    Doyel on the Reds

    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/story/1...sful-reds-team

    Good read!

    As for the Reds? The worm has turned, my friends. The Reds are going to win this season, and they're going to win next season, and they're going to win for a lot of years. Doesn't matter that ESPN Radio star Colin Cowherd called the team "frauds" a few weeks ago. Cowherd was wrong, dead wrong, but it's hard to blame him that much. The Reds are almost never on national television. They don't get much attention from anyone outside of the 513 area code. Well, not until recently.

    thanks, good read, though I imagine some on here will have problems with the couch references.

    Re: Doyell on the Reds

    That was a surprisingly good read; Doyel usually just tries to stir the pot.

    A lot of folks out there are taking potshots at the Reds attendance, and Doyel comes up with this gem:

    Fans aren't coming to the ballpark in masses, but that's not a fair measuring stick. Less than 20,000 fans showed up Tuesday or Wednesday, but the Reds' crowd of 19,218 on Tuesday was the seventh-biggest turnout of the 15 MLB games that night -- and on the season the Reds are outdrawing the NL West-leading Padres. The economy sucks everywhere, but the weather is better in San Diego. Cincinnati does what it can to support this team. It always has.

    National media seems genuinely happy to see a fresh face possibly entering the playoffs, especially in a baseball town like Cincinnati.

    That's a good quote. It seems like the media likes to jump on the small market teams when they win by taking potshots at their attendance.

    I don't think the Reds will have problems selling out playoff games like the Braves have had over the years.

    To me, the "Dunn and Jr. are lazy" canards ruined what otherwise would've been a decent article.

    All the sudden it's we? In his past few articles about the Bengals I'm pretty sure he didn't use that word.

    His bandwagon shenanigans aside, it's a good article.

    I'd love that. Would also love a Reds/Rays world series. It's got to be everything the major networks have nightmares about.

    If they're healthy enough. Hamilton's out with a sore knee again. He's had two cortisone shots already this year, which is usually the max during a season (at least according to the article I was reading ... I'm not a Dr.). But he may get another.

    It would be much easier for me to delight in a trouncing of the Rangers.

    I agree 100%. Decent article, but I didn't like the potshots at Griffey and Dunn.
