    What ruins the game threads is the constant negativity, second-guessing, overreacting and matter-of-factual statements that get thrown around haphazardly without consideration for other posters.

    Some people don't like to see constant complaining and overreacting... they prefer conversations instead of venting.

    The Reds are 2.5 games out of first. These are the games the Reds have to win. Reds are the chasers.

    I'm not doubting that at all. And that provides more context and I appreciate your pointing that out.

    But you and I both know OBM didn't know that when he said it. He was overreacting to what he's seen Davis do in half a dozen games against the Red and making a plain assumption.

    Simon looks tired.. he has been used alot and Walt needs to go get a dependable arm off waivers to help this bullpen..Losing Broxten has increased the workload of others this past week

    Expecting people to show a little reservation in how they express their opinion is why you have stayed away lately? Is it too much to ask that people be more humble?

    Clearly the Brewers. They're the only ones to have not lost to themselves at home. :O)

    I made my post about pitching him down and away before he hit the HR. Anyway, I'm done responding to you. It's not worth my time. If anyone overreacted, it was you. Bye.
