    Don't agree. Did you say that in '99? one game is what it is, one game. anything can happen.

    he's been here for awhile. i can't think of anyone who has gotten better since he's been here. bad plate disipline of most hitters is a bad sign for the hitting coach.

    This is the lowest point in my Reds career as a fan. The oughts were more fun to watch.
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    If anyone should be fired, it's Baker, as the team has underachieved and is in a downward spiral. But, I'd rather not that happen. I'd rather Walt get some bench help and replace Izturis, Paul and Hanahan.

    I don't even know what you are arguing about, but that is very easy to look up. Last 4 games - 19,7,34,17.

    Well now the boys will have to go into the locker room and face the hard hitting questions of John Fay. i can see where there's a lot of pressure on the guys.

    The whole idea of even playing Choo in Center in the first place and resigning Ludwick was a joke. Those were not two pieces that fit together.

    Izturis, Paul and Hanahan are not the problem!

    Choo has been above average.

    Ludwick has been hurt.

    If they are healthy, they are not a bad fit at all.

    The '99 team was ultra-enjoyable to watch. They also had the rotation of a 90 loss team - their fate was sealed regardless of what happened in the Mets playoff.

    And prior to that? I examined my posts and with the exception of tonight, a fifth straight loss, I haven't even complained about the offense. Not quite sure who asked you either? The "elitest" on this board are too much sometimes.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    You flip up a fact on here, it is fair game to be checked.

    What can I say I was intrigued and checked 4 games.

    worked second shift most of that season. when i could watch/listen it was very fun. i love the reds but the last 5 days have been brutal. i know we still have a lead for the second wildcard but it's starting to get dicy.
