    My $0.02 worth.

    If Choo hits (and lately it's been a struggle) the second hitter must move him over which is something Cozart or Isturis have a hard time doing. Then Votto gets nothing to hit and we end up with no runs. Then it's Phillips, Bruce, and Frazier. Then what? It's the $64,000 question (dating myself here). Couple that with Homer's meltdown, throwing the ball in the sweet spot with two out and this is what you get. Maybe it was the drums,

    Now we find ourselves in third place and three games out and playing a Pirate team that everyone says will fade, but no sign of that so far, plus facing two leftys that drive this team nuts. We could be 6 games out by Sunday and yet there is hope. At least I hope there is. I will say this. The only pitchers I trust these days are Cueto and Latos starting and Sam and Chapman from the pen. While the Pirates defeat the best, we struggle against he mediocre and the horrible. And the Bucs and the Cardinals just win. it's going to be a tough ride.

    Thank You Boggs. At least the Richard Craniums in St Louis lost too thanks to him.

    I consider 18-8 in the month of May "just winning" but hey, maybe that's just me...

    If I remember correctly we were in third place after the all star break last year to the Cardinals and Pirates. I believe the Pirates were even in first place. How exactly did that work out again? My memory is foggy sometimes. If you honestly think John Locke, Jeanmar Gomez and Francisco Liriano are going to have sub 2.50 ERAs the rest of the season all I can say is the following to you "it's puff - puff - pass, man."

What is the best way to get the bill properly curved with these hats?
    Since I like the old school curve (as EVERYONE should) I still do it in the old style way. Good ole' rubber bands.

    What do you band it around to make sure that the curve is even? Or do you just wrap the whole thing.

    The flat bills are terrible, which is why I've been buying those New Era franchise hats for about a decade.

    I wrap the whole thing and do what was also suggested earlier, putting it in a cup.

    That's only if I have to, because I always try to buy hats that have the curve I like already. Every once in a while I get a hat as a gift and that's when the problem happens. Those flat bills just look stupid.

    Not sure if I'm understanding your post correctly, but isn't the mediocre and horrible who we have feasted upon this whole month?

    It is really not worth interfacing with the willfully miserable. Last I checked the Reds were 12 over .500.

    Just didn't know if he was meaning something else and it just came out wrong. I mean haven't we beat up on the Cubs, Brewers, and Phils enough this month. Im sure there are others.

    I know you are venting and I know where you are coming from so I'm not trying to take a shot at you.

    But that is 100 percent the most glass-half-empty view I have ever seen written on this board. Well done.
