    Posnanski hasn't even written his book on the Big Red Machine yet ... and the book "has already made him money."

    What a country! :D

    If JP promises to call out Joe Morgan for the idiot he is, in print, I'll be first in line.

    I'm excited about the book just because of the author.

    I wouldn't otherwise have any interest in it, but with Joe P writing it, I'll definitely check it out.

    The man gets it...in so many ways. Wonderful writer...But then everyone on this site already knows that.

    Feel the same way, Brett.

    I will be buying this, even though I was eight years from being born and have never given one silly little damn about the Reds in my life.

    I'm going to try this out the next time I get stopped. Thanks, Joe.

    I can see it now: Mikey in Pittsburgh.

    "Where you going in such a hurry, son?"
    "Well you see I have a book about the 1985 Pirates that I'm working on and..."
    "Jason Thompson? Sammy Khalifa? George Kendrick? Larry McWilliams?"
    "Yeah, you liked them right?"
    "No, they sucked so much they made me hate baseball and at least three of them had sex with my sister."
    "Oh."
    "Do you like prison movies, son?"

    If that's not sig material, I'm not sure what is.

    Hint: If you're driving anywhere in the southeast, say you're writing a book on Dale Earnhardt Sr.

    First off, make sure you show the cop the "3" tattoo on your rear end.

    "Son, do you know what you were doing?"
    "Yeah. I was driving back from Kannapolis. I'm writing a book on Dale Earnhardt."
    "Junior?"
    "Ironhead."
    "Oh. He's my idol."
    "I've heard of stories where he ran Darrell Waltrip into the wall. Bill Elliott, too. But when someone did it to him, he whined like a baby."
    "Put your hands behind your back and spread 'em, son."

    As a giant Reds fanboi, I'd buy a book on the Big Red Machine if it was written by a chimp. Poz is a very nice bonus.
