That thursday night game at Mobile looks like the game to be at. Could be historic.
Maybe there could be a RedsZoner with video.

Ok, here's the question: (dare I suggest it but ... ) could Hamilton be another Morgan?
I'm just talking strictly offense, could he make the same kind of impact? Improve the Reds offense, not just one notch, but one or two by himself. Obviously, Hamilton won't have Morgan's power and the obp might be wishful thinking. But, with Billy's speed and possible improvements to his baserunning ability ...
The Reds offense jumped from 586 runs scored in '71 to 707 in '72 (eventually reaching a peak of 857 runs scored in '76). From '70 to '76 the Reds were in the playoffs 5 times with around 100 wins every year except one. Could Billy be the key to another run of playoff appearances?
