    Not to dwell, but.... I didn't see the game -- was watching on Gameday. It appeared that some of the pitches to Bruce were in the middle third of the plate. True?

    Not looking for a goat, just wondering.

    Todd's D will be on Par with what we got from Rolen this year. Which is Acceptible. But his bat will play much better.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    I'm throwing out the Rally Onion.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I can honestly sit here and say I would rather miss the playoffs then choke the way the Reds did.

    Oh I believe you. It's just weird, that's all.

    Very extreme. I don't think anyone, especially those that analyze/report on baseball, will see the Reds as a joke.

    Will the Nats, the team with the best record in MLB, be a joke if the Cards send them packing?

    Every post-season you see teams, even underdogs or the unexpected, rise up and perform well. It happens.

    I'm certainly not going to call my team a joke. Not when you lose your ace.

    You're a weird guy, OBM.

    OBM would have rather been the 2012 Astros than the 2012 Reds.

    I have had enough of this team for a while I'm calling it a season.

    You can't overlook the fact that the Reds were in a position to sweep the series and instead got swept at home to lose the series. It's never happened in the NLDS in history. It's not really the same.

    I know lol.

    This isn't even the angry me saying this. I accepted defeat after the Posey grand slam. I've had plenty of time to calm down. I'm being completely honest when I say I would rather miss the playoffs than get eliminated the way the Reds did. The Reds made history in a bad, bad way,
    I miss Adam Dunn.
