    It must have ticked Dusty off too...Johnny looked like he was running for his life on that one.

    Never saw him either, as I was 4 when he retired, but I could not stand the Dodgers, as they were in my memory the Reds big rival. My brother loved the Dodgers just to piss me off. Those were some classic battles for the division.

    Yeah, I started watching baseball & my Reds around '74 or so. So I was pretty spoiled early on. But the hatred for Dodger blue still runs deep.

    I still hate the Dodgers. I was lucky in that I saw several game sin the 60s, twice saw Koufax and the Reds won both.

    A bit of both. Burnett's been quite good this year (outside of that one outing).

    Burnett isn't chopped liver and Johnny is an ace. It's a classic pitcher's game. At least the Reds have the pitching to be in these games now.

    Yeah, I know, but one hitter through 6 and 17 in a row retired?

    He's gotten his share of lucky breaks.
    "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."
