06-27-2017 GAME THREAD: Back Home Again

by Mary 27. June 2017 18:46
I watched yesterday's debacle off and on, but one part I enjoyed was Jim Day's long interview with Bronson Arroyo.  He said he was offered the opportunity to hang around for the rest of the season and he looked forward to it.  As Jim Day said, not many players get asked to hang around after it is obvious that they are done. Bronson's got a great sense of humor--said he was going to be spending more time in the weight room working on his beach body.

06-05-2017 GAME THREAD: Redbirds in for Four Games

by Mary 5. June 2017 17:31
Will the Reds need to make some callups to cover this series or are the players on hand healthy enough to handle the games?  The lineup for game one shows Billy Hamilton back leading off, but Scott Schebler still absent.

Our old (literally) buddy Bronson starts the first game of the weekend series in Atlanta.  May he find the edges of the strike zone and lose the home run ball.  Speaking of home run balls, three Reds are in the top 5 (well there are quite a few tied for fifth place with 14 HRs) in the NL for HRs, with Scott Schebler alone on top of the stat pile.     If only there was some starting pitching with this team....

05-29-2017 GAME THREAD: Joey Goes Home

by Mary 29. May 2017 13:00
The Reds return to Toronto for the first time since 2009.  If I am remembering correctly, during that series Joey Votto was just returning from DL for to the anxiety attacks he had been having due to his father's passing the prior year.  It's hard to believe that the Reds have not been back since, but that's the case.  One game under .500 going into the series--would sure be nice to get over that hump.

Three games this weekend versus the Phighting Phils.  Can we hope that the Reds can once again reach (and in best case, go over) .500 versus the 16-29 Phils?  It would be nice to take advantage of losing teams when the opportunity presents itself (Toronto starting Monday is not much better than Philadelphia).  The really big question, however, is how many starting pitchers will still be standing after the latest DL stint for Garrett.

Back to back series in Cincinnati and Cleveland with the first two games at GABP  and the next two in Cleveland.  Not sure what to expect from the Reds.  They seem to have plenty of offense (and don't throw in the towel when they get behind), but wow, can they also give up the runs.  Really would like to see that slow down.  Still no imminent signs of the cavalry riding in from the DL to pick up the starting pitching.

by Mary 19. May 2017 18:06
Yikes--not only do the Rockies have the most wins in the NL, they are also 13-6 on the road (better than their 13-10 at home).  Let's hope Mr. Bonilla is as good as he was in his debut last weekend and that the offense remembers that the goal is to score one run at least more than the defense gives up.

05-16-2017 GAME THREAD: Reds Back to NL Central Vs. Cubbies

by Mary 16. May 2017 15:44
A new series starts tonight and it would be nice to start a new win streak as well.  Losing three in a row after that 17 inning game sucked the life out of the momentum the Reds carried into SF.  Maybe it can be regained in Chicago.
