I have been a terrible contributor this season. Even though I've given up I don't want to see this place go away so here is a weak effort but an effort non the less.
I really hate the Braves. I'd like to take a second to thank Jacob from Denmark for coming to the US and attending Texas A&M fro the summer. Why would I say this? Because Jacob is the former exchange student of my good friend and misguided ATL Braves fan.
We were doing a boys weekend in Cincy for this series until Jacob i... [More]

I learned today that tonight's starter for the Reds, Dylan Axelrod, is a friend of a friend in Santa Barbara. My SB buddy says that Dylan is a regular topic of conversation in their monthly poker games. So that gives me a bit (more) of a rooting interest.
Frazier is still out with back problems. Hope my apartment mate has another good night at the plate.

I thought I would put up a starter for tonight's game even if the lineups are not yet available.
Several tweets indicate that the Reds' latest Cuban pitcher is finally in town. Guess the visa problems are taken care of for now.

Just realized that Jocketty's contract expires at the end of this season. He was re-signed late in the term of his last contract (September signing I believe) which leads me to wonder about his future with the Reds.
Do you think he will be re-signed? Should he be re-signed? If you were in his shoes and you knew you may not re-sign but instead head elsewhere would you put much effort into making moves that would basically make a future competitor better?

Still a bit cheesed about the ending to last night's game. With a man in scoring position and no outs in a one-run game, I'm not giving away an out to a bunt. Let the next three batters swing away, taking their best shot at getting a hit and a RBI.
Oh well--on to tonight's game:
And here's a cool "moon shot" from last night:

Last weekend our guys took 3 out of 4 from the Marlins. I would be happy to take 3 more from them this weekend.
Their pitcher tonight (Nathan Eovaldi) throws serious gas. Last week he was hitting 100 mph in the first inning and Welsh couldn't believe it. I hope our guys are patient and selective this evening.
Here is the lineup:
And here's a reposting from last night, in case you missed this tribute to my new apartment mate:
