    Very odd indeed. A googleism I guess. Gave a zip of 43935. I actually used "Colerain, Ohio" as the search term. If you try that, you might see what I got.

    I tried it.... came up with the correct location. I think Google is just messing with you, but I don't want to know why. If I were you though, I would avoid Google Glass, just in case.

    All even before the playoffs have even started.

    No one appreciates the process, only the result. Yeah I get that and I think it's a shame.
    The general vibe I've gotten from the fans, media, et al this year has been. Nothing matters until the playoffs. They could win 95-100-115 games and fans would still be on edge waiting to win a playoff series.

    Except if the Reds lost a game, in which case they were all overrated, passive, no account weenies who wouldn't know a sense of urgency if it bit them in the butt.

    Not the same ones I had. I had a wood colored one (can't remember which player "model" it was), a yellow one (not sure on the player) and a red one that was a Joe Morgan model. The Joe Morgan model lasted for one swing (against actual pitching). I remember because it was the last one I had. These were all just normal looking bats though without pictures or anything.

    I heard several people in my section openly talking about how Choo and Votto suck. Yes, those two players. They suck.

    Fans are emotional disasters. Of course I also saw a tweet from Lance McAllister talking about how Marty said that the Reds need Joey Votto to get going. Yes, the guy who just broke the franchise record for times reaching base in a single season needs to get going.

    I will never be surprised by how this fan base acts towards its players when they worship so to speak at the words of Marty Brennamen.

    You guys were doing it wrong. I had several Reds mini-bats as a kid and we used them constantly. But we only used them to play tape ball (wadded up newspaper wrapped in tape). I don't recall ever breaking a single bat.

    No matter how you try and explain it away, Ludwick ran off at the mouth, and at a bad time. And when you run off at the mouth as a player, then the spotlight comes on you and all the scrutiny that comes with it.

    So, yeah, a few hits or what not from him last night would have been a nice thing.

    Successful ballplayers know not only what to focus and work on, but what to ignore. Ludwick has a problem with the latter, at the very least.

    2 years straight of weird, negative energy at the end of the year.

    Exactly they can feel things start to slip away as the pressure mounts. The team gets tight and they look for someone to blame.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
