My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
discussion did resurect a bit later.
In 2000 I was perplexed that people couldn't see this coming and it was roundly ignored then.
Another question I have, would anyone watch an internet game with no announcers? You still have all the production values and graphics but no announcers. That might be something more attractive to someone on the go who is interested in looking at the game but isn't really into the announcers.
Another commisioner could've tried yet again to "Break the players union". At least Bud realized it's a lot more profitable for both sides not to have a strike.
The latest draft slot setup was a huge step towards helping parity. A lot harder for a early first round talent to slip to a wealthy team at the bottom of the first round.
Heck, we are seeing a resurgence of many small/medium market teams.
Pittsburg, Cincy, and the Nats are all competitive this year. (Even though Washington is really a large market, they were struggling, and the system helped make them competitive).
Thank you Walt and Bob for bringing winning baseball back to Cincy -- it was nice while it lasted..
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
What I really want is the ability to select/change my camera angle for the game. Eventually the players will wear cameras as part of their uniforms. I'd say give it another 15-20 years.

"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."
When ESPN televises a game on Monday or Wednesday, that game will no longer be blacked out in the markets of the two teams. In other words, you can choose to watch the Red Sox on NESN or ESPN on those nights.
In New York and Boston, that’s a pretty significant concession. NESN and YES can’t be too pleased with that.
