    Shocking No Respect on ESPN

    On BBTN they asked Brantley and Orestes Destrades (sp?) who can catch the Cards.

    JB: Astros
    OD: Brewers

    Not even a word was said about the Reds.

    Is coming from 1 game back really catching?

    Anyone who says Astro's is nuts in my opinion. Call me when they score a run. I think the Brewers can. I don't think the Reds can unless we deal to get some bullpen. I don't blame them at all for not mentioning us. If we pass them for good, it is because they fell behind us in the standings, or we dealt to get some pen.

    Saw that. Brantley even admitted the Astros don't look as if they care when they step on the field yet he still picked them. Now enough about the NL Central, let's get back to important matters - the Yankees and Red Sox.

    E-SPiN is beyond pathetic.

    Playing .500 ball and gaining ground on the Cards during an 8 game losing streak does not qualify as "catching".

    Really?

    Going from 5.5 back to 1 back in less then 2 weeks isn't catching?

    Our last 10 games we are 6-4.

    I think is either the Reds or the Brewers- whichever team can shore up the bullpen.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Cards going 2-8 previous 10 games and the Reds going 5-5 as of June 28 is what I am refering to. If the Reds would have gone 6-4 in the same period they would be tied for first place.

    Then they wouldn't mention the Brews, theirs is worse somehow.

    Astros can't compete without another big bat in their lineup. I hope the Reds pay attention to the no respect and thrive off it. Narron needs to use this to light a fire under the team.. maybe get a little adrenaline going (he might be doing that already I dont know)... just an idea

    We don't need these stinkin broadcasters giving the team any credit,i'd rather them eat their words and show what morons they really are.A couple arms in the pen if available and the Reds will be serious contenders.It's frustrating to see Arroyo pitch a good game and have the bullpen blow the win for him.

    Speaking of ESPN... Boston vs. NY Mets last night on ESPN. The night before the two teams were on ESPN2. One game on... no problem. Two nights in a row, IN JUNE, is a disgusting love-affair.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
