    How is there not joy in Redsville?!?.....

    The Cardinals just acquired John Axford from the Brewers. *grin*

    I'm not just having a bout of selective memory am I? We've pummeled Axford, right?

    I've never faced him.

    Yeah, the Reds have hit Axford pretty well especially at home. Joel L. from the Reds tweeted this earlier today...

    @jluckhaupt Lest you forget, in 12 career games at GABP, #Reds are hitting .386/.472/.795 off of Axford.
    ...so yeah, the Reds shouldn't mind this acquisition at all. Of course the Cards may sprinkle their magic pixie dust on him and he starts striking out everyone after that but for now, this is good news for the Reds.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    I always think that with the Cardinals there is some initiation rite when a new player is acquired so they accept the "Cardinal Way"...

    LOL. I'm ALWAYS going to be guilty of that. I'm intertwined with the Reds on a DNA level. It'll always be "we" and "us" with MY Redlegs. :O)

    Here's how to know if its ok to say "we"

    If you've seen Corky Miller naked, you can say it.

    LOL. Nobody could ever say that TWICE. They'd clearly be blinded by the first time.

    Few weeks in the St. Louis strength and conditioning "program" and he will be sitting at 102 and be a shut down pitcher.

    The Cardinal Way.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I am convinced the Cardinals could have turned Elizardo Ramirez into a perennial Cy Young winner, and made Corey Patterson into a multi-year All-Star. :lol

    Not sure how they do it, but my hat is off to them.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
