Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.
Forget the batting order, there aren't very good options with a tough lefty. None of the righty hitters for the Reds are hot.
Just want to comment that it's a tribute to the Reds' pitching depth that with Latos out, and Bailey and Arroyo coming off subpar outings, Johnny Cueto is there to pitch tonight.
And with plenty of backup. Looking for Johnny to win a relatively low scoring game.
Billy Hamilton pinch runs in the bottom of the 9th to steal second and score the winning run.
Getting swept in the final series by PIT was the plan. The Reds were lulling them into a false sense of security so they can pummel them tonight. The Reds have the 'rats right where they want them!
I was pretty even as far as my excitement/mood went most of the day but I find the nerves/anticipation creeping up on me.
Come on 8:07!

Assuming we're having a separate pool for who wins swag tonight? Over/under on swag factor for each team?
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
