    A good moment if nothing else.

    But will it be a David Ross homering off Isringhausen in 06 or a Votto walk-off granny a year ago good moment?

    And the strikeout run has come to an end. Fly out to right center.

    Bloop over Votto. A double. Unreal.

    Baseball is an unfair game sometimes. You hit a screaming line drive that makes kids cry and it's an out, you hit a bleeder that one of those same kids might hit....extra bases.

    I think a lot of you would benefit from going back to the time when you didn't watch every game

    My take would not be that some fans react differently to different stimuli. My take would be that some message boards strive to be better than others.

    My advice would be try to add something constructive to this one.

    Marty fallacious statement #3,502,101:

    Simmons comes into the game hitting .239, has a good series against the Reds, therefore whatever the Reds are doing in their pitching approach is not working.

    Well, Marty, it just may be that he's having a good series and that it has less to do with how they are pitching him as it is the way the game works sometimes.

    I think you're both right. Even if the Reds are taking the "right" approach, his success proves that the "right" approach isn't working.

    But I think it's also more the case you just need to tip your cap. As they say in the S-E-C, there's a reason the other team's getting paid too.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
