08-09-2016 GAME THREAD: Time To Forget

by Mary 9. August 2016 16:17
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...

07/16/2016 GAME THREAD: The Second Half Continues

by Mary 16. July 2016 11:06
Here's hoping that the second half brings hope for the following years.  It was fun watching Disco and Iglesias pitch last night and have the feeling that those two were not going to disappoint. Cingrani had his all too frequent bout of the nibbles and allowed four baserunners in his 2/3 of an inning.  I would say his time as a closer with the Reds is coming to a close :-)

I think this means that the trade rumors will take over all the baseball talk in Cincinnati.  We need to enjoy watching Jay Bruce and possibly Zach Cozart while we can.

07/02/2016 GAME THREAD: Will a New Thread End the Losing Streak?

by Mary 2. July 2016 16:01
I surely hope so.  Any streak with a 14 inning and a 15 inning loss in it is WAAAAY too long.

06-18-2016 GAME THREAD: Reds Welcome Another Lefty to the National League

by Mary 18. June 2016 12:25
Yes, it is Cody Reed making his MLB debut today.  I hope he continues the encouraging performances of his fellow Johnny Cueto trade parts, Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb.  Three actual lefty prospects in the Reds system is a real novelty. Heres hoping we like the outcome today.

06-10-2016 GAME THREAD: Have the Reds Reached Bottom and Are Getting Better?

by Mary 11. June 2016 14:56
Sure feels like that is the case, but I will try not to be too optimistic about things like having Tony DeSclafani starting instead of Alfredo Simon, and Michael Lorenzon and Raisel Iglesias in the pen instead of anyone not named Wood, Cingrani, or Ohlendorf (I know that those three are nothing to brag about, but with some backup for the rest of the pen duties, I think they will be better than they have been, which has been about average).  The bats have also been coming alive, albeit somew...

05-31-2016: GAME THREAD: Bombs Away, It's Coors Field Time

by Mary 31. May 2016 18:13
We are about to time out on the prior thread, so I am putting up a new starter.  Jabber posted a link to Jamie Ramsey's article on Duvall and I thought I would include it here. Let’s talk about Adam Duvall.  In yesterday’s game against the Rockies at Coors Field, Duvall belted 2 home runs to give him 13 on the season (tied for 4th in the NL).  He’s having a fantastic month of May, batting .301 with 11 homers, 24 RBI, a .327 on-base pct. and .720 slugging ...
