    Me too. I don't give a damn about what anyone not wearing a Reds' jersey is doing or has done, unless he's about to be traded to the wishbone C.

    For aesthetic enjoyment, I've got Mc coy Tyner and Donne's sonnets. The only thing I want out of baseball is wins and lots of em.

    Yup.

    I get cranked up when they lose and walk on clouds when they win. But I've also been to more than a few rodeos so I don't start kicking the dog or tearing wings off flies when things go bad.

    Came close in '82 though. That was one piss poor year.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Feeling good. Still looking down the barrel of a one-game playoff against one of two teams I really can't stand the thought of losing to. So I could be feeling better. I hope soon.

    The game is bigger than a franchise, it's bigger than anything I can assign it, it's bigger than anything I myself can give it.

    I can admit that

    Like Jeter says: Don't get too high when you win, don't get too down when you lose. There's constructive criticism ( "It is fine to be critical here - that's what this board is for") and there is overreaction. Some folks can't tell the difference.

    I was born in '82. That was a phenomenal year for me.

    On August 4th, the Reds were 6.5 games out of first place. Since that time, the Reds have gone 20-12 (.625) and climbed to within 1.5 games of the division lead. During that time frame, the Reds have outperformed both Pittsburgh (15-16) and St. Louis (18-15). I firmly believe that the division title is ripe for the taking, as I think the Pirates will continue to falter and that St. Louis will continue their descent back down to earth. As a result of that, I believe that the Reds will again be the NL Central Champions this season. It's going to be an exciting September as everything plays out. No doubt about it.
    Trajectory is important, so if we are discussing how I feel about the Reds and their chances in the post season, I'm liking a lot what I've seen in the last two series, a team that is gaining momentum, rather than running on fumes in the last thirty games. This team is looking better than they did last year at this time, for sure.

    Don't worry, we'll lose one to the Cubs and the sky will be falling yet again.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    I've felt much better since the 10-0 beatdown/shutout of the Cards 8/28. I don't feel bad for feeling bad, though.

    One?

    About this time last year, I saw the 2012 Reds drop 2 of 3 to a Houston club that was full of AAA guys. This sensation is familiar, but not better.
