    I'd agree if someone in the lineup wasn't hitting well, but most seem to be of late, even AGon.

    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

    Things just keep getting interesting ...

    The Cardinals have already lost today, 2-1, at Houston. St. Louis is now 64-66, and the Reds now trail the Cardinals by 4.5 games. The Reds sorely need to take care of business and grab a win tonight, and if they can do that then they'll move to within 4 games of the Cardinals heading into the three game series tomorrow night.

    No matter what happens in tonight's Cubs/Brewers game, if the Reds can win tonight then they'll be guaranteed to gain ground on two of the three teams they're chasing.

    Memo to Matt Belisle: You charted the pitches last night, watched the master at work, even told him you hated him because he made it so easy. Listen, Grasshopper, you have it within you. Use the force, etc. etc. - pitch a heckuva game!

    That's sort of like mixing metaphors, isn't it?

    Start batters off with a strike he must.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Better than the usual problems we have....you know, bad pitching, 4 guys who aren't hitting....bad managing....that kind of thing.

    Fear leads to anger. Home runs does anger lead to!
    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

    Do or do not... There is no try.

    Chicks dig the longball, young Matt. But the ones you should be paying attention to really go wild over a guy who can finish what he starts.
