    How to break the hex on the Reds

    "Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women." - Nora Ephron

    Sacrificing a reliever every night would make this team much better.

    Use octal instead?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    What? Bourbon is nearly a requirement to even watch this team right now.

    With this bullpen, they should use binary. They'd win with this line.

    Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!

    I think the Reds have a two in there somewhere!
    Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.

    Re: How to break the hex on the Reds

    Here's how I would break the hex on the REDS.

    Remember when you come to the game that kids go to live a couple hours of life they haven't lived and oldsters come to live a couple of hours of life they missed.
    Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."
