    Boy…I can’t wait for the flood of commentary to come rolling in.

    3 words: Frickin Dusty Baker, that’s all you had to say Ace it would’ve saved your fingers some work.

    i think that the national league central has gotten more competitive…the teams we shouls worry about are the brewers and the cardinals!! have you seen the brewers rotation?? rick peterson will do a great job in wrigleyville North!

    THE CUBS ARE ODVIOUSLY STARTING TO GET WORRIED…….THE REDS ARE A YOUNG TEAM ON THE RISE AND THE CUBS ARE NOW BECOMING PAST THERE PRIME, EVEN AS I TYPE THIS THE REAPER IS GETTING CLOSER TO ALL OF THEM…..THE WINDOW IS NOW CLOSED AND ITS NOW TIME FOR THE NEW……THE TEAM THAT WILL SUCK IS THE CUBS…..BY THE WAY GREAT OFFSEASON TRADE FOR MILTON BRADLEY….I CAN SEE WHY YOU GUYS THINK YOUR SO GREAT…..GO REDS……….

      Hes drunk. The reds will finish 4th! lol…. The reds dont look all that great. Its a race between the Cubs/Cards/Brewers.

      1. mike

        good thing they finished fourth(THE REDS), or I would have to wait in that long line to get playoff tickets. THAT WOULD SUCK!!! NOTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What’s that, Mike? I didn’t quite hear you.

  6. Cardfan

    Reds finish behind the Pirates this year – guaranteed.

    Miles WILL hit .350, however he will only have 6 RBIs, cementing his legacy of unproductive productivity…

      Go reds. Have fun explaining the 3rd largest payroll in baseball with lackluster results….again.

      The cubs are the real travesty of the division.

  7. Butcher

    Wow. Mike’s response couldn’t have possibly been scripted better. I can’t wait until the “Why the Cardinals Will Suck” edition. There are going to be about 50-60 Mikes to look forward to…

    Reds have some great young starters, but the wrong guy sending them out. Chapman in the hands of Dusty = Cy Young at towel throwing

  9. Nipper

    Its easy to criticize when you have an organization that trades all of its great players and who knows what they end up with. Watch Dusty however, as he will bring the Reds to a 2nd place this year and the playoffs in 2011

    Good stuff. A bit humorous and -of course- slanted to the negative side, but not too far from the truth. The Reds’ season will completely revolve around the maturation of it’s large core of young players. There are so many in play (Stubbs, Bruce, Votto, Cueto, Bailey, Chapman, Dickerson, LF TBD), that it is almost impossible for them -in total- to be more or less than average. Given that, I’d put them at 81 games; enough for 2nd in this lousy division. The Winner? Whoever stays healthiest.

      I’ve been a Cub fan for 38 years and have seen the Reds almost as long. I agree that 80 – 85 wins is a realistic goal but you all definitely have abright future. In my opinion this is honestly the strongest Reds rotation since the early 90s (potentially). But after seeing the ways Baker blew out the arms of some of the best young pitchers the Cubs have had in years, durability should be your main concern. Then again, he isn’t trying to break a 100 year old curse in Cinci, so I guess we’ll see. Anyway, good luck this year.

  11. Brian

    Reds looking good so far eh Cubbies? Pitching has been solid.

  12. Butcher

    Yes, they are. And I’d much rather see the Reds with the division than the Cards (if those are my two choices).

  13. Jordan

    Good call with the Reds sucking this year……

    I really hope you don’t actually follow baseball.

      You’re new, right?

  14. Chas

    What is amazing is how well the Reds are doing with thier payroll of 70 mil; Walt Jocketty is man!

    1. jstraw

      How much did Jocketty have to do with that roster?

  15. steve

    please! please! please! do not take down this page. It is one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen!

    12,000 fans at last night’s game, Reds fans. Nicely done. Your team is in 1st place on September 14. You’re going to make the postseason for the first time in 15 years. And you draw 12,000? C’mon. Show a little support for your ballclub. I mean that sincerely — you have a fantastic team this season. They deserve your support.

      Like Brenly said with regard to attendance at the Yankees/Rays game last night, weeknight…kids are back in school…Monday Night Football….

      1. Butcher

        DON’T MAKE EXCUSES FOR THEM!
        There were 40,720 at the Cubs/Cards game last night. I know it’s a rivalry game, but neither of those teams are making the playoffs…

        1. jstraw

          Yeah, you’re right…shit fans.

    2. Jeff

      That’s bad, Great American Ballpark is a very nice stadium and the Reds are a pretty entertaining young team that plays hard every day.
