"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~ Mark Twain
Nothing better than a young team winning with enthusiasm. Well, there are somethings better, but not that many.
Brantley just said he got a bloody nose out that!
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
They bloodied his nose. Take it easy it on the kid.
I rarely make it to game threads anymore, but wanted to make sure everyone was still breathing after that 9th inning. Sure enough, I open the thread and Janish wins it.
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
Ryan Freel has a terrible high kick. And speaking of Freel and high kicks, why is Freel trying to high kick both Janish and Bako there?
Kevin Gregg and Jason Marquis brought back vivid memories of the Lost Decade.
Kevin Gregg: DFA'd May 11, 2015
Jason Marquis: DFA'd June 5, 2015
The youth movement is on.
24 Years and Counting...
Man they really needed that and what a great way to start a career for Paul Janish!
The new GT Reds are 3-0 with a few heart attacks tossed in.
I think it was Freel's knee to the face at the end that bloodied his nose.
