Not sure if this has been discussed but I was looking at the 2011 schedule and the Reds play at St. Louis on April 24th and at Atlanta on May 29th on Sunday Night Baseball.

Booo. As a resident outside of the Reds standard viewership aera, that just means I won't get to watch those games at all. Fox inevitably either has Chicago watching the Cardinals, Cubs or the AL game.

Awesome!! Winning is definitely good. I bet the guys will love having the national spotlight a little more this year too. Just keep Brandon's mouth wired shut prior to them so there's no extra drama, LOL ;)

Memorial Day weekend in Atlanta?

That works for me!

Echo rmr for me. The fox sat stuff is bad news for out of cincy viewers. Here in balt will be regionalized from seeing any of those I suspect and there are no alternative viewing options to see the gsme when that occurs...

Bet the players aren't crazy about this. Night games on Sunday cut into their travel time.

I hope for nothing. I fear nothing. I am free.

That's a great point, but I'm sure they're excited about the extra exposure.

I'm just happy the Reds have as many televised games as they do. :)

It hasn't always been this way.

Glad to see expectations are being kept in check. Some people get carried away.

Gonna be real hard to beat 1976... that's the barometer I'm encumbered with.

Wish one of them were at GABP so we fans could experience the national spotlight a little too. Heck, if PBS can feel electric during MNF, imagine what GABP would feel like???

Luckily last year is the barometer that most of us younger Reds' fans have. I really don't remember much of '95 and definitely don't remember any of 1990. The barometer used to be '99, but now the playoff bar has been set. Let's hope the Reds can win a playoff series in 2011.

You guys would've lost your minds back in the '70's. ;)

No doubt, all we have is the 1975 World Series box sets and the stories from our older relatives. The Big Red Machine just doens't feel like "my" team. That was the great part about last year. My generation had to endure all of those losing seasons in the Lost Decade without even really remembering a time when the Reds were on top. Last year proved that the Reds could win a division crown and earn a trip to the playoffs.

Now the whole nation gets to watch the Reds on a couple of Sunday nights and hopefully our boys don't disappoint!

Yep, the 2010 season was good for all of us in Reds Country. I'm especially glad the younger fans finally got a chance to root for a winning team. I hope we all can root for a World Championship team very soon. :thumbup:

Another echo from me. Living in the DC area I doubt I get any of those games unless they are against the Nats or Orioles. :(

Hopefullly the Reds will get comfortable playing on the national stage and are less likely to choke. Good building block for the playoffs.
