    Re: 9-23-17 Saturday - Reds hosting the Beaneaters of Boston

    This is the 34th game Reds have played against a LH starting pitcher this year.

    Reds have faced RH starters 121 times. Under 22% of starting pitching facing the Reds this season has been left handed.

    The NL Central was particularly heavy on RH starters this season. There has been a recent reduction in LH starters in MLB generally.

    Reds should consider this in forming next year’s team. In particularly, facing so many righties, Reds should consider keeping Scooter Gennett who hits righties so well.

    OTOH, Reds have won only 8 of the 33 games against lefty starters. So there is a need to keep some effective RH hitting. But it’s such a small sample, not sure much can be derived from that W-L record.

    I don't understand what this means. What sort of metal plate? Can't find anything on it.

    The plates that the Red Sox hang on the manual scoreboard on the Green Monster. They brought the #61 plate that they hang to identify the uniform number of the pitcher in the game.

    Bogaerts just sneaks a double down the 3B line, goes to third on passed ball and scores on a sac fly.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    The real deal, too, weathered and dented. It was really cool.

    Would it kill the Reds to spring for green undershirts and helmets on Irish Day?

    Thought we were working on development here, why walk an #8 hitter early in a game to face the pitcher?

    Today is "Irish Heritage Day" at the ballpark. (I was unaware until I turned the game on.) They are wearing green jerseys, caps, and socks, but still have red undershirts, helmets, and catching gear.

    At least Bronson was wearing the traditional white home uniform during the pregame ceremony.

    So, it's something they invented to get more use out of the green unis beside just on St. Patrick's day. They need to stick them in a trash bag IMO.

    Then throw it off the suspension bridge.

    I don't mind them on St. Patrick's Day, but I don't know why they are wearing them now. But I also don't know why they were wearing the "Los Rojos" jerseys last night, yet they don't wear German-themed "Roten" jerseys for Oktoberfest.
