    A little Texas puffery. I know it well.

    Can't imagine it will play well back in Reds Country, though. It'll probably also be cited as evidence the next time the "Dunn Wants to go to Houston" rumors surface.

    Bagwell, perhaps the greatest player the Astros have produced, is entering the final year of a contract that will pay him $17 million this season. But Bagwell's bum right shoulder has the Astros trying to recoup most of that money by filing an insurance claim they can cash in on if he can't play this season.

    Bagwell insists he will report to spring training and try to play, which could keep the Astros from collecting on their $15.6 million policy on his contract. Things appear headed for an ugly end.

    Houston has less than five fans?

    That's gotta be worse than, like, the Royals even.

    What is my point?

    I guess my point is that the cows are pissing in your water too.

    I hope he doesn't drink from the Kentucky side of the Ohio, then.

    He was in Houston... what else is he going to say. There is nothing wrong with Cincinnati baseball fans. For years, Reds fans hav had to put up with tight fisted owners, and the "small market" excuses. Despite all of that, baseball is still huge in Cincinnati, and the fans are some of the best in all of baseball.

    I'll be in Houston in February. Rumors are that I'll be signing with the Astros too.

    Matty.. I am merely the posting the quote. You can water it down if you like. I didnt say it, Adam Dunn did. Just because he is in Houston doesnt mean he should slam Cinci. I could see him applauding Houston, but the part about Cinci needing to pay attention to Houston is quite a bit more than just saying something nice about Houston.


    Pedro.. one is a lie, the other isnt. if you dont know the difference I cant help you.

    I think he was surprised at the size of the turnout in Houston and wants to see more Reds fans in the seats of our new ballpark.

    If he wanted to get his offer up, all he'd have to do is tell them to turn his baseball card over and read the back.

    Seriously, though, what was he going to do? Pull an old-school pro-wrestling heel turn mid-sentence?

    "Every time I come back to Houston, every time I come back and see the people, every time I come back and see how this community opens it's arms and supports their team - every time I see this, it makes me say to myself...Oh thank god I moved to Cincinnati away from you yahoos!"

    Booing ensued, Danny Graves cried.
