  1. this wasn't addressed to me, but Milwaukee goes to St Louis again second weekend in September. I would have thought they could finish this game then. I think maybe Rob Manfred just wanted a shorter game. Who knows.
  2. even though the Reds will finish third at best, this has been fun watching this pitching staff. This is one fine rotation.
  3. Yes, Aquino has been fun. We were at the three home run game. He hot homers in innings 2,3,and 4. Next at bat, with a huge Reds lead, the Cubs pitcher offers 4 crappy curve balls way outside. I was hoping for my second 4 homer game. I have noticed he is getting tons of curves and sliders low and away. We will see if he adjusts.
  4. As a Reds fan I officially throw in the towel. Just too far back .too many tea,s to climb over for the wild card. They might, and probably will, get hot and get kind of close, but then they will lose a few in a row again. I think they should sell soon. Alex Wood pitches for the first time Sunday. It will be his only start before the break. Cubs fans will enjoy Derek Holland's interviews. He does impressions and is hilarious. I think Goldy is Goldy again
  5. 40 years ago tonight...hey it was the seventies... https://www.freep.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2019/07/12/detroit-tigers-disco-demolition-chicago-white-sox-lgbtq/1682439001/
  6. Players on my favorite team...hmmmm.. Reds- Pete Rose, Barry Larkin, Jose Rijo Pacers- Darnell Hillman, Billy Keller, Victor Oladipo
  7. Philip Irvin is a former first round draft pick who kind of stalled in the minors. He has been up and downbut the last 2 years he has performed well when playing. If he could continue this as a regular who knows?
  8. This is an odd season. As JayKirk says. it is long. As a Reds fan, if I knew the Reds would be 3.5 games out on this date as they are, I would have been thrilled, after the ineptitude showed in Cincinnati for so long. And they are 3.5 out. And still in last place. I wonder when the last time a team was 3.5 out in the standings and in last place. I really don't know what to think.
  9. We were in Evansville last weekend and went to an Otters game. Great experience. The field is about a hundred years old but is pretty well kept. We were given free tickets because they had some turned back in by people who couldn't go. Concessions are priced nicely. A 16 oz beer for 5 bucks. They have beer battered french fries which are the best. I enjoyed it so much.
  10. woo hoo. We are going to the Reds and Cubs game in Zinzinnati Tueaday. 10 rows behind the Reds dugout. It is Bark in the Park night, where people can bring dogs to the game. I bet someone sets behind me with a sheepdog that will lick the back of my head all night. But th weather is supposed to be good..
  11. Currently the Reds are carrying 14 pitchers. The bullpen is overextended and noone has options. Called Matt Bowman up. I hope they let Zach Duke go. He has been awful. and Garrett is a lefty and has been good. I wonder if Kemp will be let go for a roster spot for Senzel. Probably not. That is lots of money to eat.
  12. One hell of a pitchers duel tonight. DeGrom and Disclafani both pitched gems. The light hitting Jose Iglesias is the Reds offensive MVP so far. Great with the glove but I expect his number to fall back to where they are on the back of his baseball card. Ride 'em while they are hot.
  13. There are reports that the Reds won't substantiate that #6 overall prospect Nick Senzel will be called up Friday. If so, a roster spot will need to be opened as he is not on the 40 man. Probably Gennett gets transferred to 60 day IL. If I told you that the the Reds at the end on April would lead the league in ERA,earned runs allowed, OPS against, home runs allowed total bases given up, and 5th in WHIP would you assume they would have a much better record? All that offense they got and the pitching was the question. Their pitching in great, the offense is putrid. Who would have thunk it? I can't wait for Senzel.
  14. Even though I am a Reds fan I don't like how few Cubs games I can see on Direct TV. I think their broadcasts are the best, both technically and the broadcasters. Rasiel Iglesias has figured it out. He started off rough but he has struck out the last 9 hitters he has faced in a span of his last three games. I hope he sits tomorrow.
  15. I think I need to celebrate. The Reds actually won tonight. I looked yesterday and they had to third lowest ERA in the NL. Last place. I do think the offense will wake up, but I fear they will be too far back from St Louis and Milwaukeeand probably Chicago. There pitching has been prisitine recently.
