Votto for MVP
A bit premature, but anyone think that one of Volquez/Cueto will be traded for another "piece" this winter.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
Votto for MVP
Halliday pitched great...I've gone from celebrating last week to trying to drink away any knowledge of the game I just watched. :all_cohol
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
I'd rather lose a game 1 no-no to the runaway Cy Young winner than give up 3 in the 9th to lose.
Yes, trade Cueto, Alonso, Francisco.....find a horse or an all-star left fielder (brilliant points on Cueto woy)
Put the best team on the field for the rest of the series, please.
Even if they lose Friday....this team can come back to win it. I've made the mistake of counting the 2010 Reds out a few to many times.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
Admittedly, I spent most of the last 2 innings just laughing at the futility of it all.
Only positive to come out of it: this Reds team responds to crap situations better than any team I've followed. Blow big leads? No worries. Get swept by the Cardinals after running your mouths? Not a problem.
They'll lose this series, but it won't be because they go into some tailspin after being no-hit.
