I’d feel a lot more frightened by Friday the 13th if it were a Monday….

…and no, I don’t steal my material from Garfield.


Reds Caravan Poster #3.  Collect them all right here on Better Off Red!

My favorite baseball writer, Meggie Zahneis, wrote a pretty cool piece on her experience covering her first press conference – the Barry Larkin presser at GABP.  CLICK HERE to read it. 


As mentioned yesterday here on BOR, the Reds’ Rich Linville will be competing on the brand new MLB Network gameshow, Baseball IQ

Today the Enquirer’s John Kiesewetter wrote a nice story on Rich.  CLICK HERE to read it.

Expect good news,



This offseason seems to be flying by now. I can’t wait until opening day.
