    August 7, 2006: "You blew it, Wayne. Up yours."

    Is this the team that took two of three from the Braves, or was that the Mexico City Reds?

    I know it's against the law, but if you lose by more than a forfeit you should forfeit that day's pay.

    Maybe the NL wild card should go to the next best AL team.

    Let's hope the despair of a horrible game fades as quickly as the momentum of an amazing comeback.

    Maybe we should back off and let Jerry Narron go back to making out lineups that make no sense.

    Who wants to call Bob Castellini tonight and find out if he's getting any sleep?

    Anybody else pitching with an arm that needs season-ending surgery?

    Maybe the Cardinals have another eight-game losing streak in them.

    Caveat Emperor should be the play by play man in "Major League IV."

    You should have stopped there, you couldn't have possibly topped that one.

    Line up that meets RedsZone's approval usually = horrible offense.

    Once the lineup is posted this afternoon the usual "I would have done it this way" will resume.

    It's a vicous circle.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    And when one looks at yesterday's lineup....

    1. R Freel, RF
    2. A Dunn, LF
    3. K Griffey Jr., CF
    4. E Encarnacion, 3B
    5. S Hatteberg, 1B
    6. B Phillips, 2B
    7. J Valentin, C
    8. R Clayton, SS
    9. E Ramirez, P

    That's a pretty solid lineup (1 thru 6 spots) that I bet met with most everyone's approval.

    Yet they not only got trounced, but shut down by the likes of a Jeff Weaver!

    My subjective opinion is - it was just one of those games. It happens.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I agree. Caveat, I enjoyed your pbp for the time that I tuned in. (Which wasn't too long last night.)
