    Random Thoughts

    It's to the point where the teams that aren't playing the Reds will be complaining about "integrity of the game."

    We thought it'd be an easier schedule but it was for the Astros and Cubs.

    Maybe we should rethink the whole anybody-can-play-left-field thing.

    If Arroyo has mono, the bullpen has the mumps.

    It's too bad they weren't this bad before the trading deadline.

    How can a manager know so much less from one year to the next?

    It's like they're playing a game that's very much like baseball but with crucial differences.

    One year of this seems longer than 10 years used to.

    At least the catchers aren't fighting each other.

    This team is playing like we all feel.

    Excellent!
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    You ain't lying.
    "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."
