Posted this last night.



Not sure where else to put this, but just got back from the game. It's official...my wife feels that it's her fault. She is now 0-7 lifetime @ Reds games :(

Got to sit about 30 rows back behind home plate again tonight, thanks to a certain Reds employee (Thanks again!), in the players section. Sat right in front of Brandon Phillips fiancee'. She was pretty awesome...not only a beautiful girl, but really funny and shared a ton of insight. Since the game was pretty wretched from the 2nd inning on, the 3 of us kept BS'ing thru the game to help the time go by.

2 things of note:

1) BP's hand is still pretty messed up. He's too stubborn to mention that to anyone who can do anything about it, but that is definitely a major contributing factor as to why he hasn't been too hot since he got plunked.

2) Bruce, for the first time since they came to Colorado, took batting practice w/ the team. He seemed to be taking it VERY easy on his swings and not using his upper body at all. Just hips and legs, but, considering that, looked good.


Oh and quite a few of the guys signed today: Votto, Rolen, Gomes, & BP. I got Joey to sign his SI cover. Framing that one...


So even though the game was 98.43873% wretched, we had a good time. We need to win tomorrow, if for no other reason than my wife's complex that it's HER fault they lose. :hug:


Heading to the park now. God, please let us snap this streak...for my wife's sake if nothing else! :thumbup:

Maybe that weird inning will get the team mojo back. Phillips was only able to score because of a blown call, wp, and a swinging bunt that was somewhat misplayed by the pitcher.

Yea he is, though his August split wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (.726). He's definitely getting fooled/overpowered a lot more later in the year.

On Sunday when the Reds took the lead with an early run, they flashed a graphic that said the Reds won over 80% of the time they scored first.

We ended up losing SUnday, and we've scored first twice against Colorado and already lost.

Actually, it is almost impossible for him to step on the catcher's foot and not touch part of the plate. Hernandez would have had to have step on the foot perfectly for it not have also touched part of the plate. He was likely was safe.

Next maybe we'll hear "so-and-so is a good fastball hitter". I hate that phrase. What baseball player isnt? I have never heard "so-and-so is a great slider hitter".

Johnny Bench was a great slider hitter. He probably hit more homers off of sliders than fastballs. The one he hit to win the 1972 NLCS was off of a slider. But he's the only one I know of.
