Billy Hamilton has become what we all hoped he would be -- a game changer. His defense continues to absolutely amaze everyone. Dan Straily has been a particularly fortunate pitcher to have many of Billy's most spectacular catches occur while he is pitching. Straily always cheers when they happen and the two of them make the highlight reels. The sixth inning last night showcased one of the most mind boggling catches (and that is saying something when you look at his complete bod... [More]

I noticed we were about to time out on the prior thread, so am putting this up to keep things going.

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... [More]

Just a couple of memories of Jay Bruce over the years:

Here is the Reds' lineup for today's 3:45 EDT game against SF:
And here is a (lengthy) pipe dream I sent to SonOfDoc this morning. Though ya'll might find it amusing.

For old time's sake, here are the lineups in a new thread starter:

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.

I surely hope so. Any streak with a 14 inning and a 15 inning loss in it is WAAAAY too long.

Today’s matchup features Anthony DeSclafani, previously scheduled to be the Reds’ opening day starter, against Luis Perdomo who has bounced back and forth between the rotation and the pen. He brings an ERA of 9.00 and a WHIP of 2.12. In other words, this might be a chance for the Reds to get their offensively offensive offense back on track. He’s a righty with a total of five major league starts which means the home team will enjoy a rare edge in starting pitching experience. I... [More]
