I think it's the more sense of community & family with tOSU and the Univ of Dayton, having spent much time (and money) at both places. They have had a profound effect on my life. With pro teams I'm a fan but from a distance. Being a Reds fan or not being a Reds fan wouldn't have changed my life too much.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

I use both. I tend to use "we" more with college teams and "they" with pro teams.

In all seriousness Cueto & Chapman are (and should be) gone, Leake might go and Bruce may go too if they get the right offer. I can see ol' Walt trading Brayan Pena and Marlon Byrd as well because they can add some value to and depth to a playoff team. I think only Frazier is untouchable. It would take the perfect offer to get Billy Hamilton because he makes nothing and is still very young, makes no sense to trade him. I don't think anyone will want to take on Phillip's contract, no offense for all that money.

Maybe I'm just not getting it but I don't understand how killing the resale market would make more tickets available. I would think it would make tickets harder to get as there would only be one source (the university) and one transaction. If you don't or can't get tickets from the 1st level of the market (again, tOSU) you're out of luck. With the current system tickets are always available, for a price, determined my the market. Eliminating the resale market would mean the season is essentially sold out today with virtually no opportunity to get 2015 tickets. The only tickets I could see coming available would be if an opponent school returned some of their allotted tickets before a game.

This is a horrific idea. I know several people who are season ticket holders and rotate the tickets through family members (myself included)

who actually WANT to go

to the games.

I absolutely agree that if there are good offers out there it's a bad baseball move to sit on your hands until after July 14th.

Comment 08 Jul 2015

The reason they're waiting to deal Cueto (and Chapman, and maybe Leake) is because of the All-Star Game being in Cincy this year. The owner Castellini is a competitive guy who takes pride in his team and his city and he's not going to deal their best player before the eyes of the baseball world are upon them.

Comment 08 Jul 2015

No reason to have a quality top line closer if you're going through a rebuild. He's a fan favorite and super fun to watch but if the Reds are going to blow it up, Chapman's gotta go too.

Comment 02 Jul 2015

It's a tough pill to swallow but a fact of life. Sometimes employers are going to put limits on things you can do, even outside of work. Particularly when the employer/employee relationship is contractual and not at will like a lot of us work. I hold a license for my employment that restricts me from certain actions and excludes me from others. So basically its a sucky situation but get over it.

I understand, to a point, that fans of a team and university will defend and support their people. But I don't hear OSU fans falling all over themselves to support or defend Art Schlichter. Maybe I'm wrong and there's a subculture of Schlichter defenders out there, but I haven't seen them, certainly not on this site. I do understand that we live in a grown up and complex world where things aren't always apples to apples. My point is simply that comparing the offenses of lying to the NCAA about trading some gear for some tattoos (which is not a crime) to lying about child rape (which is a crime) is not a strong comparison.
