We as crazy devoted Reds fans all have irrational hope somewhere within us that gets entertained if only for a fleeting, quiet moment that may only creep briefly into our consciousness (yes that goes for FCB too even if he won't admit it to us or even himself for that matter).

"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds.
