    Dear Bronson

    I remember when you first got traded and was heartbroken because you loved being in Boston so much. That was understandable. You came from a winning organization a year from winning a World Series. You played to packed houses every night. You and the other players fed off the enthusiasm of the fans in Fenway. You had a great offense behind you. You got a lot of national attention.

    I am sure you still miss Boston but it seems like you have made the best of it here. You have run into some tough luck lately. Sometimes you did not pitch well, other times you had the bullpen blow games for you or the offense did not score enough runs for you. That is all in the past. The things you missed in Boston, you have in Cincinnati now. Winning team? Check. Good offense? Check. Packed houses? Check and check the last two nights. Enthusiastic fans? You got em and, yes, you are still getting national attention.

    This is as close to the Yankees Red Sox rivalry as you are going to get. I believe you think of yourself as a big game pitcher. Well, brother, they do not get any bigger than today. No excuses today. This team has some momentum on their side. Show the Cardinals that the Reds are a force to be reckoned with just like the Sox finally showed the Yankees that they were for real. Remember who you played after you were done with the Yankees that year? None other than the Cards. Most of these guys were on that team you swept to win that ring.

    It is time to step it up a notch. Be that big game pitcher people think you are. Carry this team like you did earlier in the season. You may not have figured on this when you were traded but you are in a pennant race now. Show the fans why the Reds traded for you.

    Your buddy,

    Chip R

    P.S. For the love of God, get Yadi Molina and these other stiffs out! Scott Spezio?!

    I think I love you.

    Not in a gay way, but in a manly sort of Viking way. Or something.

    Just kidding about that whole I love you thing. But seriously, pound on the Cardinals. They've earned it.

    If the playoffs started today, the Reds are in and the Red Sox are out. CLEARLY Arroyo was their x-factor (said half-sarcastically, and half not, as the Sox really could have used him this year)...

    Dear Bronson

    In your previous life as Jack Armstrong, the Reds won the World Series. If that happens this year, we won't complain.
