    What do YOU want to talk about?

    Dusty
    Lineups
    Advanced statistics
    Dunn
    Bruce
    Chemistry

    Just a partial list of things we talk a lot about that also get a lot of push back over the fact that we talk about them.

    In fact there are posters who seem to only post about not wanting to post about those things (that just made me dizzy)
    The question is, if not that stuff, what should we be talking about?

    What are the things we are missing out of?

    Re: What do YOU want to talk about?

    When your team is 80-52 there are all kind of pleasant surprises along the way.

    Do you remember when we were worried that Brosnon Arroyo was going to put up another ERA north of 5.00? Man, the dude produced.

    What kind of credit does Walt get for picking up Alfredo Simon, JJ Hover, Todd Redmond, Dioner Navarro and Xavier Paul? In years past it seems like the reds got very attached to the last couple of slots on the 40 man roster. He's regularly turning those slots over to try and find gems.

    How about that Mat Latos trade now? 11-4 with a 3.79 era and signs that he can pitch even better than he has? Hard to say that wasn't worth the cost.

    Is this the best fielding reds team you've ever seen?

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."

    I'm at work, so yes. However, as usual, I'm not wearing pants. They've learned not to try to change me.

    Couldn't find a better thread to post this in. This is pretty cool.

    *gasp* You caught me. I'm in massive Joey withdrawal right now and REALLY need him to rejoin the Reds again, even if it's just to come out and wave to everyone. Lineups? Stats? Manager bashing? Screw all that....I NEED MY JOEY FIX, DARN IT!

    Re: What do YOU want to talk about?

    There are so many good things going on with the team right now that of course people are going to rant over and over again about the few things that could be improved somehow. That's how discussion boards work most of the time. I guess the board would be rather boring though if every other thread was a cheerleading thread for the team giving them mad props for having a complete and total kick butt season thus far but I wouldn't mind it since that's more fun to talk about than stats, lineups, and ranting about both of those things when someone says something that doesn't fit your argument, LOL

    I'll admit I was slightly apprehensive about Mat when he first got here and had such a slow start, but I've seen the guy pitch in person a lot this season and what a turnaround he made after he finally let go of expectation and just pitched his game. He's a fantastic competitor and watching his complete game versus the Brewers in person earlier this season was an absolute treat. He's must see for me now and I cannot wait to watch him improve and get even better for the next few years.

    If you find 3 or 4 post on the first page of a thread questing why such a thread was even started it's likely that thread will go on to be a very popular.

    I'd like to talk about biology. It's completely overshadowed by chemistry on this board.

    What happened to the Reds cheerleaders?

    There are supposed to be statues similar to the Bench one of Rose, Morgan and Perez outside the stadium, where are they going and when?

    When did the helmet full of nachos show up on the menu? They looked good.

    Anyone got a Reds tattoo? I just got one so I am cool.

    Who will throw out the first pitch of Game 1 at the WS? Not Sean Casey please.

    What Red would be the funnest to have a drink with? I am picking Phillips.

    Who would win a fist fight between Chapman and Ludwick? I think if Chapman can avoid the knock out punch he would wear Ludwick down.
