    Did you notice ... Harris

    He is playing SS tonight for the Eggs and has a 3 run HR. I wonder when that Castro guy will get off the bench.?

    When a LHP pitcher is going the Reds bench of RH hitters is made up of Castro, Moeller and Valentin. Sure hope the Reds don't need any hits off the bench.

    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I've never seen it anywhere else other then here.

    On Harris, I didn't think he was ever going to be much of anything, but I'd sure like him on this team over Moeller and Castro.

    Um, okay. First time I've heard that one. I'm not sure what makes "Eggs" easier to type than "Rays".
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I've heard "Eggs" used. Think it has something to do with deviled eggs.

    I lived in Tampa for a year and a half and never heard anyone refer to them as the "Eggs".

    They are either referred to as "that team that I hope beats the Yankees tonight" or "that team that I hope beats the Red Sox tonight".

    Ah - that might explain it, then.
    I admit, I am rather unfamiliar with the name, as well.

    I thought it was because one of their jerseys, with the "devil ray," the circular, body part of the devil ray looked sort of like an egg.

    Seabass? Eggs? C'mon, now I think we're just making stuff up.
    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!

    It took me months to figure that out.

    Never heard of "the Eggs".

    I much prefer "The Lucifers", or perhaps "The Black Princes."

    Even "The Beezelbubs" would be an improvement over "Eggs." This has ESPN smarminess written all over it...
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
