doesn't it seem like this to any of you? how long can the great baseball town of cincinnati continue to get slapped around and disrespected by signings of david weathers and ramon ortiz?
every april we get our hopes up, and every july, we settle back into that dank, shapeless cushion of realization. at least the "lovable losers" and the "accursed" seemed to put effort into their seasons.
our team is becoming an ongoing joke. this hurts me deeply. all i'd like to see are genuine signs of committed interest from our management. and why are ALL of our minor league pitchers suffering serious injuries? might we consider adjusting our method?
ramon ortiz? ben weber? is this our new veteran leadership after we decided barry larkin couldn't carry the torch for another year? longshots, i suppose, but i'm not holding my breath. and the decision not to re-sign larkin is a smack in the jaw for all lifelong reds fans. who's our shortstop? felipe lopez? grrreat. i guess d'angelo won't be with the team anymore? huh. figures.
ok, i kind of am holding my breath.
