    1-3

    No. Not the result. Just 1-3. If you know how to read a score book, you'll understand why.

    Thrown out by the pitcher @ 1B after he tries to lay down a bunt?

    I tend to agree with you. Junior's best years in Cincinnati were while he wore his father's #30. I also think that he didn't do enough with the Reds to warrant his number being retired, but I expect that it probably will be--at least unofficially for a time, and then eventually officially.

    If Dusty makes Willy do pushups when he pops out instead of putting the ball on the ground, I might actually forgive this franchise of all its ills. And if Josh Roenicke starts wearing thick glasses and shaving weird designs in his hair, then we might really be onto something...

    That's something all Reds fans should rally around for 2009.
