Red Reposter: Joey Votto is Clubhouse Heisenberg


How do you assemble a great team? You put Joey freaking Votto on it.

The roster is a grotesque animal


and in its eyes we see how completely wrong we can be. (this is a post about the Reds' 40-man and 25-man roster woes)

Saturday Reposter: I Choose Optimism


Things may be pretty bleak. Lets try to find that silver lining. If only there was a playbook for those sorts of things.

RR Previews: NL East, with nothing pleasant


Five teams are in this division, and I can't think of anything nice to say about any of them.

And don't say "Skip Schumaker", ya dolt.

Whole lot of prospect talk and not a little coaching talk. Also, Scott Rolen's Reds may return to their rightful owner.

Ted Ligety held on for a gold in the skiing giant slalom run and the usual suspects dominated in cross-country.

Red Reposter: Again, with optimism


Jocketty is saying all the right things. Billy is doing all the right things. Diaz is eating all the right things. Bruce has all the right moves...wait, what?

Team skiing results: Finns win, Germans ... don't


Tough luck took the Germans out of the medals in both the men's and women's competitions. But the Scandinavians dominated again, though this time Finland had the best day of the trio.

Snowboarding results: Vic Wild wins for Russia


The American-born Vic Wild won the Parallel Giant Slalom for Russia. On the Women's side, Patrizia Kummer got Switzerland a gold.

Norway dominated Tuesday's cross-country sprints; on the men's side by narrowly avoiding a crash.
