    I respect everyone who plays, but I don't like dudes who beat the Reds, especially the ones who do it over and over. Cause as much as I am a baseball fan, the Reds winning supersedes everything else in baseball to me.
    Nice platitudes but "failing to appreciate" and "hating" seem to be on different planets. Wish Edinson hadn't pitched so well tonight. Can't say I "hate" him, and it would be sort of irrational for me (or any other Red fan) to feel that way.
    But, whatever gets you through the night.

    Hate is just a word. I hate this, I hate that. This sucks. That sucks. I don't think anyone is making a list of human beings that they hate and putting baseball players on it.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    That's enough for tonight.
    Defense #1 I made one comment on Brox after he struggled "Let's get a win for Brox...he deserves it"...it was a simple post still yearning for a win but also chastising Brox for stinking tonight. I don't commonly rag on Brox and he has had a great year....but this was today's game thread. I was done with it then had 2 people let me know their thoughts and had to come back.

    FWIW

    Last 12 appearances in 11 1/3 innings Brox has allowed 20 base runners and in that time his wonderful ERA has doubled.

    I personally trust Jumbo more right now.

    I didn't see it. So our 3B made another mistake/error playing out of position?

    The discussion of the meltdown/loss was almost as many pages at the entire game up until that point.

    At this point, losses don't really bother me. 2015 is my focus.

    Don't win too many ballgames when you only score 1 run.
