    Below my USER NAME it says "Contend in September....Please?" The only exciting thing that happened was LaRue's extra inning HR against the Padres.

    Yeah, losing sucks. Losing for 6 years in a row sucks. I'll agree with you there. But i'm a glass-half-full guy. Maybe it's naiveity. Maybe I enjoy the history of the sport, and I enjoy the past more. Maybe because my dad and I enjoy it together. It's might sound hokey and very midwestern-1950's like, but its still a game and its the Reds and its going to the park and all that mumbo-jumbo.

    You live in a town of monumental collapse and continued mediocrity. Think of those Phillie fans, who really aren't any closer than the Reds have. And they have TWO World Series Winners 65 years apart.

    Everytime I come close to getting over the heartbreak of the season I remember Castellini's letter to the players before the west coast swing and that really depresses me.

    Please open up your wallet this off season Mr.Castellini and make the Reds real NL contenders in 07.

    Trust me, I have a full life. Hobbies, family, avocation, career. The whole bit. But I love my Reds.

    And Philly is my home, but not my psychological/sports home. The sports fans here earn their filthy stripes. I don't truck with them, and I genuinely don't care.

    Lohse was his own worst enemy in the 2nd, walking two and allowing four hits, but we see so many teams who have that great defense and make plays like the one on Denorfia that it must be the norm. Our shortstop is 36 yeras old and really didn't move that well at 26. Our 2nd baseman looks flashy at times, but never (rarely) makes the web gem play, so what does that all tell us? Save Edwin and Phillips and put the rest of the infield on the bench? I don't know. This is very depressing.

    Dude - its all in the delivery -

    But my responses are a bunch of frustrations that have someone just types something based on someone elses' thought who beats the same horse over and over and over - I have attacked some people personally, and it's wrong, and I'm waiting for the warn button to get highlighted.

    But again, there are other people with other opinions - and they should be respected as such. This isn't some Kum-by-a festival, but there has to be SOME type of reasonable discussion.

    You don't get 1100 rep points on accident - so obviously you have that respect.

    I'm flipping between the Reds and MNF.

    I'm here though.....

    Eh. It's not just me. I see a lot of guys and gals getting called out for their "fanhood" by people who have only been members of this site for 4 or 5 months. It sucks. And it's not just for me. Heck, if it were just me, I probably wouldn't say anything.

    It has nothing to do with rep and everything to do with decency.

    Dude - I'm with you on that - I wouldn't know what to do if Bil DeWitt decided that San Diego was a great place for a baseball team in 1965 and Frank Dale didn't step to the plate so to speak. I might not even have liked baseball. But, I'm cast with what I have been given and I'm glad the Reds are here to enjoy. I'm still a Reds fan and the last few years have sucked.

    FCB - even as flawed as they were this spring - admit it - it WAS fun until around August 28th.

    Wow - you really have assimilated well. You don't care about the Philly sports teams. They obviously don't either

    So here we are in the bottom of the 4th, down 0-4, and we have our 5-6-7 hitters coming up. For some reason, the combo of Edwin, Ross and Denorfia don't excite me. Oswalt has been hittable, but the ball always finds itself in someone's glove.

    I come for the witty banter during these games, but tonight just seems like drudgery. But I'll hang around for a while and hope the Reds can pull out a win and put smiles back on everyone's faces.

    So, flip the coin the other way - there have been times that newer posters have not been given the chance to fly and sometimes they've been cross-checked by some veteran poster. Who defends those people? Someone has to - if its a reasonable comment.

    Sorry to blow your time here FCB - but it sure beats Long Distance Rates.

    That's what makes the Reds' failures year after year after year after year so brutal.
    We should have been Braves fans. We could have at least watched them play slightly into October and then lose.

    I have to admit that a lot of arrogance lives here and sometimes the criticism is a little overboard. In fact, it's become much worse in the last three weeks. I've seen folks jumped on unmercifly over as little as a criticism of Narron that we all know is the truth or a theory that is opinion only. The constant harping on Griffey and Dunn is another example. The great love for no hit big hustle guys is legend. But most of all it's gotten nasty. It's easy to be nasty to someone you've never seen and will probably never meet, but it's cowardly too. And a lot of guys are very brave in front of a keyboard.

    Fair enough. I try not to do that. But I'm sure I have and I've seen others do it.
