Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It’s just stale bread.
It's the same guy who is clearly addicted to small sample sizes.
You know how in school the teacher always preached that there is no such thing as a stupid question?

"It's still a long way to the top if we want to rock'n'roll, but at least they dumped the tuba player."

I think all of you are getting trolled a bit to easily.
The original poster is making this somewhat of a specialty. I would advise you not to feed him if you don't wish poor threads such as this to become a daily ritual for him.

I know Larry's reply is with tongue firmly in cheek. As for RedTruck starting all these threads...I can't say the same.
"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."
Maybe RedTruck should take a break from posting new topics in the ORG? Seriously, every thread he starts screams don't click on me.
"Is Jay Bruce one of the top 10 players in MLB when he's "hot"?"
"Are the Reds one of the best teams in the MLB right now?"
"Should Cozart be designated for assignment? "
"Is Votto comparable to Ruth, Mantle, Mays in terms of raw talent?"
"Is Choo equivalent to Votto in terms of talent?"
Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.
I hope this clarifies things.
