    Does he get paid to have good RISP #'s?

"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."

    Go Reds.

    Hanigan needs to get out his Johnny Bench Batter-up.

    Your jabs at those who don't think RBI are a good measure of player productivity when there are many better measures are exactly that.

    The "take your toys and go home" approach confirms this.

    The solution is of course, to leave it alone.

    Barring injury, Phillips should get his first 100 RBI season. The man is having a career year, he's a top five MVP candidate in my book.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Anybody try Trader Joe's Simpler Times Lager? A little sweet but not bad for $3.49 a six pack and 6.2%...

    Then Choo would say, "....if you're looking for hell, it's down there in our bullpen."

    Sometimes on Redszone, people get challenged. Those incapable of defending their position usually resort to personal attacks, some sort of conversation deflection or general lameness.

    Those who engage enrich not only the participants but the entire forum.

    I'm glad we put the 4-spot up in the 3rd and not the first. I'm also glad this isn't Sunday.
