    Last Night I Dreamed I Was Starting at GABP

    Starting PITCHER - for some reason, even though I've only ever played 2b.

    But here's the kicker: in the afternoon, before the game, I logged on to RZ only to find threads complaining about my minor-league numbers and generally calling me another warm-bodied soft-tosser (which, I suppose, I would be if I started for the Reds). I recall one poster even calling me "the next Jimmy Anderson in a thread.

    The dream didn't last long enough to see me start; it only lasted long enough for me to close out my browser.

    Thanks, RedsZoners.

    I don't know why, but that's dang funny!

    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

    I can't believe we're using a spot on the 40 man roster for Keystone12. He's only 22 but his minor league numbers are terrible and he's not going to get any better starting in the majors. Cut your losses, Wayne, he wasn't worth giving up Dunn for.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    And to think we gave up Adam Dunn to get him!

    A converted second baseman? Geesh, probably another soft tosser...Sounds like the next Jimmy Anderson.

    This move is worse than 'The Trade'. I'm not spending another dime on this team until he's off the roster.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Keystone12 couldn't carry Jim Coombs jock.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Really? I thought he could do all the "little things".

    Hey, we all dream of being pitchers. The ultimate control.

    But, I thought chicks dug the long-ball.

    These responses crack me up.

    :dunn: "I gotta admit, I can't seem to figure out that Keystone12 guy's curveball!"

    If WK called me and asked me to come down to have a look at my arm, I might think the Reds FO had a few screws loose... but then again, the Reds once ran Josias Manzanillo out on that mound...


    either way, I bet I could whoop Brian Meadows' ass!

    Last night I dreamed 6 numbers under 50.
    That was after the lotto drawing.
