The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
"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'm not worried. The Reds are going to put these suckers in their place again tonight.
Reds have done well this series. Can't let an opportunity like that go by. On the positive side miller threw a bunch of pitches.
Crowd still looks paltry. What the heck are people doing in the Cinci metro area? I live 2+ hours away. It is just tough to get down there and back home on a weeknight for me.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
That was a touching Extra gum commercial.
There are no hunting accidents...It's called kharma.
He has 8 walks in 212 PAs this year. His OBP was .288 coming into the game.
Heisey does have very good power. On occasion, he will have a good SLG season. That will give him a respectable OPS.
Whether that kind of player should be starting in left field and hitting fifth, well, it's a matter of taste. Some baseball folks like that kind of guy, even with the low OBP.
I like this productive Cozart better than the one we saw for most of the first four months of the season.
I am almost afraid to look at Cozart's BABIP during this hot streak of his. Was he due for hits to start falling?
