Shoutout to Reds Country

My first week on the new job has kept me pretty busy, so I'm a little late sending some love to my homeboys in Redsland.

Deaner at Blue Collar Baseball makes an argument for moving back the walls at Great American Ball Park. I can't agree with the part about slugging being expensive--the Reds can't drop a series without hitting a cheap up-and-coming slugger with it--but the unwillingness of good free-agent pitchers to come to town seems relevant.

Redleg Nation has started a Reds podcast. Welcome to the party, boys!

I love to see the phrase Latin Love Machine popping up again. Thanks, Shawn.

    You red fans are the biggest band wagon riding pieces of shit I have ever encountered in the world of sports. The only time you ever cheer is when the Cubs fans come to town and make you cheer and thats coming from your own fans sitting all around me last night. I cant believe you guys actually have a blog considering that all your fans are wearing their Carson Palmer jerseys in June or some red-neck ass UK hat and shirt. Your fans suck, your stadium sucks and your chicks are ugly. You never deserved to have Griffey in the first when all you did was boo him but now you all Loooooove him. Your pre-game call in show was the funniest thing I have ever heard while I was waiting for the rain to stop yesterday. Some dumb red neck actually thought that you guys would get Josh Beckett for Adam Dunn. Here is a little fact dumbass, ADAM DUNN SUCKS! I hope your little league field of a stadium falls into the river where it belongs.

    Boy, you Cubbie trolls are sad. Posting cut-and-paste trolls in all the Reds blogs? The least you could do is write some different insults for each blog.

    The Bats game was bizarre. We traded Calvin Medlock and Love Shack for Jorge Cantu and outfielder Shaun Cumberland. Cumberland is with the Montgomery Biscuits, but the other three players were at the Bulls-Bats game tonight, and just switched dugouts before the game. Cantu was in the Bulls lineup, and is now in the Bats lineup. They didn’t announced the new lineups until after the first half inning.


    I’m kind of bummed we’re losing Medlock. I saw him at the Bats game last weekend.

    Oh, and I’m really wondering if a trade fell through. Lohse wasn’t in the rotation, now all of a sudden, he is. They pulled Dumatrait Thursday night, and Bats manager Rick Sweet said it was “at the request of the Reds.” Now they’re saying it was just because they were limiting his innings. All very mysterious.

    letsplay2: At least we don’t blame black cats and goats for 100 years of championship futility.

    As a matter of fact, we don’t even [i]have[/i] 100 years of championship futility. [i]Nobody[/i] can claim ten decades of championship futility, except the Chicago Cubs. So here is a little fact dumbass, THE CUBS SUCK! They haven’t won a World Series since 1908, haven’t even [i]played[/i] in a World Series since 1945, and that’s the longest dry spell not only in baseball but also in the NFL, NHL, and NBA. The Cubs are the most futile franchise in all of the four major U.S. sports leagues.

    Oh, and anybody who plays at Wrigley Field has no business saying [i]anything[/i] about anybody else’s stadium. Talk about a Little League field, you call that little suburban back yard you have in left field a major league power alley? Fergy Jenkins got it right when he escaped to the Rangers and said, “Wrigley Field is a [i]bad[/i] ballpark!”

    So go back to Chicago – may the door hit you on your ass on the way out and hopefully knock some sense into you since that’s obviously where your brain is. And when you get back, take [i]our[/i] Wishbone C off the Bears’ helmets. The Wishbone C that you stole from us in 1962 because Chicago is too dumb to come up with an original logo (no wonder you couldn’t even come up with original posts to the Reds blogs you’ve just embarrassed yourself on…LAMER!).


  6. KC2HMZ says:

    OK, people, come on now – post! It’s been, like, 24 hours of silence now. It was a good rebuttal, but not [i]that[/i] good.


  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    letsplay2, you’ll be glad to know that the Reds ownership is working on a project to bus in brain-dead, black-livered idiots who wouldn’t realize there’s no point in rooting for a team that hasn’t won in 100 years, even if they could stop drooling on themselves long enough to realize that there was a game going on in the field.

    So you ought to be feeling much more at home in GABP very soon.

    Sweet! RHM, you da best! 😀
