road and watch my adopted American League team. Thank God I shouldn't have to worry about the Reds and the Rays meeting up in the WS one day.

Anyhoo, I love reading here... but I'm gonna try to post a bit more often. This stretch run should be pretty exciting! GO REDS!

Here is my salvation experience:

Grew up in the South and was a huge Braves fan.(Living in horrible sin)

Moved to Ohio during my growing up years and had to put up with all these annoying Reds fans who lived in the past and worshipped Pete Rose. That just turned me off. Plus the mascot -- Reds? -- what kind of mascot is that i thought.(Living in rebellion to the light)

Went to college back down South and delivered Pizza's every night. The only baseball station i could get was 700wlw; I discovered this station in 1999. When the Reds won 10 in a row and swept the Diamondbacks in Arizona I was converted to the Reds.(Hallelujah)

Marty and Joe were the main reasons for my salvation. I have never regretted my decision and now I hate the Braves.

I believe.

Hello fellow Reds fans! Look forward to talking baseball with all of you.

And man I hope we stay in this race and get in the playoffs. Would make my year.

I'm 30, married, no kids... and have been a DIEHARD Reds fan for as long as I can remember. I grew up watching them on TV in Dayton and loved Johnny Bench because of the TV show Baseball Bunch, even though he was at the end of his career and wasn't good anymore. First Reds game was 1983 against the Braves at Riverfront. Dale Murphy was the star of the league, but Gary Redus (who led the Reds with 17 HRs in '83) beat Murphy in a pre-game home run derby. I kid you not! The Braves won the game thanks in part to a HR from Glen Hubbard, a little 2B with very little power. I will never forget that. My Dad and I sat in Yellow seats.

I don't make it down to very many games anymore (only 2 this year) but I watch every game on TV and listen to the radio when they are not on TV. Completely obsessed.

Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself......

My name is Scott, 37, from Middletown and I am a lifelong Reds fan. IT seems odd but I havent bothered looking for a Reds MB before now because have been busy helping out at our Bengals message board for the past 3 years. We do have a MLB section there so thats where I have spent my time discussing our Reds. Not too much action there seeing as our members there are only concerned about Bengals football and thats fine.......I just need some more baseball interaction with people :) So I googled (excusing myself after the fact) and found this site. I'm THRILLED to have found it and kind of mad that I havent made the effort before now.

Our Bengals MB is also vbulletin so I am very familiar with how this works. I do have one question however........how do i get a sig on here since the IMG code is turned off? If you could help me with that, I sure would appreciate it.

Anyways....I look forward to talking Reds baseball with all of you and hope we can bounce back tonight after that tragic loss last evening.

also....if you are a Bengals fan, I invite you over to our MB. www.cincybengals.com

Great to be here,
Scott Palmer

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first (almost) time poster...

You can kind of tell the story from the user name. I grew up and went to college in the more urbane regions of Butler and Warren Counties. (Folks at Miami were almost impressed that I used to live in Millville, since they knew it as the town on the way to Cincy that had the Vend-a-Bait machine!)

Moved to Chicago after school, and have been there (pretty much) ever since. Like many of you, I'm a big Reds, Bengals, Buckeyes, etc. fan, and I try to keep the faith from afar. It's a little hard with the sanctimonious Cubs fans and the low-class Sox fans, but years like this help. And thank God for the Internet and XM Radio!

The knowledge level on this site is fantastic, by the way, and I usually learn something here every day. (By the way, I'm not on there tonight, but the Chat feature during games is a lot of fun - and I kind of like the real-time aspect of it more than the game threads. Highly recommended....)

I need to get back to the game, but I just wanted to finally say hi, and hopefully I'll take the time to post a little more in the future.

Jefferson24 here,

I've been a Reds fan since I was 8 or so. Became a Reds fan by watching Bench play at the tail end of his career. My favorite player was J. Bench. I'm 34. I found Redzone by searching for Reds forums. I work with a bunch of Card and Cub fans so I need some reasonable people to visit with. I live in Illinois, about 6 hours from Cincy. I've only made it to one game this year in Cincy. The Reds lost to the Cubs by a run. Griffey grounded out with the bases loaded and the Reds down by a run. It was a good game though, it turned my All Star 9 year old pitcher/ss into a Reds fan. I'm also a Little League coach and LL Board member. Really hoping this can be a turning point season for the Reds.

Hello fellow Reds fans. I am a lifer. As long as I can remember baseball I have been a Reds fan the first little league team I played on was the West Jefferson Reds.
I grew up watching
the Reds on an affiliate station out of Winston Salem NC. They still clam part of WS as blackout territory and late at night I could pickup WLW on my transistor radio. Rose,Bench,Concepion,Foster,Prez they were all my hero's. I love them as much today as I did then.
This season is the most fun I have had watching baseball in a long time thanks to Mr. Catellini and Wayne. Atleast they are trying to make the season meaningful for the Red's nation.
And Pete belongs in the hall.

Hello,

I'm a 17 year old Reds fan from Indianapolis. Since I am in the heart of basketball country, I grew up in a basketball family surrounded by basketball friends. But as much as I love the Hoosiers, basketball just wasn't the sport for me. In 1995, I was given my first pack of baseball cards as a gift. They were a pack of 1994 Topps Gold. I knew nothing about baseball at the time, so I asked my dad, a part-time Cubs fan because of of Chicago roots, if I had pulled any notable cards out of the pack. He recognized just one player: Barry Larkin (keep in mind, this was fall of 1995. Otherwise, he probably wouldn't have recognized anybody because the next biggest name in the pack was Travis Fryman.) Because the only baseball player I knew was Barry Larkin, and also because the Indianapolis Indians were the AAA affiliate of the Reds at the time, I started following Cincinnati.

It grew from a casual hobby to an obsession. By the time I was 9, I could name every player on the Reds active roster. I started collecting baseball cards and of my collection of about 15,000, about 1/5 of them are Cincinnati Reds players and about half of those Reds cards are Barry Larkin cards. My elementary school teachers all knew me as the Reds fan. I would somehow involve the Reds into every school paper that I had to write.

In 1999, I made it to my first Reds game. My dad and I drove down to Cinergy Field to see the Reds take on the Cardinals late in the season. I don't remember much from the game, but I do remember Greg Vaughn hitting a pretty impressive homerun off of the hitters background they had out in center field.

I started going to one or two games a year. I skipped school in eighth grade to be at opening day at GABP. I also started trying to get my parents to plan our family vacations around the Reds schedule (it has worked...sort of. I've seen them play in Milwaukee, Chicago, and Florida :) )

By now, the obsession has cooled down slightly. I've stopped collecting baseball cards and I no longer try to memorize statistics or useless tidbits of information about the Reds, but I do still try to catch the game every time they're on TV and I still skip school occasionally to go down to games (mainly in May).

I found this website quite a while ago, and I joined about a year ago, but I believe that this is my first post here. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself to the community.

Hello friends ... a newcomer here, a lifelong Redlegs fan who low lives in the heart of Redbird country. I look forward to talking some Reds baseball.

The offseason has been so far, so good IMO ... the Gonzalez and Stanton pickups and LaRue trade seem to make sense ... but like everybody else I'm curious to see if we're gonna see a team-altering deal like a swap of Dunn or Griffey. Me, I wouldn't mind trading either one if it would bring a top-of-the-line starter or closer or a more balanced lineup (more speed and fewer strikeouts).

Krivsky was his usual noncommital self on the air with Marty tonight.

Hi I am new here and enjoy reading the threads of your web site and thought I would take time out to introduce myself. I am a big baseball fan and subscibe to Directv baseball package so I can watch as many of the teams as I can. I cant say that I am a fan of any team but I am also not a frontrunner or a phoney fan. I enjoy talking baseball with knowledgable people and hope to get good opinions from them. I also enjoy minor league baseball and try to attend as many games as possible (I have alot of minor league teams in my area). My wife and I are planning to visit Cincinatti and Great American Ballpark as it is one of the ball parks we have yet been to.

As for Adam Dunn I dont think the Reds should trade him just yet. His trade value is to low and I think his best years are still to come.

I also seen and like Homer Bailey and Joey Votto. Both players show alot of promise and could be stars in the very short future and would hope the Reds Organization will do everything they can to hang on to these 2.

Well I look forward to future chats with you and hope you guys accept me as part of your Discussion Board.

Hey.

I'm a defector from the ESPN boards. I love talking about the Reds and had been posting there for six years. I was registered here, but this sight seemed fairly complicated compared to that one, and I wanted to talk about the Bengals and other teams seamlessly, but they banned me like a million times. I finally got sick of it, and decided to try and figure out this website with all the "bells and whistles". It may take me a while.

Hopefully someone will recognize me from those boards and say hi.

Life long, out-of-state Reds fan here. In 8th grade ('81-82) I used to have the Cincinnati Enquirer mailed to my house just to read about the Reds a few days late. Spent many a Summer night trying to get WLW in on my radio while hiding it under my covers. Later in life, flew out to Ohio to see the Reds with my sons, who followed their Pops and became fans too. So, I guess I am a pretty big fan.

In the early days of the Internet, Prodigy, then AOL, I used to post a lot on many different sports boards. I don't really have the time or energy to do it anymore, but did from time to time get over to the AOL boards to read what other fans had to say. I enjoyed reading alot of it, but rarely posted.

Now, I see, that board is completely dead. When I say dead, I mean like ZERO posts. I mean even the most obscuriest team or subject usually has a post or two. But zero?

Anyway, desperate for Reds info I found my way here. Don't know how much I can offer, but hopefully I can get some good info and insights from you regulars. :)

Eventually found my way over here from the Bucknuts board.

Reds' lore was engrained in my skull from the time I was born. My dad used to take the train to Crosley with my Grandpa, and I still have the scorecard from my Grandpa's first game at Crosley in 1935. I used to tag along with my dad and his buddies when a ticket was open. My first "real" memories of a Reds game are from a Dodgers-Reds affair in the 80's when the hated Pedro Guerrero hit a home run...though I have ticket stubs from earlier games. My dad still talks about Crosley and his love for that field. He attended the first game at Riverfront, and is a lifelong fan.

Hello Reds fans. I'm a native of Cincinnati and lifelong Reds fan. I can't believe I just found this site. I look forward to talking Redlegs baseball with you guys/gals this summer. Won't be long before we hear the best four words in all of sports......"pitchers and catchers report." :thumbup:

Hello everybody. I've been lurking around here for roughly 2 months or so and I figured I might as well make my first post introducing myself.

I found this site through a Bengals site I visit (go-bengals.com) and I really value the intelligent opinions on this board and the extensive use of stats to proove/disproove points.

Keep up all the great work fellas... I really appreciate the insight!

I recently joined and have enjoyed lurking about. I figured it was time for me to officially post in honor of pitchers and catchers reporting.

I grew up in Dayton during the era of the Big Red Machine and have been a fan ever since, especially this time of year; you never know what the new season is going to bring.

Hi, everyone. Just registered here. I live in Indianapolis,IN. Grew up in Toledo. I am in fact a Phillies fan. grew up in the 70's when the Phillies had powder blue, Carlton, Rose, Schmidt.

Came over here from a link at Philliesphans.com to a discussion about Dunn/Burrell/Schmidt. Found your discussion interesting, so thought I'd throw in my two cents.

I am a big believer that baseball is a game unique in that alomst everything about the game can be quantified. Players can be evaluated via statistics moreso than any mainstream American sport. But then there is even more! Love baseball.

In many ways the Phillies and Reds are similair teams. Look foward to many good discussions about baseball here.

Anyways, I'm not here to troll, just have intelligent baseball discussions.

Welcome aboard! Those Phillie teams of the late 70's were really good. They just had to buy a few from the Big Red Machine to put them over the top in 1980.
Actually it was 1983 that they had three from the BRM,Rose,Morgan and Perez. Thanks to retrosheet it keeps me from relying too much on my memory.

Just yesterday I found out that Danny Ozark was quite the war hero.


He served at Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and in Germany. He was wounded in his knee and received a Purple Heart and five battle stars.

I really like the Phillies this year - Garcia was a big add. The Mets will be tough though.

Well not to mention they had Dayton's Mike Schmidt (college Ohio Univ. Athens) and Cincinnati's own Len Matuszek played some games that season too. They also had three future Reds: Bo Diaz, Juan Samuel and John Denny.

Good to have you aboard. We grew up watching the Phils in the same era (though I caught BRM fever in 1972, so I never rooted for the Phillies).

It can't be easy having the view of the game you do and being a Phillies fan. I get to hear riffs on how Bob Abreu secretly sucks from my relatives and I can only imagine how that topic has played out in the larger Philadelphia fan base.

Hello, I'm new to Redszone today. I've been reading for months at work, but just had the time to register today. I've been a Reds fan my whole life. God knows why, with the exception of 1990 I haven't had too much to cheer for. I have an incurable hope every spring that is only crushed by July most years. Last year broke my heart. My wife and I sprung for the "rest of the season" ticket package in August last year and sat in the moon deck for all the games down the stretch. We suffered through Griffey's injury and Dunn's slump. My then 2 year old and I were there they day Griffey hit the pinch hit homer. I was the only person I know that held out real hope until that last weekend. For some reason, I always let myself believe the Reds can do it. What can I say, I'm a fan.

I'm Sonny. Been here a while but haven't made formal introductions. I'm 29, and twin brother of smith288 who has about a kagillion posts. he even gave me rep points out of pity. what a guy!

In any event. I'm married and have a 18 month old son who is already throwing a baseball (and keeping it down, might I add). We're expecting a girl in July and could not be happier. I have very limited athletic talent, so I was expecting O'brien to sign me.

It may FEEL like you're the only one, but believe me, you are not. We're all there with you 'til the bitter end. I've seen 1975, 1976, and 1990 ... there's always hope...especially at this time of year. :beerme:
