D-Day's Reds Thread

Postby D-Day » Mon May 17, 2010 11:00 pm

Nice win tonight by the Reds.......Milwaukee's starter kept them pretty much handcuffed (as a lot of starting pitching seems to be doing to them), but once they got into the Brewer's bullpen it was lights out again. The Reds now sit in 1st place in the NL Central a game up on St. Louis.

They haven't done much but choke since I've lived here. They've had losing records since 1995 (I think) despite having decent teams. The team this year is eerily reminiscent of the '06 Tigers. Not much expected but they just seem to win. Once again, as usual, the NL Central was pretty much going to be the Cardinals division to lose as it's been since I've lived here. The Reds are getting great starting pitching from everyone but Harang for the last month. I don't know if this is just an incredible hot streak or if they are as good as their record so far. One thing I do like about the Reds is that they have built through their farm system and Walt Jocketty seems to be making just the right FA pickups and trades. This may be a fun team to watch this year

They should let Pete Rose in the HOF. Just give him an asterisk or something. It could be really fun, his display could be shaped like an asterisk. Everybody would have a good time with it.

At the least, they should induct his haircut into the Hall.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Arguing that point around here is like arguing religion or politics. You just don't do it......

D-Day, I gotta say, the Reds having gotten off to a good start is a total shock to me. I don't think it will last, but what the hell; enjoy it while it does.

I would tend to agree. Although it's a weak division, I think teh wheels are gonna come off the Little Red Bandwagon some time in June.

Francisco Cordero = Todd Jones without the porn stache and less command.

Way to load the bases (two walks aqnd a single) in the top of the ninth of a 5-3 game with no one out only to induce a 5-4-3 double play (resulting in a run) and a foul out...........and a 5-4 win but not without some heart palpitations.....

who would've thought that cordero would have had a better career, post trade, than anybody else involved in the Gonzalez deal.

Unbelievable last night. The Reds were swept by the Cardinals weekend before last and fell a game out of first. The sackcloth and ashes were appropriately broken out and what happened to the Reds? Well, they just went ahead and easily swept the Marlins at home and are playing for a sweep out in Arizona while the Cards have dropped four in a row. The Cards may have gotten the better of the brawl, but they're now staring at a 3 game deficit with only three games left with the Reds. Last night against the Dbacks, they were down 7-3 after seven and they proceeded to score 4 in the 8th and 4 in the 9th for an 11-7 win. I am liking the Reds chances more and more.

In other news, MLB surprisingly is going to allow the Reds to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pete Rose's 4192d hit at the ballpark on 11 Sep (which is the day he got the hit). Unfortunately, Petey is booked at a local casino that night and has been for quite some time..........for the same celebration. Cross Post MLB to HFD Late To The Party

Oh....Cross Post to Why I Hate ESPN. Colin Cowherd, you are a Grade A douche and epitomize why the E in ESPN is Entertainment. Why anyone looks at ESPN as some kind of media outlet for anything is beyond me. They're about nothing but ratings. BTW, Coward, so are your listeners.....especially the ones that are on the coasts, St. Louis, or Chicago. Fuck you.

See, now, you are going to stir up the whole "Woodwards Friend is an Apologist For Emporer Seligtine Because He Went To the All Star Game as a Media Person vs. Ansel Thinks Baseball Fucking Sucks Because of Their Naked Hypocricy Debate"

So, lying to Congress & using steroids to alter the outcome of games is OK, betting on games you team had no involvement is bad.

Bah.
