    Who has the current longest playoff draughts besides the Reds? The Pirates, the Expos/Nats...who else?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    4 Great ones in a row... He is an Ace. The Reds rotation is in ungodly good shape in 2011.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Holy crap I just saw Mike Lincoln on the bench.

    Interesting. Volquez is just missing that "it" factor that seperates good pitchers from great pitchers. But good lord his stuff was good tonight.

    They would be a good minor league club.

    It'd be nice to see Heisey bring back some of that PH magic here.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    They have a wicked minor league system. Could be Redsish in 2 years. Of course, in the AL, that wins you about 78 games.
