  • How bout them Reds!!

    I've been a Cincinnati Reds fan since the late 60's. The Big Red Machine era of the 70's was something I'll never forget. I still remember the starting lineups from the unbelievable teams they had in that decade. However, except for their surprise World Series win over the A's in 90, they have not given their fans much to get excited about. Well, things have changed, baby! The team everyone predicted to sweep the cellar this year is leading MLB in wins, and doing it by kicking the behind of great teams like Houston and St. Louis. (Sorry to all of you Cardinal fans)
    GO REDS!

              I have been a Reds fan all my life. As a matter of fact, I own a charlie Hustle tshirt! I think it's great that reds are playing so well, let's see if they can keep it going all season and not just up until the all star break!

                    The Reds will fold soon. Their pitching will come back to earth and the Cardinals will run away with the Central.

                      This may not be were it belongs but this is worthy of posting a World Series win by the same town our beloved Rams come from in the most viewed forum.

                      There have been many years we have had better regular season success. But I can not remember a team pulling together and relying on each other more then this team did this postseason. They have four starting pitchers that are going to be free agents and their CF may not be back. Eck, Rolen, and Pujols were playing hurt. Pujols only has one RBI in the NLDS and was not hitting well in the World Series. But Yadi who was there worst batter all year was perhaps one of their best from the start of the playoff. They barely made the playoffs after Houston had a huge winning streak to try to come from behind but they did just enough to hold them off. Weaver was released by the Angels and turned into an Angel in the postseason. He looked like a bust in his first month in a Cardinal uniform. But he turned into another great acquisition by Jocketty (GM). He had the highest regular season ERA of any pitcher to get the win in the World Series clinching game. The Cardinals 83 wins were the lowest ever total by any team to win it all. The Cardinals lost players they came into the season counting on along the way such as Mulder the #2 pitcher entering the season Izringhausen their closer for several years now. Pujols went down for a month during a stretch where he was playing better baseball then any player ever had he was on pace for a monstrous season. Edmonds went down for an extended period of time and did not play hardly at all near the end of the season. But two veteran castoffs Spiezio and Preston Wilson stepped in and played well and the pitching coaches son Duncan a rookie came in and chipped in with over 20HRs. Jocketty the GM was criticized for not pulling off his magic at the deadline and after the deadline. He only got players such as Belliard, Weaver, and Preston Wilson and they did not resign Grudzielanek to play second in the off-season. The front office has a new stadium and more revenue coming in but they held their budget at where it was. People kept asking about why we did not get a proven second baseman, outfielder and a better starting pitcher when we let Mark Grudzielanek (2nd), Reggie Sanders (OF), and Matt Morris (SP) walk via free agency and they failed in the pursuit of a big name pitcher and outfielder they got out bid on. Well Walt did come through at second he picked up Belliard for almost nothing, Duncan and Wilson provided good production in the outfield, and Weaver became one of our best post-season pitchers.

                      We have our own David and Goliath. David Eckstein the smallest guy on the field at 5 foot and some change wins the world series MVP he was a walk on in college.

                      Congratulations Cardinals on a true team and organizational World Series Championship. Rams lets do the same in 2006 any one in can win the Cards proved that.

                      For baseball Cardinals fans....

                      ...this may be some of the best starting pitchers the Redbirds have had in...well maybe ever.

                      There are 14 teams in MLB that have a 12+ win pitcher. One team has two 12+ win pitchers (White Sox). The Cards have no less than 4!

                      At least we're not the Cardinals

                      When all else fails... there are the Cardinals to make us feel better.

                      Can you imagine what Rams fans would be saying today if the team had lost to the Seahawks in the manner that the Cardinals lost yesterday?

                      I think this board would spontaneously combust.

                      ONE - WIN, Just one win
                      by RamDez
                      And what a great game to watch (if your a Rams Fan (and a wee sorry to all the saints fans out there))

                      BUT, here is the trick.

                      Next week its the Cardinals and you know what the Cardinal fans are thinking? The Rams, Cardinals and the Seahawks are not good football teams and anyone who begs to differ, check out the standings Seahawks are 2 - 5, Cardinals are 1 - 6 and the Rams are 1 - 6 and still sit at the bottom of the weak west.

                      Now, getting back to the trick?

                      Well lets just hope the Rams are better than the other two. I would like to bet my skin that they are but I am hoping that Spags learns from Tony La Russa and finds some inspirational words to give to the team for the next set of games. Well coach, now its hear and the ClanRam will hold you to account and I, for one, will be remembering your words . I just hope that Tony La Russa manages to talk to the this team every Sunday till the end of the season ...
