nope hopefully everyone realizes this...
Hard to argue such a complete, thorough and concise, well-laid out, articulate and grammatically correct diatribe like that.
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
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
Wouldn't have argued that before, unfortunately now instead of needing one good bat, we're in need of two. Hope everything is alright with Votto, should be founding something out soon.
I grow weary of all the hand-wringing nonsense I see on this site. This, is the only sensible thru and thru thread I can find here. Yes, this is Joey Votto's team, if he can be healthy, let's hope. In the meantime... Hey, are there actually knowledgeable realists on the "elite" Old Red Guard side of this site? (Dunno, since my lineage must be suspect, so I don't even bother to check it out). Otherwise, I'm done.

Maybe tonight against the Phillies was a chance for Brandon Phillips to show that this is his team too. He started incredibly cold, but is starting to warm up with the weather. His huslte as of late is nice to see. I have bashed him on here in the past, but he seems to be focused on taking the load off of Votto and trying to help this team win while he is gone.
WE DON'T, WE DON'T, WE DON'T MESS AROUND HEY!
If Joey gets healthy, this team will be back.
I was holding out for McDonald as sleeper MVP... :
