Hello all,

I'm a Cards fan. Have been reading your message boards since 2000 when the Ken Griffey Jr. signing was announced. You have a great bunch of guys here. Knowledgable and erudite fans. I've finally registered because it looks like the Cards and Reds are going down to the wire this season and I just can't get enough baseball talk when the division race is this heated.

Looks like you have a very good young team here. Looking forward to the next two games and the rest of the season series.

Welcome aboard redhat,you are more than welcome to come and talk with us on our site.I just got threw watching tonight's game and it was a must win imo b/c of Carpender tomarrow.I really hope the Reds can keep this going and give the Cards a run for the division.LOL us on top of the division or close to it is something I woas'nt expecting at all but im having a blast so far.It has been way to long for us to see our beloved reds acually having a good team that is fun to watch.I look forward to watching the Reds and Cards do battle for the division this year.

I don't know how you guys do it but every year the Cards have an outstanding team that is very very tough to beat.I guess thats what happens when you have great players,coachs and a manager that knows how to win.

Hi, I'm a lifelong Reds fan. Have been following them since I was a teen, my birth year is not correct in my profile (shielding my identity because of ongoing divorce litigation). I first saw the Reds play sometime in the late 1980's when Eric Davis was there.

My uncle was the one that got me into the Reds, and now HE doesn't follow the game anymore. He says it's because of the lockouts and all the money in the game, which I can understand. It's a shame, really, because I know the Reds club so much better than he does, it's just sad to see a fan drop completely out of it like he did. :(

At any rate I am enjoying this year's bunch of guys, and I think they are better than the '99 bunch that got beat in that 1-game playoff against the Mets. I have gotten back into the OOTP computer baseball game, due to some inspiration from the guys here at Redszone (using all that metric jargon which I don't really fully understand). I'm hoping to put together a good team some time in OOTP by using stats other than .AVG and RBI. :thumbup:

Hi, Reds fan from Dayton here.

Attended first game in person in 1985 with my Grandpa. He's sick and in hospice at the Dayton VA now, but we talk about the Reds every day.

I was at the 76 WS in my Mom's belly. I was at game 2 of the 1990 WS as a 13 year old, green seats right behind home plate when Oliver knocked in the winning run.

I was at the 99 one game playoff in the yellow seats in RF. I hate Al Leiter. Bought a ticket and went by myself, I had just started my first job that year after college at Ohio University.

I go to 5-10 Reds games and 5-10 Dragons games with my wife/kids/guys from work.

Any time I travel for work I try and schedule it to catch an out of town game. I've seen games at:

Tiger Stadium
Wrigley Field
Shea Stadium
Comerica Park
Old Comiskey
Turner Field
Jacob's Field
The BallPark at Arlington

I read the Major/Minor League boxscores every night. I like Twitter for baseball content only. I play Diamond Mind PC baseball and Action PC baseball.

I work in Mason as a Director selling technology solutions. Cisco/HP networking.
Nice to be here. Found site through a Google search I believe.

Is it too late to introduce myself? I joined this forum a week ago. I won't bore you guys with a biography of me, exept to say that my folks lived and died with baseball.

Mom an insane Cub fan that after brushing my hair would read me bedtime stories of Ty Cobb, Mathewson and Hack Wilson instead of the Brothers Grimm.

Daddy, from St. Louis would not speak to anyone after a Cardinal loss. (we spoke very little in the '70s) The only thing they had in common was an intense hatred of the A.L. and ALL things Yankee.

To this day I have never watched an A.L. game, and I cannot stomach another ASG!

I hope to add something to the Redzone. I'm a little exited to finally see a pennant race not involving the damn Astro's or sCRUBs, and the recent meltdown of the great Philly team has me giddy!

I guess that's all. Thanx for reading.;)

I'm not sure if I've posted here or not and am not about to go through 51 pages to find out.

Anyway, my name is John, I'm 68 and have been a Reds fan since the late 1940's. I've even seen several games at Crosley Field. I'm retired and watch every game on TV except for some of the ones on the West Coast. Us old guys need our sleep.(lol)

In my old age, I'm kind of laid back and don't get upset when they lose and don't jump up and down when they win. To me, it's just a game and someone wins and someone loses.

I visit this site daily and you can tell that I don't post very much but I'm a Reds fan for life.

Welcome all, you'll find this site to be quite informative, fun and interesting. I am not a big message board guy but this is one I have visited nearly every day since I joined, it just never loses it's luster for me and that is due to the quantity and quality of the posters here. But be prepared to have your baseball knowledge challenged at times, hopefully you all are up for that because you will here. Again welcome :thumbup:

Hey guys...

Well I don't really know what to say but I'll give it a shot! Well I'm Ryan and I am 19 years old and I've lived in Lima/Elida (Ohio for those non-Ohioan fans) my whole life. I've followed baseball since I can remember but I didn't get into it until about 4 years ago back when it was Todd Coffey as the main relief man and the same main relief man who blew just about every game he pitched in, but that's besides the point.

Anyway, I'm an all around sports guy but I don't care much for NBA. Hockey is my main sport and I've been playing it for 15 years now. Hmm well I am a Christian. I don't really like to carry a denomination, I just strive to be more like Jesus Christ. I'm going to school in the backwoods of northeast Wisconsin to Northland International University majoring in Biblical Counseling.

Lastly for now, I'm excited to finally join what it seems to be a very solid, energetic Reds board. Hopefully GM Walt can put together a nice looking bullpen because even though it has struggled of late, the offense will come around and I truly think, no bias involved, that this Reds club could do some damage if they were to squeak in the playoffs. This isn't the NBA; MLB postseason is too unpredictable for the most part.

Hey Guys, I'm Nick. I'm twenty years old and I live between Dayton and Cincinnati, in a small town called Springboro. I have been browsing on this great site for about a month now and finally decide to join. I am entering my sophomore year at Bowling Green State University and currently majoring in Journalism. I am a huge Reds, Bengals, and UD Flyers fan. Like you all, I love sports and can't get enough of Summer baseball and football in the fall. On top of sports, I'm a Christian and I like to work out and read in my spare time. We got something going here and I'm glad to be a part of it and share it with my fellow Reds fans!

Well, I thought I'd stop by to say hi! I am a long-time Chicago sports fan in the order mentioned in my signature. I came to create this alliance with you so that both of our fanbases can help each other out getting our guys into the all star game!

I think this site looks nice! How wicked would it be if we somehow made it against each other in the World Series (right now, we're only 1 game back in our division). I know FOX would hate it, but who really cares about them anyways? I'm so glad that your guys are holding down the Cubs real good...I am a lifelong Chicago southsider who might hate them even more than you guys (because I have to actually deal with them every day...it can cause one to scream).

Good luck the rest of the season, and hope that you make the postseason!

Hello everyone! I have been a big fan of this message board for some time and have even registered under a couple different names in attempts to post...I finally read the "about us" section and am finally aware of why I couldn't post. Good job in keeping the site productive and useful!

I am from Ohio and am a very big fan. I'm about 2-3 hours away from the stadium and try to make it to about 6-8 games a year. Joey Votto is my favorite player. Last year, I went to a game and I had my 5 year old son with me. We had tremendous seats and we were just watching batting practice in awe when Joey came walking toward us. We wasn't yelling for him or standing in the autograph area, but he stopped, signed a ball, and handed it to my son. He immediatly became my favorite player.

Go Reds!

As a rookie I'm ready to carry some bat bags, serve beer on the team plane or whatever it is the vets ask to be accepted. A lifelong Reds fan, I attended Game 1 of the 1990 World Series, Tom Browning's Perfect Game and many other memorable games. After viewing the site and reading numerous posts I decided to join and offer my two cents. I look forward to the thoughtful discussion and appreciate what the originators of the site have done.
Go Reds!

Hello everyone. I lived in Cincinnati for 34 years until moving to Tampa last year. I still religiously follow my Reds thanks to MLB E.I. and social media.

The main thing I miss is LaRosa's and Grippo's BBQ chips. Oddly enough, there is a Skyline Chili about 5 miles from me. It's fully decked out in Cincinnati area pro/college/high school apparel. Pretty cool. :)

Hi, I am also a UK fan and a member over on a UK fan site (True Blue Kentucky) recommended this site for Reds talk. I've been a Reds fan ever since I moved here in 2006! I know it isn't that long of a time but I love watching the Reds and now is a great time to jump on the bandwagon (and never get off).

I am glad to have finally signed on. I registered a couple of years ago but the website had issues that day so I never tried again until now.

I have been a Reds fan since 1975. Don't give up on winning the division this year. Maybe the butt kicking at the first of the week was what we needed. Also the Reds just happened to go against the Cardinals best pitchers, their 4 and 5 aren't nearly as good. There is a reason they can't pull away and we can't either.

Hello world. I am Reds fan. I'm too young to remember the Big Red Machine, but I got to see such "greats" as Mike Ivy, Dan Billardello, Paul Householder and Tom Lawless play as I was growing up in Reds' Country. I'm praying for October baseball...this is the best August of the century, and as McDonalds likes to say "I'm lovin' it".

Hello All,

My name is Tim and I have also visited this board for a long time and finally decided to sign-up. There are always great opinions and comments on here, hopefully I can add something to the discussion. I've spent four seasons working in baseball (between Nationals and Reds) so I may have a different perspective which may be interesting to some.

I am also one of the people behind Green Diamond Gallery, the baseball museum in Montgomery. If you haven't heard of us take a look at our website, we have some amazing baseball history here and it is worth checking out!

Thanks for welcoming me to the board! Go Reds!

Mostly Marketing and PR/Community Relations (which is under one department in Washington)...

Now I'm working more with the history of the game, as I spent my last year with Reds in the Reds Hall of Fame (an awesome museum...if you haven't been there, GO next time you're at the ballpark) and now with Green Diamond Gallery.

A lot of fun being around the game! All great experiences!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Alex and I live in Chicago. I lived most my life in Cincinnati after moving here about 3 years ago. I am a die hard Reds fan. My dad had season tickets from when I was about 4 years old to just 3 years ago (after us kids grew up and no longer could attend games). He still goes to about 10 games a year and I plan to go to atleast a couple when I am down in Cincy.

As far as Cincinnati sports goes, it doesn't get better than the Reds. The summer, the ballpark, and the fact there are just so many games to go to. I have always looked for some hardcore Reds discussion with intelligent fans, which led me here. With the Reds being serious contenders this year, it seems like over half of my brain activity has been going to them (to the chagrin of my girlfriend). Hopefully I will meet some other great Reds fans here and we can share our ideas!

Go Reds!!

I've been a Reds fan my entire life, almost 30 years now. I grew up in Indiana on the Ohio River a little over an hour from Cincy. as my screen name would suggest I now live in Tennessee. luckily for me Fox Sports airs mostly Reds games. :thumbup:

I've checked out the forum in the past but for about a month now have followed more closely. it's good to see the Reds doing well again. here's to continued success and a great September! :beerme:

Hello!
Very long time troller and first time poster!
Been a Reds fan all my life...my first recollection of watching them play was the 1979 playoffs against the Pirates when I was 6 years old.

I live north of Fort Wayne Indiana and go to a couple games a year and have ever since 1980. Fortunately my mother is a Reds fan and didn't become a Cubs fan like the rest of her family so I naturally became a Reds fanatic!

Also am a season ticket holder for the Colts (but still like the Bengals too).

It was a great one for me. I was there when it happened. Although I was underneath the stadium getting ready to go onto the field for Banner Day. I've posted about it on here before. Probably mentioned it too much.
Me and my family set out in LF in the green seats,1st row. It was one of the best days of my childhood. Davey Lopes hit a HR early in that first game. I have that ball. It came straight us in LF. It hit off my oldest brothers hands and landed in my brother-in-laws lap. Being the little punk kid brother they gave me ball and I still have it.

Hi all, another Lexington Reds fan, followed the Big Red Machine from 1975 to early 80's, boycotted baseball after the WS was cancelled, began following the Reds again around 2006 thanks to the Fox Sports Ohio broadcasts. I've always been interested in the statistical analysis of baseball and participated on the old Strategy & Sabermetrics website with Tom Tango, MGL, Voros and others 10 or 12 years ago, no major contributions other than to convince several of them that replacement level, not league average, was the correct baseline for measuring player value. This was not my invention, I just argued effectively; only time in my life I can remember actually convincing someone to change their mind!

New poster here, excited to join the site. I've been a Reds fan for a long time. Kind of nervous being the new guy here as I see some have been here for a while. This is just the kind of site I've been looking for to talk Reds baseball.

Welcome!

Hey all.

I joined the site last August, but I've lurked since then. Finally decided to start posting in the middle of this trainwreck of a season.

I'm from Indianapolis and all of my Fraternity brothers when I was in college gave me hell (Cubs and Cards fans). Love lurking both the ORG and the Sun Deck... so, I'm gonna start putting in my 2 cents.

Fan since 1975, like many others, and found this while trying to find out why Pat Corrales was ejected today.

My first name is Doriano, first generation Italian immigrant, and look forward to enjoying my "membership".

Not really "new" here, but I have read the forum since its inception in 1999 and remember well all the vitriol on the cincinnati.com forum when the Griffey trade rumors were so intense. Hard to believe that was 12 years ago. I used to post (here and on cincinnati.com) under the moniker of Wade Rowdon, but my login information for that account has been lost for many years. The recent trades have me thinking that this is the best Reds team we've seen in many years, and so I thought this an opportune time to rejoin as a poster. Looking forward to it!

I run two storefronts now, one being Los Rios Group which I guess is pretty well known. Im not to happy with its level of quality right now and i need to update the writeups. My other is Gemballa Avionic Development, its a brand new store and at the moment offers four products. I will expand it but slowly, as it takes time to get the high level of quality I would like in my products

Id also like some help designing some of my new products for the second store.

I'm new to the site, joined yesterday. I'll be 30 this year and I grew up about 60 miles east of Cincinnati and have been a Reds fan most of my life. I still have a bit of family around the Cincinnati area but I live in Los Angeles. I married into a closet Reds family as my late father in law had a signed Pete Rose bat and ball I didn't know about until after his passing (currently hanging on the wall in my office next to a 1978 Big Red Machine pennant a co-worker gave to me when he found out I was a Reds fan).

I follow the team as much as I can and watch every game I can via MLB.tv. Looking forward to seeing the Reds play the Dodgers and the Padres when they make the journey west.

Yeah, my wife and her family are big Dodger fans (my father-in-law was really an all around baseball fan and remembered hating the Reds being a Dodger fan in the 70's but still had respect for the team).

Dodger Stadium is pretty cool, but I'd take GABP anyday. :-)

Hi. I was searching for a site like this, and this one seems to be very well-run, clean, and respectful. Thank you for that! I actually am not a Reds fan; I'm a Pirates fan. But, I have a lot of respect for the Reds. Mostly, I was curious what fans of other teams were saying about the Pirates this year. I found a couple of threads where some of your board members posted some things about the Pirates, and I was surprised at how favorably you view them. I'm cautiously optomistic about them, personally. But, more than that, I was really surprised by how well some of you knew the Pirates system. I'd say that the posts that I read knew more about the Pirates minor leagues than most casual Bucs fans I know (not many, as I live in Iowa).

Anyway, I'm hoping to casually visit this board and get a read on what's going on in the Reds neck of the woods. I'm thrilled to be in a pennant race with you all, and I wish your team the best of luck the rest of the year. The second half should be a lot of fun!

Hello everyone! Just found this forum. I'm a Reds fan who grew up in the UK but my mum is from Cincinnati so went to games every summer (had to tell this to a zillion people in the past week).

I didn't realize the Reds were in CA all week until last weekend. Happened to be in SF... 9 days later I've been to 7 games.

Anyone know where I could let people know about a first row ticket in the Sony Club I have for the Padres vs. Reds game tomorrow? It's in the section next to the Reds dugout... so I think it would be pretty good experience. Willing to part with it for a fraction of what I paid, i.e. would love to be able to cover the cost of gas to/from SD from LA if possible.

Greetings, Reds Zone!

Lifelong Giants fan here! I found this message board during the nail-biting NLDS series last week and have been quietly lurking since then (hearing the perspective of other team's fans is fascinating to me and I feel it adds to the overall experience of enjoying sports). With our historic series to discuss, along with a few other mutual issues - such as your newly extended manager, the great Dusty Baker - I figured I'd sign up in hopes of engaging in some intelligent baseball dialogue! Although our two teams don't typically cross paths with much regularity, the strong, informed opinions of this place have inspired me to join the fray. Here's hoping for some stimulating debate in the coming days!

Right off the bat, I'd simply like to start off by saying great series, fellas! Certainly must-see baseball at it's finest and while SF may have come out on top this time, the dichotomy of the Red's potent lineup versus the Giant's homegrown pitching looks like it could be a fantastic playoff rivalry for years to come! The parallels of these teams are also pretty provocative; I can relate to many of your frustrations with the recent struggles for a young stud like Drew Stubbs (Tim Lincecum has given our fan base equal fits). I'm also hoping for a speedy full recovery to your MVP candidate, Mr. Votto. We Giants fans were blessed with a miraculous comeback by Buster Posey this year and the results have been wonderful to watch! I'd also love to jump in on your guy's Dusty Baker thread on the main forum, when and if I gain posting priviledges there.

Anyways, this intro has been longer than I anticipated, so I'll go ahead and hit submit before I keep rambling like a mad man. Hope to hear your perspectives soon!

Cheers!

- Jonster

I've been posting here for at least a couple weeks to a month now. But to introduce myself more formerly, I am ProfessorTofty, first name George. The username is a gag related to an obscure Harry Potter character. I live in Dayton, Ohio and am also avid follower of the Reds local A team Dayton Dragons, which currently holds the professional sports record for most consecutive sell-out games. I also enjoy the video games Eternal Sonata and Final Fantasy (just to be clear on the latter - the FF franchise in general) and I work part time at a library and I also do online sales.

Since I mentioned I work at a library, I might as well share some of my favorite books. Those include the Harry Potter series (duh), The Hitchhiker's Guide books, the Bartimaeus Trilogy and the Mysterious Benedict society books, to name just a few.

If anyone else enjoys any of this stuff I mentioned and wants to chat with me about it, feel free to send me a message.


Oh, and yeah, Reds. I've lived in Ohio almost my whole life, and got my love of the game from my Dad, who unfortunately passed away when I was a teen. I've followed the Reds on and off for many years, and as I mentioned, also support them through the Dragons.

Well, long story short the team is still mediocre. There have been some good surprises(Iwakuma,Bay). The offensive core, outside of Seager and Saunders is struggling(though Ackley appears to be coming around) and the loaded farm system has good signs(Franklin,Miller,Hultzen when healthy, Zunino kinda) and some bad(Paxton,Walker,Hultzen injury,Rameriz injury, Zunino's K's). And lastly the front office is taking some major justified heat for their inability to develop good hitters outside of Seager(they don't get credit for Saunders, because he had to go outside the organization to finish developing).

Hello everyone. I am a born again Reds & baseball fan living in Syracuse, NY. I was a huge Reds fan in my youth but lost interest in baseball in the mid 90s - there were no other baseball fans around me and the strikes just pissed me off. A few years ago, I thought I would try getting back into baseball but decided to follow a NY team & decided on the Mets. Try as I might, I just could not get excited about that team. Last September, I began a job at SUNY Cortland where there is a great Sport Management Department. The Chair of that department is also a huge baseball fan & former owner of a minor league team and through conversations with him, my interest in baseball was rekindled. I didn't find myself checking up & following the Mets, however. I kept heading back to the Reds website and now I am back! Go Big Red Machine!

Thanks...I look forward to one day being able to call myself a "former resident" of CA, some day we will escape.

Just started living in Cincy full time a month ago after splitting time between Cincy and LA for the past 7 years. I love the gas prices and stadium accessibility!

Lifelong DIE-HARD Reds and Bengals fan here. Born in Middletown OH in '71 but moved to Gods Country (east TN) in '79. First post on the site. I literally have had this site in my favorites for 3 years and read it daily. Figured its time to jump into the fun for what appears to be a Sept to remember. 3 teams almost 20 games over battling for 2 spots. It dont get no better than that.

I've been a Reds fan since my birth in Maryland, just two days before the 1970 World Series. My dad, a Ohio native, was stationed there in the USAF. Many of my fondest memories of childhood include watching the Reds with my family.

This is a great forum, and I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi everyone. I have been reading this site and the reds.com fan forum for many years now. I have never posted before but I'm looking forward to conversing with everyone about baseball.

I am from a small town in NW Ohio but I moved to Columbus for school and I will be graduating in Dec. My dad is a huge Reds fan, so naturally I was born a Reds fan and I have heard my dad tell me story after story about the Big Red Machine. I was only 2 years old when they went wire to wire in 90 so I don't remember any of if even though I was sitting on my dad's lap during it. The last few years have been the most exciting years for me as a Reds fan, but I an still looking forward to the Reds taking that next step and getting out of the first round of the playoffs. I am looking forward to another chance at the World Series in 2014. Go Redlegs!!!

Growing up I used to think baseball was boring so I never followed. Back in 2009 I went to my first game at GABP and fell in love. There's just something about being at the ballpark. I've been a diehard Reds fan ever since and I go to at least 20 games a year and never miss a FSO broadcast.

I have a problem...

Welcome. Southern Indiana like the Cincy suburbs or Southern Indiana like Evansville?

Hey everyone,
I'm a longtime reader of these forums and have really enjoyed all the comments, opinions, and Reds info found here. I'm a life-long Reds fan going back to the 70s-80s during my childhood in the Lexington, Ky area just down the road from Riverfront stadium. I look forward to continue reading and occasionally jumping into a few discussions with you all.

Hope it's ok to join. I'm a transplant from the east and am a long time Red Sox fan, but have also been an avid baseball fan since I was a little kid laying on the living room floor and listening to my grandfather tell stories about Hank Greenberg and Jimmie Foxx. I was glued to the TV during the '75 World Series and although I have no emotional attachment to the Reds, I'm here and would like to be part of the discussions, for better or worse.
