    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Cincinnati Reds
    Oakland A's (one day)
    Washington Nati'nals
    Philadelphia Phillies
    Atlanta Braves

    And thats just since what MARCH?!?! Did he sign back with Houston too during spring training or was that just rumored interest?

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
