    And I picked him up in the 20th round of my 16-team draft (see my team in the fantasy forum here). I really think he is going to be stellar this season!

    I think we need a name for the bounce as well.

    How many games do you expect where they will have that many K's and still win?

    The K's will not be as many in most other games, i know..... but i cannot see them SO this many times and winning most of those type of games.

    Dunn and Griffey bounced off the bench and ran to homeplate as soon as Randa made contact. Dunn knew it was over before anybody.

    Umm, we were the ones to name it the bounce (we = reds).

    your way leads to seasons like he had last year. Me, I'm feeling great about how he was used and how he responded.

    after opening day, setup becomes more routine for a young player. You can use him in ever-increasing roles as the season progresses. Soon, you might have a top setup guy.

    Yeah, everyone did copy it. Thats why we should name it something besides "the bounce". Something a little more cincinnatish.
