After the Expos debacle, yep - we may win 1 game. But who knows, maybe the Marlins show up.

we kind of have something going for us....

whenever the bats are supposed to 'break out' ... they have (ie: SD, Colo, Milw)

this is one of those times......

Unfortunately, thats also when the starting or relief pitching goes on vacation. :banghead

Maybe, just maybe they can plug the holes to salvage part of this sinking ship.

later......

p.s. I'm not holding my breath though :plain

2 of 3 is a must....


and maybe, just maybe, if Penny gives us the 'start' we have been waiting for from him, and Pudge returns with some 'might', this could get the train rolling back towards the track

Well, I just hope they can take 2 of 3 or you might as well kiss this season goodbye (I already have...but for those who still have hope...)

Hey Ramp,

You where I'm from. As a Reds fan, I am very worried about this series. The Marlins haven't been playing well and they're definitely due for some good luck. On the other hand, we always struggle with teams that aren't playing well. No matter what, I expect to get the Marlins best games, especially with Penny pitching tonight. Hopefully, our players are ready, but with this Reds team, you never know.... Anyway, let's play ball!!

Good luck to you guys, it should be a fun series.

The Reds have been hot, but you never know. The Reds just took a series from the Braves, and it was the first series the Braves lost in something like ten series. They'd been 27-5 in their last 32 games, so you just never know about when you're catching a team.

They say in Vegas to never bet the "due", but I'm a little worried about this series as the Marlins seem due to break out a little.

If The Marlins had Penny vs Dumpster, and Nate Bump vs Graves i might be interested in tuning in... Bump is one of the Unkown guys who win Cy Youngs ;) :whistle

The Reds will probably sweep us.



Next month the Rangers probably will do the same.



It sucks to be a Marlin fan these days.

Well lets see...



The year's leading up to 97 were not bad.


Mainly cause expectations were low and the team slowly showed signs of improvement.



I think it was 2000 when times were also good, when this team did a really good job throughout, finishing just under .500.


Since then this team has been stuck in neutral and going back occassionally.


This team is NOT showing signs of improvement, which is the most discouraging thing of all.
