    9/2/2015 Reds at Cubbies Afternoon Baseball

    We have afternoon baseball at Wrigley Field today. That does not happen very often anymore. They used to play them all in the afternoon. I would watch a game in the afternoon on WGN and one at night on WTBS everyday during the season. For me that was near baseball heaven.
    The Great Schu makes another appearance in LF for our pleasure. Also the Pena HR watch is offically on. Will he hit one before the season ends in another month?

    And here's Sean Marshall enjoying his drink. If you were wondering what Sean Marshall has been up to....other than looking very old.

    I can't blame the Reds for not playing him in Wrigley Field. That's tough to play LF for a veteran. But DuVall should be in there Friday night for the rest of the season.

    Now we know the cure to shoulder ailments. I had wondered what he had been up to.

    Not sure exactly how to express this -- but this whole Duvall to LF thing sounds like a forced, desperate move to find anybody who can fill LF in 2016.

    The guy is a corner infielder. I can understand having him learn the outfield too. But why was it necessary to completely switch his position the minute he came over to the new team.

    He didn't hit at AAA for the Reds, I'd guess this whole position switch had a role. He has the winter to learn LF. Depth behind Frazier and Votto are important goals for the future too. They can rest a few games in September with Duvall playing his comfortable positions.

    Not sure this is particularly clear, but I would have handled him differently.

    Booger Homers to start this bad boy off in a good way!!!

    The Cowboy said the Reds should hammer Hammels. A good start to that.

    A nice catch by Coughlan on fly ball in the corner.
