    Time to get the new thread started! Can't wait for the season to begin! Votto was re-signed for 10 years today!! Great job there.. need to get Phillips too tho.

    I was shocked when I saw that 10 year $225 million extension for Votto. The Reds clearly see Votto/Bruce as their future core going forward. They have a window, and they are taking it. The Madson injury really hurt this year though.

    It does, but you've got a lot of young guys that can fill that void. Maybe not defensively (Face it, Phillips is the best defensive second baseman in the league.), but we'll manage.

    I love Phillips. I really, really wish we could keep him, but it's looking like he might be the odd man out. That guy is fantastic for PR and fan relations.

    So can somebody give a rundown of major offseason departures/arrivals for those like me who are completely out of the loop, but would like to have some idea what the outlook is for this year? Many thanks!

    Per hardballtalk, Phillips is being offered a 5 year 62.5-65 million dollar deal and Jocketty thinks they should have an agreement within the Next week!

    Man, I LOVED watching that press conference Brandon had to announce the signing.. he loves this team, Cincy, and their fans. Truely a special quality in an athlete, he said today was the best day of his life.. so proud to have him in Cincy.


    With that said, the season is very very young, but we gotta start winning more games! Votto and phillips both sat out tonight, but we can't afford to be losing games to the Cards at home.

    Meh, we are less than two weeks into the season. I don't start getting worried until June with these things. But they do need to pick it up.

    Glad to get back to .500 yesterday. Joey Votto is pretty good at baseball.

    And Bruce, he's so hot right now! Bruce!

    Speaking of Jay Bruce, he is the NL Player of the Week.

    Brandon Phillips is having a rough year thus far. Hopefully once his hamstring fully heals he will turn things around.

    Going to my first Reds game in years this coming week! So excited! Going to the Reds-Braves game on Tue night, sitting down low on the 3rd base side.

    Also just found out Latos is the starter, im pretty excited about that!

    Just got back from the game today. Pretty cool to see some history. Most Combined HR's ever hit at GABP with 9. Sucks that 5 were for Colorado, but it was great to see a win. First time I've seen Votto, Bruce, and Phillips ever hit homers!


    Man, what a scorcher, though. My face and arms are more red than the jerseys the guys wore today!

    Reds are killing it right now....without Votto!! Can't wait to see this team when he comes back. Wouldn't mind seeing them go out and get a lead off guy, but I won't be mad if they stand pat.

    Man last night was rough.. Couldn't buy a good pitcher.. Way too many balls thrown as well. Unfortunately I made the trip over to watch it last night, still had a lot of fun but the pitching was beyond bad. Within the first 3 innings Leake and Simon put us in a hole we just couldn't dig out of.
