    Slump busting.........

    Ok, I think it's time for some rituals. What are you doing to do your part for the bats to break out today? I'll have both my kids in their Redz Heads jerseys, and I'm sacrificing some good steaks to Jobu today right before game time.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Infecting Rangers nation with the Howl virus would likely cleanse Reds nation of the evil that current grips Redsdom.

    I'll be doing my best to ignore the Reds as much as possible. Everytime in the past few years that life has gotten so crazy that I don't pay them much attention, they've gone "en fuego."

    That's it, I'm outa here, time to start ignoring!

    He is 1st in OBP for the NL
    He is 4th in OPS for the NL
    He is 5th in AVG for the NL
    He is 8th in WAR for the NL
    He is 3rd in hits for the NL
    He is 9th in HR for the NL

    The Reds have 99 problems but Votto is not one of them

    Wouldn't the first thing be to actually get a Pedro on the team?
