Cairo ahead of Bruce? I mean I know Jay has struggled a bit w/RISP lately, and Cairo has had some success, but it just feels wrong.

They claim he is sick not hurt. His kids also have the same illnessRolen is an eggshell. A super player but you would think that whatever his kids have he would have had and had an immunity. But no...those 'roids screw you up for years.

7:30 first pitch, due to the lengthy pregame.


6:20 p.m. — The Reds announced that all tickets for tonight’s game are now sold out, including SRO.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., but with pre-game Hall of Fame inductions and iffy weather, that is not set in stone. Heavy rain here earlier, chance for more. -fay

You can't expect them all to be called balls. Umps start calling strikes after the bat sits on the shoulder.

But that did suck...

arkimadee
07-17-2010, 08:23 PM
thats some nasty poop right there.. yeah he'll prolly go about 5 but thats ok.. he doesn't need to throw more than 85 or 90 pitches in his first start

Reds
07-17-2010, 08:24 PM
he doesn't need to throw more than 85 or 90 pitches in his first start

probably so. dusty said something along the lines of -- he's thrown 90, 95 pitches but theres no need to be the hero tonight (and go 9 innings with 120 pitches).

FYI I have been reading some threads about Scotty Rolen, he really has the flu,my daughter talked to his wife during the All-Star game, everyone was really sick, he'll be fine! His back just needs some rest now and then. Thought I would set the record straight! Don't need any rumors getting started.
