    No runs one hits for the Twins. 3-0 Reds after three. Gosling doing well thus far.

    The Reds are going to have much improved pitching. Three runs is going to win a bunch of games this year.

    Like getting inside the 30 and then spending 3 plays centering the ball for a field goal.

    I was wondering when we might see him. It will be interesting to see how he fares.

    Narron will be trying very hard to shave 100-125 runs off the team's total runs scored this year.

    In fact, out of fairness, I think the Reds should stop scoring after they reach three runs this season just to keep the games interesting.

    I hadn't seen that analogy before Krono, but that may be the best analogy I've seen.

    What would be more painful is if our roster includes Rhodes and Machado. With Andy at the plate, I'd squeeze there too.

    Reds leave one on and go to the bottom of the 4th still leading 3-0.

    Which is why you likely won't see it. Nothing wrong with practicing the play when you get the opportunity, be it in the 1st or the 9th.

    is it me or is Lancaster writing to us cryptically? He mentioned "your pal Anderson Machado". That's writing to the masses.
