03-09-16 DOCPROC REPORTING FROM GOODYEAR

by DocProc 9. March 2016 18:57
Greetings from Goodyear where it's sunny, 80 degrees, and life is good. Even an 11-5 buttwupping from the Rangers today can't harsh my mellow. Bad baseball is better than no baseball at all. Random reflections on the day: --No batting practice on the back fields today because the team returned from Scottsdale after midnight last night. Did get to see pitchers loosening up on the field. Said hello to Jon Lamb and Drew Hayes. Also saw Cozart fielding grounders. --I know this is a first-world p... [More]

03-01-16 FIRST SPRING TRAINING GAME

by DocProc 1. March 2016 07:20
Hooray for March! It sure took its time getting here. Today is the first game of Spring Training. Cleveland will be the home team in Goodyear this afternoon. First pitch at 3:05 ET. Today's game, and tomorrow's as well, will be broadcast up here on FSO. I'll miss the first inning but hope to catch most of the rest of the game. I'll probably post a few comments along the way. Here is the lineup, via Mark Sheldon:

02-20-2016: Spring Training Has Arrived!

by Mary 20. February 2016 18:27
We timed out even with only a few messages on the last thread, so here is new one.    I saw a tweet from John Fay that was somewhat encouraging where he said that Devin Mesoraco caught as many sessions as any other catcher.  Hope he does not encounter any setbacks.

02-12-2016 Off Season: Less Than One Week Until Pitchers and Catchers Report

by Mary 12. February 2016 16:57
This has been a very quiet off season, both here on RO and in the Reds' front office lately.  Not much new to report, although I am sure that it will seem strange to the veteran players reporting to Goodyear to not have Bernie Stowe around any more. This has been an anything but quiet off season for me, as I sold my house in Manhattan Beach and moved to Portland OR.  I've been here for almost a month and love it.  Lots of things to do to make the house "mine", but I'm getting the...

02-01-2016: THIS AIN'T NO "MINOR LEAGUE TEAM"

by DocProc 1. February 2016 13:57
I've seen numerous people on social media refer to the 2016 Reds as a "minor-league team"--often when describing why they won't attend many if any games this season. They seem to believe that jettisoning Frazier and Chapman, and Cueto and Leake before them, means that the Louisville Bats will be in playing in Reds uniforms at GABP this season. I want to slap them upside the head for at least two reasons: 1. If by "minor-league team" they mean that our lineup will be filled with green prospects... [More]

by DocProc 24. January 2016 16:57
Hey Everybody: Here's the latest rumor on Bronson Arroyo. It's not much, but I'll say again that I'd LOVE to have Bronson on the staff this year. http://www.baseballessential.com/news/2016/01/24/sources-bronson-arroyo-throws-for-reds-in-cincinnati/ Gene, I'm guessing you got hit hard with the blizzard in WV. Holding up okay?

12-29-15: END-OF-THE-YEAR MUSING

by DocProc 29. December 2015 21:20
I've been chippy about the Reds this off-season, so allow me a somewhat optimistic musing as this year comes to a close. Here's something Paul Daugherty wrote in a column today: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE ... [More]

12-26-2015: It's Boxing Day (and You Thought This Was a Baseball Forum)

by Mary 26. December 2015 10:20
Time for a new thread yet again.   Hope everyone had a good Christmas and can now start counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report (and the Reds' Facebook pointed out that we are exactly 100 days from opening day).
