    Re: Reds Rainout?

    Thia game is going to be real hard to make up, the 'meet in COL and play 35 days straight' deal stinks to the high heavens for both teams.

    Hope the Reds don't have to make it up in San Fran, that isn't right eiher. Doing it after the regular season doesn't sound good but may be the only way to make it up in CIN.

    They could have gotten 5 innings in this evening. Whomever made the postponement call, made a bad call.

    Yep, should have stuck with their guns. Why make the grandiose announcement that "We're going to wait all day if need be" and then call the game one hour into the delay? Made no sense.

    We were sitting there all day ourselves. We would have stayed for an evening game. It was actually kind of pleasant sitting there watching it rain after we found some seats below some cover.

    I think you will be proven correct. The question will be that the Giants may need it though

    I don't see 1/2 game difference amongst the 5 playoff teams but it is possible SirFelix - I just hope it's not.

    I don't know the exact "politics" of how these things work amongst each team, but if I were to make a stab in the dark here, my guess would be that the Reds WOULD have waited it out, while the Giants were probably not as keen on that proposition. They have to be back home for a game tonight and the possibility of a game going into the late night hours, flying all the way back to SF, dealing with the time lag, etc. prob. was not something that they were too keen on dealing with. I do realize that they could have likely gotten 5 innings in and all, but there is always the possibility that after 5 innings the game is either still scoreless or tied.

    Like I said, I honestly do not know the inner workings of how these calls are made nor how much weight the opposing team has to toss in to the final judgement call, but I'm guessing what I stated above was a pretty good reason for SF not wanting to wait it out for hours on end.

    But $13 for tickets that are generally $35+.....I'll have to pick a good game.
    I was listening to the radio when they called/postponed the game and IIRC, they said that anyone with tickets to today's game could use them for any future non-weekend games. Someone can correct me if I'm crazy and totally heard that wrong, but I am pretty certain that that is what I heard them say. I also think they announced one specific date that said tickets also would not be good for, but I can not remember what that specific date was.

    Re: Reds Rainout?

    Why coiuldn't they make up this game July 18th? I know that's the end of the 4 day all star break but still this is a perfect time to make it up. The Reds will be home following the break. The Giants could come into town for one of those 12:35 business specials and be back to SF early enough to start their home weekend series. I really thought one reason they went to a four day break was to make up games like this when a team wouldn't be back again. Is it that taboo to play during the break? I have also read they are considering playing this game on neutral site on August 29th. Colorado is being talked about for that. How strange would that be? I hope they don't do that. I 'd rather not play it or do it at the end of the season.

    You are correct and the date they can't be used is Tuesday August 6th (Joey Votto bobblehead night). No one should be surprised that I know that date off the top of my head, LOL

    Good thought, but I believe changing the ASB from 3 days to 4 was negotiated in the last CBA. If so, that won't be an option.

    Correct, the CBA won't allow it. Btw, for the poster wondering which game the rain check isn't valid: August 6, Votto Bobblehead Night.

    Thanks. That's kinda what I thought. They probably wouldn't let them play even if both teams agreed to play. I could see the Giants needing the game at the end of the season to either clinch the division or tie for the division. The Reds having already clinched the playoffs and having to decide to play it straight or playing a lot of bench players.

    Does the rain out mean these hats won't ever seen on-field action?
