    OK. That was the first time I ever heard Wayne Krivsky speak. I didn't expect him to be so matter-of-fact. Doesn't sound like he'd ever invite George Grande over for dinner, as it sounded like there was a huge discrepancy in IQ between the two. I have to give Grande credit for asking the hard questions.

    The REDS are in great hands.

    Why is Narron and Krivsky complaining about all the injuries, who are they? Freel's bruise on his leg, Griff needs vagisil, and a few coughs and sniffles???

I know substance abuse is not the same as using performance enhancing drugs but looking back at the situation Giambi's career could have just as easily been done and over. I'm in no way saying what Giambi did was right, but with the way other players have handled similar situations, I think alot could be learned from what he went through.

    I might disagree with that if guys like Crosby and Cormier are on the roster while Deno and Belisle rot in AAA.

    Frank Deford did a nice little piece this week on NPR comparing A-Rod's lack of fan love to Wilt's. It was pretty good.

    I was wondering about that too. The Reds are actually somewhat healthy. Freel is a little nicked up and Junior is hurt. That's normal operating conditions.

    The mom from those commercials really started to bother me last year, don't know what it was but she struck a nerve big time.

    No... I was just making a comment in Jest. Or Wishful thinking at best.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    That is also the home of the Padres. Shared facility. Nice one too.
