Man thats rich! I'd be pissed if I were JP and MH actually used those words in reference to me.... I forgive him. MH is the new Brian Mccann?
On another note, the worst part of the hot stove is that non-news becomes news.
Reds payroll 2013 $110,565,728
And when did the Cubs spend their way to a division title lately?
The Cards are a model franchise, you should be proud of that. Whining about spending when they are a few dollars out of the top 10 doesn't seem very wise.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Wasn't Walt Jocketty Signing all the PED bums?
@RedTeamGo because you've only been here some 9 months you would not recall the arguments I used to get in with Doug and Hometown where they claimed STL is a large market team based on how much the cardinals spent, and not on how large the market actually was. I'm simply being a sarcastic ass and flipping that argument now. Thanks for taking the bait.
edit: this isn't meant to call out Doug or Hometown. I respect doug above pretty much everyone else on here

Yay a thread about the Cardinals!!
Good thing we have Cards fans here riling things up. :no:
Reds are at $88 million for 18 players. Throw in $9 mill for Bailey, $5 million for Chapman and we're at $102 for 20 players. Add in $2.5 for the remaining 5 slots, and we're at $104.5.
104.5<107 with my math understanding.
