    Lack of threads = tired of Reds?

    I come here everyday to read new threads, and maybe get some info I didn't know. Lately, it seems like everyone has disappeared.

    Not a good sign for the Reds, in terms of their fans.
    Who's on first?

    I'm just waiting for the rush of offseason rumors and other stuff to begin. Until the playoffs are over its boring for this team (barring a major trade).

    I have been waiting for a topic I would like to comment about.

    And we have a winner!

    The thing is, just about every topic that is relevant, is already being covered OR has been beaten to death.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    That's kind of how I've been too lately. I've also been following the Olympic events more than the Reds games for the last two weeks so I haven't been on here as often. I'll be back now that the Olympics are over but there really isn't much to talk about besides September call ups, Louisville in the playoffs, or potential offseason trades. I'm not a fan of beating subjects to death either so I figured I would be laying low the last couple of weeks until things pick up again.

    Yeah, the olympics were exciting, but this site has always assisted me in wasting time at work, and it's letting me down! I haven't been to Cincy yet this year, and it sucks that if I DO, it's going to be in a game that doesn't count for anything. Maybe if they call up Stubbs or something, I could go check him out, but that's the most exciting thing I'll be able to see this September

    I honestly don't think things will get interesting until at least the Winter Meetings. What's Jocketty have of value that he can trade? Maybe Maloney...maybe Thompson...maybe Bailey.

    The well has sure been dry here of late... a good topic might spark a feeding frenzy.

    I started to count my yawns after I switched over to the game the other night.

    Then I got up and found something else to do.

    I think that's the deal with the Reds.

    Just counting the yawns at this point.

    Pretty much anything that can be posted at this point is just Doom and Gloom.

    But, okay fine, I'll bite. I'll put one up in a second.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Certainly you have to think Wells is one of the favorites for the heisman trophy this year. There are a lot of tailbacks who would love to have Boone and Rehring clearing the way for them. Given his second half performance last year, Boeckman is a bit of a question mark, but overall his numbers were good, and I can't believe he hasn't improved this off season.

    What more can you say about the linebacking corp? I certainly didn't expect Laurinaitis to return for his.....

    Wait, the Reds are playing the Astros this week?

    I knew that.

    depressing end to a depressing season. Nothing to discuss when you're disgusted I guess.

    With the crappy season our team has had, and the overboard arguements among fans-those who overvalued Dunn vs those that undervalues him-and the extreme feelings on each side- have just made this season, and this board, tired.
