05-11-2017 GAME THREAD: Can The Reds Continue to Dominate the Giants?

by Mary 11. May 2017 18:50
Bronson Arroyo starts off the four game series against the team that it seems the Reds just played (only two games since they last met on Sunday).  Let's hope for good Arroyo tonight and a repeat of the offense that lit up the Giants last weekend.

by Mary 8. May 2017 10:37
A very successful homestand concludes with a short two game series versus the Bronx Bombers (does anyone still call them that?).  They are coming off a series sweep of the Cubs that combined with the Reds sweep of the Giants puts the Reds in sole possession (at least for today) of first place in the NL Central.  I am hoping that the letdown (and exhaustion) from their 18 inning win last night leads to a couple of Reds' wins.

The Reds have gotten back to the .500 mark for the sesason.  Sure would be nice to end this upcoming three game series with a winning record.  Bronson Arroyo gets the first opportunity in Friday's game, which for some reason starts at 6:40 PM instead of 7:10.

by Mary 1. May 2017 17:57
Lets hope for a better outcome than the last time the Reds were at home. Amir Garrett is pitching tonight and needs to get back to where he was his first two outings of the season (well, close to them at least, as they were outstanding).  Schebler and Duvall are heating up, and Joey is being Joey of a different sort (less walks, more home runs), and Snacks is back with two hits in his first five times at the plate.   Has there been any word on the walking wounded pitching staff?  ...

The Reds did pretty well the first time through St. Louis this year, but have fallen on hard times since then.  Can the decent starting pitching we saw them return and give the offense a fighting chance to come out on top?  Sure hope so, or this could be a really long summer.

Here's hoping Amir Garrett continues his sterling starts tonight against the slugging Brewers.  We can hope Eric Thames is entering a cold spell and doesn't go on another HR spree this week.

With the news that Tony Cingrani is on the 10 day DL and Phillip Ervin called up, we see more roster changes.  We can expect some more in the very near future as Devin Mesoraco and Rookie Davis should be back in a few days.     Let's hope the offense remembers what the bats are to be used for and actually support what has been very good pitching this home stand.

by Mary 18. April 2017 16:23
That rarest of species (at least in GABP) arrives tonight for a three game series--the Baltimore Orioles. There will be a few different names on the Reds' roster to greet them, with Sal Romana returning to the Bats after his not so great debut on Sunday and RHP Lisalverto Bonilla called up.  Bonilla is a mystery to me, but I gather he last pitched in the big leagues in 2014 for the Rangers (5 games total).  An old familiar name starts for the Reds tonight --Bronson Arroyo.  Sure h...

Coming off an unbelievable 5-1 road trip to St. Louis and Pittsburgh, the Reds look to maintain the special feeling to the start of the season by winning their 4th straight series.  The old guys are starting the first two games (Arroyo on Thursday and Feldman on Friday) and I hope Bronson turns it around and Feldman keeps it where he was his second start.  Who will pitch in Rookie Davis's slot on Sunday is still TBD.  My personal bet is that it will be Sal Romano from L'Ville, as ...

04-10-2017 Another Day, Another Series: Reds Head to Steel City

by Mary 10. April 2017 14:31
Reds start another series with the beanball warriors (AKA Pirates).  Let's hope the endless HBP and predictable retaliatory pitches are a thing of the past and not an ongoing thing for yet another year with the Pirates.     Hard to believe, but the Reds going into the series have the best ERA in the NL (three shutouts in six games--in spite of one 10 run blowout--will do that).  The bullpen continues to show that the last half of the 2016 season was only a sneak peak of the...
