Bruce gets a day off against a tough lefty. Not that I want Bruce to sit, but good see them with more confidence in Heisey.

I'm assuming, even though the game is in New York, the game will be blacked out on ESPN for us in Reds Country because MLB expects us to travel to NY on a Wednesday for the game?

I love MLB Baseball, hate MLB the company.

After great production from Hernandez and Hanigan, circumstances leaves us with Corky Miller, a huge black hole in the lineup. Fate is sometimes cruel.

Isn't the game on FSO?

Hope so...

Yeah it is. But my cable company doesn't offer FSO HD, while I have ESPNHD, plus I'd like to hear Joe and Jon.

I wouldn't know, I never watch ESPNs games because, well, I don't have to rehash, everyone knows why.

Would be nice to hear other announcers' perspectives, though. Mainly the HD thing, though :)

Charter. They may have it on one of the extra packages, but I'm not sure. My stepdad works for them so we have pretty much every channel. Also don't get NFL Network or MLB Network

Okay...a bit late to the party, but thanks for the heads up on the game being on ESPN. I appreciate it guys.

Apparently that ball of Phillips' hit the foul pole. I though it was a triple all the way. Oh well. 3-1 Redlegs. Make it hold up Bronson!

Cabrera is really testing what little patience I have with him.

On the bunt, it's the catcher's responsibility to cover third if a baserunner on first attempts to go first to third. It's been that way for a century as that was a trick Ty Cobb would pull as a runner on first and teams were forced to adjust.
