    orginal people from the Fastball site?

    Was just wondering how many people are left on here from the orginal Fastball migration (which was smaller than the Enquirer migration). I'm sure I'm forgetting a few people. (Please don't be offended if I forgot you, it's been a long time..)

    Still here..
    Me
    WestofYou
    ChipR
    Dan
    anyone else?

    anyone else?
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    M2 was around on Fastball and he stops by here from time to time.

    Man, you guys make me feel like a newbie.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Anyone remember Usenet? I used to post on alt.sports.baseball.cinci-reds in the 1990s, before it got jammed up with spam and porn. Lurked on Fastball and a few others until I found RedsZone.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I wasn't even 10 in the 90s, but I know about usenet and love the ability to go back and look at old posts via Google Groups.

    Being a loyal (without Marge Schott), Cincinnati Fan, I have to say that
    their season is OVER!!

    They stink this year, and there's no getting around it. Reggie Sanders
    has, unfortunately, played a very big part (along with starting pitching),
    in their demise over the season.

    Kevin Mitchell hasn't done squat, and the only players worth watching are
    Eric Davis and Barry Larkin -- two awesome Red's greats.

    Hang it up Reds fans, it's football season anyways.

    ^sounds like a Redszone post today

    "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."

    Was able to find a piece of the old Fastball site as well, though none of the links work so you can only see the message name. Still, I spy ChipR, WOY, M2, Krusty, 15fan, Dan.

    How could you forget your fastball name?

    I wasn't sure about guernsey and M2 being on fastball or not...

    Thanks everyone for helping me fill out the list
