    I'm here. Where are all the "real" real fans?
    I'm here, but I have kids to put to bed, stories to read, a wife to chat with and other household duties to put to rest before I can concentrate on a baseball game.

    I'm so glad that I am a real fan.

    Also, it must pain you to be so right all the time, FCB. I don't know how you can live with yourself.

    Not like it matters at this point with Lohse. He pitched well back in August when it mattered, and we managed to not win those games.

    Just go easy on the personal attacks in the future. That's all I'm saying. If you disagree with me, fine. But don't say I don't know what I'm talking about.

    Denorfia actually hit that ball pretty well. Unfortunately, Everett is a great fielder and made a pretty good play.

    Yep, it's September.

    Can you believe that 30 days ago, this team was in a pennant race. It was a flawed team in a down year league wise, but it was in a pennant race.

    When you acquire junk, you get junk. They all come up and have a good first appearance (except Magic) and everyone says they are the next world beater. Then you see why the ERA with the former team was 7.85--just like tonight. One of the worst offensive teams in the NL score 4 in the 2nd why our superstar (Deno) hits into a double play. The Reds ae doomed.
    Deno hit the ball sharply up the middle, great play by Everett. Should have been a hit. Of course ground balls with men on first and third are not optimal.

    This is really almost impossible to watch.

    I'll hatchet bury if you will, but sometimes you need to give people the opportunity to express their opinions in their way. You don't have to be right all the time you know. It gets boring.

    Well, now he deserves to be ripped. Rip away, rip away.

    Watching this team collapse time and time again is almost certainly shortening my life. It is painful. No lie. Losing is the absolute worst thing on earth.

    And that's the other thing, FCB. There has to be some balance of sheer fan and sheer narcissism. I'll admit sometimes there are people who bring up fantastic points and there are some that are plain headscratchers.

    Sure it might not be the answers you are looking for or even your opinion - but you don't have to dismiss the sentence with the wave of your hand.

    Respect people and they'll respect you.

    I'm combative, admittedly, but I avoid personal insults against other posters. I really make an honest effort to do that.
