    I Love It

    My last two days have sucked, and it's because of the Cincinnati Reds.

    How awesome is that? Back to back days in August and the Reds are good enough that what they do actually has an effect on my life. With the exception of maybe 2006, I've never been able to say since I've become a Reds fan.

    We've played HORRIBLE the last two days, especially today. The Cardinals are a good team, but we've let the stage get to us the last two days. It's clear that our young guys weren't ready for primetime, and that's fine.

    Think of how many guys on the roster right now have never been in a series anywhere near this big:
    Cueto
    Fisher
    Leake
    Ondrusek
    Smith
    Volquez
    Hanigan
    Francisco
    Bruce
    Votto
    Janish
    Stubbs
    Heisey

    and you can even make an argument for Bray and Phillips who were here in 2006.

    That's 15 of the 25 guys on the roster who've never been here before. Can you blame them for letting it to get into their head a little bit?

    I absolutely love what Brandon Phillips did. He wasn't going to take the Cardinals crap, nor should he. Sure, he's played like crap, but he'll get his hits, he'll be fine.

    Going back and watching the brawl, I just felt proud to be a Reds fan. Watching Phillips, Rolen, and even Dusty getting into with the CARDINALS was awesome to see.

    We've a doormat for far too long. This team showed me today it has the right attitude to win this division. I promise you that you'll see a better preformance against the Cardinals in the Central.

    For all the trash talking done, for how bad we've looked the last two days, for all the crap I've seen from the Cardinals fans, if we win tomorrow the Cardinals are getting on a plane in second place.

    Take a deep breath, everybody relax, and lets go get them tomorrow.

    I'm glad that the Reds have some fire in them. I loved seeing this. I loved seeing Rolen back up Dusty Baker and take out like 5 guys. I just want to see Gomes and Nix take on the whole 25 man roster plus Tony. I love how Brandon Phillips isn't going to take any more crap. Regardless of the two loses I love this. Makes me wish I could be a part of the Reds right now just so I could give Carpenter a quick shot to the mouth.

    If I was sitting in those front rows last night, I'm afraid I would be in jail by now... lol And, you all would be talking about that crazy fan that was throwing hay makers through the netting at Priss.... I would of atleast tried to hit him a few times....

    For all of what has went on the past 2 days... You win today and its moot...

    Re: I Love It

    I loved it too...felt sort of bad about it until coming here this morning.

    I loved Votto saying he hated the Cubs too. Glad these guys have some loyalty to the fans and the team AND THAT INCLUDES DUSTY...really liked it when Dusty went right back at LaRussa.

    Ya know, people will say this is inexcusable, bad and a shame...not so, this IS BASEBALL...The right way.

    BTW, great players and great teams give a damn.
