    My first year as a season ticket holder I went to 45 games total (including 2 at Cleveland). They won 15 of those games.

    Just for the record, Wily Peralta is not a scrub. He is very highly-regarded. In his last three starts coming into tonight's contest he had a 1.59 ERA. He gave up zero runs to the Braves and Nationals in that stretch. He was throwing 96 still in the ninth inning. Maybe, like Homer Bailey, it just took him awhile for things to click.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    those teams were so bad i didn't care. the team has good pitching and has made the playoffs 2 of 3 seasons. i don't want to see us back to those years.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Yeah, yeah. Agreed. I probably shouldn't post after a bad day...

    So Castellini goes in there and cries. Expresses such deep and heartfelt disappointment in them that THEY cry. Sends in their grandmothers. Especially the Italian and Jewish ones, they've mastered the art of guilt tripping. Whatever it takes to get them out of this slump DO IT.

    Crediting the opposition?

    "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."

    Nothing against you guys, but sometimes RZ gets pretty negative. Helps to step away from the ledge.

    I think the big difference is expectations. People came into this year thinking this was a World Series caliber team. No one thought those teams were anywhere close to that good. Personally, it's more upsetting when I think a team is underperforming than when I think a team just sucks.

    That said, I haven't been too upset these last two games. I'm already with Derek Bell in operation shut down mode. Next up is apathy, where I'll go a week or two between watching games. I've got the practice down well. I have a decade of using it.

    Ladies and gentlemen, your 61-101 Reds. That team really bit the big one.
    I was 15 years old....and even I was not stupid enough to think Alex Trevino, Paul Householder and Tom Lawless were going to help that team.

    That team was actually 26-27 after 53 games...and led the NL in BA with about .285 through May.

    That is How BAD it got in the summer. Live through that!

    That is what Dusty will do. Everyone has been mixing their pitches very well and throwing great. They always seem to throw strikes that they take and swing at balls in the dirt. Great mixing up the pitches there .... I think Hank Aaron told me one time...

    I had tickets with 3 other guys. You could buy a 64 oz. Hudey for $4.50. Some nights we got into our 3rd tub. That's a lot of beer.

    That team was talentless and hopeless. And they played bad.

    Believe me, it can get a whole lot worse than the current Reds.
