01-09-2017 Countdown to Spring Training

by Mary 9. January 2017 21:09
I don't have the exact numbers, but we are more than half way toward the end of the Reds baseball desert.  Spring training is around the corner, and i can't wait.  I've got the college football championship game on, but can't get very enthusiastic about either team.  I'm tepidly rooting for Clemson because my cousin's son is a student there.   Just read an article on RedReporter providing 22 (million) reasons to love Joey Votto. Take a hike, Marty B!

Finally got around to using my laptop (for some reason, the dashboard hangs us when I try to use my iPad so I haven't been able to use that to open a new thread). Nothing much happening in the baseball world at this time, but pitchers and catchers actually report NEXT month!!!!   Hope everyone is off to a good start to their new year.

12-09-2016: What's Up in Redsland?

by Mary 9. December 2016 16:43
I saw that the Reds picked up a Rule 5 catcher, but have not heard much about any other personnel moves.  Maybe, or maybe not, something will happen in the remainder of 2016.  Something needs to happen before the 2017 season starts though.   I've added a couple of photos to show what a couple of inches of snow does to Portland. It will probably be another day or so until I can get out in a car.  I did walk around the neighborhood and met tons of neighbors I had never seen b... [More]

11-28-2016 Goodbye Thanksgiving and Hello Winter Meetings.

by RedFaced 28. November 2016 22:07
Winter meetings are scheduled for Dec 5-8 but the stalled talks on the CBA have stirred talk of cancelling the meetings.  I'm guessing they go on as scheduled and I doubt the Reds see much action during the meetings.     Of note is the fact that the big trade the Mariners just pulled off netted them a SS so that should officially close the book on the Cozart to the Mariners trade talks and rumors.  Not sure who that leaves as possible suitors for Cozart.  As the rest o...

I see we have once again timed out, so here is a thread if anyone hears anything they'd like to talk about.

11-07-2016 Offseason Begins

by Mary 7. November 2016 22:18
Strangely happy to see the Cubs win--mostly because the Cubs fans I know personally are so overjoyed and have waited for so  long.  My best friend's mother's 99th birthday began a few minutes after the Cubs clinched.  She was wearing her Cubs shirt and hat.  She had most of her extended family flying in to see her during her birthday week and she told them that this was the best birthday present she ever got.  This is just after being diagnosed with end stage lymphoma. &...

10-30-2016 Thread: This Could Be the Final Game in 2016?

by Mary 30. October 2016 18:11
The Cubs are choking at home, resulting in the Indians being one game away from a World Series championship.  Will the Cubs manage to send the series back to Cleveland, or is tonight the night Cleveland takes it all?  We'll know in a few hours.

10-22-2016 THREAD: Cubs Still Alive

by Mary 22. October 2016 13:47
And up 3 games to 2.  Hard to imagine that the world series this year could be the Cubs versus the Indians.  Not exactly a match that jumps to the top of the preseason prediction list.   Onward to the WS!!

by Mary 14. October 2016 16:12
Hell has not yet frozen over and the Cubs live on to the next round.  Can both of these states continue?  We'll see in the next week how they do against the Dodgers.
