In a 5 game series against our triple A ball club, who you got? I still take the Reds, but in five games.

I'll take the Reds 3 out of 5 games. Maybe the Bats if I can put a healthy Cozart, Alonso and Frazier back in Louisville.

To make the satirical point that it is at least questionable whether we are better than a AAA team at this point.

I didn't even write the thread, but I could still tell that was the point.

The hitting might be equal, but the pitching wouldn't be.

I am just your average die hard Reds fan, and what happened in Houston made me think that if they can take 2 out of 3 against us maybe Louisville can? I am fairly new to the site and was not trying to be negative, are you a moderator? Is there a problem with asking this question? I mean we have very talented guys in Louisville that are not getting the opportunity to play, so I thought it would be a good debate seeing how our Reds continue to struggle.

The Reds are obviously way better than the Bats, not even a question. That being said, anything can happen which is why they play the game. There are so many things that can go wrong (or right) for either team, that the better squad doesn't always come out on top. I still think the Reds would handle the Bats 90 percent of the time.

Will say this- Rosie Red, Mr. Redlegs, and Gapper together are no match for Buddie Bat. Buddie is a stone cold killer. Have you ever wonder what happened to Mr. Red?

Isn't Mr. Red doing time for hiring Dusty as manager? :D

How is it not being negative comparing a major league ballclub to triple-a? You as a "die-hard" fan need to learn some things.

id expect the reds to win 95-99% of the time.

What do you suppose I need to learn, Master? I am entitled to an opinion and right now I like my manager @ AAA/Sweet better then Baker. In my opinion I do not feel it is negative at all to compare the ball clubs, especially when there are players down their that are just an opportunity away from being every day MLB players( Mesoraco, Sappelt too name a few)!

I dont recall score or details anymore but seems the Mudcats beat em up pretty goods when they had the exhibition game in Zebulon a few years back.

I'd be more impressed that the current Reds would have to travel back in time to play the Riverbats, since they haven't been called that since like 2000.
Alert Marty McFly! Get the Delorian ready!

Hey, Kevin...I don't know you, wouldn't recognize you if I tripped over you, but for whatever it's worth, I am not at all offended by your question.
Could Louisville beat the Reds 3 out of 5 games? Absolutely... See the World Series of 1960 and 1990 as examples of big underdogs winning a short series.
And thanks for sharing your opinions with us on this board. We don't have to agree, but you have every right in the world to bring up the subject.
