    meanwhile the closer is thinking about the next fill in "Unchained."

    How much to send these Guitar Hero games to the pitching staffs of all the other teams in the NL Central?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I love Trevor Hoffman's attitude -- enter to "Hell's Bells" like you're going to blow people away, then frustrate batters with changeups and 80 mph "fastballs."

    Let me jump in my wayback machine to show you the horrors of "Atari Thumb."
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Hey, I like DDR...

    Ah... anyway, I long suspected that Kearns' mysterious thumb ailment came from spending too much time on the Playstation w/ Dunn.

    That's only slightly more painful than "Pong Crotch."

    Although in retrospect, maybe I wasn't playing that game the right way...

    What about Legend of Zelda Degenerative Bench-Ass? I suffered from that ailment for several weeks in 1989.


    Oh my, and I thought I was the only one! And in the same year as well! About 3 weeks for me.

    Obviously, the game's guitar does not translate to actual instrument playing. But have you seen the game and it's song selections?

    That game ROCKS and it is straight up addicting. Blimpie, Jr. should not be suprised to see that one wrapped nicely under the Festivus Pole in a few weeks....

    It's not like the old days when guys suffered repetitive strain injuries while flicking the spinner on All Star Baseball...

    Guitar Hero is a ton of fun, any game that allows you to "rock out" to Judas Priest, Motorhead and Hendrix is all good!!!!!!!

    I have no idea what any of you are talking about. And yet somehow I understand that this thread encapsulates all of baseball fandom.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
