If Reds fans took up a collection to join the Pirates Fan Advisor Network and gave bad advice, would anybody be able to tell?

Somebody deserves credit for making money off the Pirates' version of Banana Phone callers.

Next will be the voting devices at each seat like in the audience at "Family Feud."

The survey says, DON'T BUNT.

We'll know Jay Bruce is really struggling when Dusty bats him second.

The Reds have had as many third basemen as starting pitchers this season.

The Reds should not be paying a thin-skinned knucklehead to post for them -- that's our job.

A chilly, wet night in Chicago isn't so bad, unless you're watching the Cubs.

It's hard to imagine what Babe Ruth would have tweeted.

Say what you want, but the Astros have won more than a solid month's worth of games.

Wellington striking out during Clevenger's at-bat is like a reliever letting the runners score.

I wonder if Xavier Paul has a brother named Wayne State.

I thought first place would feel better than this.

Care to link your book again? A lot of people seeing this might be new to it.

The entire post is probably my favorite of all time. And this line sums it up for all Reds fans I'm pretty sure.

"I thought first place would feel better than this". :laugh:

I think Wayne State Paul is Xavier Paul's distant cousin.

From what I hear, X-man has a brother, DePaul Paul, and two sisters, Loyola Paul and Marquette Paul. They refer to their mother as Notre Dame.

Thanks for the plug. Here's a link to the book.

Liked the one about posting...

I was thinking the other day, Imagine if twitter existed during the days of Ty Cobb. I assume you'd get an automatic NSFW disclaimer in order to follow him.

Love it.

So true. When you're in the pack, first place feels so unattainable. When you're in first, it feels so tenuous.

My dad got his Masters from Wayne State

Where's the best cat house in town?

First place felt pretty good with a 5.5 game lead.

2.5 game lead? Not so much.

I think I feel better about a 3rd place team following a win than I do about 1st place team after a loss.

At his 2012 rate, it would take Aroldis Chapman less than 3⅓ innings to match how many strikeouts Aaron Cook has in 51⅔ innings pitched this season.
