2013 Game Thread Starter Schedule

by Mary 27. March 2013 15:24
As we begin our fourth year here as RedsOctober, we have continuing opportunities for all to put their own special spin on the Reds season by contributing starters for various games/series. To start with, I will be posting about a month's worth of games ahead for signup, but you are always welcome to look to the schedule further out and claim some later games for yourself (I personally am claiming game 7 of the Reds World Series championship season right now).   The variety of outlooks (from unbridled optimism to abject despair and cynicism) make each new thread starter something to look forward to on a regular basis.  We hope to continue our tradition of excellence this year and invite all to participate.  SDDennis has agreed to once again kick off our season with his unmatched style, but other than that (and my clinching game of the WS), everything is up for grabs. Just reply to this thread (or send a note to starters@RedsOctober.com) when you want to sign up for starters.     2013 Schedule Apr 1-4 vs. Angels 1-SDDennis, 2-4 Amy Apr 5-7 vs. Natinals -AATeam Apr 8-10 @Cardinals-btalbert Apr 11 Off Day Apr 12-14 @Pirates redfaced Apr 15-17 vs. Phillies btalbert Apr 18-21 vs. Marlins Mary 18-19, River Otter-20, Mary 21 Apr. 22-24 vs. Cubs btablert Apr 25-28 @Natinals SDDennis/Mary Apr 29-May 1 @Cardinals AshlandATeam   May 2 Off Day May 3-5 @Cubs 4th-GeneWV May 6-8 v.

2012 Thread Starter Signups

by Mary 28. March 2012 20:05
As the hours until opening day are ticking away (do any clocks still tick?), the time has come to start the signup sheet for starters for this, the soon to be highly successful 2012 Cincinnati Reds season.  While it is somewhat preferable that entire series be taken by one person, that is not always possible, so please consider which games you can provide starters for and sign up below.  We do have our opening day starter named--SDDennis has agreed to provide the inspirational start for the third consecutive year. Now the rest of us need to pick up the rest of the games and keep the RO traditions alive.
