Opening...Early Afternoon Game?
Well, we've had Opening Day and Opening Night...shouldn't the entire series be Opening Something? I thought it might be Opening Mes... [More]
Game Time: 7:10 pm
Pitching Matchup: Mat Latos vs. C.J. Wilson. Here's the preview from reds.com.
As we wait for the "corresponding roster move" following Ryan Ludwig's successful shoulder surgery this morn... [More]
Lots of these are exactly the same as last year. A few additions, at your suggestion, which I hope will make things more interesting throughout the season instead of just at the beginning and end. New categories have an asterisk.
Prize to be determined (which means I need to dig through my Reds stuff and see what's there, and maybe snag something from Opening Day, depending on how much of a zoo it is). I'll let you all know!
1. First to homer--BP 2. First to steal a base--Heisey&n... [More]
So, this is karma wanting Chapman to start? Two starters hit by batted balls in as many days? Yikes. Glad it sounds like both Latos and Arroyo are fine.
Here are a few of the best pictures from my "real" camera. Sadly, my iPhone takes better ones (if it only had a decent zoom).
And finally, I'll be putting up the prediction thread very soon. Does anyone have suggestions? Are we okay with something very similar to last season's?
On the eve of heading to Arizona, I find myself excited, as usual, about many things. Also I find myself procrastinating, as usual, with a work project that has to be done before I leave. Anyway, here's at least a partial list of what I love about Goodyear:
1. Live baseball.
2. Sitting in the sun when it snowed in Ohio yesterday.
3. Debating players' performances and likelihood of making the roster over drinks.
4. Eavesdropping on whoever's in the practice field outfield from behind the back... [More]

I'm just going to continue to put a new post up every time I want to. Whatever. I miss baseball.
Potential topics for discussion:
--The upcoming magical winter meetings during which nothing ever seems to be accomplished (BUT THIS YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT. OR NOT.)
--The upcoming magical Mayan calendar doomsday date. Hey, it would get me out of room mother responsibilities. (SERIOUSLY, WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA. I AM SO NOT SUITED.)
--The following... [More]
We're not likely to have heavy traffic over the holidays, but I decided we needed a new thread (less scrolling) before I head out of town for Thanksgiving and only have mobile access for several days.
Feel free to open up any topics, as usual. Anybody asking for anything Reds-related for Christmas? Anyone going to Redsfest? Anyone have deep-fried turkey fire stories?
Happy Thanksgiving to all :)
The old thread was getting a little long. If anyone has content to add, I'm happy to paste it in....just doing this for mobile convenience.
