Fair enuff 3rex...not wanting to argue just yank your chain a bit which is what us fans tend to do when their team is performing well. I'm quite sure you know what I'm talking about. It's all in fun and as someone who grew up in central Illinois, I've had a lot of practice of talking crap to cardinal fans. I have a lot of respect for the
Cardinal franchise and the way they've done things over the yrs. Their ability to consistently put people in the seats speaks volumes for not only how well the organization is run but also about how loyal the fanbase is to the cards and the game of baseball. Cincinnati is also a city with a strong passion about their home team but when things aren't going well there they have lacked the abilty to still fill up the ballpark which I hate. Sorry for intruding on a Cardinals thread and I will try to refrain from doing so in the future...but I would hope Card fans would also show the same respect regarding Reds threads.

I understand man. I feel the same. Sometimes my desire to debate crosses the line a bit. I took the "Cards fans are confused" line, and not knowing what that was all about, just decided to fire back at ya!
The Reds are kicking some butt, no question, and doing so without Votto makes it more impressive.
To be honest, im keeping my eye on the WC teams right now & hoping we can stay in reach of them. If the Reds happen to come back to the pack a little bit, then that will be fine too.
I do have much respect for those Big Red Machine teams. As a matter of fact, as a young kid who enjoyed playing shortstop, Dave Concepcion was one of my favorite players in those days.
