Re: Crosstown Shootout!
My affection for the shootout stems from the fact that I didn't like the teams Huggins built. I'm a UC grad, but I appreciated the direction taken by XU in building their teams more than I did the Huggins approach. And I loved it when the Muskies would out play the better team.
Now I can at least feel good that Cronin is going in a direction I can get behind, but the Shootout has lost the good guy/bad guy theme for me. Besides, my loyalties have always been divided. I come from Xavier family.
My prediction is an upset, because that's the way the Shootout is supposed to work.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
