    I'm trying to chill, Raisor...it's just so hard to do when I realize that we've only won 1 series against a quality opponent.

    It's an objective sport. It's a subjective sport. If you've found this post on its little corner of the internet, odds are you care about baseball enough to acknowledge both of those portions. If that's the case, then embrace it. That's why most of us are here. Just because some people watch games, see a loss, and want to watch the world burn doesn't mean they're right or that you have to put up with them.

    Don't fart in our baseball car. We'll all get stuck having to smell it, and it's too loud and annoying to carry conversation when we have to roll the RRmobile's windows down.

    Can't have the ups without the downs.

    Even in the heyday of the BRM with a lineup of Hall of Famers, there were times when you thought the sky was falling.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I for one refuse to accept above mediocrity. Walt had better do something fast to turn around this disturbing trend.

    Yes, but we are overrated "right now", which is really "dumb" for the Reds to do that.

    my dad once told me that the Reds could lose every series against the stud teams but dominate the series against the crappy teams and we will be right in the thick of it come playoff time.....that saying was not so much true every year before the wild card but now that the WC is in play, that saying is almost 100% certain......just beat who your supposed to beat and try to stay in the wc race then anything can happen in the playoffs. look at the cardinals.
