    If you're ralking about Jeff Brantley, you don't really have to be an outsider.

    The most disappointing thing about that loss, beside being to the Cards, is that the rest of the weekend would have been gravy.

    Two games in a row Reds pitching has blown a 3 run lead. Lets hope this is just a bump in the road and not a year end trend.

    I was more talking about Brennaman. I can't stand him. I know I might get hate for it (more so than the hate for just being a Cards fan) but I've always found him disingenuous.

    You won't get any crap from me. I think he is horrible and doesn't actually enjoy the Reds success. I don't get the online radio package because of him

    For every Marty, there's a George Grande.

    I was more talking about his son. Marty is just a curmudgeon at times, which I can respect. I don't like Thom.

    Not a big Thom fan either. He and Brantley could both go.

    I think you need to go back and listen to his call of the Bruce homer in 2010 and the postgame wrap and any notion that he doesn't enjoy the Reds' success will be put to bed. That he's been with this team for over 35 years tells me he cares a great deal about the organization.

    Nobody really likes Thom, though he does have a good voice.
    "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."
