"All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it." --BABE RUTH
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
First post-season game in 15 years for the Reds....and the guy throws a no-hitter against you.
Unreal. And that final at bat by Phillips was horrendous.
Pessimists are well informed optimists
This place use to be fun
Talk about laying an egg,
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
There it is. No hitter for Halladay as Phillips grounds out in front of the plate.
Well done, guys. Way to show up.
Great game by Halladay. Simply stunning.
I love my Reds, but you've got to give props on a no-hitter.

15 years for this?
Seriously... I am very interested in seeing what these Reds bring out for Game 2. The jitters will be long gone, and I mean, pride alone should give them a boost. The kids are growing up, learning... it's a process. I still like this young team, mostly built through the system. With a couple of key vets peppered around for flavor. And something tells me I won't have to wait another 15 years to see them in the playoffs again. It'll be OK...
now it will be even sweeter when the Reds win this series.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I'm going to go drown my sorrows and re-watch the 2005 AFC Divisional game.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
