I don't say this enough......thank you. Thank you for your dedication to and support of this blog.
I certainly appreciate the input and contributions to this blog by current and former players, coaches, adminstrators, broadcasters, agents, etc. But if you are not checking out this blog, none of this really matters. I try to make it a one-stop destination that you can turn to for news, stats, stories, videos and stuff that you may not be finding or may have missed. I like to offer perspective on the local teams, from those outside of Cincinnati. I don't write a a lot for the blog, because I know you really don't have time to read a lot. I try to keep stuff short, but offer the option for you to read more. My main job is my show. So most of my thoughts will be offered on the air each day. Please let me know what i can do to increase your use and enjoyment of my blog. Thanks again.

Lance McAlister and the Two Angry Guys debuted on the rebranded AM 1360 HOMER."The Sports Animal". John Fay had the story of our move from 1160 WBOB to 1360 WCKY.
Arroyo's durability something to be desired
"I love San Francisco," Arroyo says. "I love the whole vibe of the city. I love walking down the street and see a guy in a tuxedo, two guys holding hands and some girl with tattoos riding a skateboard. I love the eclecticness of the city. But to be honest, it's going to be sad if I have to leave here. There will only be one reason why, and that's the dollar bill."
Arroyo is about to find out what a human rubber band is worth.
Who are baseball's most durable pitchers?
Wall Street Journal
The names Mark Buehrle and Bronson Arroyo may not evoke Cy Young, but they epitomize the "take the ball every fifth day" cliché. Buehrle has gone 396 starts without a DL stint, easily the most among active pitchers; Arroyo is second at 323. Cain, Justin Verlander and James Shields also have been top-notch starters and workhorses.
High expectations in Cincinnati
"Guys are not going to be satisfied just getting to the playoffs anymore," receiver Andrew Hawkins said. "Now that we've been there a couple of years and our core guys have been together for three years, you see guys all focused toward that. There's a little better atmosphere for it."
