    i suspect that you and I will disagree about what constitutes a "Yahoo/Reds.com level comment". Personally if I never hear another complaint about Cozart batting second or Baker giving the bunt sign it will be too soon.

    Sun Deck was a fun, self moderating thread last year and we were able to winnow out most of the foolishness. I enjoyed it immensly and was not particularly keen on the merger myself. (I bet Texas Dave feels the same way).

    Bottom line: when the boys are playing bad, we all get a bit grouchy.

    I told my girlfriend the other night, "I love Choo!". And she responded "I love Choo too".

    I still only post in sun deck. Only reason I post here is bc there are no more sun deck game threads.

    After every loss, "The sky is falling!"
    While a player is in a slump mid season. "I would offer the Marlins X,Y, and Z for Stanton. Look at this line-up." next day: "I would offer the Marlins Y,Z, and A for Stanton. Look at this line-up"
    After any bad play by a whipping boy, "We have been saying it all season..."
    After same whipping boy goes on a streak, "I've been saying he is going to turn it around"
    After a player we traded gets off to a hot start, "I would have given our 4th OF, #5 SP, and utility infielder up before I would have traded him!"
    And the mother of all, " Jay Bruce might be on steroids."

    I've probably missed a few, but everyone probably gets the idea.

    /soapbox

    Reds right back in this! 3-1 and Homer's starting to deal. Let's go redlegs!

    Francisco makes a nice play at third, and then draws a walk. I'm calling shenanigans. It's not really him.

    May not be Homer's finest game, but he's gotten his stuff together since the first inning.

    Notice how Chipper Jones is already gone from the public eye? They put his brain in Francisco's body.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
