    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.

    Reds right back in this! 3-1 and Homer's starting to deal. Let's go redlegs!
    The most boring party I ever attended was full of people with the same personalities.

    It takes all kinds. And there are all kinds of personalities on this board. Some reserved. Some excitable. Some quick to react. Some still reserved. Some funny. Some not so funny.

    The people that complain the most are the least tolerable, and generally want everyone to be like them.

    It's not going to happen. It's like a picture full of different colors. If it was a page full of one same color throughout, it would be boring.

    I like a colorful message board full of colorful personalities.

    Nah, he's still got a brain, or at least part of it--he did the call to start engines at Talledega this past sunday.

    Cannon? rocket? can't we decide the appropriate metaphor for Simmons' arm?

    Different is good, yes.

    But most are not different.

    95% of the posts are negative and reactionary to every little thing that goes wrong.

    95% of posters here honestly believe the Reds should win every AB, every inning and especially every game. And if they don't, it is someone's fault and someone must be held accountable.
