As the guy who posted the original comment that revealed Ben and Sam's prejudices against the Reds*, I am just tickled that the Reds organization has recognized my diligent efforts in my ongoing campaign against the BP Daily Podcast. I'll get you SOB's off the air if it's the last thing I do!

*actually, the conclusion of the original exercise was that they hate the entire NL Central... Cubs/Cardinals/Pirates/Brewers orgs, join the fight!

Didn't Tony LaRussa do Three pitchers, Three Innings each back with Todd Van Poppell? That is pretty close to the all-pen staff.
