    LOL. That's hilarious. I saw those posts about letting him go, and I just kept remembering all the clutch hits he had last year. Very appropriate. :O)

    2-2!
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Do you think Paul gets to count that homer in his statistics since the game was over with?

    Good question. How do you score that? "HR but it doesn't matter since the game was already over and this team isn't legit"?

    Regardless of the end results of this season, I give Walt an "A" for his tenure here as a G.M., and am very, very thankful that he is in charge. He's set this team up to be contenders for several seasons, which to me, is what you want from a G.M. He hasn't gone out and try to put "his stamp" on the team and undo the work of the G. M.('s) before him, nor place in jeopardy the position of the G. M. to follow him. He's been an outstanding steward of the Cincinnati Reds Ballclub.

    Lol.I voted for Paul to be released. I'll say this. That's one thing Robinson can't do.

    Alright guys. Enough is enough. This is a game thread, not a season thread.

    Still think Ian Kennedy's the metempsychotic reinvention of Pedro?

    Me either. Should have happened 7 innings ago, several times.

    Where'd all the smartest guys in the room go?

    Look I agree this team has its flaws, but some posts are insufferable when the chips are down.

    Re: 8/11/13 - Reds vs. Padres

    So I'm curious: if the Padres score a run in the top of the 9th, does that mean the game is over twice?

    So do we re-vote on the "who do we let go" question? The options were Paul, Robinson and Heisey (and some wanted Hannahan). I didn't vote, but in my head I was thinking "has everyone forgotten Izturis?". :O)

    I wish I could complain about the posts during a hot streak ---
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    He should be thinking up some good questions.
