    And FWIW, I would take the slowest runner in the world over no baserunners. I was simply making a joke, I wouldn't have said anything had I known we were going to call in the F.B.I to investigate it.

    You might want to consider learning to "TAKE" a joke if you are going to dish it out.

    Dude, it's a two-way street.

    FWIW.

    Yeah, everyone relax. It's not any of our faults the Reds suck. Sniping at each other isn't gonna make anything better. I thought playing the Pirate's might, (make things better) but so far, not so much.

    Re: Game Thread - September 9 vs. the Pirates

    I went to the game tonight. I was all excited about going to the game. I had free tickets in the Scout Section. Cushioned seats. Waiters/Waitresses. And my favorite team right in front of me at home. Playing the lowly Pirates, no less.

    Then reality set in .... quickly.

    -The lineup was shown. Aurillia batting cleanup. Aurillia! Oh, he with the monster OPS. :rolleyes

    -Our pitching is even more embarassing in person at the end of the season. Watching Hudson was painful. I actually blurted out loud, "Your in the Major Leagues, PITCH like it for Christ sakes!" At one point I was looking for that little kid who was throwing in the Speed Pitch by the Reds HOF before the game.

    - How many times did our pitchers hit the batter? 4? You got the feeling though that if they tried to hit the batter, they wouldn't come close.

    -The air was extremely muggy at the game. I thought Pena had a homer that stayed just enough in to be caught. Dunn's homer at first looked like it was going to go a lot deeper.

    -Denoforia homer was kewl. Gotta love when a player's first hit is a homer in his 2nd Major League AB. He's got some bat speed.

    -Casey made a nice play at 1st.

    -The Reds players just looked 'flat' out there.

    -John Allen was sitting about 10 seats away. He was weaslily glad-handing a couple of guys, like he was brown-nosing for something. That guys demeanor just rubs me wrong.

    - Tom Browning was in the 4192 Club signing autographs for a while before the game. We got there just in time ... for the line to close. Still got to see him and get a picture, just couldn't get his autograph.
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

    I have to say this, Like always I listened to the game tonight and was very pleased to hear the play by play for a change.

    Could it be that Marty reads RedsZone?

    Tonights game was pretty ugly but for the first time in a long while listeners were kept up to date with the play on the field. ( I like that)

    Re: Game Thread - September 9 vs. the Pirates

    I missed the game last night--looks like I didn't miss much, other than Denorfia's first hit (and HR).

    I was in Athens last night for the OU-Pitt game! What a game! Deon Byrum returned two INTs for TDs--a 38-yarder to tie the game in the first quarter, and an 85-yarder in OT to give the Bobcats a 16-10 victory for their first win under Frank Solich, a win in their first-ever nationally televised game, and possibly the biggest win in school history! (Byrum also had a 62-yard fumble return for a TD in last week's game at Northwestern.)

    Anyway, back to the update:
