    Heading down for my 3rd game of the season. Last night was so fun and this Phillies pitcher should be no match for the boys.

    The last time I saw Donald Lutz live I caught his grand slam in Dayton and he signed the ball after the game for my boy.
    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.

    I can see him hitting 3 or 4 grand slams today (prolly close to a record)

    may have to shake off the rust with a 3 run shot to start

    Hate having Schumaker in LF. Prefer Lutz in LF and Pena at 1B. Brandon Phillips hitting third and Todd Frazier hitting 6th seems like a way to minimize the talent on the roster.

    Hamilton CF
    Pena 1B
    Frazier 3B
    Bruce RF
    Mes C
    Phillips 2B
    Lutz LF
    Cozart SS.

    When Votto comes back, slide him in for Pena and use Ludwick or Heisey in LF against a RHP and that's the A team for the next 6 weeks IMO unless an acquisition occurs. Skippy should be Phillips caddy against tough RHP and give Phillips rest and not a starting corner OF even on a limited basis. He can play some CF when Hamilton needs rest.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I wish they'd just leave the Todd Father in the #2 spot.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    A Rain Dog is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water so he can't get back home. A stranded dog, who wants nothing better than to get home.

    People who live outdoors, people who sleep in doorways, loners knit together by some corporeal way of sharing pain and discomfort.

    A term coined by Tom Waits on his album named Rain Dogs
    Inside a broken clock
    Splashing the wine with all the rain dogs
    Taxi, we’d rather walk
    Huddle a doorway with the rain dogs
    For I am a rain dog too

    This is off topic but I'm not starting a new thread for it.

    Mike Trout is a beast. You see his grand slam last night? He golfed it out of the park.

    Homer walks the leadoff hitter.

    After a rough start, Homer did provide the only wins for the Reds against the Dodgers and Giants so far this year. Coming off two strong starts.

    Another fine baseball moment that many may have missed last night.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Phillies starter has a 6.11 ERA. That actually scares me against the Reds.

    Big strike zone today. Hope Homer notices.
