It is awesome seeing the Reds on the cover of SI.

Jinxes are ridiculous.

He's also probably too nice (as the cover says) to say no when the attention comes calling for him in the form of interviews and magazine covers.

"Time to get Mean."

That's the best they could come up with?

I guess we'll find out if the SI cover jinx is for real or not.

The cover was announced before the game last night. Need any more evidence?

Just kidding... (I think).

I remember when Rob Murphy was one of about 50 faces on the cover SI's salary edition. He gave up more runs in the following two weeks than he had the entire season to that point. He beleives in the jinx.

Not that this has anything to do with anything....but I really hate when baseball pants are past the shoe top and all bunched up on the bottom like that. Show some stirrup, man.

Yup. There was the Bruce SI jinx...which has not yet abated if you believe the initial hype.

And then, just this year, Gomes entered his own tail-spin the day after the Jim Rome interview.

Bad stuff.

Thats the first thing that I noticed as well.

If you haven't seen it yet, here's a link to what I believe is the Votto story (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1173624/1/index.htm) in the SI Magazine. It is a GREAT read.

Love the SI cover, I've already printed it off on 8x10 photo paper and have it hanging on my Reds wall! :D

Not only that, but the guys who DO have their pants up showing some sock don't have the socks pulled up high enough to show the stirrup either. Drives me nuts!!

That's because they're not really stirrups. They're just colored socks. Stirrups are a true rarity nowadays, but they can still be found. But not many bother any more.

Pretty, Pretty Good! That's a great cover. I like how they say "Sick September". Mag is going to sell out in Cincy. I'd better order one now. Who was the last Red to make the cover not counting a team photo?

Votto rarely wears high socks during the game. I know he does during BP. I don't know why?

Did anybody grab a copy today? I looked a few places around town out here in Kansas and they didn't have them on the shelves yet :(

You see them more in the minors and in college baseball. I think they need to be required parts of the uniform, because they just scream baseball.

Agreed, 100%!
