Lots of acrimony today. Frustrating start to what seems like a loss.
We're all on the same team here...maybe we should try something other than internecine warfare. And it may be that I might not be the best messenger for peace. But I did try.
I heard your record..it's alright.

This is kind of a big game for the Reds. A chance to finally win a series agains a winning club and the Cardinals. It could be a huge turning point for the team. I totally understand the frustration from some. But this is baseball and anything can happen. Just chip away, hang in there. Who knows, we could stumble into the playoffs like the cardinals have done in the wild card spot and take it all. In a few month we won't have any of this, and it will be cold and miserable. Enjoy all of this while you can.
Leake not fooling anyone + the best hitting team in the NL = what we get today. Leake has got to be better to beat this team. Reds hitters have got to score a lot of runs today unfortunately.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Frazier is pushing a Drew Stubbs 0-32 stretch. How about we not get there, k? K...
