    Regardless, I think the back-to-back tandem of the lifeless Nationals and erratic Pirates, coming off our own yearly sleepwalk through the early West Coast trip, likely positions us nicely for a brief bounceback over the next week. However, with this poorly conceived roster, Narron's poor line-up design (sans EE's RH bat), Krivsky's bench and bullpen construct blindspots etc... it's hard to imagine this team playing with the degree of consistency required to ever see the north side of .500 again this year (much less by the 4th).

    I know it's a cliche, but...if the Reds look past the Nats, they're crazy. This team should take nothing for granted. They are failing on every conceivable level right now.

    Agree 100%. There were a couple serries last year IIRC where the Reds were playing the Pirates or whomever and should have crushed them to gain ground on the Cards. Only to get swept, or lose the serries.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    Looks as if things are starting out smashingly tonight as well. I'm not normally a sky is falling type of guy but it's safe to say at this point I'm dodging airplanes and cumulus clouds.

    Well - I'm watching the 1st inning of the opening game vs the Nats, and BA looks terrible, the defense is out there stumbling and bungling (loved that Dunn backhanded whatever it was), and we're down 4-0.

    What I want to know Ed - once you have to change your name, what happens if we can trick you in to saying it backwards?

    How fun to watch Kearns and The Meat light up our best pitcher.


    Thanks Wayne. Been another great year so far.

    Really just tired of trying to find positives in a pathetic sea of baseball butchery.

    I'll be happy if the Nats don't clean their clocks.

    I'm predicting 18-22, Edskin changes his name, and RFS takes him to the senior special at Denny's (or perhaps IHOP if he decides to splurge) to celebrate.

    Edskin, you're a genius.

    Krono, when you quote yourself like that you cause a ripple in the space/time continuum.
