Re: What do YOU want to talk about?
When your team is 80-52 there are all kind of pleasant surprises along the way.
Do you remember when we were worried that Brosnon Arroyo was going to put up another ERA north of 5.00? Man, the dude produced.
What kind of credit does Walt get for picking up Alfredo Simon, JJ Hover, Todd Redmond, Dioner Navarro and Xavier Paul? In years past it seems like the reds got very attached to the last couple of slots on the 40 man roster. He's regularly turning those slots over to try and find gems.
How about that Mat Latos trade now? 11-4 with a 3.79 era and signs that he can pitch even better than he has? Hard to say that wasn't worth the cost.
Is this the best fielding reds team you've ever seen?

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
