    Opening Day reminder: Just because you have a parade, that doesn't mean you get to win.

    All other things being equal, would you vote Alex Sanchez into the Hall of Fame?

    The worst part is, they could erase Bonds' records from the 2000 season and the Reds wouldn't have won any more games.

    Or maybe that's the good news.

    What if there were steroids in the spit that Gaylord Perry put on the ball? Huh? What about that?

    How many years would you be willing to spend in last place to rebuild the farm system so you could eventually spend how many years in contention?

    How much would lettuce cost at Kroger if Bob Castellini wanted to do both of the above at the same time?

    Somebody should come up with an All-Options Team of the best players who aren't in the majors because of options.

    Why do they say a player has options when the player has no choice?

    How come nobody thinks about splitting up the righties?

    We gotta play it by the book.

    Nothin' in the book says we must split RH hitters.

    Splitting lefties makes my head hurt, especially on a team that is loaded with leftie power (JR,Dunn,Lopez)

    Actually, it's becasue LH hitters generally struggle more against LH pitchers than RH hitters do against RH pitchers.

    Maybe it's because players grow up facing more righties than lefties.
    Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
