I consider myself a baseball fan first, a Cardinal fan second. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
Intelligent conversation is underrated by many. You can hold an allegiance to a team and still maintain an objective overview of the game in general.
We can share the women, we can share the wine.
Since this conversation has turned to who's HoF worthy since I'd been suspended, I'll throw my two cents: Neither Yadi nor Votto will be making it into the HoF. I think Yadi has a better chance than Votto because of the hardware, but I think they're both more Hall of Very Good inductees, ala Jim Edmonds.
We will win the world series.
I know it seems bizarre... but I ACTUALLY have and can form an opinion about baseball, born, raised, and live in Cincinnati... and that opinion or thinking may have objections about the Reds from time to time. Yes Reds fan in MO... I dine at Silver Spring House, Montgomery Inn, Ron's Roost... I listen to WLW... was a fan of Nick Clooney, and can tell you every time the Brady Bunch ran in circles. I love the Reds have pricelss Reds memorbilia in my home, but... believe it or not... sone people and teams that play this game are better than Reds.... no big deal... not too tough to understand.

Whenever you want to talk baseball, let me know. I'll be glad to talk with you, or anyone else on this board.
JOKE? The Hall of Fame might have a few questionable people, but Larkin is not close to questionable. And you tell other people to go see other teams play? Have you ever seen or know anything about Larkin? I guess you have not with the above comments or you are a TROLL!
Two years? You must have a computer. Do you know how to look up Barry Larkin's career numbers? Oh, you probably know them being a Cincinnati native. So what gives? I am TROLLING for an answer. Let us know (or don't).
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
I think this thread has gone on long enough.
It's completely devolved from the original point of the thread, which was somewhat questionable by the standards of discussion we normally expect on RedsZone. It's developed into a straight up "measuring" contest at this point,a nd I think we should all step back and take a look at this one.
