Personally I never thought the Reds move to Goodyear was all that great of an idea. On the one hand, I'm ecstatic to have them closer to home during the spring, but there aren't nearly as many Cincinnatians in the Phoenix area as there are Chicagoans, Wisconsinites, Nebraskans, Iowans, Minnesotans and western Missourians. The (small) majority of people living in Phoenix from Ohio are from Cleveland and I'm worried about the potential lack of support for the Reds in the Valley. Compared to the Indians, they're an afterthought in the Goodyear facility.

As the old joke goes [paraphrased]: Most Cincinnatians don't know their way around the Tri-State, but have no problem finding the best route from Ft. Meyers to Orlando.

As for Rose, he may have been loading up on greenies (like most major leaguers of his time), but the man never shot himself up with anabolic steroids (that we know of) to get his nearly untouchable all-time hits record. Hell, it took him 22 seasons of baseball to break Cobb's record. How long did it take Aaron to break Ruth's record compared to Bonds?

Best I've been to so far. As far as I'm concerned the Cooperstown Poison Pale Ale and the BBQ menu totally rocks!
