    Talking about moving Hamilton to CF from SS. Another Reds player who made the same move was Eric Davis.

    Is the audio messed up for everyone?

    Crowd noise is so high it's covering up the talking heads - not always a bad idea

    And now it's okay

    He was spot on about the talent thing.

    Talent is the innate ability to apply skill effectively in a given situation. Talent magnifies skill, which means if you've got a 10 on a 1-10 talent scale, and you work your butt off refining your skills, you're going to be successful. Just have to relax and allow that talent to do its work when the time comes.

    It's such a pleasure to see "good" Stephenson.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I'm just glad he's healthy enough to do the games. Another SS turned CF was Mickey Mantle.

    Positioning is just playing the odds. And when you do that, the moves sometimes don't go in your favor.

    Gee, I think the reason why Ted Williams didn't get 3,000 hits wasn't because he walked so much it was because he missed the better part of 5 seasons serving in the military. Williams had about 2,650 career hits. He averaged 178 hits a season. Do the math.

    Every week Thom begs Joe to stay longer, but it's obvious Joe has no desire to do so.

    Morgan is so backwards in his way of looking at that, it drives me crazy.
