    Over half the team is home grown. Not sure I get this point. Votto was homegrown too.

    Just saying there's a big difference between dominating at AAA and continuing to dominate in the majors. Lots of Louisville Heroes have wilted the minute they donned the Wishbone-C.

    Major league baseball is tough.

    Oh well -- rubber match tomorrow.

    Don't know that I'd bat Stubbs 5th, but certainly 6th. Either make more sense than him at the top of the order. I realize they have no real candidates on the 25 man for the top spot but I'd probably move Phillips back there, which of course creates a hole at 4.

    I think neglecting LF in the offseason (or at least not being successful) has been Walt's one big gaffe since he's been here.

    No doubt. After Phillips, the hope factor diminished tremendously.

    Gee, I wonder what you would say if this offense wasn't leading the major leagues in runs scored?

    When a team gets two hits, and one is by the pitcher, you usually just have to tip your hat to the other team's pitchers.

    The same team scored 9 runs 24 hours ago. Really not worried about the offense.

    No you didn't black out. It's because Jeff Brantley was doing PBP. He sucks.

    Lower than Taveras' stint in Cincy. Lower than CPatt. Way lower than the Bako era. Lower than most of the Manos de Oro seasons. We have entered Ray Olmedo territory.
    Are you going to celebrate and rejoice every time the man makes an out?

    No offense but it gets old after awhile.

    No celebration. It is just commentary, like a lot of other posts on here.
