Fact: I forgot that dang smiley face... :bang:

My bad.



Why would you even mention it?

When you are up 7-1 over the best pitcher in baseball, and someone is complaining that 3 hitters are hittless and are "killing us", you can realize why the game thread is so unreadable.

Fact: no one is killing us tonight.

I agree with this, except for the "best pitcher in baseball" comment. I'd put a few guys ahead of Johnson. Lee & Wainwright off the top of my head for sure.

Paul Keels got the score wrong heading to commercial? Surprise..

Marty forgot the number of outs just now too. Banner night for the Reds broadcast team. :O)

Will Ohman, he's one of the guys I wanted the Reds to go after at the trading deadline.

He had, at the time, the best ERA in the majors.

But you are right.

My comment wasn't meant to be entirely accurate as to that statement, as it was not really relavant to my statement in any event. It was not a post comparing the relative strengths of the majors' best pitchers.

Because, it has been a slow game... A joke/jab. But, It is what it is...

I might just forget about RedsZone again for awhile...

Yeah, I know he had the ERA lead. But the season that Lee is having...WOW. That walk ratio is simply NUTS.

And yeah, I know you were just tossing out that as an example for the situation. Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in there. No biggie.

Despite the smiley gaffe, I chuckled when I saw your post. Keep up the good work. ( I feel like I need to add a smiley face or beer mug toast, but I'm not going to)

Wait? What happened? Heisey's on base, but I couldn't follow what happened.

Did it ricochet off of Ohman? Sorry, it was Phillips, not Heisey.

Nix k's. 2 down. Men on 1st & 2nd.

Votto gave it a ride, but Morrison pulls it in on the track. So it remains 7-2 heading to the 9th.

Jordan Smith on the bump.

Bonifacio leadoff double

Hmmm...they're making SOLID contact off Smith. Ramirez would've had a dinger there if it hadn't hooked foul.

What happened to RedsMan 3203?

Once again......something that doesn't show up in any defensive metric.

What happened to RedsMan 3203?

He was trying to make a simple joke but left off a smiley and people took him seriously...I think he left out of irritation. Simple misunderstanding, but what are you gonna do?

He was chased away for not taking the game thread seriously.

Wasn't even close...

Just so you know VR, both I and Puffy (and somebody else, can't recall who) didn't realize that it was intended as a joke/sarcasm. I mean those guys WERE a combined 0-fer, I just thought he was over-reacting....turned out WE were. Simple misunderstanding.

I fully understand--I went back and read the exchange. Hope he comes back.

Big win against one of the best pitchers in the game 7-2!

When/If he does, I hope he'll have learned something about himself, and will be mature enough to respect the sancity of the game thread. :beerme:

Best way to get the St. Louis series out of the mind is to sweep the Fish, right?

Solid outing for Edinson, great night at the dish for Nix (2 for 3, 2 bb), Bruce (2 for 4, hr), Rolen (3 for 4), and several others. Only 2 really struggled out there (Ramon & Edmonds). Janish went o'fer, but still had 2 walks. Great game fellas. Nice way to get back on track.

He asks if anybody can identify the guy sitting to Dusty's left. He looks extremely familiar, but I'm stumped. Anybody?

It's not Grandal, is it? I've only seen a handful of pics of him out of catcher's gear.
