05-31-2016: GAME THREAD: Bombs Away, It's Coors Field Time

by Mary 31. May 2016 18:13
We are about to time out on the prior thread, so I am putting up a new starter.  Jabber posted a link to Jamie Ramsey's article on Duvall and I thought I would include it here. Let’s talk about Adam Duvall.  In yesterday’s game against the Rockies at Coors Field, Duvall belted 2 home runs to give him 13 on the season (tied for 4th in the NL).  He’s having a fantastic month of May, batting .301 with 11 homers, 24 RBI, a .327 on-base pct. and .720 slugging pc...

05-24-2016 GAME THREAD: Even With a Complete Game Thrown, Losing Continues

by Mary 24. May 2016 17:35
Brandon Finnegan threw probably the best game of his young MLB career and had the misfortune to be up against Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.  A 1-0 complete game loss has to be both encouraging and discouraging.  Good because it shows that Finnegan is all we have been believing him to be as a future ace level pitcher, bad because two hits by the offense in a game is not going to win many, if any, games.  Can the endless seeming loss streak stop in my former stomping grounds of L...

by Mary 7. May 2016 17:22
The Reds are currently on a three game win streak (as Hebron said at the end of the prior thread, thanks God for the Brewers) but have, to our great relief (pun?) ended the streak of games in which the bullpen allowed at least one run at a record 23 games.  Hope to see some more Votto and BP home runs so we can see this again:  By the way, Brian Giesenschlag ‏@BGiesenschlag  2h2 hours ago   On his much publicized celebrations with Brandon Phillips Votto ...

05-02-2016 GAME THREAD: Cueto Returns and Mesoraco Out

by Mary 2. May 2016 18:33
It looks like Tucker Barnhardt is becoming ever more essential  to the Reds as Devin Mesoraco was placed on the DL today with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.  Rotten luck continues, as Snacks has pretty much been disabled since he signed the multiyear contract. On a slightly happier front, Johnny Kueto starts tonight against his old team.  Should be fun to see him again.

04-26-2016 GAME THREAD: Maybe (or not) a New Thread Will Bring New Results

by Mary 26. April 2016 17:02
Reds pitching is on a hopefully unrealistic pace to completely obliterate the single season home runs allowed by a team record.  As has been the case often when losing, most (in yesterday's game, all) of the opposition scoring happens along the lines of walk a batter or two then give up a long ball.

04-21-2016 GAME THREAD: Can the Home Wins Continue? Cubs Arrive

by Mary 21. April 2016 17:05
It's been two seasons so far:  home and road.  Needless to say, the home games have been a lot more fun, as the Reds have won all three series so far while only managing a single win in six road games.  Which team will show up tonight?

Now, honestly, who would you rather watch--the originally scheduled, but tender bicepped, Alfredo Simon, or top prospect Robert Stephenson?   I thought so.
