    Cool! You got me on that. I shouldn't have been negative after such a good game. My bad.

    Have I mentioned I love the Randa signing?

    If anyone else is looking for pictures, there is a gallery of 34 shots from throughout the game including both players and fans at cincinnati.com. It has a couple cool ones that could look good as a background.

    I was a little disappointed Dunn didn't use the whole field today. Both of his HRs were to right center field. Not a good sign.

    No, it IS infinite. If the nominator were Zero (as in zero divided by zero) it would be indefined.

    What a great picture.

(along with Larue's RBI dbl)? Randa make a couple of nice plays at 3B, and had a couple hits (one to win the game). Ironic isn't it?

    At his present pace, Adam Dunn will strike out 324 times this season. We better trade him.
    Of course, at his present pace Dunn will also hit 324 HRs and will have 810 RBI this season, but those strikeouts are all important. By the way, he didn't have a single sacrifice fly today either.

    GO REDS!

    Why all the fuss about 3 lefties together? Its because this allows a manager to use his LHP against them all at once. If they are broken up he has to think about it more.
