While the last Reds-Stros series should have been make or break for the Stros, it wasn't simply because of the NL's terribleness. Now this one might really be make or break. The Stros have been treading the waters of sub-mediocrity for a while now, but are somehow still in it. It's like having a loved one in a coma they will never come out of--you almost want them to die so they can have peace and you can move on, but as long as the heart beats there is the slight hope they shall awaken.

You're right about the NL....it's pretty watered down this year going by overall win/loss records.
And it looks like the Astros came to play....maybe the reds can dust off their bats to win it and you can come up with some more of those colorful nicknames for your squad....

How about "Deader than Castros" (at least that's my theory--Raul is even now consolidating his power)

That's a good one. I especially liked your "Sinking Fastros".

He isnt that good against left handers so he usually sits when they start for the other team.

as do i, but im mpore or less just rooting against everyone else.

i mean i love the reds as much as the next guy but between the politics, piss poor 90s to early 2000s, and strikes ive lost some interest. im really looking forward to castellinis ownership and restoring the tradition that weve so dearly missed.


anyone else here marty say something about no blue in the uniforms next year? if so, and black is out, will we just resort to red/white/grey? whats the word?

I heard he said (in response to a fan email) that unless he was mistaken, royal blue will replace black in the unis next season instead of '08 like the fan presumed....I have no idea.....and I don't really care....I'm sure they will be cool looking....

Don't give the Clayton haters any ammo.

It was actually Valentin with a Clayton mask on, right?

as for his game winning hit, everybody gets a hit once in a while, he just happened to get lucky tonight[/quote]
Oh, I'm not saying that Clayton should play every day, but...he IS on our team, and we have no influence over when he plays, so....GO CLAYTON WHEN YOU RARELY PLAY!
