As we’re just around the corner from Spring Training, here are things I hope for during the 2013 season. I’ll get things rolling—feel free to chime in.
--I hope Todd Frazier returns to mid-summer form—all year long. Wow, what a great July-August that guy had while Joey was out. By the end of the season, however, he looked a bit tired and was fighting for playing time with Rolen. I’d like to see him get 469 ABs and hit .277 with 26 HRs and... [More]
You know what sucks? The off season sucks. But the truth is that this exact moment sucks a little less for a Reds fan than a fan of just about every other team in baseball. Sure, the Giant fans are undoubtedly feeling good about their World Series Championship, and Canadians always seem like they're in a good mood, which means that given their off season, Jays fans are probably pretty stoked.
But hey - life is good for us Reds fans. Here are the 22 reasons I'm glad to be a Reds fan at t... [More]

I thought the last thread was getting a bit unwieldy, hence a new thread. These Christmas pictures of Mat and Cat Latos caught my eye, so provided the content for this starter
Happy New Year everyone!
Well last night's trade has us all stirred up and with the last starter getting long in the posts I thought we'd better start up another new one. So let's kick the trade discussions up another notch.
I see that the previous thread is approaching 400 posts (glad to see the return to life following the lull after the WS), so I thought I would make it easier for those on mobile devices to follow along. Nothing exciting to report (yet), but thought I would include this pic of Joey the Beard at Redsfest 2012 today.
Carry on, all.
I'm just going to continue to put a new post up every time I want to. Whatever. I miss baseball.
Potential topics for discussion:
--The upcoming magical winter meetings during which nothing ever seems to be accomplished (BUT THIS YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT. OR NOT.)
--The upcoming magical Mayan calendar doomsday date. Hey, it would get me out of room mother responsibilities. (SERIOUSLY, WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA. I AM SO NOT SUITED.)
--The following... [More]
We're not likely to have heavy traffic over the holidays, but I decided we needed a new thread (less scrolling) before I head out of town for Thanksgiving and only have mobile access for several days.
Feel free to open up any topics, as usual. Anybody asking for anything Reds-related for Christmas? Anyone going to Redsfest? Anyone have deep-fried turkey fire stories?
Happy Thanksgiving to all :)
The off season is upon us, and for Reds fans, that means several annual arguments have started:
- How much money do the Reds have?
- Can they/should they re-sign our agin Free Agent(s) or should we see what else we can do?
- What prospects can/should be traded to upgrade the gaping holes on the team?
- How terrible is the Enquirer as a source for information on the Reds?
Actually, scratch the last one - no one actually argues that, we all just generally accept the answer is ... [More]
The old thread was getting a little long. If anyone has content to add, I'm happy to paste it in....just doing this for mobile convenience.
