    Yeah, but the team is on fire, winning again and most of the comments are of the negative variety.

    One thing I agree with WVRedsFan about is Cozart needs to be dropped down...he is struggling really really badly right now

    Stubbs flies out to center.
    "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."

    Yes. Yes you do. Now behave and get back to posting properly.

    Name one other negative post by me except the Bruce post that was totally true. I find the comment a little harsh.

    They found dinosaur bones in Coors Field? Does Carl Everett know about that?

    Well, you're preaching to the choir here with that comment. :O) It's never positive enough around here for me. And the piling on drives me nuts. But in this case, he's right. For the sake of Zack if not the team, he needs to move down in the order. He's clearly putting too much pressure on HIMSELF right now.

    Thankfully, he's professional enough not to take his hitting problems with him out on defense.

    Winning now is exciting. Doesn't mean it's not damn near impossible to envision the Reds winning something that matter with out machines like Stubbs and Cozart hitting 1-2. I think Walt realizes this.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I just think that some posters get lost in the little things and miss the bigger picture. The team is rolling. I'm not going to get bothered by what a certain player is doing. It isn't hurting them 100 games in.

    BP lines out to short.

    3-0 Reds to the bottom of 7.
