    Chat is a much different animal than the game thread. I really can't describe whether it's the format, the people, or that GAC is such a wonderfull human being. But for some reason it's just...different. So IMO it's harder to "clutter" or get too far off topic to the point of distraction.

    Of course the nature of chat will change if suddenly 40 people are in there every night for the entire game. Will that be good or bad? Hard to say since that's never really happened before (at least in the year I've been here).

    But chat seems to work better with more people, so it's an experiment worth trying out, IMO.

    I thought the game threads stayed more on point when there was someone doing play-by-play. Just sayin.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    In a simple answer, yes. Rosecrans' blog is kind of like the John Stewart to Redszone's Brian Williams.

    I think it would be nice if Reds Live were allowed to have a gamethread.

    In the interest of fairness.. I think Sun Deck should have a game thread, and if it gets out of hand, it should be closed. However, if what you guys have said is true and we are "getting better" with our post's then it wont get closed.

    7:26 PM on a game night, bottom 1st. Chat users: 1 (me, who has since left). Game Thread viewers: 34.

    There's three in there now if you'd like to join us.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    The number of folks in chat always grows as the game wears on.
