    Reds obviously need to improve the bullpen. Blaming Dusty Baker for this is just not fair.

    You can't manage every inning like the seventh game of the world series.
    All true. I guess the first think is to figure out what's wrong with Sam and put him on the DL if necessary. No sense to keep letting him blow games. Once Cueto comes back, I'm willing to sacrifice some of the future in order to win now. Thus I would put Cingrani in the pen. Don't know what to do with Broxton.

    Sorry but I have as much patience with "not having anyone warming up in the bullpen" as I do with complaints about Brooke Jacoby. Who should that "someone " be? Hoover ? Broxton? Over the years I've consistently heard that warming someone up take something out of them, and managers do it sparingly. For example Torre always said he wouldn't warm Rivera up unless he was going to use him.

    I can blame Baker/Price for not bringing Champman in to face the lefty in the game Broxton blew in Pitt. Other than that the foul ups over the last few weeks are all on the players, in my opinion.

    Did you ever find an example of how I "attack" or "go after" people? You said that I did that. I also think you said I did that in every game thread.

    Try suffering through this one for five hours WHILE working (final 5 hours of a 14 hour shift). A whole new level of pain. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)

    Well my gambling buddies always say that a bad day at the track is better than a good day anywhere else. Not sure thats true of a bad day watching the boys blow one to the Cubbies.

    No you can't... but evidently you can post on a chat board like it is and not only that it's the 7th game against a team of Hitlers and you're on a plane that is full of^&&%$()*^%$$# Snakes that is carrying the lost Beatles triple album and the piece of paper that has the Colonels 11 herbs and spices sources on it!!!

    Wait...there's a lost triple album by the Beatles?? How many songs did they let Ringo sing?

    the only acceptable answer is "not enough"

    My favorite is his cover of "Honey Don't".

    His solo album (I think it's just called "Ringo") is pretty good, too.

    Yankees are in the 18th inning against the A's and they lost the last two days, Rivera is their only pitcher who has not pitched in that series (save 2 starters)

    Don't Pass Me By get's my vote.

    When you can offer lyrics such as.. "you were in a car crash, and you lost your hair. Said that you would be late, 'bout an hour or two..."

    I like "Act Naurally".

    I'll say this as nicely as I can, but if watching the Reds bugs the crap out of you so bad, take a game or 2 off. The weather is nice. Take a walk, get drunk, go get an ice cream cone or something.

    Pay attention to the open sky
