    An idea for the mods

    How about giving Josh a special forum all his own like the gamethreads or minor leagues gets-at least until everyone gets comfortable with the idea of him?

    Re: An idea for the mods

    It might help to separate the man-love from the discussion. I'm happy he's producing, but sometimes it seems to be over the top. Let's wait until he gets through the league once before anointing him the second coming of the Babe (though I hear he does have a helluva fastball ). Lots of guys have great Aprils and then regress into the back of their baseball cards. Just ask Chris Shelton who had 8 HRs this time last year. I have no reason to believe that Hamilton will do so, but there's also no good reason to believe he can keep up this torid pace for 150 more games.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm as excited as the next guy, but it's all a little pre-mature in my mind. It's a great story and it's nice to have something to cheer for, but let's wait a few months before going crazy.

    I've got an idea too. Alas, we have rules that prevent me from expressing it. Only thing that separates us from the savages, rules are. Well, that and microbreweries.

    Re: An idea for the mods

    So we should open a forum so no one has to read about something positive happening for the Reds and everyone can get back to their cynical and at times incessant bashing of Junior, strikeouts, Narron, and 'The Trade'?

    Sorry Josh is interrupting the 'fun' for everyone.

    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

    Sure.

    And while we're at it, let's also create forums for "Dunn's Ks", "Junior's Suckitude/Retirement Party", "Narron's Idiocy", "Our Bullpen is Crap", "Eric Milton's HR Fest", "Freel's Dirty Shirts" and "Narron Hates On EdE".

    I'm sure there could be others, but while we're talking about segmenting the board, these are the ones I came up with off the top of my head.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Re: An idea for the mods

    That wasn't the point, I don't think. The point is that it's being over done. Every day there are more and more threads opened about the amazingness he exhibits on a nightly basis where the existing threads could be used just as easily to spew superlatives (which even Thom has proclaimed to be running out of).

    I think you'll find that I don't particularly enjoy the incessant bashing either, but I also think a little perspective is in order.

    Oh please.

    What ISN'T "over done" on this board? There isn't a single topic that doesn't get drug to the ground, beaten senseless, buried, dug up, and shot again.

    And just so I'm clear: we're complaining about TOO MANY compliments being given to a player?

    Give me a break.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Some might argue that the Reds cheerleaders don't get enough props on the zone....

    The cheerleaders are the second best thing about sitting behind the home dugout.
