    Per Jamie Ramsey, today's game is the Reds 20,000th game. That's a lot of game threads!

    Just a quibble too - it's actually a "Business Day" special.

    Changed it. Guess we need to stay PC. I'm sure the first game thread criticized manager Wright's lineup that day too.

    Dislikes. But it seems he pitches well on day games. I don't think he likes getting up before noon.

    OK so I want to apologize now. My 18 year old son along with 3 other 18 years olds from his baseball team left out last night after their game to go to today and tomorrow's game in Cincy. They are sitting in the Club section today so they can have "all you can eat." I assume the Reds will lose a lot of money today because of this and will probably not be able to make some moves toward the end of the season because of their extreme financial losses at today's game.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    His numbers are pretty close either way:

    Day - .264/.318/.437/.755
    Night - .265/.325/.435/.761

    Aside from Albert Pujols he hasn't any of these batters an awful lot. I would think that would be advantage Bronson. He has been relatively successful against Pujols. In 89 PA, Pujols has 'only' an .877 OPS.

    Only three Reds have face Blanton 10 or more times: Votto - .875, Phillips - .765 and Bruce - .533.

    I think his problems used to be pitching Sunday day games.....(usually after a long Saturday night of jamming)

    I hate Business Day Specials because that means the game ain't televised.

    Hanigan gets no respect from Dusty. He should be batting second IMO.
