Give him away!   :pirate:
you mean... to you? He's still a bachelor....

bwahaaahaaa.  I am not a fan, so as long as he would not be traded to my team, I'd be quite happy to have him go somewhere else!

You'd become a fan, I'm sure, if he was traded to your living room. :-p

The Cubs probably have five players better looking than Joey Votto, so you can keep him.

i'm excited to see these youngsters.  apparently the brewers have been doing rebuilding right.  should be fun next 10 years.  it's funny that votto might be around longer than some of these rooks.  still excited

Brewers really aren't in that much better shape than the Reds.  They do have the elite prospect in Arcia that the Reds lack, but the strength for both is mainly youth in depth.  The other thing is, the Brewers can move Braun and LuCroy easier than the Reds can move Votto or Phillips.

The Reds are at least not just totally hopeless.  The worst is when you have a bad team that is old and boring.  The Reds at least will be fun to watch and root for.  Maybe everyone pans out, and then you have a dynasty.  Probably not.  But at least the possibility is there.

The Reds did the right thing in rebuilding, and they should have done it earlier.  The thing is, I just don't think they got enough back for Frazier or Chapman.  So they will most likely end up with a .500-ish team instead of a dynasty.

^^^^this  :-D  and while he's not the best looking player, Rizzo owes me after his foul ball hit me last year!

Not a chance, I'd never let him in the door!  I can't believe MK hasn't chimed in on this.

If nothing else, what was forecast as a rainy and later cloudy day, has remained dry all day and now is out-right sun-drenched. The Findley Market parade must be over as I see thousands of fans pouring into the Banks. Plus the Reds even have a chance to eek out a win against the Phillies.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Sweep!  3-0!  Atop the NL Central!  3 games ahead of St. Louis already!

Contender or pretender?  We'll find out soon.  Next three series:  Pirates, Cubs, Cardinals.

Playoffs are within reach! Just a few more wins is all it takes.  :P

If only all you could play Philadelphia every game.  I think that team is going to give the 2003 Tigers a run for their money.

Only 159 wins left in the regular season! It's sad that it's going so quickly.

Hoover sucks.

TBF, so does the rest of the pen and indeed most of the team.  There just isn't a pun you can make about them.

It's early, yet, but I'll take a 5-1 start anyday.  And they took 2 out of 3 games from this year's edition of the Pirates, one of the three greatest teams that ever played in the major leagues, along with the 2016 Cubs and Cardinals.  Go Reds!
