Unless you're a doctor, you should probably just shut up on this topic because you have no idea what the hell you're talking about.
So none of you ask for second opinions?
I mean doctors had me avoiding eggs and staying out the sun. Whoops!

I haven't posted in here for a long time. I have been discouraged by many different topics. I am not one to say I am the most knowledgeable, nor do I like to put anyone down. I just miss the forums from when I started posting back almost 8 years ago. I love the times when people would post an opinion, and back that opinion up with statistics and sources and links, and someone would argue with them using statistics, opinions, and links. I come on now and read quite a bit, and this thread has taken the cake. We are now blaming our woes on Dr. Tim. We have a lot of great people in redszone land here, but these kinds of threads need to stop. If you are going to bash a great doctor, back it up with real,information, not that Madson seemed to be damaged goods. I am very glad that only 2 people seem to think this was a thread worth anything. Now, let's go back to discussing the merits of OBP, OPS, and ERA+
Jack Eliot: I'm a World Series MVP!
Skip: That was four years ago, Jack. Last season, you hit .235.
Jack Eliot: LAST SEASON, I led this team in ninth-inning doubles in the month of August!

He has a history of being way overly optimistic to give the fan base false hope.
In all honesty, when he says something like "Latos should be fine and throwing in X days".. That gives me zero confidence whatsoever, because of all the fake news he's given us.
Who can forget Kearns had a "blister" which turned into hand surgery
Thank you Walt and Bob for bringing winning baseball back to Cincy
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
Wow...factual evidence used to disprove your point and you blow it off as nothing...well played...well played!!!
I don't think the eighties ended until Nevermind came out in late '91, so it still may have been the eighties.
As far as the poll question goes, I always blame my doctor if I get sick a lot, don't you? Forget diet and exercise and all that!

The feel of the 80's certainly carried into the early 90's, and the arrival of Nirvana is a good example of the 90's officially beginning, but as a cinephile, seeing someone incorrectly give the year (or in this case, decade) of a film just screams for a correction.
As far as Kremchek goes, I don't really care either way. I just like making the poll contest closer, so I voted yes.
There are no hunting accidents...It's called kharma.
There are a lot more doctors on this board than I ever imagined, it seems.
Trust the Process.
26 Years and Counting...
I love that this thread devolved into discussion about Talking Heads, The Band, and Nirvana--three of my favorites. Silver lining, I guess...
(Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.
