    I stopped expecting it a long time ago. I just never thought emotion and reason had to be mutually exclusive

    Damnit, Red in Chicago.
    "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.

    That was a touching Extra gum commercial.

    Every year the same thing, and every year the same posts.

    School is back in. Every year when that happens the weeknight attendance at Reds games drops a ton. It's the same thing every year. It has been that way my entire life no matter how good or bad the Reds are.

    Heisey is Exhibit A why OPS is a composite stat that has to be viewed with care. It doesn't necessarily tell the whole story.

    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?

    2+ hours? That's a HORRIBLE excuse! We should all be there and if we aren't we have no right to complain!
