Just about the only question remaining in the Reds season is whether or not Homer Bailey pitches again. Price hinted that he might start Monday night. Guess we will have to wait and see.

A strange 4 game series with the Pirates starts tonight, with a day-night doubleheader tomorrow and a Sunday day game. Only two of the games are being carried by FSOhio (no makeup game and bumped by the Bengals - Steelers game on Sunday). Such is life when your team is in last place.

Time for a new thread as the magic 7 days and LOCK is about to happen.

I never want to see Tony Cingrani (or Ohlendorf) in at the end of a game with the opportunity to allow the tieing run anywhere near the plate. Last night's abomination may have come with Ohlendorf pitching, but it was all on Cingrani. He came into the game in a NON SAVE situation and managed to get two outs but did his all too frequent free fall into total wildness and managed to leave the game with three runners already in and three more on base. That's SIX batters he pu... [More]

Just a couple of memories of Jay Bruce over the years:

Here is the Reds' lineup for today's 3:45 EDT game against SF:
And here is a (lengthy) pipe dream I sent to SonOfDoc this morning. Though ya'll might find it amusing.

For old time's sake, here are the lineups in a new thread starter:
