    WOW.

    A vast majority of tickets for any particular game are sold before the year. Did you think Reds-Dbacks would be a must see game in February?

    The people who have the cash and the flexibility to just attend a Reds game whenever they want are a limited pool. That limited pool was already tapped once in the past weekend when they went to the Reds/Pirates game.

    I'd guess every contending team has sold the same number of tickets in the past two months including the Reds.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    Haha, yea, it never fails. When The Cardinals are at home, they shave off earned runs left and right. He's gonna have one of the most artificial sub-3 ERAs in history if he finishes with one.

    Does Yonder play Winter Ball over the offseason specifically to get work in LF or will he be gone before Spring Training?

    Btw...if we manage to hold on for the win tonight...it insures us our first winning season in about 76 years I think. Or maybe it just feels that long?

    I don't think Logan heard my one request. 4 pitch walk.
