    On the other hand, it's part of the American fabric to complain incessantly about how people poorer than you spend their money.
    Yeah, these players

    CAN
    NOT
    WIN
    THIS
    GAME

    Because then the fans start asking questions about how the players dole out their cash. Let's start with why I'm begged to tweet hashtags to raise money for a cause that they'll wheel out an oversize novelty before a game for the amount of $3,000 while the Reds are paying their players ~$700,000 for that day's work. Shut up and play hard.

    Indians went 21-6 in September with poor attendance.

The Reds performance over the weekend gave every fan and sportswriter license to make fun of Ludwick's statement. If they lose Tuesday, there will be more criticism and Ludwick could be the scapegoat if Dusty isn't.
    Did he do that? No.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    He implied it. He's the celebrity; it's his words that are going to stick.

    In Ludwick's defense, GABP would never be as loud as it is in Texas right now, even if it held 250,000. Especially with the home team down 4-2 in the bottom of the 6th.

    How did the Rangers not sell out the play-in to the play-in game last night?

    Must have been the fans.

    Rays vs. Indians

    The two AL teams with no fans now meeting to go onto the NLDS. Hotter than a firecracker down the stretch. Butts in seats are apparently overrated.

    If the winner of the AL wildcard ends up in the NLDS, you've got quite a scoop there.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    How would Ludwick, Chris Carpenter and Ian Kinsler explain that?
