...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
Although your observations in this thread clearly exhibit signs of delusional thinking, I have to believe that when your head hits the pillow, you really don't believe the opinions you are espousing.
For the most part, the posters in this forum are quite knowledgeable, and are probably chagrined at your unrealistic portrayal of the Reds' divisional rival. There is a big difference between rational discourse among baseball fans and nonsensical rants by fanatical zealots.
There is also a big difference between being optimistic and acting delusional. Relax and enjoy the summer, it's going to be a spirited pennant race among very good teams.
As for angst that you encountering in the workplace, I suggest you learn to deal with it. I'm sure it's something you have lived with for some time, being that you are in the bosom of the enemy.
Let it go before it begins to affect your work. Nobody likes too much salt on their french fries.

Congratulations RFinMO. You managed to make half a dozen of the silliest statements I've seen on RZ all in a single thread. Chapman is the player the Reds could least afford to lose. Molina is only the 6th or 7th best catcher in the league. The Cards farm dystem (ranked 1st in ALL of baseball) is empty. No Cardinal is equal to the Reds 5 best players. The race is going to be a runaway and the only team we need worry about is the Pirates. No other team has a closer like Chapman....dialing Atlanta's bullpen..."uh that closer you got.....he's no good...just letting ya know". BTW Chapman's save% is really pedestrian for the best closer in baseball.
SoSL is right. You are letting hate cloud your judgement. Hopefully you really aren't as baseball dumb as this thread makes you look.
Wow... this might actually go in the books as the goofiest thread in the history of the Reds Zone. Yadier Molina overrated? He's probably going to go down in the history of the game as the third best defensive catcher behind Ivan Rodriguez and Bench if he keeps up his current production. He's won the Fielding Bible something like 4 or 5 times (which look into advanced stats and isn't biased by personal opinion). Not to mention that he catches the most innings of any catcher in baseball on a yearly basis. He's on pace for 1200+ innings this year at the catchers position.
EDIT: I also laughed when he said Westbrook was good before he came to St. Louis.
Oh and lets not forget that the Cardinals farm system is down to nothing even though they have the #3 prospect in baseball and the best 2B prospect in the minors now that Gyorko is up. Nope, that's nothing at all....
Reds fans would love having Yolina behind the plate, they just don't like he is a Card...
Once you guys have to use up Tavares, Wong and Wacha you will have nothing. I'm surprised so fan Reds fans on here think Molina is that good. I live here, watch a lot of Cards games and can tell you he is way overrated. I'm not sure how it got started nationally, but he does nothing mind blowing on defense. He's had 1 good power year, that's it, and has 2 HR's only this year.
The Cards don't have the depth or arms to hang with the Reds, and I'll happily be back in September when the Cards have fallen in 3rd place. Wainwright, Miller and Lynn won't be enough in the rotation.
Meanwhile, the Reds continue to win and the Cards can't pull away. With Cueto back, it's all over. Walt will trade for another bat and it won't be close. Eat my words I will not, and I have a feeling Cards fans won't be posting on a Reds board 2 months from now because there will be nothing to say.
I just don't get all the love for Molina, especially on a Reds board. I imagine most fans go by what they hear on the MLB network, but I watch a lot of the Cards, and he's league average at best.
Oh well, I guess it will be fun to talk about. The Cards fans I work with are nervous about the Reds, but I doubt many Reds fans are worried about the Cards. Pittsburgh is the team to watch out for, not the Cards. They always start hot, and end up sneaking in the playoffs as a wild card.
I also think it's funny how the guys at work talk about Chrissy Carpenter coming back. Holding out hope of your season on a 38 year old pitcher screams of desperation. He won't pitch again, and hasn't been good in a few years now when he has pitched.
You make yourself look a little sillier with every post. I can assure you the Cardinals and the Reds are not concerned about the Pirates. That's just the facts. You show your jealousy of the Cardinals more with every nonsense post you make. But keep hating man. It's kind of funny. I don't know why you can't just show a little respect. Everyone on else here seems to be down to earth. They know both teams are very good. So what's your problem. Other than jealousy of the model organization of the NL? Enjoy the rivalry instead of being so hateful. You'll have more fun and not be so miserable. Just a suggestion. Not that I think it will change anything.
