    I thought it was gone, but I guess they're reviewing it.

    Do you really expect the reds to win every single game against the brewers in cincy?

    Exactly, and that crap is what ruins the game threads.

    I'm sitting the row behind and five seats over from the guy. He didnt reach over. Also I'm in a backward gray cap.

    And it's no more fair for you to assume he's wrong, since what little we have seen supports his opinion.

    Why isn't some humility called for? If someone's a casual baseball fan, maybe they should be a little more careful not to make matter-of-fact judgments about scouting reports and such they are not privy to based on 5-6 games.

    Sorry but having an opinion is not the same as having a little humility that the opinion might be unfounded or based on an extremely small sample of something they don't have all the information.

    I wasn't aware he was a scout.

    This kind of crap is why I have stayed away lately. Goodnight, all.

    That's true. I was basing MY opinion after hearing the Brewer's announcers state rather emphatically that he's a "dead red fastball hitter". Exactly what they said btw.
    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

    Welp. That completely stinks, and with Reynolds out there Sunday this series is not looking good at all.

    I think it may be time to put a toe in the pool and see about some relief help.

    It's a homer. No surprise.

    The Cards and Pirates have also lost games at home to the Brewers.

    Who's left to win the division, the Cubs?

    I don't think that was a fastball. It looked like Hanigan gave the sign for a breaking pitch and MLB Gameday says it was a cutter.

    Not an argument, question: Why? Seems like Genette is somebody we can all root for. Aoki is a nice ball player too.
