As the hours until opening day are ticking away (do any clocks still tick?), the time has come to start the signup sheet for starters for this, the soon to be highly successful 2012 Cincinnati Reds season. While it is somewhat preferable that entire series be taken by one person, that is not always possible, so please consider which games you can provide starters for and sign up below. We do have our opening day starter named--SDDennis has agreed to provide the inspirational start fo... [More]
Last season we did the standard W-L prediction. Which was fine, but...standard. So this season, I thought we'd shake things up a little bit.

The Practice Facility--this is still my favorite part of the trip. No real moments this year like in years past with ED44 or DTrain. Davis hung around the cage and not the OF so no listening in. Two things you get from the morning workouts 1) ... [More]
Last thread was getting a little long to scroll through. Please continue the discussion here!
I don't know about you guys, but I think we might need a running PBR count for the RO spring training trip.
About the time this thread starter is posted, I’ll be on my way to Phoenix to catch a couple of days of Spring Training. We’ll see a split-squad game in Scottsdale on Friday and a game against the A’s in Phoenix on Saturday. “Pumped” does not begin to describe how I’m feeling right now.
This will be the 10th straight year than my son and I have attended Spring Training together. We went the first time for his high school graduation present and w... [More]
