Time for a new thread as the prior one is closed to comments. This will probably be a quiet week on the baseball front, so what better way to usher in Turkey Day than this episode of WKRP that remains one of my all time favorite clips.

I was chagrined the other day when Kimbrel went to the Red Sox for FOUR prospects. I was hoping Boston would be our partner in a Chapman trade, and four prospects sounded like a good haul.
Then I saw who the prospects were. NONE of the four will be ready for the majors next year, and the best of them is a BHam clone (speedy CF w/o power). No thanks.
When we trade Chapman (and I hope it's a when, not if), I hope we get at least one young bat (preferably an outfielder) who can start for us next ... [More]

We needed a new starter so here it is.
I think the GM move is a good one as do most of you it appears from reading the last thread.
Should be an interesting off-season but I doubt we will see much movement until the Winter meetings in early Dec so at least a month of waiting and wondering I'd guess.

Just noticed that our thread had once again timed out, so am opening a new one.
Hard to believe that it's time for November baseball, but my calendar is telling me that is the case. While I would like to see Johnny Cueto pitch another outstanding game in game 6, I am hoping Edinson Volquez can pitch the game of his life today and clinch it for the Royals. They are a fun team to watch and seem to have the magic this year that is often the decider in these series.
Here is Ge... [More]

Yep, the divisional and league championship series are done and only two teams are left standing. Fortunately, the team I am rooting for (KC) is one of those two. So happy that the WLBs did make it out of the first round, and also not too unhappy that the Cubs did not make it out of the second round.
Let the games begin!

I thought I'd throw up (not vomit) a thread starter in case anyone wants to comment on any of the upcoming league championship games.
So we have the Royals and the Blue Jays, and we have the Cubs and the Mets. Quite frankly, that would have been my favorite foursome from the start. I'm still pulling for the Royals over the Cubs in the World Series, but that's not a strong pull and it's subject to change. What I would like most is to see some good games and for Johnny to shine.

Well, the Rats and Yanks have been eliminated in the Wild Card round, who will be the next to fall in the division series?

I'm going to watch the first hour of the Reds game tonight until the Michigan football game comes on, and I'll be watching NFL football tomorrow--so I'm about at the end of my Reds watching for this year.
As you've probably heard by now, Price will return as manager next year. I understand that decision given the fact that he has one more year on his contract and next year will still be about rebuilding. But I want to go on record as saying that his managing sucked all year, and it was particul... [More]

Can't remember who came up with Silence of the Lamb (Otter? Dawg? RF?, but I love it. Hope to get another strong performance from the young lefty.
It's SonOfDoc's birthday today. That means it's the 31st anniversary of my becoming a father. Love being a dad.
To celebrate, Son and I went to the casino and made bank at the Blackjack table, just like we did on my birthday a few weeks ago. We've clearly established a new birthday tradition. :-)
