    We routinely have one of the best farming/developmental squads in MLB.

    The problem is that we can't pay the players when their minor league contracts expire and they want the big bucks.

    It would probably help if we got more than 9k people in the stadium every night, but I'm busy for the rest of the season.

    More like 900 actually going through the turnstiles.

    How big of a Reds fan are you right now?
    The entire division has picked up 2 games on the Scrubs in the last 2 days.

    Other than Pittsburgh. But fuck those guys.

    Paying too much for the results they're getting.

    Kind of like my Yankees the last many years.

    "IN"

    This might be hard to believe, but most of my entire life I have not been a fan of baseball. Casual would be a small stretch. I've stated that baseball is boring both watching on tv and live games, but for some strange unknown reason, when I started playing MLB the Show(15) a few months ago, even though I had played that game years prior, all of a sudden I am in love with baseball.

    I'm not kidding. If you saw my youtube history you would believe me. I watch baseball documentaries, just last night I watched videos of how to pitch certain types of pitches, and I've even watched full baseball games that were in black and white. Crazy huh? I couldn't watch hd baseball games a few months ago but now I'm engulfing myself with baseball. I even watch the MLB games of the week on youtube.

    Anyways, I look forward to reading ya'lls experienced opinions and perhaps picking up some good baseball context with posts in this thread.

    Cheers everyone!

    For example Tris Speaker is highly underrated, as well as Honus(pronounced hawn-us) Wagner has a brother who played in the majors for only 1 year, and Honus's brother's name was Butts Wagner.

    I learned that from one of the old school documentaries I watched lol

    You might enjoy the book I'm reading right now.
    It's titled "K: A History of Baseball in 10 Pitches" by Tyler Kepner

    Admittedly I'm a baseball nerd, but this book is fantastic.

    I was wrong about where Harper was heading but as far as him being overrated...

    Harper stats so far this year:

    .250 avg (slash is 250/372/472)
    22 HR
    Leads the league with 137 Ks

    That's a big fat yawn.
    He's got nice hair though.

    What's the difference between a Yankee 'dog and a Fenway frank?

    You'll be able to buy a Yankee dog in October.

    Aquino hit another one last night.

    He's the first player in MLB history to hit 8 HRs in his first 12 games.

    It's very interesting to see how the pitchers are approaching him. He tends to chase the low and away curve from righties so he is getting a healthy dose of those, but anything up in the zone he has been absolutely destroying.

    He has a slash of .452 / .500 / 1.161
