    Random Thoughts

    Jocketty turned this team around like Rockford in a Firebird.

    You mean it wasn't Jocketty? Who knew. We're all geniuses now.

    Ryan Freel makes things happen, and some of them are good.

    It's kind of early to be playing the spoiler against first-place teams.

    Jikes, what's with Janish?

    "Win now" feels good while it's happening.

    Griffey has gone from the next Willie Mays to the old Willie Mays.

    So where's the mean that Volquez will regress to?

    Maybe if the Reds went east around the world they wouldn't realize they were on a West Coast trip.

    Also, has anyone noticed that the Reds are undefeated since the return of the RedsZone game threads??

    I wonder if Jocketty has noticed Jay Bruce's OPS for the month of May is 1.310?

    Everyone praying for rain worked the last time...let's try again. Harang, Volquez, Arroyo, Cueto, pray for rain!

    BCubb, you've outdone yourself with these. Great job, as always.

    As for the Rockford reference, I'm sure that sailed over a bunch of heads. Speaking of, Rockford was way ahead of his time by having an answering machine in the mid-70s. We didn't get one until 1990. Come to think of it, maybe we were just way behind the times.

    Doesn't Jocketty get credit for "not screwing it up", much like Wayne got credit for Bruce, Votto, Homer, and Ceuto

    In all seriousness, this has been a very enjoyable 6 game win streak, but this is probably still a sub 500 team at the end of the year.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
