    I think it goes back to the Chapman signing -- finding a way to get a deal done even though we weren't in position to write the biggest up-front check, because we wanted him that badly. That was creative. So was trading for a veteran (Rolen) when we were technically supposed to be sellers, not buyers. I think Jocketty will exhaust every possibility to get the guy he wants at the deadline, whoever that is. I just hope we're in position for it to matter.
    For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible

    I firmly believe that this town will turn out if the Reds continue to play this way. They have shown up for the Astros so far and this team is just fun to watch right now. We want a winner so bad it isn't funny.

    I do however believe there is still a lot of folks out there waiting for the swoon that seems to happen every year a little bit before the Allstar break. If we get over that hump, I think it will turn the rest of the skeptics our way.
