Don't know if anyone else has been following the La Russa story on ESPN's front page, but the STL fans over there are hilarious.
Ahh, I love it when we sweep both the Cards and the Cubs within one week.
I've been working on a Reds video the past couple days. Lemme know what you guys think.
I have a task for you, if you should accept it. At the end of the season, in addition to the team video that I'm sure you already planned on doing, make a highlight video of nothing but Brandon Phillips defensive plays. My guess is that you'll be lucky to get it edited down to 15 minutes of footage.
Back to back losses to the Pirates? :/
Were supposed to be getting things together to face Philly, not getting worse!
I love losing to the Pirates. That's a quality baseball team.
Any have a link to listen or watch the Met's and Yankees right now?
Losers of 6 in a row.
Volquez sent down to minors.
The Reds had a magical season last year. They are not a top tier team. Cleveland & Philly have proven that. The Reds are going to have to learn from this or they wont win the division.
As expected, the Phillies dominated us last night.
If we win one game this series I would be shocked.
If my memory serves me correctly Duke lives in the Bedford area. Hope you were able to stay safe tonight Duke.
Nice 19 innings last night. Lol, that was rough.
Carlos Fisher threw 5 good innings out of the bullpen. Happy to have him back and healthy. Reds do have a good pen, just stinks we lost A Rhodes this season.
Bounce back win for us today. I feel it.
Jay Bruce is on fire another HR. He is on beast mode.
4 - 4 right now
Reds need this W to break even for the series
Jay Bruce. So hot right now. Bruce.
This team needs help. We have good pieces to continue on in the future (Phillips, Votto, Bruce, Stubbs, Bailey, Chapman, etc), but it was obvious we had glaring weaknesses last year in the playoffs. I still don't understand why more moves weren't made to shore up problems at LF, SS, and the starting rotation. I think we're going to continue to see inconsistent outings until some of these problems are resolved. In the meantime, we'll need to be clicking on all cylinders to stay near/at the top of the NL Central.
Volquez defines this team right now. Total Lack of Concentration. The Reds are 7 - 11 in one run games this season. We have seen it also on the basepaths this year.
I am not in panic mode. Rolen is getting back from injury. Bruce is on fire. They lost to two quality teams [clev/philly] Keep in mind Reds win that 19 inning game they break even vs Philly. Crazy you go 19 innings the first game of a night/day matchup & then your starting pitcher [h bailey] leaves the game early the next day with shoulder stiffness.
What was embarresing to me was when we lost in the 19th inning with the heart of our lineup facing an INFIELDER! Not even a pitcher, and we lost....
[QUOTE=pacer4ever;1236037]Wow what has happen to Jay Bruce his swing looks terrible now. Has it been like this all season? his fundamentals make Fonso's look perfect. This game has been frustrating for both offenses. Pretty sad that i now expect it we are terrible this year at scoring runs we have no speed and cant run the bases and cant hit with RISP. We should be out of contention pretty soon we play terrible baseball all around.[/QUO
Look what Jay Bruce has done since you criticized him in the last 2 weeks. He has batted .442 with 8 HR's & 12 RBI's in his last 12 games. He may win player of the month.
Greinke vs Reds tonight. Brew Crew is terrible on the road. Great @ home. Soo much parody this whole season. The Pirates may not even lose 90 games this season.
