View Full Version : Pretty cool that there are 4 Reds in the AS Game. This is the year the NL wins!

I'm sure there will be many years in the near future when we see 2-3 Reds in the All-Star game, but four is a rarity and I'm going to enjoy it tonight. And hopefully this is the year the NL ends this ridiculous losing streak. They are going to get it done tonight and some of the representatives from Cincinnati are going to help the cause!

I haven't cared this much about an All Star Game in a long time. I always want the league that plays real baseball to win, but when the Reds might be in the playoffs it intensifies the desire for a W.

I'm looking forward to sitting down with my girlfriend and our new puppy and watching the game. Definitely have a rooting interest this season.

I know, it's cool to actually care about the All-Star game again and be really excited for it. I don't expect Votto to take out an AL catcher in extra innings to win the game or anything (they don't have anyone named "Fosse" on their roster, do they?) but it's still going to be fun to watch.

Congrats on the new puppy! (And for someone with your looks, congrats on having a girlfriend too. Ha. Just kidding bud.)

You can't watch the player introductions and think that it doesn't mean anything to the guys who are there.

They'll remember it the rest of their lives.

I got chills watching the introductions and seeing FOUR of our Reds players out there with all those other great players. How can you not be at least a little excited for tonight?! This is fantastic. It's time for the NL to get a win! :D

If they really wanted to win they should have put OC in the 2 hole.

Scotty Roles baby! He got that whole rally started.

I think they were playing Drake in the background throughout the inning.

You are just killin' me here! This is supposed to be a positive thread. Let's save the "O-Cab sux" threads for another day. We certainly know there will be plenty of opportunities to mention it. :D

It's about dang time the NL broke through and got the win! Nice for our guys to get home field as they make a run for the World Series title. :D

That was a great game. I enjoyed watching it. It was so nice seeing multiple Reds in the game for the first time in years. Maybe next year we'll have even more at the game - maybe Bruce, Cueto, Leake, and Volquez?

OK......

Does anyone know the last time a Red scored a run in the All Star Game?

HINT: It didn't happen in 1982.

I know Davey hit a dinger in his back in 82...so you're saying it was more recent?

I remember Larkin scoring in one game. I don't recall the year though.

I am guessing Larkin as well. I was thinking that before I saw Sir Chuck's post, but he beat me to it.

Sean Casey would be my second guess.
