    That's brutal. Cueto has his work cut out for him to get some early W's.

    I thought I was hearing them on the television broadcast (until my recording cut off at the 4 hour mark).

    I don't understand people

    Outside of Strasburg, none of them really scare the hell out of me or anything.

    There's some good pitchers in there, but they're all beatable.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Re: Reds better get the sticks going

    The game is changing, pitching is coming to the forefront, and managers are bringing in 5 guys a game who throw 95+ crooked stuff.

    Given our 50 year history here in Cincy of slugging and not much pitching, we are just not used to seeing our Redlegs struggle at the dish. The Reds were just below league average last year at runs scored per game, have added Choo, but lost Ludwick. I think this year will be about the same.

    Get used to it. Pray for pitching and defense.

    Its early but I really hope this team does'nt do what they did last year with their slumps.The whole team would go about a month in a slump and not be able to hit nothing.The pitching is already looking good like last year and I hope they don't have to carry the offense for a month or so when they get in these terrible slumps.

    After last night's games, I'm not terribly concerned - you might not be either, after all it is early. There were some very good swings put on some pitches that ended up being caught at the wall. In warmer, lighter air, a couple of them might still be flying. I can't think of three that were tagged that died and fell into the fielder's glove.

    I have to say I didn't really mind it as much last year when it first started-extra inning late game, was fun for the fans doing it. Got lil tired of it after that but hearing it opening day really annoyed me.

    Oh god, I forgot about the woooos. And here I made it almost a week without being mad at baseball for something.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Reds have scored 26 runs in four games.

    That's an average of 6.5 per game.

    I can like with that.
