    am i'm being paranoid or....

    has anyone else noticed during baseball highlights that if a pitcher is being spotlighted he always seems to be striking out a Cincy hitter or a spotlighted hitter is always taking (insert your fav reds pitcher here)deep?

    earlier tonight I saw some footage of Billy Wagner striking out Larkin!?! damn he's had a few K's since that hasn't he?

    This prompted me to look up Eddie's numbers.

    That was quite a power surge he had in 1986 at age 31...

    Hey 15...is Wagner staying in your basement or is he going to be getting his own place? Man, I've always rooted for 'ole Billy....too bad.

    I've noticed this too. And in NFL highlights, it always seems like the highlights are of players beating the Bengals. Maybe we are just conditioned as Cincinnati sports fans to expect failure.

    Don't really have a basement. Just a crawl space with the furnace, water heater, and a little storage room.

    (Given the flooding this fall, I'm A-OK with no basement...)

    Billy could move out to the shed, though. It's a spacious 12' x 12' structure, complete with 'lectric...and a beer fridge!

    Bad teams are more often on the wrong end of highlights. I think you're seeing a symptom...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
