Re: 6/17/13 Reds v. Pirates - Welcome to the bullpen, Mr. Cingrani
I have on many occasions told you, my Reds family, about marrying a Pittsburgh girl and the problems that has caused me (not with my lovely wife, but the in-laws). I think you're getting a taste this night. Dd to the fact that we get ROOTS Sports Pittsburgh here in addition to FSO. I couldn't resist turning over to the Pittsburgh station after the game and I heard the same thing over and over. Small ballpark, hitters ballpark, and cheap home runs. They roll out "expert" Kent Tukelve to tell us how the Pirates actually won and how Chapman is dangerous. Gawd, I hope so. Never mid that those Buccos played in the same place the Reds did and scored one run.
And yet,they have the force with them. They are pitching better than the Reds most days and hitting enough to win. With smoke and mirrors, but no matter, it's working so far. The Reds must take three out of four this series or my life will be Hell. Go Reds.
