Re: Your rooting interest
Re-reading the answers in this thread, I do see one common denominator for those of us lucky enough to be alive during the Big Reds Machine era and who lived in the Cincy area. As we were probably going to be drawn to baseball for one reason or another, it was pretty much impossible for the team not to be in your DNA if you were around then.
Another point -- I am always optimistic about the Reds prospects. I thought Eric Milton could easily win 15 games every year, that Gary Redus was a future HOF'er and that Greene, Encarnacion (and Frazier) are the real answer at 3b. Heck, at one time I even thought Jim Bowden knew what he was doing...
