    1982 and 1983 weren't rebuidling years - it was simply poor farm system drafts, the inability to attact or use free-agency, while holding onto Concepcion and Bench and Driessen.

    The trades of Seaver, Foster, & Griffey brought absolutely nothing in return.

    Dick Wagner was going to show the world that Bob Howsam 1968 was right. Boy, did he show them.

    Those Reds were also owned by the Williams Brothers who believed the Carl Lindner way of operating a baseball club.

    I was glad to hear that Milton is A-OK and was ready to go for this one.

    That's got to be the best effort of the year to prove a point. Amazing. Great idea to get the true expectations of this year.

    Gotta watch what you say around these parts.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    Be careful with the veiled personal attacks, redfanalways, or the hall monitor will get you.

    I fail to see the hypocrisy. They "competed" in the Central up till mid-September.

    They didn't "win" the Central?

    Where am I off the mark?

    Please show me.

    I KNEW this would be a weakened Central, and it was; no mystery there they could "compete" in it, or that Wayne isn't better than O'Brien (come on, I'd be better than O'Brien).

    In your ceaseless effort to prove that opinions change, woy, you just proved that I was incredibly prescient. Bully for you.

    I'm not out to prove anything, actually I just stumbled on it and found it ironic.

    Bully for me, I guess... I'm easily amused.

    However, baseball is a hard game and building a baseball team isn't an out of the box process or something whose burden is unencumbered by one spin around the block in the new GM's desk, you're right opinions do change, but building a baseball team is a much more arduous then most want to admit and that unlike opinions, is not changing anytime soon.

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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
