Whining. Always whining whenever the lose. They make me sick.
"Enjoy this Reds fans, you are watching a legend grow up before your very eyes" ... DoogMinAmo on Adam Dunn
I don't know why anyone would think the umpires would pick up on Lester doing this when the umpire 5 feet from Kozma missed him not catching the ball.
Mozeliak says it's a non-issue
As far as I know the Cardinals haven't lodged a complaint or said anything.
Fans whine, look for conspiracies, and cry foul at everything. I mean look at us here on Reds Zone, crying foul at another fan base crying foul.... we don't even have a dog in the fight.
At least let's delineate what the Cardinals organization is doing from what it's fan base says.
That is one magic loogy.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em

Bullfrog sunscreen, completely legal.
Spork, with all due respect, we're happy you woke up today, but it seems as though you fell asleep in 1990.
You can't imagine why this board talks about the Cardinals??????
Cardinal's bore me, talking about them bores me, slamming on them bores me, beating them is fun.
I'm assuming it was just sunscreen, an overlooked and totally legal substance to use. When mixed with rosin it provides a better grip on the ball.
Seeing as the Cards haven't officially accused Lester of anything, it's a non issue. Lord knows if they could, they would.
Of course there is a reason to talk Cardinals... I'm talking about that obsession that sprung from 2010. A rivalry transformed into something much more tense. I would almost characterize this years Red's Zone obsession with the Cardinals as Ex-Gf Stalker'ish. Outside of 2010, I can list quite a few reasons why the Reds should desire to defeat and dominate the Cardinals every year. But I struggle to find a reason that we should have this level of obsession with them. Who cares what a minor leaguer Cardinals pitcher says? He probably gets paid less than the concession folks at Busch Stadium makes... and the Concession folks are much closer to big league baseball.... so his opinion counts why?
I normally just move on from these threads, but just struck a chord with me. Like I said earlier... I've taken my chill pill and moving on.
FWIW... I'm more of WestOfYou's mindset.
