    I'll be back to this thread in about a month when the reds are hot and see if you think the same thing. baseball is an marathon, not a sprint. Its a long season. Do you remember how we started last year? No. You remember how we finished. "automatic out" paul janish just dipped below a .300 batting avg... Gomes has the 1st or 2nd most walks on the team... automatic outs? I think not. Volquez has struggles first inning, but anyone with half a baseball mind can see how if he figures it out, he could be a top 5 pitcher in the NL. It takes up to 3 years to be back to 100 percent from Tommy John. That's the big picture. Go root for the Cubs if you're going to make ignorant statements.

    You could trying saying, "Hey, Bruce, the season has started without you."

    ...isn't rooting for the Cubs in itself an ignorant statement...?
