    Reds @ Rockies 7-12-19 The Second half begins

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Would be nice to see 2018 Scooter.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    I don’t think I’d bat Scooter in the middle of the order until he starts hitting major league pitching again.

    Good to see that Senzel is apparently okay.

    I still say, "boo!", to the pitcher batting 8th. (Michael Lorenzen is the only Reds pitcher I would possibly make an exception for.)
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Lorenzen would be it for me, too. I don't even like to see Bell PH for him.

    Really hoping Winker and Gennett get going now.

    Those are the two guys who can get this offense moving forward IMO.

    you're a traditionalist, klu, which is why you're my favorite poster.

    Agree. I really don’t understand the strategy especially with Casali in the nine hole.

    I agree in this case. I only like it when we have an OB challenged lead-off type hitting 9th. Hamilton was a natural. If Peraza was in there, him too. Not anybody else really.

    Can't remember the last time we came out of the All-Star break on a roll (5 in a row or 8 of 10).

    Would surely live to see it happen.

    As far as the Golf Thread, we need to start nailing Birdies and toss in an Eagle or two, while avoiding Sub-Par Golf at all costs.

    Don't know if we were in the middle of a hole, but winning 7 of 10 to begin the 2nd Half is absoulutely critical.

    Can't rememember the last time the Clubhouse had a sense of urgency after the break. Always seems like they are more anxious to collect their paychecks.
