    That wind at Wrigley can be pretty tough.

    I wouldn't say I am rooting against him.

    But I'm most definatley not rooting for him.

    Nightly Patterson rant:

    Why oh why must we continue to endure the first pitch hacking, sub .200 batting , and .228 OBP of COREY F. PATTERSON?

    Re: Reds vs Cubs 8/19/08

    I noticed on the graphic on TV that the Reds are 3-7 in the lasy 10 games. Then I looked at the schedule and realized that I was at all three of those wins (and only one of the losses).

    Re: Reds vs Cubs 8/19/08

    Why on earth would I root for a player on the Reds to do poorly?

    I'm no big fan of CPat, but it's not his fault he can't hit. He doesn't make out the lineup.

    You think his effort level is suspect?

    I don't. I just don't think he can hit.

    I don't think you are being unreasonable at all. The problem is that every footfall and every mistake at the plate that Bruce has only goes to prove that he is only 21 years old and it will happen. Youth is not the only answer to the Reds' problems. Young players make mistakes and make poor judgments at times. He'll be fine, but he will have his "brain fade" moments too.

    I've been rooting against him and Bako since day one.

    Re: Reds vs Cubs 8/19/08

    I can't really root against them, mostly out of respect for the Reds uniform.

    But when they stroll to the plate, I generally expect failure. With a chance to score runs, or a game winning situation and CPatt/Bako at the plate I have no hope of any success. I've become numb to their super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I agree, but what's even more confusing is that he has something like a .260 lifetime average, so what happened? I just don't understand.

    I root for failure in the hopes that they will ultimately be removed from the team. How they are still here, is just beyond me.

    I missed it on TV, but how did Soto triple? Gameday say Patterson deflected it. Was it a ball he should have caught?

    I see these guys as people, not just images on the TV screen.

    They are young men living out their dreams, playing the game we all love on the highest level available on earth.

    I don't see them as commodities.

    Maybe. But if he caught it, it would have been a very nice play.
