We'll win it all next year...
This is a fun question.
First HR at Riverfront was from the opposition- Hank Aaron? I think it will be Brian Giles at GAB.
I'm with savafan, Larkin, first pitch, place goes wild.
He'll probably be all right.
Tommy Helms... no wait - Pete Rose, after a surprise last minute reinstatement, and then immediate hire to become player manager.
Promise me one thing, those of you lucky enough to have tickets for the opener... if Larkin really does nail it in the game's first at bat, go nuts. Don't stop screaming until the 9th inning. 'Cuz that would be very special.
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
