    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I doubt he gigs tonight unless it's in Colorado.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    That's not legit is it?

    Cincinnati may not have much of a baseball history?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Perhaps it just me, but I'm getting tired of hearing about how great it was playing for the Red Sox. I take it as a backhanded slam and the Reds aren't good enough for him.

    Oh, and this made me laugh.

    Cincinnati may not have much of a baseball history, but it does have one thing going for it. A little World Series champion named Bronson Arroyo. A little Asylum Records recording artist named Bronson Arroyo.
    The Reds don't have much baseball history? Seems like the little World Series champion doesn't know much.

    When he said it, it was like a light bulb went off in my head. Cincinnati may not have much of a baseball history, but it does have one thing going for it. A little World Series champion named Bronson Arroyo. A little Asylum Records recording artist named Bronson Arroyo.
    ??????????

    LOL...... not much else to say about that one.

    Probably the opinion of more New Englanders than you'd think. Nothing worthwhile or historic has occurred outside of NY and Boston.

    Bronson seems like a bright guy.

    I'm sure if he digs deep enough, he might actually find that there's a decent bit of baseball history along the Ohio River.

    Edit: boy, that Anna Benson sure has a way with words. Her last update ain't for the faint of heart...

    I think his musical taste is the saddest part of the blog.

    I don't care what he thinks as long as he keeps pitching like this.

    There's Selig's. I think it's safe to say these "blogs" are not real.

    I'm going to label this Satire since I wasn't bright enough to dig around and find it out myself, I'm sure others might possibly maybe be in the same boat.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
