    Staub's nickname in Canda was LaGrande Orange. I always liked that.

    I'm good.
    "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."

    As a redhead I can attest to this being 100% true! Hahaha

    Pretty sure Hamilton Porter was the best redhead to ever play the game

    Totally true. And even when the Reds come out with alternative colored gear, it is still a mismatch. The green hat, for instance, makes me look like a leprechaun.

    Oh I know. Why can't they go back to the navy blue hats. You know like a special ginger day promotion.

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    It was actually Le Grande Orange. "La" would be used if Staub was a women.

    Would Jay Bruce be a top 10 player if he had red hair?
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Ok now, this is starting to turn into a thread about red headed women....I think I speak for most male adults here when I say this thread is about to be rated R.

    First you mis-spell "Canda", then you use the feminine pronoun for Rusty, then you make up weird stories of a Canadian icon, and now you use "he" instead of, I assume the Canadian "heh"?

    Your picture has been posted at the Canadian border, don't try and enter please.
